ok so heres the deal, my bands been in contact with bugera about an endorsement and basically im gonna pick up one of there heads to use as back up on tour behind my mesa triple rectifier.

now because i haven't tried either the Bugera 6260 nor the 6262
i was wondering which is better, whats the difference ect.

ive been told that there close to the 5150 6505 heads. my other guitarist has a 5150ii so i know the 5150 sound. but which bugera head should i get and why?

6260 OR 6262
i would like the one closest to the 5150ii or similar.

ive also been told the clean channels on the bugera heads are better? any truth on that in comparison to the 5150ii.


ps. the reason my i want to compare them with the 5150ii is because there is one at my house i can tinker with. so i wanna base things around that if that makes sense?


edit: -- upon closer look i see the 6262 is more suited for metal, but regardless id like to hear some more about the issue before i pick a head to get from Bugera.
but keep in mind that i am currently running a triple rectifier by mesa, and my other guitarist has the 5150ii from peavey, so if like to try and keep the same feel to the amp combination we have.

The 6262 is modelled after the 5150ii which is the 6505+.

The 6260 is the 5150 which is 6505.

This.

And from what I know, the only difference between the 6505 and the 6505+ (and same with the 5150 and the 5150 II) is that the + and II versions have separate EQs for the Lead and Clean channels.

There's more differences than that. The + and II have an extra preamp tube, and do not sound as 'raw' or 'aggressive' as the plain old 5150/6505. They're a bit smoother and have slightly less gain as well (although still more than one will ever need!)

Think of it this way

6260=5150 clone
6262=5150 II clone

check out youtube for the sound differences. they are pretty close, and still good amps. I've heard problems with reliability from some, but they seem like good amps to me.
