Reinhold Bogner had been designing and building amplifiers long before leaving Germany for Los Angeles in 1989. Soon after arriving he quickly gained the respect and trust of many influential players including Steve Stevens, Dan Huff, Allan Holdsworth, Mike Landau and Steve Vai, with each of them seeking his skill to modify and custom build their amplifiers.

Word travelled quickly that an insanely talented amp designer had just arrived in L.A. and this lead to Edward Van Halen entrusting Reinhold to overhaul and revitalize his iconic Marshall Plexi. Eddie was very pleased. Bogner Amplification was born.

The incredible Fish preamp came first and soon after, in 1992, Reinhold released the Ecstasy amplifier which was the epicenter for a new era of boutique amplifiers, and this was just the beginning.

Relentless in his pursuit of creating new, unique and inspiring tones, Reinhold continues to discover. His designs are unlike any other yet they incorporate the feel and tonal inspiration of classic circuits but with amazing flexibility and sonic range.

Over time the company as well as the product line has grown but never has quality or customer service been sacrificed. We look forward to creating designs that continue to inspire.

Thank you for your support,
Bogner Amplification
