Bugera 333XL
Bugera is really known for their budget friendly amplifiers that take on the more well-known amplification companies and expand upon it. This is a three channel 120 W amplifier that is EL 34-based power section. You have three channels of operation consisting of clean, crunch, and lead channel. There's a lot of features involved in this amplifier such as being able to convert it to a 6L6 power tube section. That is reminiscent of the Mesa boogie amplifier is to allow you to switch between EL 34 power tubes and the 6L6 power tubes. This gives the user a lot more versatility and their tone and being confined to one style power tube section.

UTILIZATION

Hand-built 120-Watt amplifier driven by 4 x EL34 valves (convertible to 6L6)
Classic 3-channel preamp design (Clean, Crunch, Lead) featuring 4 x 12AX7 valves for terrifying punch and mind-blowing gain
Integrated high-class reverb with dedicated Reverb control
XL switches on the Lead and Crunch channels for absolute killer sounds
Independent Equalizer sections for each channel with dedicated Bass, Mid and Treble control
Classic Presence control for awesome sound shaping
Impedance switch (4, 8 and 16 Ohm) to match virtually any speaker cabinet
FX Loop with independent Send and Return level controls also serves as Boost function
Heavy-duty footswitch for Channel selection and FX Loop/Boost function included
Line output with dedicated Level control
High-quality components and exceptionally rugged construction ensure long life


SOUNDS


The clean tone on this amplifier is not that bad really you can't do a whole lot of variation and features with a clean tone.... it either sounds good or it doesn't. The crunch channel is a British style tone you can get you anywhere from 70s rock all away up to new or modern tones. The lead channel is a little bit higher in its saturation as well as the mid range is more higher focused. This gives the user a lot more usable lead sounds from this channel. They do you get a few extra bells and whistles for each channel that include reverb and its own EQ section for each. There is a lot of shaping ability in the sand which allows a variety of possible sounds.

OVERALL OPINION

This is a good amplifier for someone who needs a budget friendly amplifier with three channels of operation. If you need something that's going to cover a lot of ground and a lot of bases and this might be the way to go for you. Overall visitation sound amplifier but nothing that I would take on the road because I would not trust its durability on the road because of the build quality falls in this amplifier. But if you need something that's cheap and you can basically use for practice or at home playing then this might be a way to go.

Bugera 333XL
BUGERA 333 XL 120W all-tube head
3 channels indpendants (clean, crunch and lead)
noise gate Intgr footswitch, effect boost (to go solo or activate an effects loop)
reverb (selectable only 1 channel)
Lacks only the effect (chorus, delay) <img class="smiley" src="https://fr.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_biggrin.gif" alt="biggrin" />
It has a slecteur of impdence (4 to 8 or 16 ohms)
It may even change for 6L6 in place of EL34 home!!

UTILIZATION

Very simple configuration, we get faster the sound is DSIR.
Wishing all beginners on the lamp and given the era of my budget, <img class="smiley" src="https://fr.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt="wink" />

SOUNDS

I chose to practice the style (death), for the price I t bluff saturation is trs good against by lack of a few "safe" and attack.
Much better than a Peavey ValveKing example ....
Little breath taking into account the noise gate Intgr.
The effect XL?? I still searching ... No diffrence with or without <img class="smiley" src="https://fr.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt="sad" />
the EL34 growl trs well, better than the 6L6 criardent too my taste.

OVERALL OPINION

His major concern: the test in time, I bought it came out.
A score of RPET, a dozen concerts.
Appraisal:
- The footswitch, the connection trs trs so frail so small HS after a short time.
- 1 year warranty, made nine months that I have, it is now rpration: symptme? the head and knobs light up
but the lamps do not dmarrent therefore no sound. It is guaranteed of course, but after 9 months it ragant.
But I take the greatest care, she not travel in the trunk, but the rear seat in its original carton with foam adsorbent shock.
I can do better.
It's too fragile, at least, the components are too low-end, at the same time for normal selling price.
Too bad because this head sound, it has it all except good quality components.
Résumé in a good quality price, but that does not last over time. Fortunately, she broke down during the warranty if the rental of 600 annual use, hurt ....
Today I sold it (the brand new hit), and I'm dropping the switchblade of H n 'K shame because even in 1400, it does not include all the features of the Bugera.
This head had the potential is there Behringer bte that put the bowels of shit ....

EDIT 2 May 09

Here is the story good and ends BUGERA between the head and I died ...
So that is all those waiting to know: YES IT'S DISPOSABLE!!
Finally, I know for certain the price is attractive but hey I finally bought one of the krank revolution which is absolutely not in the same budget but ...
Today I prefer the quality, this is my 4th head in 3 years so I hope to have put the price will set the bp ...

Well here I received the head and the cabinet yesterday so I can not speak for reliability but it can take stock ...
120W "everything" lamps
3 channels (clean, crunch, lead)
noise gate function and XL on crunch and lead channels
master reverb and presence
line out
in and out effects loop
output level adjustable pr effects and line out.
classic and quickly took over ...

UTILIZATION

Well I'll give you an eyeful ... you fiddle, you seek ... and you find the sound ...
good laugh I've made it easy even though it is full of knobs ^ ^
for what are after TDE obtaining a good sound it's still a matter of taste ...
the manual (I slap us the snare not need to leave additional math to run an amp) is rather clear and pleasant with the luxury of being written in French! ^ ^
well I agree with my colleague: the treble if pushed too ... it is strange, just a sense of play with a lightsaber ... !
by falls against the knobs are not agree mine are not at all sensitive!
moreover, the reverb I pushing it or I remove it ... not much to say.
good for the most part you will not put 20 years to find a sound out of the beast.

SOUNDS

Okay so I proceeded as follows: nothing just scratches + amp and my pedalboard next.
I play the good melo death, I play in SI and MI, I alternate heavy rhythms with solos ... for test I played with a ESP EX STD: EMG 81 + 85. So to clean the canal after having quite a hack I'm not the one I get a suitable reelment ... but it sounds good too round or too metal for my taste but it's still a personal decision. The crunch is not exploitable metal pr my game, but very interesting for the british blues or rock. The lead channel is one on which I am most backward: after the hacking: a big metal sound, especially with the function XL ... but the evil has j'au you describe the type of sound in MI is not ring on his fat, with EMG's plenty of good fishing but I was expecting something more impressive ...
good to be said that the sound is fairly accurate, I find that I lack a bit of attack ...
good with pedals ... A slap ... of course it gives me the sound I use despuis quite some time but hey it gives great power to the amp: noise gate NS 2 boss, ibanez weeping demon7, KK equlizer MXR, Boss reverb, MT II, ​​and phaser compressor.

OVERALL OPINION

Well as I said 24 test is not what will decide the fate of the head ...
certainly for the price it will be hard to beat!
I played a peavey valve king head, marshmall jcm 800 and 2 or 3 times triple mesa correct: good bin marshall I did not like it's the grain of his is not my style ...
vk 100: I liked the sound nature, but saw all the enmerdes ... a real crap this head.
the mesa nothing to say, this one seems to me promising although I have reservations about fiabilitée ...
right after it's value judgments I understand all those n'on no money for a mesa ... but after we arrive at the area of ​​disposable amps ... I think we should take care of choice, after I think this amp is better now the potential to one of his personal opinion.
for questions please.
