Was Bugera started by Behringer, or were they bought out by Behringer. Basically Im asking what is the relationship between Behringer and Bugera Amps
#2
I believe the Bugera line is owned by and was created by Behringer.

Pretty sure Bugera is it's own company...and Behringer just distributes their stuff. Either way...carry on

That's an untrue and outdated statement.

The original press release stated that they were made by Behringer. The distribution rumor was started by fan boys who want to distance the brand from Behringer.

I stand corrected

They're made in Behringer City, marketed by Behringer and distributed by Behringer. Although the circuitry, as you probably know, was designed... elsewhere...

So if Behringer was able to turn Bugera around after they made all those crummy amps that did stuff like catch fire at random then what’s keeping them from getting their pedal business together?
#14
Behringer had the bugera brand long before the amps and made bugera speakers for there behringer cheap cabs YEARS before the ampline ever came out. Breakign a personal rule here but eh

Behringer pedals are in general good budget pedals. Not sure what you mean with Bugeras catching fire either.

Yes, the public must never get a hold of schematics . They might become confused, frustrated and angered from all the lines and symbols. It could start a mass panic, for goodness's sake!

sadly yes. i hate to say it. however from using their products i have to say the bugera sect of the company puts its larger corporate bro to shame. everything i have seen from beringher is total crap. so far i am not disappointed with anything bugera. not for the prices.

you have to consider prices. not everyone is rich. not everyone owns a BMW. not everyone has a mansion. you can just say something is crap. cmpared to what other option.

fact is, in its price range bugera destroys everything made pretty much.
#19
Maybe when they first came out but Jet City surpasses Bugera in reliability by far nowadays. Even with the supposed fixes. And I for one strongly prefer the tone.

Behringer doesn't own Bugera but they are both owned buy the same parent company and thus share marketing, distribution etc. Separate companies with shared infrastructure.


Behringer is owned by nobody. Where are you getting your misinformation from? The original press release stated that Behringer was rolling out a new tube amp line.

You're right. I was getting them mixed up with something else I was reading about the other week which for the life of me I can't remember what it was. It had something to do with manufacturing. Now this is going to bother me till I figure out what it was...

Isn't Behringer is owned by Uli Behringer?

Yes, but what he meant was that both Behringer and Bugera were owned by a parent company, which is not true. Behringer is a huge audio corporation, and actually owns an enormous manufacturing facility in China (called Behringer City) where they manufacture all of their products.

I will say, Behringer's non-guitar-related products are supposed to be fairly decent. Not top of the line stuff, mind you, but decent.

This is true, and its good. I havent heard anything under twice the price of a bugera amp that puts up a good competition in terms of eirther tone or versatility. Jet city amps are great but they are very inversatile.
#28
Inversatile? I beg to differ. The JCA20 can do rock crunch to Metal by itself. the jca50 and 100 are much more expansive. Hell you can pick up jca20's for like 180 bucks too, and jca 50s for 500

This. And I'd hardly call the 6260 or 6262 versatile. Maybe the 333 but it's more of a jack of all trades except for doing a pretty good high gain sound for the price.

333xl. The clean is beautiful even moreso than the lower gain jet city which is surprising from a high gain amp. The high gain.. no comment. And I see lots of praise from people that play ultra high gain too, which is something I dont do...
#31
Well the JCA20 doesn't have dedicated cleans. Compare it to an amp that is similarly featured. The JCA50 has much nicer cleans IMO and I know many will agree.

Ehh the cleans on the jca50 and 333xl are about the same. The ones on the 333xl arent as warm as jca50. So its different cleans/strokes for different folks

True. I use my jet city for bluesy, old hard rock jams over the 333xl. I still use my 333xl live and for everything else... is much more versatile and can do more styles with a better tone.
#36
yes, but my bugera 6262 stands up and growls at my Peavey XXX .... i play it more than the XXX

You gotta remember though, the except for the JCA 50 and JCA 100 heads the other jet cities are based on different amps

Im just basing my experience on my JCA50 which i purchased on recommendations reading threads here. Its a great amp, but its actually very unversatile on its own.

But they're completely different amps. Compare it to a 5150.
