Comments about Bugera V55HD Infinium 55W Tube Guitar Amp Head:
I ditched my beloved Twin Reverb, boxy Blues Junior and downright jittery Blues Deluxe for a Bugera T-50, V22 and now the V55 (to get the 6L6 clean back in my house.) I love them all. It's SO easy to dial in great tones. I set all knobs to 5 and make minor tweaks to 4 or 6. Simple. I do have great speaker cabs containing Celestion Alnico Cream, Jensen C12K, Heritage Greens and V30s, so that helps, but I have a field day mixing and matching. All sound great with the different tube heads (T-50 EL34s, V22 EL84s and V55 6L6s.) They all have great personalities that add warmth and fun to my SSS Strat, P-90 SG and HH Les Paul. The V55 reminds me most of the clean Twin, but a more manageable 55 watts I can switch/cut to 22. Also, unlike the Twin, you have clean and dirty foot-switchable channels, gain and master volumes. Vintage sound, great, deep cleans and a beautiful gain structure. Super on-board digital reverb (and remember, I owned the Twin.) Test these out, put a little of the money you'll save toward your speakers and have a blast.
