The 333XL is the big brother to Bugera's 333 Series, but with four key additions:

Overall active Presence control

EL34 power tubes for a more compressed, tighter midrange

Noise gate on Lead channel
This is an analog gate that will never close or shut you off in a clean passage. It is frequency selected to decrease high frequency noise and hiss without changing your tone and it works loads better than a lot of competitors™ gates.

XL switch on Crunch and Lead channels
The XL function will add more œchunk to your sound. You can add some thunder to the combo version to more closely emulate a 412 cab, thicken the sound of single-coil pickups or add sustain to single-note melodic passages.

After that, this design is much like the 333 with three fully independent channels: A totally Clean channel that won™t break up, a Crunch channel for a "halfway dirty" rock and blues tone (or crank the gain for a metal rhythm tone), and a Lead channel with the same structure as the Crunch channel but with access to more gain.

This is a closeout model, and does not feature Infinium technology.

  • Hand-built 120-watt amplifier driven by 4 x EL34 valves (convertible to 6L6)
  • Classic 3-channel preamp design (Clean, Crunch, Lead) featuring 4 x 12AX7 valves
  • Integrated high-class reverb with dedicated Reverb control
  • XL switches on the Lead and Crunch channels for absolute killer sounds
  • Independent Equalizer sections for each channel with dedicated Bass, Mid and Treble control
  • Classic Presence control for awesome sound shaping
  • Impedance switch (4, 8 and 16 Ohm) to match virtually any speaker cabinet
  • FX Loop with independent Send and Return level controls also serves as Boost function
  • Heavy-duty footswitch for Channel selection and FX Loop/Boost function included
  • Line output with dedicated Level control

i've owned many amps. marshall jcm's, mesa, crate, peavey and this head for the price cant be beat. yes, a mesa dual rec is a real bad boy and a jcm 900 w/ a ts9 isn't bad either, but this head is not far behind if at all and no pedals. just straight head!!!! to me its a no brainer!!!!! YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED.

Price CANNOT Be Beat!

Comments about Bugera 333XL 120W 3-Channel Tube Guitar Amp Head:

I've always been a big fan of Mesa Rectifiers, but there's no way I was ever gonna afford it. So I went into a heavy research-driven results for price versus quality. And then I stumbled upon this amp. I bought one without playing it in person, and boy was I happy. Out of the box it sounded absolutely gorgeous. While the cleans aren't a Fender clean, for as much power it has the cleans are beautiful. The crunch channel can put out so much gain and distortion it could compete with a few high gain amps itself. The Lead channel is brutal. Scoop the mids and you get a beautiful BFMV-esque sound, push it and you can get a full sounding distortion that competes with amps that cost another thousand dollars. The reverb, while not pedal quality, get's the job done for built-in amp quality. The included noise-gate definitely has a noticeable effect, but as expected doesn't match the quality of a pedal. And it is LOUD. Overall, for the price, this amp can compete with top of the line amps and I would strongly suggest it OVER expensive amps solely for saving so much money.
