I had the pleasure of recording a couple new demos this week for Henning Amplification. This soon to be released amplifier follows Henning’s fireworks theme, appropriately named the Bottle Rocket. This small box, 50 watt, EL34 based amp packs a heavy punch without compromising string clarity or the ability to clean up using only your guitar’s volume control.
There are currently two prototypes of this amp, consisting only of a minor difference in the preamp section. The difference is subtle but certainly audible so as you listen to these new Henning amp demos be sure to put on your cork sniffing attire and come up with some creative terms to describe the differences (wooly, woody, warm, wicked, weird…).
Whether one or both versions will be released is still under consideration but to my ears you really couldn’t go wrong with either one of them.
The demos are located in a new area of the Amp Demos section where you’ll not only find the new Bottle Rocket demos but also a demo of Henning Amplification’s Cherry Bomb.
This site has been in need of renovation for years so here we go… Please be patient, I’m getting content back in place but didn’t want to wait until I had this site done before yanking the stagnant, outdated eyesore.
I’m ready for the next chapter of life so after years of foregoing live performance, primarily because I really couldn’t deal with the man-drama, I can hold out no longer. There are some interesting things in the works which of course, being “band” related could fall through but if it doesn’t I’ll soon have the opportunity to work with a singer who’s timbre, range and style I’ve had a great appreciation of for several years now.
Outside of the new direction, I’m feeling rejuvenated, ready to write and above all else, READY TO ROCK!
