Ok I have a massive problem(and wall of text, sorry). Ok I recently bought a Blackstar HT-5 halfstack from music123 and was a bit letdown that it didn't have enough gain for my needs but I did use a pedal to push it a bit. Overall I was rather disappointed but I was impressed by the cleans. So today at Guitar Center, I grabbed a hardtail Hellraiser from the wall and saw a bunch of annoying douches in each of the aisles of brand name amps all BLASTING them hella loud struggling to play power chords. I see an ignored wall of Raven amps with a Bugera 6262-112 at the bottom. I see people recommending Bugera's on UG all the time si I figure I'll have a go on it. I sit down, play it, and **** a brick. This thing blew me away. I tried it out playing LOG, BLS, Metallica, GN'R, Bodom, Soft slow stuff, it could do it all. I was completely and utterly impressed. Now heres my dilemma. I feel that if I had played the Blackstar before i bought it, I wouldn't have ended up buying it. The Bugera was $600 and 120 watts. Do I return the Blackstar, get the refund($400), save a bit and buy the Bugera? Yes I'm within the 45-day return policy to return the Blackstar, also. I'm only going to be using the amp for practice ATM but am gonna try to get a part in a band that I know a guy from. What do I do?

Help is GREATLY appreciated.

tl;dr: Return a Blackstar HT-5 that I wasn't too impressed by to buy a Bugera 6262-112 or not?

Yeah, go for it.

If you truly like the Bugera more, save up and buy it. For the long run, it's always better to be completely satisfied with a piece of equipment you have, even if it means a lot of tedious work (which in this case would be returning, refunding, etc....)

But yes, definitely go for it if you really like the Bugera. You also might wanna check out some other (new and/or used) amps too just to make sure.

He answered the question, you said do it or not and he said yes, as in do it. I agree, sounds like you've made up your mind, although I question getting a 120watt for just practice, but if you're confident you'll need more out of it in the near future that seems like a good idea.

Like you said, you like one amp, you don't like another. If you were in a store and played them side by side there's no question which one you would go for. Why put a question mark where there's no question

I'd do it if you like the Bugera, especially if you want to be in a band.

Don't mean to piss on your popcorn, but you might want to check out testimony on Bugera reliability; seen a lot of complaints on Bugera, none about Blackstar. That $600 could wind up an expensive paperweight...

You already seem sold on the Bugera my friend. Why'd you get the Blackstar in the first place? Impulse buy I'm guessing? because there's quite some difference between an HT-5 and a 120 watt gain monster.
#11
Its been said time and time again, but if you like it I'd say go for it. Especially if you think the tone is as good, if not better than the HT-5. Also it would be more than loud enough for a band.

Yeah I do too. Normally this is where I would facepalm noobs but I could get a great low volume sound out of it. And getting in a band isn't a sure thing. I'm kinda in between ATM.

A 120w amp will be fine for practice, you just gotta be careful with the master.

Ok and my next questions are... Can guitar center order one of these in stock for me if they sell it? Does Bugera have any of the same model in a lower wattage and cheaper price? How are Bugera's reliability?

There are 2 guitar centers I visit once in a while and they are both about 100 miles away in opposite directions. And also I can't find any Bugera's for sale online.

They can order anything they have on their website or in their warehouse. Call them about that one. Get the bugera.

How much is the Bugera? The going rate seems to be about $600- $650, and for that price you could probably snap up a 6505/5150 (which the Bugera is basically a cheap copy of).

Here's one for $550:

Also keep an eye on this auction:

These are going to be considerably better built and more durable than the Bugera copies.

FWIW the 6262 doesn't have a master volume.
