now, i kno there pretty much the same amp and the bugera is cheaper,

but wat i want to kno is, peoples experiences with either amp

coz ive heard good and bad things bout both amp heads and im now confused to which i will get (wen i can, soon hopefully)

im kinda leaning towards the bugera, i was originally gonna get the 6505+, but now ive found the bugera

i play lots of metal, things like LoG,CoB,Evergrey,Disturbed,BFMV,Fear Factory, etc etc

so yeah: Bugera 6262 or Peavey 6505+??

I personally would pick the 6505+

Though in my opinion the Bugera has a bit nicer clean setting if you ever want to play other less distorted stuff.
#3
I have the 6505+ and love it. never given me any problems and the tone is godly to me. never heard the Bugera though
#4
my 6262 is ace date code ''0802'' there isn't a complain i can give it ... the quality build seems ace.... sounds amazing its like basically half the price of the 6505+

the two do sound slightly different in my opinion the Bugera lead channel has more low mids also said above the cleans are really clean .... shame i don't use clean tho...

sweet amp for the price, the only thing i find is that with mine the FX loop and Reverb come on when i turn the amp on .. but that's not a huge deal

theres sum vids, but yeah ive heard that the bugera can b unreliable and can break easy

and ive also heard that the 6505+ lacks in bottom end crunch (which means it would b pretty much useless to me)

i duno im still confused

there is a nice youtube video out there of some guy explaining why he chose a Burgera over a 6505+. See if you can maybe find it.

nah thats why i added the Datecode

mine hasnt gave me problems, theres alot of bugera haters out there because of the early runs of the amps (they used clips insted of wiring straight to the board) ... before i got my 6262 i contacted Bugera and asked if the problems have been solved and they replied basically yes they have and they dont use that method of the clips anymore they also said they had tube issues before, but this has also been resolved.

Definitely go for the Bugera. There are no reliability issues anymore and for roughly half the price, it's a no brainer.

However, if you absolutely must have the brand, used 6505+'s can be had for around $700.

As for tonal differences, look no further XD: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWLn239IAvM

I picked up my 6260 head for $300 and I can't complain:P
If you have the cash and really want the 6505.. then get a 6505.

If it's not really necessary.. then the Bugera has some pretty impressive tone for a much lower price

used 6505+ or the new 112 gets my vote.

if you go the Bugera route, at lease read thru BeerChurch's blog and familiarize yourself with the check list.



How'd I know you'd be in here to say that EXACT thing
TS, if you are going to buy the Bugera, MAKE SURE you read BeerChurhc's blog, AND know that things could happen and that your hands with some knowledge are the quickest and cheapest fix.

I was bored

Bugera's have good tone. Just don't get caught off guard with something that can be avoided.

6262 has a boost in the highs that i'm not a big fan of, and everyone seems to agree that the early production run problems are more or less solved.

if you can find a good deal on the 6505+ i'd say take that in a heartbeat, but as you can see, plenty of people are satisfied with their bugs

have you looked into the Diamond Nitrox? a tad more on the brritish voiced side, more gain on tap than a 5150, and better cleans than juuust about any high gain amp i've ever heard. also suprisingly affordable.
