Created By An Amazing Team
Toneforge Jeff Loomis was created by famed guitarist Jeff Loomis, legendary producer Jens Bogren, and our very own Joey Sturgis. With their expertise and guidance, we set off down a path toward the best shredder amp we could envision, ultimately arriving at this all-in-one solution for anyone looking to bring those massive, cut-throat sounds to their home studio or live rig.
About Jeff Loomis
Jeff Loomis has had an incredible 30-year career as the guitarist for the progressive metal bands Nevermore, Conquering Dystopia. More recently, Jeff has also recorded and performed with Swedish melodic death metal band, Arch Enemy. Known for fast riffs, wailing leads, and complex compositions, Jeff’s playing is some of the greatest of all time.
About Jens Bogren
If there’s one producer that comes to mind when you think of Swedish metal, it’s gotta be Jens Bogren. Jens has sculpted the sound of the genre for nearly two decades, working with groups like At The Gates, Opeth, Amon Amarth, and many more. With Toneforge Jeff Loomis, we had the opportunity to collaborate with Jens and really dial in this rig for the high demands of Swedish metal guitar production.
Paired with the incredible cab models designed by Jens Bogren specifically for Toneforge Jeff Loomis, there’s never been a more comprehensive virtual rig for those looking to bring A-list metal tone to the studio or stage.
Toneforge Jeff Loomis features a set of unique Impulse Responses created specifically for these amps by Jens himself! Jens also makes other great Impulse Responses available here: https://bogrendigital.com/
