Sorry for all the threads recently but this is the final one (maybe).

So, I am wondering weither to buy a ENGL Screamer 50 combo or a Bugera 333XL 212. I saw a ENGL for £500 somewhere and the Bugera is about that price so there is no price help needed just tone! I need to get rid of this line 6 spider III 15w and fast!

Help please! Any help is appreciated!

apparently they've fixed the reliability issues but i can't decide which one sounds best but I haven't got a store near me with the screamer or the bugera. Anybody know anywhere near south west wales where there is a guitar store with one or the other in?
#6
hmm... will have to travel all the way to manchester and back so all in all it will cost about £570. still worth it?

Wow, really?

Thanks for the HELPFUL comment polishedbullet! Thats what I thought but I thought I would just check
#14
i love bugera for their performance to price....but jesus man engl is top notch stuff. engl.
#15
bear in mind the screamer isn't the heaviest engl- some people think it can do br00tz, some don't. It's not a given in other words.

I think most people would say engls are a lot higher quality than bugera, though (i haven't tried bugera).
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Et tu, br00tz?

Ye well the music I listen to is not very heavy like death metal or anything. I think the amp should be fine. He said he would sell it to me for £460 but I will hac=ve to pay for the courier so about £470 altogether

^ That should end the thread right there - a Bugera fanboy picked something other than Bugera.

Get the ENGL.

GET THAT!

Anybody who says that amp can't do br00tz is a nutbar. I have a sweetspot in my heart for the screamer at the local shop. I test most guitars through it at least once.
#20

#21

If they do, I will find them and beat them senseless.

Don't get me wrong, lots of Bugera amps have great tone, but for quality I'd look elsewhere.

You shouldn't take it literally, I think Bugera are great amps but I'd obviously take the engl over it. Stop being a troll and grow up.

Grrr can't wait to get rid of this line 6! I never realised how bad it was until I listened to some samples of these amps and I was like 'Oh so THAT's what my amp is supposed to sound like' Lol!

hey you get a 1/8 in line out and a spyder 3 15 watt is the worlds best i pod dock for 99 bucks. i know cause i own one. it has saved many a house party from a horrid sound system.

and...the spyder 3 is coming with my to college in 3 days. sadly, there is no room for a hot rod deluxe, 25 watt fender champ, and my 22 watt bugera all in one college household.

...plus, spyder has a headphone jack = i can play all night. screw my roommates!
#30
Lol!! It must be annoying to live in college! Can't make any noise! I suppose there are some good points to the spyder

Sorry, but most often, to get quality products, you need to pay a premium. Better parts cost more money.
#32
Which is better for my sound the Screamer or the Thunder? I play lead guitar and I have already said what bands I like (Heavy Metal)
#33
I have an engl e530 and it's extremely dry and a bit on the thin side. It's voice is good but I like a thick saturated juice dripping like distortion, damn thing is just bone dry. I'll probably keep it as it serves a purpose for specific tasks but I have a bugera 333 in shipment.
#34
Not sure if serious.

But dood, cereal, ENGL. You don't even need to try them out to figure that one out. Which is normally never the right wayto go about this sorta thing, but dood, it's ENGL versus Bugera.
