Buying Tube Amp

Hello!

Im in market for new Tube amp, and Im wondering what are you guys recommending. I play mostly genre of Parkway Drive etc. So Im looking for good distortion in an amp. My price range is up to 400eur. I prefer to buy it on Thomann if anyone can look up there.

I was looking at this one, but reviews on UG made me little confused about buying it :P:

Thanks for help guys and girls :P

You can get a used 6505/5150 for that price. If you don't already know, the Bugera 6260/6262 are just clones of the Peavey 6505/5150. The Bugeras are notoriously unreliable and catch on fire. Which is kinda cool if you ever wanted a pet Charizard.

Not all of them burst into flames. Seen many have long and wonderfull lives and still kicking. But you cant go wrong with the real deal 5150 or 5150II. You can get all sorts of tones out of those amps from Rock to metal. Very easy amps to keep up with to.

Shoot and if you find one over there a Crate Blue Voodoo. (I doubt you will but hey there fun)

Good Luck

What an inspiring claim; "They don't actually burst into flames now."

Yeah now they slowly catch fire......whats wrong with that?

They had terrible QC in the beginning now they have improved alot. But all you hear about is the lemons. Never the other way around. I almost got one but once a figured out the 333XL was a JSX Clone and the 6262 was a 6505 clone i was turned off. I dont like peavy. Peavy and mesas are the two amp companies that could dissapear tommorow and i wouldnt miss them.

So they've improved? They couldn't have got worse really. An improvement over total shite isn't much of a recommendation. At the end of the day they are still just a cheap, crappy Behringer. Give me a used Peavey over a new Behringer any day.

Haha ^^^ that made my day. But yeah, dude seriously the only way your gonna be able to satisfy your tones you want to produce is all based on what you like, not what other suggest. I mean yeah you can ask what a good tube amp is, but you'll have to go try them out. Everybody's ear is different. Hope that will clear things up a little bit. Not trying to disrespect you either, just saying.

Save up for the 6505+ combo. If you're going for the metalcore tone, there are really 2 amps that are used by most of the bands, the 6505 and mesa dual rectifiers. The Mesa would be hugely out of your price range. So go for the one that's close.

I'm a firm believer in waiting and buying the right tool instead of going through a few cycles of the wrong gear. That way you don't take the depreciation hit, buying a new bugera and then selling it will lose you a couple hundred bucks
