Bogner Uberschall Twin Jet

GJ7T0352.jpg“UBERSCHALL” IS GERMAN FOR “SUPER-SONIC”, AND THIS BOGNER MODEL FROM A FEW YEARS BACKforms the basis for the new Twin Jet—a name that harks to its twin channels and independenttone controls. There are no voicing switches on the Twin Jet, though it does have a set of globalDepth, Presence, and Volume controls. Also, the Jet’s send-level control doubles as a variable volumeboost when no effects are connected in the loop. In this mode, you switch the effects loop offto get your boost, which, although slightly counter-intuitive, is an effective way to use the tubecircuitry to instantly punch up the volume of a solo or rhythm part. A 2-button footcontroller isincluded, which connects to a pair of jacks on the rear panel—one for channel selection and theother for loop activation. Cosmetically, the Twin Jet looks splendid in its white covering, althoughcorner protectors should be installed to prevent the seams from splitting apart. The narrow windowson the front panel feature fiber-optic backlighting to indicate which channel is selected andto make it easy to see the control labels in dim light.

The Twin Jet also varies from the original Uberschall in that its Clean channel has been revoicedto deliver higher-gain sounds and the output stage has been beefed up with KT88 tubes to increasepower, headroom, and tightness. According to Bogner, the matching 4x12 “Uberkab” has alsobeen redesigned to deliver “a more in-your-face sound and enhanced note definition.” So it’s nothighly surprising that the Twin Jet is an aggressive sounding animal with some serious attitude.The Clean channel has lots of overdrive potential and great dynamic response—if you’re the typewho likes to ride a guitar’s volume knob to go from gritty rhythm textures to scorching lead tones,you might find yourself doing a lot of playing (or at least the first set) on this channel alone.There’s also a feeling of monstrous reserve power in the Twin Jet, which is certainly a boon forplayers who like their amp’s core tone to stay firm and focused no matter how hard they pummelits front end with pedals. Switching to the Dirty channel brings on a torrent of distortionwhile keeping a similar backbone of tightness, focus, and presence. The Treble control is fullyuseful here as you can turn it way down to elicit fuzzier textures without losing detail. The grindpotential of this channel is unreal, and even settings of one half on the Gain control yield tons ofsustain and touch-responsive feedback. The wicked sounding Uberschall Twin Jet is a sick ampfor hard-rock and metal—quite possibly the baddest Bogner yet—and while its über demeanorwill likely endear it to some players more than others, this is an amp you’ll want to try just tosay you did. —Art Thompson
