Bootlegger Guitar - Amp, Pedals and Tubes




Bootlegger Analog Love

Bootlegger Blues 30W Head

Chris Baurer; The Band Lexington Los Angeles, CA

I have been a true believer in the Bootlegger 30w combo amps for the past several years. The pure tube tone and consistency of the single-channel controls met the challenge of my decades of tone-chasing. For flexibility I recently purchased the 30w head in order to run various cabinets and speaker changes without having to replace speakers in the combos. 

The sound is every bit as great as the combo amps! These amps have obsoleted my use of other “major” brand amplifiers. My experience is that each of the popular brands sound a specific kind of way – and they are locked into that character. My Bootleggers have the ability to cover a wide range of styles and deliver exactly what I am looking for regardless of the musical genre needed for the session or performance. 

It combines the characters of my old amps without being “typecast” in those roles. Plus, why pay more for advertising, branding, dealer markups when you can get professional-grade gear direct from the manufacturer? Bootlegger for life!

Bootlegger pedals

I bought the Tube distortion pedal first and it made me get rid of every distortion pedal on my board yeah it's that good almost toooooo good. Very powerful so you need to dial it in. I just got the overdrive pedal yesterday and not surprised it is just as good. I use these through my 2 1978 Marshall 50 watt heads and it takes them to a new level. 

The overdrive is so nice and warm and the distortion can just melt your face if that is what you want. These pedals have so much flexibility the controls actually work! Guitars look good also but I have 27 guitars and my wife will leave me if I buy another….GREAT tube pedals buy them well worth the money!!! You can get any sound you want, even using them at low distortion level creates this sustain and smoothness…..rock n roll!!
