Many people snicker and laugh at Buguera amplifiers because they are a cheap amplifier that sometimes can sound kind of corny and generally rips off other manufacturers by building amps that look and sound like some of the more popular boutique amplifiers. This is one of those amplifiers that really looks like a Dumble style amplifier. You basically have a two channel amplifier that features two 6L6 power tubes as well as 3 12aX7 preamp tubes. This is a nice cheap and inexpensive amplifier for someone who is on a budget and need something that can be workable for light gigging or home playing. I certainly would not recommend this amplifier for anyone going on the road for touring or any type of night tonight and taking or abuse. I don't feel that this amplifier will hold up to the rigorous touring schedules of many professional and want to be professional musicians.

Cool vintage look and feel
Authentic 2-channel preamp design from the '60s featuring 3 x 12AX7 tubes—everything from purring blues to mind-blowing crunch
Integrated high-class reverb with dedicated Reverb control
Vintage Equalizer section with dedicated Bass, Mid, Treble and Presence controls
Normal and Bright inputs for ultimate sound character to perfectly match your guitar
Multi-gain stage Lead channel with Pre Gain, Post Gain and Master controls
Amazing Mode switch to select between Triode or Pentode operation
Heavy-duty footswitch for Channel and Reverb function included
Impedance switch (4, 8 and 16 Ohms) to match virtually any speaker cabinet
High-quality components and exceptionally rugged construction ensure long life


You have a few cool features within this amplifier to give you a variance of features to sculpt your picture perfect guitar tone. All around this is simple two channel amp and it's pretty self explanatory on the control panel. It won't take you to long to find a decent town or a workable tone for your bedroom use work garage plant. You have some simple control and EQing that will get you up and running quite quickly and painlessly.


You can find these amplifiers new online and in many guitar retailers for right around $360. That's a pretty inexpensive price for a guitar amplifier that has two channels of operation and a decent sounding tone. If you want to look cool and hip than this is not your amp, but if you are low on a budget and need a decent two channel amp then this will fit your needs quite well.
