a) Peavey Valve King 100
b) Bugera 6262 or 6260
c) Bugera 333XL or 333

Value probably the Bugera but the Peavey will probably be more reliable. What are you wanting to play? Metal?

i d say the bugera 6262 if its metal...of course you need to go try it all out for yourself
#4
Yeah it will be used for playing rock/hardcore/metal. Ive watched vids on youtube of all these heads and I love the way they all sound. The closest music store that would possibly have these to try out is 2 hours away though.

Yeah at this time I dont have a bigger budget. Dont even have the money just yet for any of these Bugera or Peavey heads. I gotta sell my piece of crap Marshall first.

If you have the money, definatly go for the peavey. The Bugera's tone is not bad, but nowhere near the tone of the peavey. Yeah it's a clone, but Bugera did not succeed in copying the tone.
Here is a video of a dude comparing the two amps, and you can perfectly hear the difference in tone.

If you ask me: the peavey got the balls, the bugera lacks it.

The bugera 6260 vs 333xl:

If you ask me: the lead tone of the 333xl sucks big time.

I'd go for the 6262...one of my friends has one and it plays amazing. Just take it in and have a tech look it over before you play it to tie up any lose ends. The one he had didn't have any problems...but it would be worth the money just to have it looked at.

id go for the 6262 out of those, but if you can find a used 5150 or 5150 II for a good price pick it up

dude i hate to have to bag a load of peoples amps, but in my opinion a bugera is a waste of money. most of them die at least once, the components are cheap, peavey copies, the tone in general is weak and really a poor mans peavey. peavey make nice reliable amps.

what kind of sound are you trying to achieve. i really reccomend the classic 50 212. it gets really dirty, has a nice clean, and can be bought very cheaply. even a head version with a 412 would probably be more reliable than a bugera, have better clean than a 5150 or 6505, the gain is useable, it is not as noisy, and will sound better than a valveking.

just my opinion.

Id go for a either a triple X or a 6505/5150 to avoid problems with bugeras reliability issues.
Try finding used to get the most out of your budget.
