Earlier today i posted a thread on the availability(or lack thereof) of the 333xl and 6262 amp models. It seems that they may be moving on to new models and I have been made uneasy by this. So ug help me out what amp do you suggest for under 700 dollars now that I know this news. I play metal as in Lamb of God/Machine Head/Trivium ect. thank you for your help.

I suppose zz has one 333xl head but its the last one and i wont have the money untill later this month. and I too have heard that the now do solder connections instead of clips like before.
#10
I'm not sure they've taken those models off the market, it seems a lot of retailers do them by special order only. I know mine shipped from Bugera direct though I bought it through a third party. So it would show "out of stock" technically.

not as much gain as the ones I previously mentioned. IF you go 5150/5150 II, 6505/6505+, or XXX you will be satisfied for your styles. Matt Heafy played a 6505+ a few tours ago for the record.

don't get me wrong im well aware of those amps and how awesome they are i just want something under 800. You think a used 6505 will go for that?

Used 5150/6505 or XXX and you'll be all set. They're ridiculously reliable.

Yep. $800 for a used 6505 is somewhat of a rip-off..

slightly related topic, used 6505+ 212 combo on my local kijiji for 750 CDN. Good call?

yes $800 for a 6505 is totally reasonable, actually, as mentioned, it might be a slight rip off. Are you looking for a head or combo for that matter?

the person lives in one of Calgary's sketchiest/rape-iest neighborhoods haha, so i'm a bit cautious about getting ripped off, but I'll check it out.

I don't know why I didn't say this...but get a Bugera off ebay or craigslist if you want one...You can definitely find them under $500 and still have plenty of money left over to take it to an amp tech and get everything sorted out if it's an older model.

If this sounds like a hassle, revert back to my previous Peavey suggestions

yeah just be careful man. It's a good idea to call and talk to the person before hand, not just email.

after some surfing i think im going for the 6505 + because i figured in the end why go for imitator when I can get the OG. thanks alot you guys. I see alot of people tearing stufff like this apart. but maybey i spend too much time in the pit lol
#25
How far away is this? Use the extra money to get a decent cab.

http://madison.craigslist.org/msg/1486367662.html


There was also a Carvin Legacy halfstack on there for $900 and a 6505 head. And a 5150. Thank me later.
#26
good call sir. You will be satisfied for what you need. Flameshield up but I like the Bugera's tone better than the Peavey's they model

And with '09 models being reliable I honestly recommend the 333XL or 6262 over XXX or 6505+. Just my two cents. I find the Peavey's to be slightly muddy whereas the Bugeras are brighter with more bite (which I like).

Madison is not even remotely close to Calgary. Think Las Vegas to Chicago sort of distance.

Pretty sure that was directed towards the OP. If not, I do not care for XXXs, they're too bright.

no, they're about 1100 CDN according to Axe music
EDIT: the 112 combo goes for that much, this is a 212 combo.

I think his post from the Madison craigslist was directed toward TS, who is from Wisconsin.

i can sell a new (floor model) 6505+ head for $850-875. its proven to be reliable... also i feel for you up north, clist sucks up there generally. but keep checking the used sites. pm me if you want. good luck and sorry about discussing bugera stuff in your last bugera thread.

Oops, I'm an idiot. I saw calgary and got confused. La crosse is still 2-3 hours from madison though.

Having owned a 333XL for half a year I can tell you they are rock solid now. I wouldn't trust peoples opinion unless they've owned a Bugera for a decent amount of time or hand hands-on experience with them for an extended period.

Funny, it's true. Owning a 6505+ now it's clear to me now just how good a deal Bugera's are.

OP, go with whatever you feel comfortable with. You can't go wrong with the 333XL, 6262 or Peavey 6505+ etc.

And if they aren't done, do it yourself!

I forget who, but someone on here has a blog about what parts to take a look at in your Bugera and how to fix anything wrong with that part. Could anyone link to that?
