Overview

The hand-built 150W Bugera Classic Tube Amp is a hi-gain guitar amplifier driven by 4-EL34 tubes. The vintage preamp design from the '60s features 3-ECC83 tubes for terrifying punch and mind-blowing gain. Four input connectors link channels 1 and 2 via patch cable to mix the different tonal characters of each channel for ultimate tone.

The Bugera 1960 Classic amp's vintage equalizer section offers dedicated Bass, Mid, Treble and Presence controls. The impedance is switchable to 4, 8, or 16 Ohms to match virtually any speaker cabinet. An included FX Loop boasts a dedicated Level switch and true Bypass function, while the Bugera 1960 Classic amp's high-quality components and exceptionally rugged construction ensure long life.

Almost from the get-go, guitarists have been asking for that classic British bite in what's becoming the Bugera style. Bugera engineers did a lot of listening to obscure, long-departed Brit designs and spent most of 2008 tweaking to get hand-selected EL34 and ECC83 tubes to play nice together. Finally, they added a no-compromise non-master volume for direct signal path and a huge output transformer with specially nested windings for increased dynamic response and clarity.

The first-class Bugera EL34 power amp tubes and an additional true-bypass effects loop put the finishing touch to the Bugera 1960. Bugera guitar amplifiers are hand made in compliance with the strictest manufacturing standards, ensuring durability and reliability. They feature classic tube electronics, robust switches and potentiometers, high-grade transformers and, of course, hand-picked and precisely matched Bugera tubes. The care taken in construction and component arrangement ensures that your Bugera 1960 Classic Tube Amp Head will withstand even the roughest handling on the road.

Great Amp, Heres Why

By Jared

Comments about Bugera 1960 Classic 150W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

This head is well worth the buy, especially because you can spend THOUSANDS on amp heads. I run this head through a 6 pedal effects chain and out through a Marshall MG412 cab. (which is really cheap and shabby) Even at this disadvantage, this head SCREAMS. You get all 150W, all the time. To get great clean, warm tones from this head, bridging the inputs is a must. Mixing those two channels together makes for supreme tone. You can get a really large amount of bass out of this head, which is what i was personally looking for. Now, you need to decide what you want to use this head for before you buy it. You will not be able to get any break up (distortion) out of this amp using solely its volume. You would literally go deaf. I have heard that you can pull two of the tubes out in order to make this happen. This being said, this head loves distortion pedals. My Boss MD-2 mega distortion sounds so crisp, its amazing. Odds are, you have a better cab than I do and this head will make either a great start for your first rig, or a happy addition to your collection. When all is said and done, this head is exactly what you think it is. No flashy built in effects, no 5 channel selector switch, no touchy signal break up. Just a good warm sounding head, quality made, for a great price.

Do not think twice! Just BUT IT!!!

By Zage

Comments about Bugera 1960 Classic 150W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

Excellent head! Purchased it with cab and there comes NOTHING close to it! May look like a Marshall, may sound like a Marshall, but CAN even beat Marshall! Put my Stompbox(Cornish-like) in the FX-loop, and away I go!You really get more for the money from this beauty! Worth every penny! Is so good, I even purchased the Classic 1990(; for the Hard/Heavy Rock stuff, this one '1960' for the more Subtle and Instrumental stuff)! Vintage is what it is all about and where it all started, and thanks to Bugera, with their Classic Heads: They made my wish come true! Thank You, Bugera.
