I really loved the clean tones of the bugera 333XL but i loved the sheer metal of the 6262, would you say that i got the best odf both worlds by buying one with 6L6's in it and will be able to get a good sound across the board?

and dont tell me i made a bad choice with bugeras, thats bull****

Edit: it is in the shipping process and i dont have it yet so thats why im asking the question, or else i would just play it lol

Although EL34s tend to sound a bit more British in terms of tone, they are no slouches in terms of metal.
You will just sound more like a cranked Marshall than a cranked 5150.
The 333 standard has 6L6s in it, and the 333xl has the EL34s, right?

you'll have to rebias your amp if you want it to work with the 6l6's nicely. i forgot what 6l6's add to metal that el34's lack, but it would probably help to experiment.

yea the website im ordering from has 6L6's in them standard so im not going to have to worry about rebiasing and all that

and yea the XL does have EL34's in it but fior some reason on world musical supply.com they are shipping them with 6L6's

There's no harm in testing new things out and experimenting. If you dont need to bias, all the better. Give it a shot. If you don't like it, change back.

so will i get a more fluid 5150 like metal tone with the 6L6's?

should be smoother, yeah. have you tried the amp at all yet? if not, you wouldn't really notice a difference, as there's nothing to compare it to as of yet.

I would honestly wait and see what it sounds like.
You may prefer the ELs, what with the two different drive channels.

It's the amps preamps that give them their voice. That's why a 5150 sounds different than a JSX. Not because of the poweramp tubes.

That doesn't matter. The circuitry is different. Also the 5150 has five gain stages, while the JSX has three.
