Im stuck between a Bugera 6262 and a Peavey 6505+.
I heard the 6262 has a great tone, maybe even as good as the 6505+, I can buy either ov them but is the 6505+ really worth the extra 600 bucks??
I play styles from Opeth, to Behemoth and Gojira. Really heavy stuff, but also gotta work with some cleans too.
Thanks

go for the 6505. it has a much warmer tone than the bugera, also alot of people complain about how the bugera's break down fairly easily.

If you need cleans then between the two go for the Bugera. Neither amp has a true clean channel but rather a rhythm channel that can be cleaned up more or less.

If cleans aren't that big of a deal the I would go for the Peavey.

Cleans aren't a HUGE deal but it'd be nice if the cleans were decent.
Sometimes I have clean passages in my songs, or a clean intro etc.
Would an EQ pedal make the cleans more pristine on the 6505+ if I get one sometime in the future? Thanks.

I'v compared the two in a A/B situation and liked the bugera better. I HAD the 6505 2x12 and my friend has the 6262 and the 6262 does acctaully have nice cleans, that being said a good bugera could last you maybe a good 5 years or so and the peavey probably a lifetime.

Have you ever played either amp? Just curious...

I much prefer the 6262's over the 6505's personally. Not a big 6505 fan. A lot of people like them though. If cleans aren't important, and you don't mind spending twice as much money then go for the 6505.

And there is a 6505+ for $600 new, but it's only a 112. Look at some used Peavey XXX's as well. IMO, XXX > 5150/6505.

For the 6505+, As long as you don't plan on using the crunch mode with the pre knob dialed past 6, you can EQ the rythym channel for clean tones and sound just fine.

Can you give a review ov how well the lead channel is for heavy as balls metal, like Gojira, Meshuggah, Hate Eternal, Chimaira etc etc..

Gojira and Chimaira use 6505s...
With that said, you should find a 5150/6505 around your area for the same price as a Bugera. Why settle for the copy when the original costs just as much in used condition?

To add onto that, "used" is a relative term. My 6505+ was 4 years old when I bought it, and had been thru 2 owners. The only thing wrong with it, even cosmetically, was the top vent was starting to crack a little bit. Suffice it to say, a good majority of used amps are in excellent condition, with the exception of power tubes.

I think the 6505+ would do good for Meshuggah tones given the right cab and guitar. The 6505+ is good in the respect that it's not too refined or compressed (such as the JSX) and has a great raw tone like you hear on many Meshuggah tracks.

No reason to spend more for nothing really, get the Bugera. The QA issues have been taken care of more or less so you won't need to worry about reliability. You can use the money you save by getting the Bugera on getting some nice tubes or mods.

I agree, my 6262 rawks. Why waste 600 on a dam peavey name. Used tube amps are Hit or miss and believe me you can miss your way into the amp repair shop.

I think if you go a/b the peaveys with the compareable bugeras as I have you will have better idea if you wanna drop 600 more on something completely compareable.

For the price of one peavey I got 2 bugeras. Oh how sweet it is.

This. I got a chance to try out the 6505, and eventually just bought a XXX based on what I REMEMBERED hearing a few years ago, and was delightfully surprised.

+1 on the XXX>6505 imo.

As much as I ould say peavey, I don't think its worth it to pay 600 bucks for made in america. If you want cleans get the bugera xxxl.

Wow there are some tightwads here. Paying extra for the Peavey name? Peavey has some of the LEAST name-oriented pricing in the business. Come on now.

I don't ever see much love for the 3120 so I think I'll toss that one out there because I really liked the one I tried at the store. If I'd have had the cash I would have walked out with it no question.
