Well I am a proud owner of the Bugera 333xl as of a week now and I don't have any regrets. I like the tone that I get, its a huge step up from the pod xt live... :P The only thing im concerned about is the hiss on the lead and crunch channel but I have ordered my ISP decimator which should be here soon =) Still looking for people to bias the amp in calgary (can't find anyone yet!) Anyways, yeah, im pretty happy. I also got the MH1000 deluxe (original floyd rose, 81/85 set) and the combination sounds kickass =) Time to post in the Bugera militia =)

Heya,
Same set up as you!
Bugera 333xl (swapped tubes for 6l6s) and isp decimator g string

I gotta say though, Amp is so badass when you have EMGS Lead channel and 6l6s!! You'll love it!

But im not a HUGE fan of the Decimator, sure it does its job but the Boss Ns-2 has a decay knob which i find more effective. It's still awesome though

Put 6l6s in!!!

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

haha good to see another engineer who owns a bugera 333XL. im at virginia tech tho so its a good distance away. do you think that swapping out the 6L6's made a huge difference. would you recommend it? also I have the ISP noise decimator and it takes all the unwanted crap out of the amp without sacrificing any tone. I do have that hiss tho, just turn up the noise gate all the way up on the amp and it takes care of it for me.
Stay thirsty my friends...

You'll get more low end and headroom. 6L6GCs will get you into a more "mesa" territory.

I personally like the EL34 bark, but I play a lot of wide saturated sus chords. I like how the EL34 compresses...You get instant crunch attach but sustained chords ring loud and clear.

It's all a matter of the sound you are looking for.

Edit: I'm a 3rd generation civil engineer.

^I can get very convincing, dropped tuning metal tones with EL34s thru a 4x12 cab. However, a majority of the concensus would say the 6L6GCs will give you the smooth low end and headroom you are looking for that type sound.

For Lamb of God - you'll notice more of improvement with a closed back cab, (especially a 4x12) than you would with a tube change.

But a tube change couldn't hurt. That's the great thing about tube amps, there's all these different nifty little valves you can pop in and suddenly a whole you get a whole new revelation of sonic capabilites.

I've had mine almost a year (April). It sounds better everytime I plug in!

The only negatives I see, besides Bugeras "wonderful" QC, is now every begining guitar player can afford a LOUD high-gain amp.

Yeah...just what we need...more crappy renditions of Iron Man at 120watts of tube power.
