Bargain of the century

C9009, 25.06.2014
After hearing the Plexi sound on all the classic albums for so many years I just had to purchase this amp, seeing it priced as the bargain of the century under £300! Its hard to believe that the "brand named" version of this same amp, with the same feature set and customizations (such as Cascade modes and FX Loop) costs well over £1000. Speaking of other amps, I have owned various Marshall heads, Laney, Peavey and other tube gear. Recently I've been working my way through the Bugera range and each time I cannot believe how good they are for so little money.

On unboxing I found the amp superbly constructed, as solid and heavy duty as any other higher priced tube head I've owned. I personally dont think this amp is any different than the original its based upon. The same bite and personality you hear on all those famous rock songs is right there.

The only downside is the master volume does not have quite enough reduction to allow amp distortion at home volume. The amp gets way too loud at around 2 on the channel volume, even with the master volume all the way down. For home use, you will need to use a distortion pedal to get dirt tones. The good news is distortion pedals seemed to become enriched with the overall "Plexi" effect. My pedals have never sounded so authentic through any other amplifier. The best recipe for home use was to use an effects unit in the loop for some EQ and reverb, and an analog distortion pedal in front of the amp. However at louder volumes none of this is required.

Once you can push the preamp knobs past 4 or 5, you are taken back to that classic era. The master volume works perfectly when the amp is unleased outside the confines of home, allowing you to achieve the classic maxed out Plexi sound at perfectly reasonable band volumes. No pedals are needed for a monster and 100% real Brown sound.

I swapped the preamp tubes with NOS but didn't notice much benefit except maybe a touch more bass. The Bugera tubes must be pretty good too.

For this price, it's great!

Alexander Å., 29.07.2014
Initially, I was quite disappointed in this thing. Having never owned a tube amp myself, I was taken aback by how unruly and wild it behaved. Volume was hard to control, and none of the knobs and buttons quite reacted the way I expected them to. The four different inputs only added to my confusion, and for a good while I wondered if maybe it was broken somehow, and considered sending it back to Thomann on several occasions.

After a few days of fiddling however, I managed to uncover the hidden sounds I had been looking for all along. Suddenly I was playing Hendrix, Beatles, Rolling Stones. I was playing warm and supple jazz, I was playing stoner, fuzz metal, you name it, and it all had a certain warm and vintage feel. I felt like I had tamed a great beast.

It's build quality isn't quite great, but it's good enough. It's visual design is what really lifts this thing though, as it looks undeniably impressive.

Overall this is a great tube amp for people on a budget, but at least for me my initial reaction negative. Once you get to know it however it grows on you and becomes something you look forward to using.
