The all-tube Budda Bully guitar amplifier head is a spare-no-expense high gain juggernaut that is at home in any guitar rig. The amp features 3 channels; clean, rhythm and lead, all with independent 3 band EQ, reverb control, effects loops with send and return levels, plus separate resonance and presence controls. It's a great fit for any kind of high-octane guitar application, from rock to blues to metal to fusion, the Budda Bully is the king of the playground. It just might take the other kids' lunch money.
Channel 2's effects loop features a switch that makes the effects loop global, for incredible versatility in effects routing. The amp also features a patent pending feature called PowerPan, where the user can pan between solid state and tube rectifiers and anywhere in between! PowerPan makes the different tonal options almost limitless.
There's even a 2nd rectifier tube to stand as a spare in case of a tube failure. The Budda Bully also features a 1/2 power switch for operating the amplifier in either ½ power or full power mode. Using the ½ power switch along with the PowerPan feature allows the output of the amp to be between 25 and 120 watts for amazing versatility. Each channel features a footswitchable pedal style lead boost called Overboost that is also 100% tube driven. The back panel features an amplifier chain section with a power-amp in/preamp-out jack and a slave output, impedance selector and MIDI in/through for use in professional MIDI switching rigs.
