    Good everything has already been said, it is a tube amp 22 watts with one speaker 12 (3 x 12AX7 preamp and 2 x EL84 amp. There a triode and pentode mode.
    2 inputs are available, normal and bright. There are all possible settings and classic digital reverb. 2 channels are available, clear and saturated. An effects loop is provided. Pedal comes with the amp switcher in 2 channels and to activate / deactivate the reverb. Finally, it weighs 19kg.
    In short, it is very complete.

    In short, it is very complete.

    UTILIZATION

    The config is super simple, it sounds immediately. I often use the amp at home by just plugging my guitar without effect in live on stage using the effects loop and pedals. Is impeccable in all versions.

    SOUNDS

    I was looking for a real warm and crystal clear sound, but with dynamic, I was looking for a sound closer to the Hot Rod (off budget for me) and well ... I'm happy! The receiver meets the wonderful sound of the guitar. Soul, funk, jazz through the course and to the African rhythms, Caribbean or Jamaican, bugera ensures that serious! For distortion, crunch it is also perfect, the sound is warm. For the, blues rock, jazz-fusion is impeccable, and even to rock a little more support. on the other hand for, you will need an additional distortion if you require more punchy.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it now for over a year. I did some scenes with him and I've never had any problems. The sound is there, this amp is amazing. I made this choice seeing a friend use pro live regularly. The price / quality ratio is unbeatable, and finally a pure sound at an affordable price. Of course if I could I take a DV or a Mesa Boogie Mark but in the meantime (and pure long) I am very proud and happy with my little Bugera. I remake this choice without hesitation.

    The overdrive channel is ok but you have to play a lot with the eq to get a nice sound (there's also the boost but I find it useless as possible to actuate the pedal and out of the question to play with all the time). Personally I am not in use.

    To be objective in this price range, you will find no better, the pure light with all the connections, scalable by plugging a cab in addition, changing lamps ect, a good foundation, rather than buying a 50w transistor for 200 euros and save a little more Take this amp, you will never be disappointed of quality / price ratio.

    UTILIZATION

    Very simple

    Yes it is versatile, except for large metalheads

    The sounds that I did not like were the sounds they were too saturated drafts, at least I have not managed to make them sound, but not too try either

    In the price range it is the best, after nine for 500 euros (or 300 euros used) was a VOX AC15 which is more dynamic with a strong personality in relation to Bughera

    OVERALL OPINION

    I used 3 years, my first tube amp (formerly a Marshall 10 W transistor (too bad either for beginners)
    What is the particular feature you like best,
    Very good clear sound that sounds blues
    least?
    The saturated his aue I did not managed to make it sound

    Have you tried many other models before buying it?
    not
    How would you rate the quality / price?
    great 232 euros on new thommann, now it is more expensive


    With experience, you do again this choice?
    No, but not because the amp is not good, only I want to try lots of amps and change up to find one that suits me (I think Marshall amps) and go upmarket

    This is a tube amp 70 watt, you can connect other speakers to the amp and there is a switch 4, 8 or 16 ohms. You can use the amp in pentode or triode (3 or 5 lights).
    It has a clear channel and a saturated (gain adjustment and volume) very effective. Reverb (an overall adjustable parameter. A tri-band equalizer with a booster medium (on or off).
    You can enter into the amp through the normal channel, or bright (the difference is not obvious but ... the bright is still slightly brighter actually).
    The footswitch pedal included with switches from clear channel saturated channel and vice versa and enable / disable the reverb.

    The footswitch pedal included with switches from clear channel saturated channel and vice versa and enable / disable the reverb.

    UTILIZATION

    Nothing more simple, this is a vintage amp is just turning the knobs according to what you want ...

    SOUNDS

    The sound is excellent, a really good surprise for the price it costs. A big warm sound, the light effect is there!
    Of course it does not compete with a big Marshall or Orange amp head but it does not cost the same either and frankly I've always found it very satisfying to use and I am not alone in my case.
    Parameters are sensitive and accurate, we can easily get the sound you want, clean, soft, soft, hard, slightly saturated, highly saturated, loaded low, or not, the booster medium is effective, not too outrageous, the equalizer also works very well, and reverb as modest as it is very well calculated, it is fine and clean and had its effect.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had it for 4 years, I sold it because I was not playing and I needed money ... Otherwise I would have kept and in any case, I highly recommend it.
    Note qu'apparamment new version edited by jackson (ie new components) is out and I do not know what it is worth, this is probably very close to me but I had the old model. To recognize if I understand:
    old model: blue LED facade
    new model red diode (or orange I know more)
    Here's but probably still a good amp for its price makes, I repeat, unbeatable!

    So low cost amp 22w lamps on a wafer 12 'with an interesting connection incorporating a loop. Normal entry and bright.
    Dual channel with boost. A stand-by as well.
    Without proper reverb.
    Sold with an indestructible pedal with LEDs.
    The EQ is common to both channels.

    The overall structure inspires confidence. It is even pretty.

    The power is more than enough for rehearsals and live. beyond anyway we transplanted. The power-down switch is effective.

    For sound, if we take the shortcuts, the clean and OD is fenderien marshalien.
    Then we can make any type of music. For metal, it will add a hi-gain pedal anyway.

