Well not really that new.
Bit new though.

They now have
A V22 head,
A head copied from the HT5
More bass stuff,
A new 1x12 and a 2x12

All of their new amps have the infinium thing which is supposed to make power tubes' life last longer, plus other stuff you can find on their website.
But the real big news is that all of their new stuff (combos + cabs) now come with Turbosound's speakers.

Whatcha think of the new amps?
Whatcha think of the new cabs?
Whatcha think of the new speakers?
Are they any good?
Have you ever even heard of Turbosound?

Those Blackstar knockoffs are shameless, even by Bugera’s standards.


Even copies the ISF feature which i understand is patented. Could land them in hot water?

Described thusly "Revolutionary MORPH EQ to seamlessly sweep between USA and British EQ-style tone"

Revolutionary? Yeah, but not for them!

The ISF thing is overated anyway

Indeed. The moment I saw it I started laughing from the bottom of my heart. So blatant that it hurts, no shame what so ever.


The cabs. If I understood correctly they are MDF with plywood baffle? Well whatever. Its the speaker I am most interested in. Never heard of Turbosound before.

what the hell is turbosound?

also if that is a rip off of the ht5 ("if"... lol) isn't the ht5 class a/b push-pull? i mean one of the whole marketing things about the ht5 was that it had a dual triode for the power amp so it was like a bigger amp. whereas bugera has (presumably) ripped it but then advertised it as being more like a small amp. excellent.

Might be tempted by that V22 head in a couple of months.

I did consider the V22 combo a while ago when I was shopping for amps, been thinking about getting a cheap spare head in case shit happens at a gig & that could be a contender.

Turbosound, hmmn, are they making clones of Celestions now? Well if they are then they better be robust or they'll take the entire amp down along for the ride. As if there weren't enough things to worry about something being/going wrong with the amp.

Also that HT5 copy is hilarious, shameless too.

please Bugera, that's quite enough...

"Morph EQ" huh?

What the hell dude. I mean, it's one thing if you rip off a tube monitoring system that you didn't design and apply to all your amps because it is a good idea in theory, but to rip off a key feature like that is just dirty...

They aren't even trying to be sly. That's not just cheap, that's lazy.

The ISF feature is Patented, how the hell can they name it MORPH EQ but still advertise it as a sweep between US and UK tone. I hope Blackstar will sue them for all they got and end this bullshit.

I haven't been a Bugera hater (I just don't like them :P) untill now but copying Blackstar's ISF feature crossed the line, the ISF is their main trademark and design for gods sake...

It seems pointless to copy a head that's already pretty cheap. But I guess they didn't sell any similar amp so they had to copy one.

I haven't played any of them yet but based on my satisfaction with my V22 and the sounds I hear from many of the bigger heads, I fully plan on getting 1 each of all the new stuff, bass, guitar, cabs, especially since they have the infinium feature now.
#27
v5 looks cool but a complete blackstar knockoff.

v22HD looks AWSEOME, i mean cough, for a bugera. i mean, jeez im sure for the price its a great head. i honestly think the V line is the best thing bugera makes.

thier contruction as i knew it (particle board) was un fitting for a cab, speaker was garbage. but a head running through a good cab!? SWEET.

that tube monitoring tech, infinitum, if it works, SWEET!

little things. i notice they changed from plastic jacks to metal ones. tell me they are making efforts to improve quality. awesome. i approve.

price?

The patent is probably only in the name. I'm pretty sure Egnater has advertised the Rebel's tube mix knob as something that goes between UK and US tones. Other companies have done similar things. The ISF knob doesn't do anything special enough to patent. That's like a company patenting a treble knob.

Just seen this on a webstie previewing the HT-5 rip off:-

"What else can you expect from a company that’s part of the Uli Behringer network of awesomeness? Uli has been at the forefront of live audio since 1989. And with the G5 INFINIUM, it’s obvious that Bugera Amps is quickly making headway as an industry leader"

Um....

Their V line is original stuff actually.
Plus, they did design their own bad sounding speakers.

Is it?
I thought it was more of a matter of non-compliance with some US electrical standards and since they weren't able to actually make it compliant (they tried for something like a year) they decided to just drop the thing instead of selling something in the EU only.

Well that's the BV1001M, which judging from the name is copied from the Gallien-Krueger 1001RB.
But they even have a BV1001T, with the T standing for tubes - that actually has 3 preamp tubes, so maybe that plus the fact that it looks like a HI-FI amp means that's copied from the Rogue Audio Sphynx instead
