Bogner Helios 100 Head is a boutique guitar amp made in the U.S. and featuring hand-wired turret board construction with two foot switchable channels and foot switchable FX loop/boost.
Helios is available as 50 or 100 watts with EL34 power tubes.
After countless requests, Reinhold Bogner revisited his vast amount of detailed notes that go back in time from three decades of archiving, modifying and designing amplifiers.
Through this treasure of documents lives the aural mojo of clients such as Eddie Van Halen, Steve Stevens, Jerry Cantrell, George Lynch, Michael Landau + others. With this past knowledge Helios delivers Rock's deepest roots with 40 years of iconic and modified Marshall tones.
Should you buy a 100W or 50W? Much like the old Plexi type amps, Bogner Helios versions sound and feel different. The 100W is bolder, with punchy bass and a bit tighter than the sweeter sounding 50W. If you are leaning towards the 50W for it's lower power, consider the 100W Helios since it also has a 30W mode and captures the more iconic 100W sound and feel. However, if you favor the 50W versions of the old Plexi type amps then the 50W Helios will be the right choice.
