Bogner Enters The Pickup Market

IK Multimedia's MODO BASS

Bogner is known for massively high quality amps (there was also the Bogner Alchemist line, now discontinued, which sounded great but had a few quality control problems, if the emails I received from people who read my review are anything to go by). Their pedal line with Rupert Neve Design transformer has just made it to stores, and now they’re entering the pickup biz with a PAF-style humbucker. They’re available in bridge and neck versions (Bridge – Alinco II at 8.5k;  Neck – Alnico III at 7.9k), in Traditional or F Spacing. They have 4-conductor wiring and a Bogner “B” etched into the cover. These are actually being made by Arcane, which is an interesting choice: Bogner’s a pretty small operation so I guess they don’t have the capacity to do these in-house. I imagine folks would be pretty excited about these if Reinhold Bogner himself was winding them in the brief moments in between designing incredible amp after incredible amp. Speaking of Bogner, this has always been one of my dream amps. Some day, Bogner, some day…
