Here's just a taste of what the world is saying about BUGERA amps.

Review: Bugera 1990 InfiniumIt is hard to find a better amp for less than 400 Euro. The feature set is really good, the amp sounds like an old fellow and provides two well sounding channels. However, the best points are that you can use different tubes simultaneously and the automatic Tube Biasing function. It is hard to believe, how affordable this amp is and it receives 4,5 out of 5 points, because it sounds well, is very good finished and has a feature set beyond other, much more expensive amplifiers…

Review: Bugera BTX36000 ‘The Nuke’ Holy bottom end, Batman! Is this a red hot bass rig or rackmountable seismic anomaly?No matter where we set the tone controls, the amp remained responsive and useful. BXT36000 is indeed built like a nuke but the tone has a certain finesse that surprised us, given all the power on tap. There are plenty of features(like independent overload protection!) to make this great value even at twice the sticker price and, to be honest, we don’t know how Behringer can offer such value. But be warned, this thing is loud – so get ready to rumble.

Review: Bugera BVP5500 Good ideas. Good looks. But when all is said and done isn't it all about tone?

The Bugera BVP5500 has loads of features packed into a fairly small package. The valve feature works fine but even rolling it back offered really toneful sounds. We still can’t believe it’s only 800 bills, so go and get one now before they spot the typo in their price.

Title: Bugera 6262 Amp Review by Terry White
Reviewed: Bugera 6260

[...]this is what I call a cant loose amplifier. The sound is there, the tone is there, the power is there, and probably one of the most important things is that the service is there. This company does stand behind this amplifier, and not just for the multi-million dollar stars, but for just the common guitarists like you and me. [...] If you are in the market for an all tube amplifier you would be almost nuts not to at the very least go out and try one for yourself. [...] Dollar for dollar I do not know of any amplifier out there anywhere made by anyone that can even come close to the Bugera 6262.

Design is something this amp head packs, especially for the price. It has three channels, an effects loop, and a whole lot of options. The amp looks and feels durable, and has a grill cover in the front, back, and top which should keep the tubes nicely ventilated, while at the same time making the amp look more attractive. The amp is very attractive, but I wish they had use real metal for the decorations.

Title: Bugera 6262-212 Combo Review
Reviewed: Bugera 6262-212
In February 2008 I took ownership of a Bugera 6262-212 120w combo. My first impression was it was built like a tank. A very sturdy cabinet construction that obviously looked like it would stand up to the rigors of the road....plus, it looked great.

Review: Budget Blaster: 6260 Head and 412H-BK 4x12 cabinet"NO QUESTION ABOUT IT—the Bugera 6260/412H-BK is an impressive gig-worthy half stack that’s easily capable of hanging tough against more costly rivals. It’s destined to become a hit with budget-minded rockers and I suspect we’ll be seeing them on some big-time stages real soon too. The real bottom line: Bugera is for real..."

Review: BUGERA 333-212 Guitar Combo"If you’re not familiar with the concept of ‘boutique’ guitar amplifiers, the phrase broadly applies when describing any amp that is assembled using some degree of hand-wiring or equally skill-dependant element in its manufacturing process. Boutiquestyle guitar amps can either be jaw-droppingly simple designs or else they bristle with a plethora of toneenhancing whistles and bells that make no bones about their ability to put you at the cutting edge."

Review: Bugera 333-212 and 6262-212"Behringer has taken a glorious step, um, backwards. As one of the music industry’s big technology companies since 1989, Behringer has historically focused on affordable recording tools, live-performance gear, and DJ systems. Not surprisingly, when Behringer has made forays into the guitar market, technology has typically been the driving force—as evidenced by products such as the V-Tone and V-Ampire modeling amps, the V-Amp modeling processor, and the recent series of USB guitars. But now Behringer is embracing decades-old circuits to start a completely new company: Bugera, a maker of all-tube guitar amps."

Reviewed: Bugera 6260
"When we heard that Behringer was behind their own brand of tube amps under the Bugera name, we just had to hear one. Bugera's Joe Delaney was happy to oblige, showing us the biting clean channel, before moving to more of a Texas clean tone (still biting, but mainly only bites into 72 oz. steaks). The main event on this all tube amp, however, is the rocking crunch channel."

Review: Bugera 6260 120W valve amplifier head"…this section with loads of gain wound on is simple insanity and absolutely great fun."

"Volume at this level is totally addictive; your guitar comes alive in your hands, endless sustain and controllable feedback are there for the taking, and you’re surfing that glorious fine line between sonic nirvana and total chaos."

"Even when running with high levels of distortion, (the 6260) manages to retain definition in the sound and doesn’t mush up like many other amps I can think of. It really does sound good."

Review: Bugera 333, 6260 and 412-H Cabinet"There is no denying that there is nothing sonically sweeter then a valve amp fully cranked. For years guitarists have been forced to choose a tone based on budget. Enter Bugera. A new line of tube amps that you can take home for under a grand. Bugera have drawn inspiration from some of the world’s most popular rock amps to create the 6262 and the 333. Both heads are 120 watt driven by 4 6L6’s that can be changed for EL34’s if you so desire. The 6262 uses five 12AX7’s in the preamp while the 333 uses four. These amps are the real deal. Great construction, features, aesthetics and most importantly sound."
