Just read the article and thought i would pass the info along...

Guitarplayer just did a article on Bugera and it is confirmed they are Behringer. It states Behringer started the side company called Bugera and has been working on the project for the last two years. Also a side article from the Founder of Behringer states they brung in engineers to study other amps and he states that he has always wanted to start up a boutique line of amp so thats why he did it. And thats all straight from Uli Behringer himself...

Pick up the mag for the full article/review and a few pics of what the iside of there amps look like.

Thanks for sharing the info. That explains the low cost for those little bugers' Personally, I don't know I would call bugera a boutique amp...IMHO.
#3
we all knew that

but still, although new, they dont seem too unreliable, and they have a good grip on the market for cheap high gain tube amps, and if they sound good (which they will because theyre tube) then im not fussed who makes them. IMO more companies should be doing cheaper tubes
Get off this damn forum and play your damn guitar.

People were disputing by saying that Bugera was more of a separate company and did their own thing apart from Behringer. But i think IbanezPsycho is saying that really its all behringer, and thats prolly the reason the amps are so cheap.
#7
i thought it was like a sort of offspring company. almost like squire to fender, but a little less independant

We all thought they did but it was never confirmed. This confirmed it... And theres alot of people that swore by them just being the distributor only.


Yea, tis true. All I knew until this article was that Behringer did the distro....oh well, its all good

Yup, its still all good.. Havent heard any more complaints about them having issues so i guess they worked the bugs out and there still a great alternative.

One thing that did perk my intrests is they stated they examined Soldano, Bogner, Matchless, Rivera, Mesa/Boogie, Marshall and Peavey of coarse. So sometime in the future we might see some cheap high end amp clones down the line.
#11
This is true. Remember, there are some significant differences between the Bugeras and the peaveys they resemble. I hope to see a Bogner Ecstasy copy. I will dance the good times dance then

Does anybody really care?

Jackson is Fender, Jaguar was Ford and is now Tata, Rover is BMW, Seat and Bentley are both VW, Pedigree Petfoods is Mars Confectionery etc etc.

The parent company means sod all, what any affiliated companies make is irrelevant and likewise the name on the front is meaningless.

All that matters is how the product performs for the price you pay.
Actually called Mark!

I wasn't aware that anyone really cared? Especially after the many other threads that have all come to the same conclusion.

its kind of a money thing. They want to appeal to the lower end 'beginners' market but at the same time they don't want to relate their name to piece of **** amps, so they make a new line.

aren't line 6 and bogner the same company too?

No

And who cares if Behringer owns Bugera, they sound good.

lol wut?

Are you joking or serious?
They're separate companies (although I hear there's a new all tube low end Bogner amp that is being distributed by Line 6 - but Ling 6 did NOT make the map in any way or form).
