The Bogner Alchemist 112 delivers professional, beautiful, complex tone no matter what style or rig you throw at it. The Alchemist 112 is an open-back single speaker combo, with two channels and two different gain voicings within each channel. The array of 6L6 and 12AX7 tubes allow for a gamut of tones, running the range of classic California clean to molten lava Bogner shred, from Vox chime to classic British crunch. It also includes footswitchable Reverb (Plate, Hall, and Room) and Delay (Ducking, Analog, and Tape) in parallel to ensure the utmost in signal quality, and the delay is even treated to an onboard Tap Tempo momentary button. The effects sound phenomenal -- you'll be able to ditch your pedalboard and bring just the Alchemist 112 out to a gig and still nail the tones you would usually tote your whole board along to achieve. At this price point you might have expected Bogner to skimp on the speaker, but skimp he did not -- the Bogner Alchemist 112's onboard speaker is absolutely top-notch, being the world-renowned 12-inch Celestion Vintage 30.

Two Channels to Hold You

Within the the Bogner Alchemist 112's two channels, you're liable to find any and every tone you're likely to need as a guitarist, from the cleanest of clean to the hottest of high gain. And unlike many other full-range tube amplifiers, the Alchemist 112 offers an extremely gradual gain curve, allowing seamless transitions from channel to channel without any pops or unforeseen volume peaks or valleys. Plus, each of the Bogner Alchemist 112's channels has a selection of mini toggle switches for tailoring your tone to your playing style in situation, with Deep, Bright, Mid, and Punch switches handling the brunt of the duty.

Four Buttons, One Footswitch

The Bogner Alchemist 112's included tank-like footswitch combines the best of both form and function. The four buttons allow for switching between the Gold and Mercury channels, initiating a Boost within each channel, and toggling both of the internal reverbs and delays. That boost function is actually quite interesting, as it works differently depending on what channel you're on. When using the clean channel, the boost works like you might normally expect, simply adding a few decibels of power to your tone to put you over the top. However, when on the Alchemist 112's Mercury channel, the boost adds a whole different dimension to your tone -- instead of just making it louder, the boost actually thickens up some of the ever-important mid and upper-mid frequencies, perfect for cutting your solos through the full band mix. Rounding out the list of thoughtful features, the footswitch included with the Bogner Alchemist 112 utilizes an included XLR to XLR cable -- rather than using some sort of proprietary multi-pin behemoth, Reinhold opted instead to use a cable instantly accessible to anyone in a pinch.

If you need a professional-level amp with a huge selection of onboard tones and are having a hard time justifying dropping the coin for some of the other boutique amps out there, give the Bogner Alchemist 112 a shot -- it'll put a spell on you.

Product Description

The Bogner Alchemist 112 Guitar Combo Amplifier is inspired by classic Californian-flavored amplifier designs with a modern twist. The Alchemist 112 provides sparkling cleans, touch-sensitive leads and a bright and colorful crunch that are coaxed from its power section and poured from a premium Celestion speaker.

Features

- 1x12 open-back combo
- 6L6 class-AB power section and five-12AX7 preamp; selectable power section
- Channel 1 (gold): Gain, Treble, Mid, Bass, Volume, Crunch mode, variable Bright, Deep switch
- Channel 2 (mercury): Gain, Treble, Mid, Bass, Volume, variable Bright, Mid Shift
- Shared: in parallel, Reverb Type, Reverb Level, Delay Type, Delay Level, Delay Repeats (Feedback), Tap Tempo
- Premium Celestion speaker
- Four-button footswitch included. Functions: Channel Select, Boost, Delay, Reverb

Beginning clean and fast, featuring an open top-end and tight bottom-end, Channel 1 opens gradually to present simmering blues tones. Advancing toward saturation, Crunch mode turns up the heat adding pick response and increased tonal complexity. Channel 2, achieving critical mass, invokes the famous white-hot Bogner gain: creamy, modern and screaming with sustain. Conjure the legendary Brown sound by switching the selectable power section from 40 watts to 20.

