Ampeg SVT Pro series clone on a budget
DarthPhader, 08.01.2019
I have a few Bugera products, and they all work pretty well. This bass head was no exception. Very good tone shaping, the preamp sounds very nice, good EQ and decent compression. However, the build quality of the graphic EQ is a bit dubious, as sometimes the LEDs inside the sliders turn on and off at random. Interior build is very nice too, with a nice chunky toroidal transformer accounting for most of this unit's weight (apart from the overbuilt chassis). Overall, good quality. The only problem is that this head is best coupled to a PAIR of 8ohm cabinets. Too much power at the output at 4ohm and bridged 2ohm. Blew out my Ampeg B410HLF cabinet with this on low volume. There's so much power on tap there's ridiculous headroom.

The Bugera BTX 36000 Nuke is my first "real" Bassamp and one thing is to say in advance: that's exactly what it should be; Therefore, the overall rating with 5 stars.

First impression: so many buttons, what should I do with it? Answer: Set the sound quickly and clearly (see below). The pots are all easily accessible, the switches rather less. No shortcoming, because I do not need it while playing. The included footswitch (thanks!) Is pleasantly smooth.

All you need. Sound regulation, effect and loop-in paths, stereo operation, limiter; Whatever I want to do with my amp in the next few years, the Bugera is keeping up. The built-in compressor can (of course) not keep up with my EBS Multicomp and thus omitted from the rating. The specified power (3600 watts), I can not check and be so times gone.

Main criterion and only weak point. Those who want so much watts are willing to accept sober transistors (or save on a hybrid with similar performance). The sound is amplified clean, the attacks are clearly visible, the Zerre discreet. My solution: a tube preamp in the effect, works fine. With the two equalizers sound can be varied well, only ultra high (barely audible) and ultra low (swampy sound) do not quite fulfill their purpose. The 9-band EQ, which can be activated by footswitch, makes a good deal of steam, so much so that it is always on. I still have no second box, so can not say anything about the stereo operation.

Enresponds to the pictures on this page, so I knew what to expect. The surface of brushed metal looks chic, the weight is considerable, but remains compact at 3 HE. The pots are sometimes a bit heavier than I like, but that's not enough for the point deduction. There are no defects in the processing.

Optimal ratio of price and performance, that is now "Bugera" on it, I do not care, on the inner values is important - and keep what they promise!
