I was actually surprised at how good this amplifier did sound. I've heard so much talk and trash about the Bugera amplifiers that I was already a little biased towards them. This is an amp that even surprise me at how well it performed at the price point that was listed at. This amplifier features a pentrode and triode power switch which means it cuts the rate of power from 120 watts down the 60 watts of power. This is great if you want to dial in a little less headroom and a little more spongy grittier attack in the high gain channel.
The tone of this amplifier can come off a little fizzy or buzzy but not that that's necessarily a bad thing but just a taste preference thing. It's not really a tone that I like that much but I could see how it could be likable to some guitarist. This is an easy amp to dial in and it can only take you just a few minutes to find that sweet spot for this amplifier.
At new you can find these amps listed for right around $400. That is a great deal for a multi channel high gain in queen amplifier. I highly recommend this amplifier if you need an inexpensive amplifier to me you're practicing needs or band situation.
