Im starting work soon and i started looking at some half stacks as my peavey vypyr is just not getting the sounds i want. Anyway i was so looking forward to getting a bugera but there are a number of things that are worrying me, firstly i dont turn my amp above 2 atm so what is the point of me buying a 120 watt all tube amp. Secondly ive heard bad things concerning bugera yet their sound is amazing. But whats the point of me playing guitar if im not satisfier with the sound? I thought about buying a really good distortion pedal for my vypyr then i saw and heard that distortion pedals suck on a modelling amp which my amp is. So i either buy a £400-500 amp only to never turn it above 2 or stick with my amp and continue to be disatisfied with the sound

Help plz :S

If you can't put your volume above 2, a half-stack isn't really the best option.


What kind of sound are you looking for?

If you get the Bugera, get an attenuator.

Agreed. The Bugera is insanely loud. Most of the reliability issues have been resolved I believe on the newer ones FYI. I would suggest trying a Vypyr tube 60 or a used Valveking 112 that has the speaker replaced. Or a used Line 6 Flextone maybe.

^He stated that already.

Maybe wait for the new 6505+ 112 combo. $580US I think coming out in October. Made in China, so no one is sure yet what the reliability factor will be. The Valvekings are made in China and they are fairly reliable if that helps. They Vypyrs are made in China too I believe.

Part of the issue I think you may be having with your Vypyr is that crappy little 8" speaker. They Vypyr 60 sound loads better imo.

A brand new 6505+ half stack is more like $1,500 US. Maybe $800 used.


Peaveys website says the combo is 499

I was just trying to clarify.

I'm interested in the 6505+ 112 combo myself but they are not our yet and we are not sure of the build quality.

I have a 6262 and its the 09 model.almost all the problem are solved most are just user error now.It also has a switch in the back to cut down the wattage by half.Its sick I love that thing It just has gain for days no better yet gain for years to come because I do not plan to sell this thing unless Im selling it to get the head(I have the combo)and make a half stack.
