Are you sure they are footswitchable? I didn't see a footswitch for it in the booth today. Perhaps that's not ready yet.

With all the preamp bells, whistles, and pre-amp tubes of a PT50 or my EH3? No. It's not what I'd want in an amp.

That is quite the homage to danish furniture design from the last 50 years so I think is that John uses that as inspiration for an amp box. Coolness all the way on my eyes.

Why? Do you really think its significantly cheaper to make a smaller power amp. By your logic a 50w head should be half the price of a 100w head.

I'd love a fully featured 3 channel head in 5w with power scaling. A PT5. I'd expect that to cost about the same as a PT50.


No, this whole boutique thing went out of control price wise. I fully praise the genius of JS, but my not gear whore self, is just refluxing on the prices.
This 5w thing cost exactly the same as an EVH 5150III 50w, with 3 channels, midi control and a headphone jack for silent stuff, recording out and whatever, but since it is 50w, you can take it to a gig and play. 1999$ for the Bogner 15w? ROTFL

Will check it out tonight at the Suhr factory party id assume.


Man, maybe I am a cheap bastard but I'd have a fucking HARD time paying $1700 for 5 watts.

Can't wait for a post-Suhr party update! Pics/sounds please.


The Bogner Atma is an 18 watter, which puts it in he same league as the badger. $1700 street is not bad.

Reg. watts and price, there's no linear correlation. A great amp takes time to build, wether it be 5 or 50. I've spoken to both Reinhold B. and Dan Boul about this.

Guys I played this amp as a proto a few weeks ago, and the one at the show I played yesterday, it sounds friggin awesome. And it's super versatile- you can make it like a cool clean or edge of breakup fender, or make it do a killer marshally hi gain that's tight, or more like a jack white-ish Silvertone about to explode kind of sound. It has an eq similar to the Kelley- active boost and cut. Lots of ability to shape the tone with just treble and bass.

The overall thing is- it sounds like a vintage ptp amp, that direct link between your fingers and the speaker thing- like there's not too much crap in the signal path, if that makes sense. Like a great old Fender, Marshall, Trainwreck, etc etc the Kelley has this too, as does the SL68. But it sounds like it at like, TV volume, ha! Truly big amp tone, that compression and feel/response, like a big amp, but at low volume. I think it'll sound huge with a mic on it.

Pete has surely spent more time with this than I have but if I was looking for a small amp to do VH I'd go for the Pink Taco instead. I could see the Corso being more versatile though.

Wow this looks really nice !
Judging by Petes review it seems like this one has cleans!

Most I have tried so far sounds like a tiny terrier :wink:
