Ight so I'm having a problem which amp I want to get for christmas, the new Peavey 6505+ 112 or the Bugera 6260 212. Which one would be better for my needs? I play mainly melodic metal with lots of clean sections, also a little bit of blues and rock. I would mostly be playing the amp at my house but would eventually gig with it. I don't live in the city or anything so volume isn't a huge problem, I'm just looking for the one that'll have better tone for my style

The peavey will last a lot longer. Two speakers sounds a little more 'full'

Up to you man. I would go with the Peavey.

i wouldn't get either for blues to be honest. neither is known for its clean tone. maybe the 333 from bugera... and don't bump your thread after 17 minutes

I would go for the Peavey, more reliable in my opinion sounds a little bit better and you will feel better owning a Peavey.

I have also been considering both of these amps. I have been leaning towards the Bugera because of the lower price and I had heard that it produced a wider range of good tones, and that the Peavey had terrible cleans. But I think I will now get the Peavey because of this Video that shows is can actually do cleans without an EQ (although I will probably get one anyway).
#11
I PERSONALLY find the B00g to be better tone wise, I'm
not alone. Although the Peavey IS known to be rugged.
As long as you take care of your stuff, it shouldn't be an issue.
Bugera has had a history of malfunctions, but they've tended
to the issues, and it's really not hard to fix the problems before
they occur (searchbar). I would recommend the 6262. Just
my opinion though.
#12
A lot of people prefer the Bugera's sound actually over stock Peavey's.

It's all up to you, personally I think the extra speaker and lower price are worth picking the Bugera. Don't worry about reliability, 09's revisions are MUCH better made and you should be fine.

btw, go for the 6262 not the 6260. The 6262 is a clone of the 6505+, the 6260 is a clone of the standard 6505.

THIS. The Bugera lead channel is basically what you get when you take a 6505 and give it more bass. I've played through my own 6262 combo and a 6505 stack. The Bugera wins. Not by that much, but it wins. As for clean... no contest. Bugera all the way.

This is your best option.

What you need is a Peavey 6505+, but you will be sacraficing your cleans... The Bugera 6260 is awesome but its the little brother to the 6262 which is what you need more.

The Bugera 6262 and 6505+ are equals, however.
#18
6262 would be a better choice then a 6202, peavey is good but 112 doesn't sound as good as 212.

look at the 333 and 333xl as well.

I went out to buy a 6262 and ended up with a 333 cause it was more of a fuller heavier gain and three channels.

I love my bugera.

I got the 6505 112 and really like it. The lead channel is really great but the cleans are meh, depends on your pups. Its ok with my neck EMG S rolled back, and the tele sounds ok clean but forget it with the 81. I made mine into a head. Now I scored a Fender Super-sonic combo too, it has a high gain channel but the 6505 kicks its ass for gain and tightness, and the Fender is $1000 more than the 6505. The Fender obviously kicks the 6505s cleans though, by about 800%.

I second the recommendation for the 333(XL).
Sounds WAY heavier, and the XL has the built in
noise gate.

Really I don't know your point of view, as I'm from the US, where we are all fat and arrogant. Don't you at least want to embrace the stereotypes?
Because really they exist, whether you like it or not. If anything I think we should poke some fun at it.

Canadians and their aye-ness. Mexicans and their physical labor jobs. Norwegians and their damn fish and potatoes.

Its all good fun man

The difference is I would much rather have an ENGL. And Mesa is still expensive here too.

you may see it as "good fun" but it gets very annoying when EVERYONE does it.

and no id rather not embrace the stereotypical british thing everyone seems to think we have going on.

i dont know why im even bothering replying to this

The 6505 isn't that bad for clean sounds. Just about average. It's got my vote.

They both sound a lot better with a little reverb, or chorus.

i would get the 6505+ they're alot more reliable that the bugera and the 112 would be better for home practice. When u start giging u could just buy a cab like an avatar 4x12 with v30s But the 6505+ dosn't have very god cleans just a heads up. look at a used peavey xxx they are nice and have a little better clean sound. the distortion is a little different but i like it.
p.s. peavey recently released the 3120 witch is the same as the xxx just in a new box with a new name.
