BOGNER ECSTASY CLASSIC
The first Ecstasy model the 100B was released over two decades ago in 1992. It was the time when most of the people where using external multi channel pre-amps to achieve a vast variety of sounds, some used multiple amp setups. Reinhold realized two things early on, a split system of pre and power amp can not give you the dynamics and response of a single circuit which incorporates both, second there is a need to make an amplifier head which covers a huge tonal pallet of tones but with the organic feel and tone of the good old amps from the 60's.
The end result was the 3 channel Ecstasy with the possibility for the user to customize the amp to her/his taste via the multiple switches in pre and power amp. At that time the Ecstasy was in a class by itself as the most flexible amplifier and defined the word boutique amp.
Eric Johnson a purist and the Godfather of multi amp setups tried the amp and bought one and took it immediately on the joint tour with BB King, it might be very well the only multi channel amp he ever owned. The Ecstasy became a favorite for every style and genre of music, Steve Vai, George Lynch, Brad Whitford of Aerosmith, Walter Becker of Steely Dan, Buddy Guy, Steve Farris of Mister Mister, Mark Goldenberg of Jackson Browne, Christopher Cross, producers like Dave Jerden (Rolling Stones, Alice in Chains), Michael Beinhorn ( Korn, Red Hot Chili Peppers), Silvia Massey (Tool), Mike Clink (Guns & Roses, UFO); you get the picture.
This Pre Owned Amp features the classic 3 channel all tube design, and tube buffered effects. The amp is in excellent condition with 1 cab missing 5 grommets on the back and one bent wheel.
