  • Vintage King's Pedal Line Grows With Bogner


    While both Reinhold Bogner and Jorg Dorschner were born in Germany, their random meeting, eventual friendship and decision to move to California would change their lives forever. Bogner moved to America in 1989, just two years before Dorschner, and began to cultivate a niche in the Los Angeles gear scene. This was the start of Bogner Amplification.

    Kicking off a new era of epic boutique amps, Bogner and Dorschner helped recreate the way that the general public looked at small-run amplifiers. Now, the duo is doing the same for the pedal game by introducing a new series of effects featuring transformers from Rupert Neve Designs.

The focus of our conversation now turns towards UTA's MPEQ-1 rack unit, a Class A mic preamp and EQ, based on Valentine's original console design.

    As UTA's product base shifts from consoles to outboard gear like the MPEQ-1, the ideal behind the products still remains the same. The focus remains on creating products that are uncompromising and fit Valentine's specific needs, all the while knowing that as long as there are others who require flexible gear, UTA will be around for years to come.
