has anyone else seen these amps advertised on the Behringer website?....they say they were debuted at NAMM and they seem to be modeled after the Peavey xxx and the 6505....they are all tube and go for around $650 brand new...anyone else seen these or have any other info??

I think gabe posted about them elsewhere. it's an extremely unfortunate name, I'll say that.
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.

Still looks like a decent amp. If Shane Gibson plays them they have to be good.

Behringer never invented, developed or created any damn thing except incredibly cheap imitations of other people's products. They have a one year warranty and B will stand solidly behind it. But it will break after the warranty period and it will not be worth fixing.

If you buy something good, you'll have it for the rest of your life. These are all going to be landfill in 5 - 10 years.

You're better off buying something smaller with fewer gadgets that is built to last. Then when you move on it'll still have some resale value.

Bugera is it's own amp company.
Behringer is just helping them out now from what I understand.
So please, don't expect the same quality out of Bugera as you do out of Behringer.
I think the Bugera's will be amazing once Behringer starts distrubuting them in the second quarter.

They are pretty blatant copies of the Peavey XXX and 5150/6505 amps.

That being said if the price is right and they sound like the originals i'd buy them.

ALL Behringers come with Bugera speakers. They ARE the same quality, because they are the parts that Behringer uses. And you will find that the speakers in Behringers are pretty much the weakest link in a fairly fragile chain. It's sort of a tie with those stupid cheap hollow shaft pots that break when you look at them hard.

You may know more about the finer points of the corporate structures of these companies. Me, I'll just lump them together and think of them the same way I do Chinese tools, good enough if you're only going to do a job one time, or until you get paid and can afford something decent.

Companies like Behringer don't just help someone out.

shoulda called it the 666 for it's quality- the clip sounded horrible, but it may have just been that guy's playing. i'm not getting one.

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.

Bugera is it's own company.
Behringer uses Bugera speakers, so, just because the speakers suck, means that the amps will too? I know Bugera speakers are terrible, because I have a GMX with 2 Bugera's in it, and they suck like something fierce. What I'm trying to say, is that it doesn't hurt to have a little faith in companies. I think it's downright stupid to judge a company based on its distributor.

Anyway, I think a Bugera head with some V30 speakers would sound awesome.

Just listen to the vid on Gearwire, it sounds horrible. I can get better tone out of an MG.
A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who isn't a closed-minded moron.

If we don't judge it by the distributor, then lets judge it by the parts that have their name on it. If they build crap speakers then what sort of transformers do you suppose they'll come up with.

Buy a used 5150 for the same money and kick its ass and be playing long after that crap has been recycled.

Hello everyone, i have had the bugera 333xl and the 6260 amps. When i recieved the 333xl it sounded ok at best. I tore the cabinet apart and installed some Celestion T100 Speakers and it made the amp sound much fuller and had a rich tone to it. Same thing with the 6260. All in all these amps have a great sound when it is eq'ed to your favorite sound. My specs on the 333xl for my crunch/lead channel B-5 M-0 T-6 Drive to taste and have at it. I have yet to have a problem at all. I let the amps warm up several minutes before playing and atleast an hour before recording. To hear both amps in action www.myspace.com/speedyclaxton2008 my band recorded with them and it came out well.

This thread is from like 2 years ago...

however it's funny how people back then were all over Bugera saying "they suck", or "they're terrible" and now Bugera is a hot UG recommendation.
