Bugera V22

Bugera is creating some buzz with their line of amps, especially the 333 and the V22 models. A friend of mine bought the Bugera V22, and he is very impressed and happy with it. I can understand why. Very appealing price point, great tones and lots of flexibility. It's hard to not like that!

The Bugera V22 is a 1x12 Tube Combo Amp and its 22 watts makes it a good choice for practice, home recording, or smaller club gigs. The 2 EL84 power tubes gives the amp a nice, fat tone, with a little bit of early breakup without having to crank the amp all the way up. The preamp section has three 12ax7 tubes.

This amp has a Mode switch for switching between Pentode and Triode operation. In Triode mode, the amp behaves as a tube amp with less power, which means you get a different sound. Very interesting and impressive that an inexpensive amp comes with this option.

There are 2 channels on the Bugera V22 - clean and lead. You also get 2 inputs - Bright and Normal. The V22 has knobs for Bass, Mid and Treble, as well as a Presence control.

The speaker in the Bugera V22 is a 12 inch speaker, and you can also hook up an external cabinet if you want. The V22 has an impedance switch for adjusting it to 4, 8 or 16 ohm configurations.

With this amp, you also get a built-in digital reverb, and it's a reliable, good sounding reverb.

Included with the V22 is also a sturdy footswitch, for switching between channels and turning the reverb on and off.

The Bugera V22 is definitely worth a closer look. For those looking for a small and great sounding tube combo at an affordable price, this amp is a strong contender.

You can buy the Bugera V22 from Amazon.

This is a really good amp to a great price.
