Ive tried the 333 a few days ago and I fell in love with it, I was just wondering though, would it be suitable for bedroom practise? Im having my doubts...

Probably not, but you should take it to the Bugera thread

It's not exactly a bedroom amp, but like all metal amps it gets its gain from the preamp, not the power amp. So honestly your tone won't really take a hit by playing it at bedroom levels, so I'd go for it. It's not like there are similar amps in the price range that are that much quieter.

Well Its a really big amp and unless I join a band sumtime in the next year or 2, I would'nt be using it above 1 - 2 volume.

Instead of the Bugera I was thinking the Epi Valve Junior and a MXR 10 band EQ & Distotion/OD pedal of some sort. Would that be a good bedroom setup?

Well 5 watts is alot more bedroom friendly than 120


haha it sounds to me like a better plan because ive got a £400 budget so, the epi VJ combo will be 80 and ill get an EQ of some sort and a OD. The rest of my savings can go towards a new guitar??

I have a similar issue having downsized and amp yet to decide on an amp, but need something small. Would most people recommend a small setup like that one

PRS SE Singlecut
Jim Dunlop Cry Baby

My 6260 sounds decent at bedroom levels. But if you aren't playing in a band I wouldn't recommend it.

Not for metal, you will be disappointed.

You can use a Bugera at bedroom levels no problem.

If you're EQ'd loose, you'll sound loose anyway.

What about with a metal muff? Would that be able to play metal?

EDIT = Thinking about it Im not sure if its worth the bugera just for bedroom levels, since it is 120 watts valve.

a metal muff and a epi vj will work for metal. i would also suggest a eq and a reverb pedal. and swapping the preamp tube to a 12at7.

First off, that will sound like a glorified SS practice amp, specifically a hybrid. I don't get what the hell is with the craze of using 5 watters and pedals to do stuff other then clean and blues and maybe some classic rock. Secondly you're using pedals to cover the amp's true sound rather than letting the amp shine through. Third, what's the point of the 12AT7? He wants higher gain, that'd just be setting him back. Fourth, with all the money you'd be spending on the amp + pedals + tube, you could get a Peavey Mini Colossal. Which is a 5 watter that actualy should be doing metal.

doesn't sound at all like a ss...............and the 12at7 alot smother more clean headroom and when your using a pedal the break up is sweet the 12ax7 is a little to buzzy. don't knock what you never tried sometimes it's ok to listen. the mini is 500 bucks and the 8" speaker will be a handicap.

I find the 333XL does just fine at lower volumes for metal, plus if and when you do decide to start gigging, you already have a gig ready amp at your fingertips.
