I didn't think it would get here for another 4 days.
But sure enough I Lifted a hefty 80 pound package into my living room and opened a panel to THIS!

BUGERA 333XL 3 Channel Tube Amplifier.


Oh Yeah Now thats sexy.




Im very happy it has the ohm switch because im using a Cabinet with it.
(My Cabinets at my Drummers house at the moment)


The Footswitch feels really nice and is made of a die cast metal enclosure.

Enough pictures of it in the living room!
Brought this sunabitch into my room.
Heavy as all hell, 79 Pounds!!!

Oh Baby .

The Empty Space Makes me miss my cab.
Sorry About the Massive Picture Festival.

All in all sound wise the clean channel is asolutely pristine.
Perfect for my tastes honestly, the EQ has a wide range, but its pretty damn bright in nature.

The Crunch channel is also very nice.
I LOVE the voicing when the gain is raised and my tone knob on my bridge pickup is rolled of to 3.
I have this set to be a secondary distortion but it also achives great vintage ward overdrive tones. The gain maxed out on this channel is noisy but really has a nice growl to it.
I will be picking up an overdrive to push this channel in the future.
As i said about the clean channel this is a very bright voice.

The Lead channel is great as well.
I have a sorta Petrucci Lead Tone going on here.
Also very bright, i have to set my tone knob all the way to 1 or 2 on this channel to get the kinda tone i liked.
But onbe I did it was Sonic Bliss.

All in all a great purchase.
Although its mainly a JSX clone, its really good for those who enjoy Mesa Tones and are on a low budget.

Saving up for a year was worth it to finally get a new amplifier.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

It's not as bright thru a 412, however your general missing ingrediant would be volume...your EQ will completely change. The transformer doesn't even kick in until you get the master past 5.

I thought the 333 was based off the XXX. Oh well, close enough. I know you have been looking for a while and also what you need to look for to protect your investment.



Actually, 62xx and the 333 series ALL have the XXX gain structure. The XL has "FAT" (XL) switches like the JSX.

Congrats man, that's awesome.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

Why does it say Boutique on the box? Bugera isn't boutique at all.

Though, they do definately sound pretty good asides from the whole reliability thing.

EDIT: Nevermind, it says "Boutique-Style".

My bad.

I tried it out in store.

Great neck, nice n light, good tuning stability. Overall a good guitar. I didn't but it cause I generally only buy guitars over a grand now.
