We're the first to admit that when we launched the line, we had reliability issues with a couple of our models. We have since taken HUGE steps in bringing our manufacturing and quality assurance standards to the next level.

One of the many benefits of our MIDAS brand acquisition, was gaining the invaluable resource of their legendary, state of the art manufacturing and testing methods (something MIDAS is famous for). We have worked tirelessly and spend a great deal of capital on bringing the BUGERA manufacturing facility up to the same strict standards and we've seen a measurable decrease in our failure rate as a result.

If you haven't played a BUGERA amp in some time, we implore you to seek out a local BUGERA retailer and put one of our amps through its paces. You won't be disappointed.

We understand that you have a huge number of amp options out there and we really appreciate those of you that have chosen BUGERA as your go-to brand.

I'm here to answer any questions you might have, so please feel free to fire away.

Talk to you soon,

Dustin Plumb
Product Manager
Bugera



What amperage are the 7915 and 7815 regulators in positions ic1 and ic2 on a 6262. I would like to change these. I have 1a ones just wanna be sure.


Guys my amp back up and running. it only cost me 5 bucks... I added a heatsink to the regulators. Still don't trust it, wanna solder in some new ones. It's gonna be a PITA

Amp still acting up, changed those regulators still doing it. Could the preamp tubes have anything to do with channel switching ?

So far, so true.

Why bother putting yourself (and your company) out there like that if you're not gonna bother following up? He should have never posted in my opinion... Just makes me think they're spending more money on BS PR stuff than they are on actual solutions.

I seriously doubt it. I know preamp tubes are sometimes used to drive reverb or FX loops but not as channel switchers. Can you take it to a tech?

I've been offered a modified 333xl for my 6505+, I want something that can do Iron Maiden, Saxon, and that sort of thing. The heaviest would be Stone Sour or Slipknot.

Here is the description of the mods I got: I had jeff from dsr amplification in sarnia put in mesa 6l6 powertubes about 3 months ago, and he alos replaced a few internal parts to make it more "road-worthy". I noticed you said the 6505+ doesn't fit your tastes. The bugera I am offering has a pretty good clean channel, a crunch that sounds pretty marshall esque and can go from light breakup to metal tones. The lead channel can be really heavy/ in the same realm as the 6505. I have the foot pedal for channel switching. I'm offering mostly because i have always liked the 6505+, and play metal 95% of the time. if you are interested just let me know. If you want a second opinion on it i would recommend asking jeff from dsr about it (if you know him,or you can find him on facebook), he was pretty impressed with it. thanks!


Would the amp with those mods suit what I want?

I own a bugera 333 and you deff do not want to trad your Peavey for one. I understand you don't really dig your amps tone, but that is an idiotic trade. While bugeras sound good, your peavey is built like a tank and made with much higher quality components.

Just hang in there and you'll either sell it or find someone who will swap you.

EDIT: It is like trading a BMW M3 for a Frod Focus. Bothe are cars and drive, but the BMW is infinately better.

HI everybody! I'm back, I said I'm BAAACK!

How's things here in Bugera land? Still bitching back n forth or the trolls be banishethed?

I've been busy doing loads of musical and retail stuff.

Among which, are several recent BUGERA demos.

Pleas take a look and feel free to ask questions about anything presented!

All done on Modded V55HD!

Enjoy...

You forgot the part where he offered his help, then disappeared and now isn't responding in here or to PMs.

Oh yeah, sorry about that, what tubetime said.

But seriously Dan, what more do you except from a low-cost company? They can't afford to even buy tested tubes, let alone pay some guy to help at an online forum.

crazy talk dude. How else are they going to convince everyone to buy a bugera instead of a peavey or vox or marshall? Obviously the easiest way is to lie and hope that no one calls you on your BS! C'mon dude, what part of this aren't you getting? They could spend their PR dough on proper QC, but no one gives a rat's ass about that, so why would they?

Hey man I don't wanna spin this into speculation and Bugera bashing... I'm only speaking to what I can prove and that is that Bugera has a reputation for being unreliable, and that guy's little visit here only makes the company as a whole seem less reliable.

Oh I mean I loved my bugera, but the lack of integrity in the company shown by that debacle was quite frustrating

Ok so i fixed my 6262, a poster (danglin'fury) on another forum fixed a similar problem on a peavey XXX and pointed me in the right direction. It was 20 cent 1 megaohm resistor in the R54 spot.


Back in Bid-ness.....

I got the V55 Combo for 330 bucks US. I am a poor bloke. I get so much good sound. I am really happy with it. I also got a Earthquaker Speaker Cranker and with that bit of dioditure clippiture it has a really fine sound.

I haven't swapped tubes. I talked to one well known tuber who impressed to me that in his words the amp would best "Go with the Tung-Sol 7581's and for the 3 x 12AX7's do a Tung-Sol in V1, Ruby 12AX7AC7 HG in V2 and a Sovtek LPS in V3."

I was ready to buy NOS and -or Genalex NI, but he said this above combo was ideal. I researched them more and see where he's going with them.

That will be my next jag with this amp.

I have a used EHX LPB2UBE coming soon for some tube satchmo and distro. I am looking forwards to that.

It has been loads of fun.

Hey guys, is the V22 loud enough to play clean with a band with a moderate-light drummer?

i didn't crank it all the way at the store, but it seemed like a fairly loud amp. if you put the amp on a table about waist high i bet it would keep up just fine. also place it about 4 feet from a wall for some good rear projection, should also help fill up a room.