    SOUNDS

    Overall, it is extremely versatile, with good dynamics. You can play everything. Played with Fender or Gibson, he of the respondent.
    The clean is really clean :)

    OVERALL OPINION

    How long have you use it? 4 years
    Have you tried many other models before buying it? full, I have several amps fender to marshall, laney and Bogner.
    One is engaging and easily transportable.

    What is the particular feature you like the most: clean
    least? BUGERA logo, which is brilliant platoc pourrave!

    How would you rate the quality / price? unbeatable
    considering what I just said. For the same thing in the majors, it will be four times more expensive mini.
    With experience, you do again this choice? No doubt

    Very good choice of amp without breaking the bank.
    The sound is okay in blues, blues / rock and even its clear it sounds great
    It is equipped with a pedal set that allows the selection Clair / crunch and Reverb.

    UTILIZATION

    Use in training (note it sounds hard to sensitive neighbors)
    Use repeated with a bassist and a drummer: power enough

    SOUNDS

    It suits my style of play blues / rock unpretentious.
    In sound, it sounds tube amp.
    Must remain in the idea of ​​quality / price is very good.

    I have changed the lamps to see I did not feel any difference between the original versions and the Mesa model.
    An important point: I use it with a zoom G3X and for once, the qualities of the amp are impaired. In fact, this stuff needs to have everything in analog if you want to keep the "heat" or round lamps.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for almost 2 years I had a Marshall V8080 (too powerful and too dry) and linebaker transistor.

    defects because there: 1 / no output "line / headphone"! to play soft it is not possible
    to make a sound recording and it takes a well adapted micro ... it's pretty galley

    2 / amp when heated (attention he must have turned some time) emits vezonnement (bzzzzz) related to a problem with the components of the transformer that I have not solved

    22 watts

    UTILIZATION

    Yes, it's simple, do not need the manual.
    IT is perfect for a pretty fat sound, so for clean sounds is more
    complicated, but we must know what we want ...

    SOUNDS

    YeS, it suits me.
    I plug my Lag and it does it very well.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Excellent quality / price (I would say unbeatable)
    I would do this choice, but I would test with a guitar
    with single coil pickups.

    22W tube amp, with EL84.
    Digital reverb, possibly a little long but clean and finally being more convincing than many spring reverb.
    Effects loop.
    Not too heavy: 19kg

    HP output switch with 4.8 or 16 ohms (what comfort)
    Big plus for the leaflet that explains very well how to adjust the output of the amp if you plug in an external cable and makes a clear and comprehensive inventory of all the situations.

    SOUNDS

    Sounds we get enough going everywhere with this amp, the clean is a little fenderien.
    The distortion does not register Heavey metal, against krank, rock crunch and distortion are convincing. It's not very original sounds but it goes great on just about everything.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had three months, I had alot of amps and I tried really hard.
    Buy because it was really cheap with the idea of ​​dismantling and reassembling another amp. Finally it is great like that.

    It really is a versatile amp on which little play just about everything except the big metal. Nothing original but super convincing as peavey classic on which it is pumped elsewhere.

    What I like:
    - Size, weight and power make it an amp quite fit for group play without busting kidneys.
    - Effects loop.
    - Sounds convincing but without originality
    - Wide range of interesting and gain over the entire range
    - The price

    What I like least:
    - Electrical design, overall it is pretty well done, the components are not top notch, but there is nothing catastrophic suel downside: lamps powers mounted on the PCB, not necessarily a guarantee of reliability in time.
    - The HP not terrible origin, who does not value the amp.

    UTILIZATION

    Simple configuration, even a beginner can find sy in minutes.
    The settings are effective and offer a varied palette.


    Clear manual but no real purpose.

    We always get good sound and after 2 minutes of settings (then 10 seconds when it is known), we obtain the sound that you want! A real pleasure!

    SOUNDS

    It is very suitable to my style of music (rock, power rock)

    The clean sound is far superior to any marshall I've tested, and warmer and rounder than in fender! Ideal for blues!

    The clean sound is far superior to any marshall I've tested, and warmer and rounder than in fender! Ideal for blues!

    The overdrive channel gives envy, gain and presence controls allow to find an infinity of different sounds.

    A truly effective boost also helps shine solo (I though the locks on all my riffs chorus :))

    I play with Paul and a telecaster and respecting each guitar retains its small grain makes addictive!
    The effects loop is very convenient and avoids the rough side of a series of effects on the front.
    I love all the sounds of this amp even in settings that do not match, I seriously think its small grain makes it unique and original and offers a serious alternative to the "classic" that we know and recognize.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for two years, alternating use with other amps (fender performer 1000 Marshall JCM 800) and I do not get tired, its grain in fact the most versatile amp I have had. (Light and saturated all good !)

    The value for money is excellent! New or secondhand € 300 to € 210 (the average price of a transistor in other brands) powerful enough to play in groups and correct finishes.
    I remake that choice without hesitate especially now, before my only obstacle was the mark but once tried, more doubts license.
    My advice would be to try to get the account quality.
    S the way it is the top selling Thomann and never found in time, c is a sign of quality, and I understand, I think I would never sell.
