I had the classic 50 for a long time and I loved it. I got rid of it a while back and now I need another amp.The bugera is in the price range and sounds like it would be close to the samu type of amp. Could anyone compair the two as far as tone, sound or volume?

The peavey is a better amp. I did really like the Bugera BC30, but the V55 was pretty mediocre. I think the V22 is better than the V55 personally
Give us:
Budget?
location?
new or used?
do you gig or home use?
what is your current gear (if you have any)?

Well, budget is $400. I had a schecter XXX stolen and was so frustrated I sold my other gear. I now have a couple acoustics and just bought a cheap jackson (thinking that any decent money should be spent on the amp). Actually, the only reason I bought the electric was to play rocksmith. It's a pretty cool game by the way.
I need an amp that will let me play with a band. My group has been getting together on and off for 20 years or so. We play anything you could imagine, SRV, cream, Metallica, STP, greenday, neil young, old crow, well everything. I would like New for the warranty. I'm in central indiana..

I'd say both the classic 50 and the v55 would do, though you're probably better off getting the new v22, combo or head depending on what you prefer.

Or you could get an egnater rebel...

Well, price is a concern. The classic 50 is just too much right now. Isn't the egnator less wattage? I will look into the V

20w or 30w, and you'll most likely be able to reharse with a drummer even with the 20w one.

The Classic 50 is a great amp. I regret selling mine. You can find them cheap enough that I wouldn't bother with Bugera.

I do band practice's with a 20 watt Krank 1980Jr it keeps up just fine with a full (loud) band.

You might do well looking at a used Peavey Ultra combo, they run $300 or less used

I think that amp is selling back up at 699 now. That 299 deal was INSANE!

Yea, the rice jumped back up. I just went for a used bugera from MF. I'll run it through its paces as soon as I get it. Hopefully it will do. I would have loved to get something better but that is all I could spend. So, we will see. If it isn't up to snuff, ill save some more. Thanks for your help.

I would never buy a used Bugera. I owned one and way too many issues to buy used.

You could have lit the money on fire and been better off

Huh, well, I have 30 days to return so I guess I'd better keep the receipt.. If this doesn't work out, I will be holding out for a peavey 5150 or something like that. I would rather not just burn the money.

I'd rather buy used, the problems are potentially fixed (as was the case with my Bug) and at least you know what problems it has, versus the mystery of a new Bug.
I'm just a kickin' and a gougin' in the mud and the blood and the beer.

I have no experience with Bugera's but I do know Peavey Classic's are built to last. And very heavy.
#18
I was sorely disappointed by the V series Bugera. I tried time and time again to like them, but it just never happened. I LOVE the Peavey classics though. Much clearer, nicer sound.
