Handbuilt and handwired by Reinhold Bogner himself with NOS Parts (all resistors are NOS). This is the only one of this units that exists worldwide! Nearly mint condition.
It was introduced in 1997 at NAMM and Frankfurt Musikmesse, where the German distributor sold the prototype. It was thought to be an answer to Mesa Boogie's V-Twin, but with a better sound!
It' a very hot (300V on those preamp tubes!!!) two 12AX7 / ECC83 equipped pedal with six controls (separate treble and bass gains!!!), two footswitches and fixed mains cable.
Everything is built by hand in this box - even the aluminum profile on which the tube sockets are mounted. On the inside, the pots are marked by hand.
This is an instant Bognersound that is VERY tweakable. You get sounds out of this box, that sound like an amp or a stomp box or anything between. With a Fender Amp, your guitar will scream. The Fango worked very well with every amp I tried it with (Fender combos, Marshall stacks, THD univalve, bivalve and flexi (these are really honest amps), vintone clipper etc.). It even adds its "tubish" character to solid state amps.
- Bass Gain (a unique and very useful feature in a pedal)
- Treble Gain
- Volume (Master Output)
- Middle (acts more like a contour knob)
- True Bypass Switch
Lots of Gain and Boost possibilities and always a kind of "amp feeling" (which a lot of pedals miss).
