Ok, so I have wanted a Cherry Bomb for YEARS! I remember when Steve first started posting them back on HCAF and it just seemed "unobtanium" - fast forward a bit and I did the vids for the Bottle Rocket and got one of those amps and just LOVED it. So killer. Aggressive, meaty and chock full of tones. My GAS for the Cherry Bomb never waned though.

It so happened that a cat on another forum was interested in the Bottle Rocket. I shot Steve a note and he let me know that he had the V2 listed here that he was doing a great deal on. Low and behold, my bud Mike has a Bottle Rocket inbound and this guy showed up today. This is also loaded with NOS Tesla EL34's. Can't wait to get it home and fire it up!

Lot's of vids to follow for sure.

I have to say, and I noticed this with the Bottle Rocket as soon as I received it... the amps are RIDICULOUSLY built. This has got to be the heaviest damn amp I have ever picked up! LOL! Like... I would not want to have to put it on top of 2 4x12's heavy. EVERYTHING feels solid.

For clarification, the V2 has Increased gain and treble response in the ROD channel which makes it more like the Bottle Rocket while still having the Plex Channel.

Clip Added:


Quick vid with a few different cabs in the Two Notes Torpedo Studio. No real post production. A little verb from the Two Notes. Also did not adjust the EQ per cab change, just left as it was.

• Fried 25 (Friedman Greenback cab)
• Revv Closed 412 (ET65's)
• Hop Pole "Big Beast" (Zilla 412 w/V30's)

Balaguer Archetype. Still need to learn this amp. Similar to the BR but for sure different. REALLY dig it though and glad to have nabbed this!

Second post of the day about Henning amps. I'm not very familiar with them. How would you compare it with the Friedman BE-100?

Wow, so you sold your Bottle rocket? That thing was awesome. Can't wait to hear this.

Both are killer modded Marshall types for sure. To be fair, I will have to re-visit this. I am still at work and haven't had a chance to play this guy yet.

My Henneing Bottle Rocket was much brighter inherently than the BE, but not in a bad way. I will definitely do a vid showing both the BE and Cherry Bomb. I LOVE my BE-100. The Bottle Rocket, from what I have heard is very similar tonally to the CCV. This V2 Cherry Bomb is voiced more like the Bottle Rocket which was Steve's "heavier" amp.

Yup. MetalheadMike will have it on Thursday. He also bought my Quick Rod last year! LOL! When Steve told me that the V2 was effectively a 2 channel BR, the deal was done.

Shouldn't the title say Cherry Bomb V2?
I started the other thread today...the Bottle Rocket is really the only amp I've wanted for a while and haven't had a chance to try. Wish I had known yours was available. But, Saul Goodman...hope everyone enjoys their Hennings!

Holy hell I'm an idiot! LOL! Fixed and thanks!

This whole thing was happenstance really. The BR wasn't even listed. Mike reached out with some questions on buying a BR, one thing led to another and here we are. I had said before the only way I'd sell my BR was to "upgrade" to the Cherry Bomb.

Yep...just kinda happened. That's what I keep telling my wife anyway!

I was actually looking at grabbing a Peters and came across a video that fellow RT'er mctallica1 did comparing a Peters BH to a Cherry Bomb, and that got me curious about the Henning stuff. So I hit Jeremy up on his thoughts regarding the Henning, knowing he had one, and next thing I know I have a Bottle Rocket showing up this week :confused:

His Splawn wound up with me too, and while I LOVED that amp to pieces, the Wizard showed up shortly after and well...lets just say while the QR was amazing, the Wizard was AMAZING'er...LOL.

Congratulations to Jer and Mike! Steve makes killer amps. I have been using my Bottle Rocket in my new cover band. I get compliments on my tone from the bandmates at rehearsal and audience members at the gigs. I have three gigs coming up where the BR will be front and center in my stage rig. I love it so much!!

yeah.. you look like you're not feeling well! LOL!

Clip in the OP

I'll say, the BR gets a little more modern in the gain. This feels more like my BE. Still different though. I am really liking it.