The Bogner Alchemist 112 also features reverb and delay that will breathe life into your sound. On their own journey, the effects remain separate from the original signal, occupying their own circuit. The result is a rich, living and breathing, fully realized resonance composed entirely of nature, philosophy and maybe a little magic.
Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (11 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Exceptional Amp. Great Value."
Sound: Bought the 112 b-stock from ZZounds. Amp arrived in absolutely perfect condition. Had some slight microphonics initially that I cured by moving the preamp tubes around. Decided to swap out all tubes with Tung Sols. Glad I did. Amp is even more amazing now. I have owned and used a number of amps (Fender, Marshall, etc.) in the past. This has the best tonal qualities of these amps and offers much more flexibility in sound options. Feature: The reverb and delay are both exceptional. Tonal shaping capabilities on both channels (Gold and Mercury) are almost infinite. Would have a hard time understanding how you couldn't get the tone you want out of this amp. Ease of Use: Even with so many tonal choices, the controls and functionality of the amp are very intuitive. Yes, some of the toggles are small, but they are easy to remember and use--even in low light situations. Quality: The 112 version is surprisingly large and very heavy. Solid construction throughout. Every aspect of the amp is very nice and rugged. Internal connections, etc. are all first rate. (I know it's a US designed/Chinese manufactured amp.) Value: Purchased the amp for $699. New preamp tubes for about $70. Well worth that investment. Even at $1,399, this amp would be a good value. Manufacturer Support: No experience with support. The user manual is a little sparse, however. The Wow Factor: Amp looks killer. Great lines and retro kind of design vibe. Overall: Extremely satisfied with the amp. Would recommend highly to anyone who wants a full featured tube amp for home or professional use.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Get out your best potions and chemicals cause the Alchemist will help you build a great tone every time."
Sound: Alchemy fits the bill of this sweet little amp, very versatile. You might have to EQ in post production unless you have some pro (expensive) pre amps. Great, great resposiveness which is why I bought it, the cleans, partial dirty and raging distortion all come flying at you, much like a Fender classic but is way more flexible. You can achieve a lot of great tones from this amp with no digitized buzz getting in the way that occurs even with the best modeling technology. The cleans sparkle very beautifully. For sure use it live and for recording but this thing speaks well on stage whether you want to sing, bark, cry or shred. Pedals do very well with the alchemist and there are endless ways to in line your overdrive, distortion, chourus, flangers etc. I have actually not tried the effects loop yet because there had been no need. Just plug in and play in any situation. This thing is pretty loud for 40 watts! In a metal band you might need to mic to the PA if you are ultra loud. Your guitar bros will be trippin on this thig because you can just keep getting more and more out of it. I love it and can not stop playing until my hands are worn out. Really, really great for the blues and any type of expression. Hook a screaming demon wah pedal to this thing and OMG, eyes will pop! Feature: OK there is no direct line out, what's the deal with that? That's the only reason I give an 8 here. The pedal is cool with the boost really making it even more flexible and diverse. The little "shaping" switches on the amp are difficult to see though but I think Mr. Bogner wanted a low profile look to off-set the overall classic design. Once you have a tone set it should not matter much except when recording, have a pad and pencil ready. The mid range shift can be a pain because there are too many ways to tweak it but if you know what you want its all there. It would be cool if there were an ultra clean setting/ switch so you would not have to turn the gain all the way down on the "gold" channel to get acoustic type sounds. Effects loop is included. Ease of Use: The alchemist is very easy to use with very intuitive feel to it. It can really suprise you at times. Very professional, match it up against any marshall or fender, I have and I bought it instead of the others (I already have a marshall and a line 6 Vetta II). The hand book has some decent classic settings to get you rolling then just tweak from there. You need something new that is high quality? This is it. Quality: Top notch quality, built like a tank and just as heavy. Almost 80 lbs it think. Get a dolly. I've had no issues with it in 6 months. Value: Its about the right price especially if you can find a sale/ blowout or have a coupon for a local store. Manufacturer Support: N/A The Wow Factor: Yeah its cool looking. You thought Bogner was going to cut short on great looks? Its a great edition to my arsenal. Overall: See above about comparing to Fenders and other amps. It really needs a direct out though so you can record scratch tracks with out the need to mic up. I love getting he speaker to over drive at high volumes, it justs so juicy I can't get enough. I don't foresee needing another amp for many years.
