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.

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.


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.
