Hey,

Im toyed over what to get for XMAS this year... I have literally just upgraded most stuff I have so I dont need anything really... but I was thinking about my amp..

I have the Peavey Valveking 112 at the moment and its great..

I noticed the Bugera 6262 head and Bugera 412H Cab for a decent price and looked at some reviews on YouTube etc and it sounds great...

Would you say that its a decent step up, or am I buying something I will not notice much difference in..

Im not amazingly clued up on guitar gear but I supose going from a valvestate to a fullvalve is a good thing yeh?

Please give me some guidance...

Thanks,

Rowan

good old guitar store .. any way your amp is more reliable than a bugera and you are not going from hybrid to tube it is tube to tube

bugera's are very unreliable, at the end of the day they are behringer's,

save up some more, you dont need a half stack for gigging or anything, try and get the peavey 5150 comb second hand or the jcm800 cab second hand

Although your suggestion isn't bad, who told you that Bugera's are unreliable? That's bull****. If you're going by the 3 or 4 people who have had problems and posted here about them you're making a mistake. Bugera's are actually pretty damn good amps. There are LOTS of people using them without a single issue. Don't generalize.

well i went to my local guitar shop, went to get a bugera

and the shop said (who i am mates with) that they've order 5 bugera's and had to send 4 back within a week because they've gone wrong

Well if anyone on this board has or has had a Bugera amp please give me your opinions.

It looks awsome, its had good reviews and the sounds I have heard on YouTube from it are awsome....

VKs are all tube/all valve, not valvestate or hybrids.

If you're not satisfied with the VK, then try out the Bugera to see if you like it. Also maybe try the VK plugged into the cab (make sure it's 16 ohms first!)

The biggest problem most people have with the VK comes from the stock speaker, so...

I own the 6262 head. It's a great amp, and also gives you as very versatile palette of tones to work with. Good cleans on it, a good crunch sound that will give you any sort of classic rock/blues sound, and a great lead channel for anything heavy. Awesome amp, especially for the price.

Theyre must be some difference in them...

As others have said, I would much rather just upgrade your VK. Get someone to put some new tubes and speaker in it

Yeah but that's a crap idea isn't it really

^ They are both valve, but there are differences of course... IE the Bugera is better.

The Bugera is a better amp tone wise man. Go for it.

Well I just sold my Modded ValveKing and I can guarantee the Bugera is miles ahead of it in terms of tone. I was actually afraid the guy would think the Vypyr he tried was better than it.

My friend got a Bugera 6262. A connector fried, all the tubes blew and the output transformer broke also. This was three months after he got it. It sounded pretty good though.
#17
Well if everyone is saying it sounds good then I think I will go for it.

Just incase I wanna go for a step up, does anyone have any HEAD and CABs tht I should go for that are only maybe another £100 or so more?

Did the same thing. Just sold my heavily modded VK. When I took my celestions out, and undid the dummy jack trick, I almost couldn't believe how bad it sounded. Fully modded it sounded decent and had enough gain for metal. I just always found it didn't have enough definition in its tone. There was enough gain, but not enough tone. I guess you can't mod what's just not there.

Yup, thats the issue I have... She has no soul is the best way I can describe it...

And a side note, its that way with most budget tube amps...

Ive got a 6262 with the 412 and it's sick

Nouts gone wrong with it, had it 2 years or so, use it everyday, propper thrash it every other day.

Thought something actually ****ed up on it the they day though.
It didn't, I just needed to change the battery in my guitar.

Really good combo though mate. You can get some really nice sounds from it.
I've got videos on YouTube of guitar covers when I use it. They're from a while back, but the amp still sounds the same. Bugera even commented on a couple of them which is pretty cool too

Deffo recommend it
