Well, I would call it noticeable I guess. Mainly because of the independent eq issue. But not a huge deal...

I still haven't seen any Bugeras in any shops that I frequent. Poo.

I'll put it this way: I can't imagine anyone needing more gain from the 6262. I've never used it with full gain.

Agreed. I have my gain on 5 and it's insane. I turned it up all the way just to see and Jesus...

All that comes to mind is this is an inexpensive metal amp. Pretty much what every newbie to toobies bitches for. It is no Mesa or Marshall but serves its place on the foodchain well.

Exactly. It's a budget amp - you get what you pay for. But still, I suggest that anyone getting one would get a good warranty to go with it. Just in case

I agree, just in case . I've got three total years on mine (warranty) and within that time I hope to replace it with something high end. I will still keep it though, it does metal so sick, I could never get myself to consider it "trash".

On a side note, the tech I use is a Behringer tech also! I never knew that, he told me he's already studied the Bugera amps and would be happy to re-valve it whenever I am ready. He also told me that they arn't "bad" per se but he did see one already that was a disaster inside but that he's seen a couple that were very well made. They really are individually hand made. Guess it depends on WHO made your amp there in China...weird info.

I have two overdrives....a Boss SD-1 and one of my own creations, the JL-808 Rx Driver. My Rx Driver takes a TS-808, adds much more available gain, while also allowing you to dial in less, flattens the mid hump just a hair, increases bass response. Then, you have the ability to select either silicon diodes or LEDs for clipping. I build them in small numbers for people who want them.

Lol @ Bloodshed. Right on! You're a little more technically skilled than me. Which one should I get? Going on the assumption I can only get one overdrive pedal.

I'm proud to say I got my first neighbor complaint with the Bugera today. It was only on 2 1/2. I had my window open though. Oops. She's a bitch anyway...

If you are on a shoestring though might i suggest the TS7 or the SD-1

I know I could read the all about tubes thread but just a quick response here would be nice...what would changing the power tubes from 6L6's to the 34's actually accomplish as far as tone on the 6262 goes?

Going to EL-34s would drop the clean headroom, meaning the amp would distort earlier. The distortion would also have more of a Marshall-y, kind of british sound to it. Really crunchy, more mid range less lows

BTW, to Brendan.Clace, or theEsupremacy...PM me sometime if you decide you want one of my OD's I promise you wont be sorry, and if you have a specific sound you want from it, I can tailor it to your specific needs. I currently have two base versions, one with just the switchable clipping stages, and then one with a bass boost toggle on top of that. The circuit is the 808 circuit, but then I picked aspects I liked from different mods out there (Keeley, Analogman, Monte Allums; etc) and created my own beast. You can also change the IC chips for experimentation.

Thanks for the info on the tubes bloodshed. I would as a matter of fact be interested in an OD pedal. actually, on the advice of a friend I was gonna go pick up a Maxon OD808 pedal as he said it would clean up the lead channel nicely. He recommended that pedal over all the others? How does yours sound in comparison to the OD808? The Maxon is kinda pricey at $135...

Well the maxon OD 808 is pretty much the same as the Ibanez TS808. And Bloodshed builds his OD's using the TS808 circuit so I'm guessing they will be fairly similar. But support fellow musos and see what his is like. I might even get one if your willing to post to aus and can have it done within the next 3 months :S. Seeing as your pedal+shipping would be around ... $120 aus and a Maxon OD808 over here is like $300 haha.

im going to try one out this weekend i think.
and will most probably purchase if i like it enough.

how do they compare to a marshall dsl 100 jcm 2000?
because that was one of the cheapest valve amps i could find, so i was looking at getting one of them. if i could ever afford it..
