Hello all.

Ive been looking for my new amp and after much browsing websites and this forum i have narrowed my options down to the bugera 6260-212 and the randall RG50tc.
my question is has the bugera got too much power to perform at lower volumes for jamming? and if so is there any way to get the same performace out of it at lower volumes? also maybe a stupid question but is the randalls 50watts enought to compete with a crazy monkey like drummer?

thanks geoff.

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

I really don't know why everyone is suggesting an attenuator, an attenuator is good for bringing down a really driven amp to band/gigging levels - not for making practice amps.

It's seems unlikely to me that you'll be using the 120 watts anyway as it is designed specifically for headroom, so that you don't drive your powertubes and get that 'looser' distortion often associated with it. The master volume should suffice to keep the amp quiet.

50 watts should also be plenty to get over the most heavy-handed drummers.

Umm...I hate to break the news to you but those aren't exactly the greatest amps. Maybe you should avoid the Bugera because I don;t want you to become best friends with your local amp tech. Maybe most of the problems are ironed out, not sure. If you can find a Peavey XXX then get it,.

right.. !
ok i tried to stay away from this question because of the amount of threads asking the same type of questions but i need a tube amp for metal in the same price range, i cant seem to find much on the peavey xxx where can i get it from in the UK? im not really interested in hunting out a discontinued amp.

oh and is the bugera really that unreliable?
