    Or whatever the fuck AMT is referring to?

    https://amt-sales.com/preamps/preamps-la-2/amt-b2/

    The only thing I can think of is the Halfer Triple Giant, but there's no way that AMT took, out of all of Bogner's history, some unknown-as-fuck preamp that only like one person in the world used. :lol:

    Only other thing I can think of is that it's a typo, and they meant the SHARK channel of the Bogner Fish?

    I've just been curious about the B2 since I'm a huuuuuge Cantrell fan, and I love his tone, especially the 2006 - 2008 live period where he used Bogner fishes again.

    I thought it was just based off the shiva.

    I may contact them and ask them for details

    Or just check out the XTC red. :lol:

    I'm not too fond of the Uber in my Helix. Need some different Bogner flavor.

    I’m guessing it was a blurb written in another language that was poorly translated, and not proof read very well.

    Edit- here’s another from the C2:
    This preamp is able to emulate the unique sound of Engl's third cousin Cornford characterized by clear tone, diversity and minimalism. One C-2 drive channel provides wide overdrive range from slight crunch to biting high gain.*

    I'd think that too but the Shark channel is pretty low gain, unless he was just bullshitting a description by throwing in what he thought were unobtanium buzzwords for people who didn't know any better when it came to the fish.

    That's also something I thought about. The Shark was the "crunch" channel. Although IIRC the Cantrell mod added more gain to the shark channel so maybe they somehow got a hold of a Cantrell-modded Fish? Or it's just a shitty translation and they meant to say Fish Preamp. :lol:

    Oooor they really did get a hold of an old Bogner Triple Giant and decided to base things on that.

    I really need to email them. :lol:

    No the AMT sales guy is correct. All of Jerry Cantrell's Fishes had a modded Shark channel, you can tell because it has an extra knob where the switch would normally be. Reinhold modded about 25 of the original Fishes with this mod and they went to people like Dan Spitz and Cantrell along with producers like David Jerden.

    This mod is based of the Sharp channel on the original Bogner Triple Giant not the Halfner version, you can find schematics of it on SLOClones don't just take my word for it.

    By the way I have an original Fish with the Cantrell mod and here is a clip of mine, note my Shark channel has the extra knob not the switch.

    Hope this helps.

    If you're asking about my clip it's just the stock mic on the iPhone Xs Max which is a pretty damn good mic but if you check out the other clips on my channel most are just stock iPhone recordings few are going through my DAW.
