Ive noticed alot of people on this forum highly rate Bugera amps, ive been after a new amp for a while now and ive read alot of good things about the 6260 212, can anyone give me any of their personal experiences with the amp?
Next month when i get payed i will buy one or a blackstar ht20 with a 2x12 cab
i play alot of bb king style clean blues, all the way up to strapping young lad style metal

To be fair, there are also those who think they are the Devil's spawn and they will kill your puppy when you're not looking.

Either way, I've been very satisfied with my 333. Cleans aren't what the 626X is made for though and I think the 333(XL) does that better, judging from what I've heard and read.

Well, for the clean blues, the HT20 would be better, but it wont get SYL tones. The 6260 will, but it wont be as good for the cleans. It depends which is more important to you
I think the HT20 with a boost would be able to get reasonable metal tones, but it isn't really voiced for modern metal tones like SYL.

the HT40 with a tube swap and an OD can get you modern metal sounds

I don't know... I heard they kill your puppy while you're looking right at them.

they are decent enough amps for price. if you buy one used just make sure it works first. follow the advice in BeerChurchs Blog and post up in the Bugera Users Militia thread.

otherwise, i don't think I'd get one for blues. Take a look at the Jet City JCA20 and the new 50 coming out. Look at used amps too, what is your closest city and total budget?

I dunno, when I tried a 6262 the quality didn't exactly inspire confidence in me

I've been able to get surprisingly good blues tone out of my 6505+ 112.

what amp would you recommend? im looking at around £300, i can do without rediculous overdrive settings as i use my htdistx (tung sol-ed) for distortion anyway, and im not bothered about built in fx

The 333 instead of the 6260. Goes from fully clean to modern br00tz and pulls it all off with gain to spare.

if you actully listen to a 6260, it sounds exactly like a 5150.

Impossible, I'm pretty sure they have different circuitry (poweramp at least) and different transformers.

They sound similar sure, but not the same. Some say they prefer the one, some say they prefer the other.

333XL. Bloody versatile.
Done get a 626x.
The thing is, you can use a pedal to boost and improve your distortion.
But you can't improve your cleans with pedals. :/

You can kind of make cleans better. From what I hear, it's pretty common to add some chorus/delay to 5150 cleans to spruce them up a bit. You could also use an EQ or sonic maximizer or something.

Yeah, adding something to cut your signal's gain (EQ pedal, namely) before it hits the preamp=more clean headroom.

Well, sorry, but that's just not true.

That does not increase headroom (maximum input signal strength before clipping), it just lowers the input signal, just making it quieter.

333x would probably work. used amps are the way to go.

therefore lowering the signal's gain going into the tubes, pushing them less, which means breakup is less easily accomplished. Maybe it's not the technical definition, but w/e

It accomplishes the same thing. The other option is to get tubes that take longer to break up.

I did that to my TubeScreamer, it's a pretty easy mod:

It doesn't increase headroom. The same thing can be achieved with the master volume.

It's like saying the roof of a room becomes higher from the ground when you use a shorter ladder to reach it.

TS - i'd go 333xl as well if i was going bugera. or another used option if anything was available that did the a-z tones you are after. check the usual suspects, ebay, kiji, jaxed, craigslist, gc etc....

True enough, but if you're choosing between a 333XL and a 626x, when the 333XL gives you sparkling cleans and the 626x doesn't exactly, you'd prefer the one which comes with better cleans and almost as brutal a distortion, rather than buy a 626x and then an EQ pedal and/or chorus and reverb, etc. :/

Definitely with you on that one. That's one of the main reasons I went with the 333. A separate clean channel that stays clean (unless you really push it ).
