I mostly use an EC Ltd Les Paul with a Duncan Distortion. I play metal/Metalcore, deathcore to the Red Hot Chillis to Hendrix and this amp nails all those tones with the right eq and guitar of course. For Metalcore and all the heavier genres I boost the lead channel with my Marshall Blues Breaker 2 and it's can get the direct sound of parkway drives tone witch blew me away considering what amps and stuff they use. Now with out the boost pedal it's still all out metal but with the od boost it really tightens up the bottom end and has a nice mid range growl I can imitate the guitar sound of most of my top Metalcore bands and I've found my perfect tone with this beast. The cleans are beautiful and really blew me away the first time I heard it. Now it's a quiet amp but when on the lead channel it has a tiny little hiss like all high gain amps do. A good quality noise gate will solve this.
Overall Impression — 10
For the music I play it's everything I've wanted in an amp I've been playing and searching for a good tone for 6 years now and I've got the metal tone I've always wanted with it. Now if this was stolen they better have a car or something because I'd like to see a thief run with it. She weighs a bit haha I own a few amps mostly practice amps and I've played through some expensive well known amps before and for the price you can't get better then a Bugera and if your considering buying a Peavey 6505 consider this baby before your spend all your money because this can do the 6505 sound but with a way better clean channel.
Reliability & Durability — 8
I can depend on this amp I've gigged with it many times it's been transported around a few places distances of 150 kilometers and more no problems now old Bugeras were full of problems but it seems they have ironed out all the bugs my guitarist in my band got the normal 6262 a year ago and has gigged with it allot last year no problems even got lots of compliments on our tone with these baby's I will be replacing the tubes in this because every one knows Bugera tubes are not the best I give it an 8 only because the cheap tubes.

Mine was made in 09. The Bugera 6262 Infinium all tube amp is directed to people on a budget that want the tube amp sound with out the major price tag it features 3 channels clean crunch and lead. A presence control, reverb, footswitch, effects loop. Which can be controlled via footswitch it also has a bright switch for the clean which really brightens up your tone great for ye old Strat sounds. I've got the Infinium model which supposedly pro longs tube life I've had it for about 5 months now and still strong I play metal/Metalcore deathcore It is a pretty versatile amp. Now it's lead channel is based on the work horse metal Amp the 6505 and trust me this can do the generic 6505 sounds and more even with the stock Bugera cab don't bag there cabs there not bad once you break the speakers in. It's got a nice metal tone and I've tricked a few people into thinking it was a 6505.
