Marshall DSL40 VS Bugera 6260/6262

Im looking to buy an amplifier. Ive heard good things about all three of these. Im looking to get a good classic rock tone, from Led Zep to Ac/dc to Slash. It would be nice if I could play at bedroom level, but I would also like to play over a small garage band, although of course that wont be a problem with these amps. initially I was leaning toward the Marshall, but is it really worth the extra money? I would be looking at the combo version for all three of these.
Thanks in advance

The Bugeras are clones of the 5150/5150II amps and are more modern sounding than what you want and they don't have a good rep when it comes to quality. The Marshall is deff the better choice for you. Look for a used JCM2000 DSL401 though.

This. A DSL401 made after 2003 is far superior.

The 6260 is a Peavey 6505 clone, whilst the 6262 is a 6505+colone, as stated above. The main difference is the extra 3 band eq for the Lead channel on the 6505.
For Slash, ACDC tones, the Marshall should be better. The Bugeras are more of a Machine Head/Trivium/Atreyu sound. As stated above, the pre-2003 Marshalls are much better than the present ones.

Those Bugeras would be better choice for modern metal/djent or all out death metal but for your music Marshall all the way.

I had the 6260 combo and i was never happy with it for anything really, and some quality issues, go with the marshall for the tone you are after!! Bugera wont satisfy or give you a tone you like, its kinda the opposite of what you want.

Go for a Bugera 333/XL combo, much more versatile and way better than the DSL combos imo. Mine destroyed the other guitarists DSL40c in my ex-band.

Eh? Mine has worked flawlessly for 4-5 years. I don't think OP is going to be touring the world with it.

Not really, most of the bad rap they get is from the molex connector that was getting burnt but that's an easy fix anyway and was corrected right after they come out.

That was just the funniest thing they did. They're Behringer FFS. Come to terms with it, man. You bought a piece of junk and got lucky.
