An absolute monster
Patrick5680, 19.05.2015
If you want your clean guitar tone to always be heard, and don't want to spend a ridiculous amount, this is an amp you should be considering. You get 50 watts of tube power, which is insane. This is not a tube practice amp. For that, consider something like a Blackstar HT5R.

You get a lot of control with this amplifier - most notably a 3 band EQ and a presence control. This guarantees you a good sound that'll fit in any live or recorded mix. I found the sound to be nice and chimey, but not too bright, even at really high volumes. Maybe not as pretty as a Vox AC30 but it is a fraction of the price.
There are also standard gain controls for each side (clean and dirty channels) and universal master volume and reverb. The reverb is digital, but what reverb isn't. Kudos to Bugera because it sounds so good that I didn't feel the need for a separate pedal at all.

We have a great clean channel, but problems begin to appear with the gain channel, at least straight out the box. The overdrive you get is muddy, fizzy and hollow sounding. A real letdown after hearing the clean channel. If you're not a distortion/OD pedal devotee you're going to be disappointed. HOWEVER, after replacing Bugera's stock tubes I found the sound to be drastically improved. It was like a whole new amp. Everything just sound much better and I managed to get some lovely crunch tones. If you want to get a really saturated, tight distortion tone though you're going to need to run a boost or overdrive pedal in front of the amp.

In conclusion it's a pretty great amp, BUT nowadays it doesn't really have a place. With venues running much improved PA systems, you could save your money by getting a Bugera V22 - if it's not loud enough (unlikely) you can mic the amp. However, if you like your band bone crushingly loud and have a distortion or OD box you love, this amp may be worth your consideration.

Great value for money

HIgh quality and great sound. I bought one for my son some years ago and it has held up with great sound and durability. I will buy a second one for myself if I pick up the guitar again.
