This XTC was purchased at the Walter Becker Julien’s auction.
Julien’s listed the amp as “A Bogner Ecstasy 101A Amplifier brought on tour throughout the 1990s and early 2000s as a backup to the main Bogner Ecstasy. Used on the Art Crimes and Everything Must Go Tours as a main component of his legendary overdrive sound, affixed to the front with an adhesive label reading “BOGNER 1.” The rear panel is inscribed with the serial number 18807 on top of the serial sign “_.” Housed within a black road case stenciled with “WB-3.”10 by 27 1/4 by 10 1/2 inches; road case, 14 1/2 by 33 1/4 by 14 1/2 inchesPROVENANCE From the Estate of Walter Becker”
It will come with Julien’s hangtag.
The road case has a sticker that says New Ecstasy Head #107. So this could be the 107th white chassis 101B ever made. There were less than 150 white chassis mid 90’s XTC’s ever made.
This particular 101B is one of less than 50 made that offered the cabinet switching option to run 2 cabinets at different ohms at the same time.
It contains a complete original set of Bogner branded EL34’s and 12AX7’s and is completely stock.
Having owned many XTC’s, this amp sounds absolutely fantastic and has the early 101B white chassis mojo that players seek out.
In great condition overall and comes with the 7 switch foot controller. It’s in perfect working order and will need new tubes.
