Overview

The gain structure and tone character of the 6262 is built on the same fundamentals as the 6260 but more midrange, making them perfect for '80s rock and metal. You also get full control of EQ, Presence and Reverb on both channels.

A lot of amp manufacturers call their Treble/Mid/Bass knobs œtone controls. Bugera calls theirs "EQ" because they spent a lot of time making sure that they each have a unique character. Treble really screams; Mid puts you about six rows into the audience; Low can add more growl than an angry Kodiak bear.

The Presence control is tailored to smooth out your tone or add enough bite to cut through any cymbal. It can bring new life to darker sounding instruments.

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

Features
  • Hand-built 120-Watt amplifier driven by 4 x 6L6 valves (convertible to EL34)
  • Classic 2-channel preamp design (Clean, Crunch, Lead) featuring 6 x 12AX7 tubes
  • Integrated high-class reverb with dedicated Reverb control for each channel
  • Independent Equalizer sections for each channel with dedicated Bass, Mid and Treble controls
  • Classic Presence control per channel for awesome sound shaping
  • Impedance switch (4, 8 and 16 Ohm) to match virtually any speaker cabinet
  • Heavy-duty footswitch for Channel selection and FX Loop function included

Got the "non" infinium close-out model, maybe the last one from MF, at an unreal price......and I'm glad I got a non infinium model as well with all the first run bug issues out of the way.
First, for anyone wondering.....this amp, The 6262, sounds fantastic and is perfect for classic rock, Hendrix, Zeppelin & the infamous "Brown Sound" all the way into the Seattle sound.
Second, I have not changed out the stock tubes yet BTW & I cannot believe the sound of this amp stock, new out of the box. You absolutely cannot get this tone or power for this amount of money anywhere.
So don't listen to the people on the net (your lose if you do) especially the snobs that talk down about Bugera today about some issues they had with their first run of amps...HOW MANY YEARS AGO WAS THAT GUYS??????
Bugera is not the only musical instrumant maker out there that has had a bad first run....GET OVER IT!....Bugera has.
I did order Svetlana E34s, Mullard 12AX7 preamp tubes and a Magnetic Components Clone Tone OP transformer to get me a little closer to the tone I am looking for but I assure you that this amp is jammin & rock solid out of the box.
I would like to thank Gear Head Joe for making sure I would not be disappointed with my purchase....great salesmen.

Mine sounded good until it had the arching problem with the cheap connectors and went dead. Expensive to send for warranty repair. I found a website for people who were having the connector arching problem, snipped the connector and hard wired the connection. Working again but now no warranty I am waiting for the next cheap component to break. Better to step up to the Peavey that this one is a copy if there is any way you can afford to do it. A non-functional amp is no bargin.

    Can't hardly get just the tubes for this price! This was the first Bugera head of now two amps. I got just for the price but it turns out to be a gigging amp.

      Comments about Bugera 6262 120W 2-Channel Tube Guitar Amp Head:

      Picked this up to give it a try primarily because of the cost and the fact that I didn't have a high gain head. I have many amps of differing types. Initial impression so far if a great high gain channel with an average or less clean channel. I have about 5 hours playing time on it including a 3 hour straight gig without any issues. I'd read about every article and blog about Bugera including this amp, and in fact in had sent a previous Bugera back that had problems. Not this model tho. I'd read about a faulty power connector so checked that out before in even turned it on and found that it had the factory fix. Tubes that come in these amps are always 'questionable' based on what you read on the internet and maybe they are. I am kind of a tube snob and I have quite a number of known good high quality the that I could exchange in this amp but it honestly sounded dang good so why? Still hard to believe I picked this up for the price. Would I have picked it up for twice what I paid? Probably, three times? Maybe. Will it be highly reliable and last 30 years like some amps that cost 10x as much, who cares?!

        Bottom line: It's a great sounding amp. Gain for miles. But you do get what you pay for. Don't buy one at full price. It's made really cheap. My new one came with rusted out pins in the footswitch and the footswitch input on the jack itself was completely corroded. In my case I just have to live without a footswitch untill I can rig something. But I've read of people having these blow on first use and I believe it because it's a total copy of a better product. And it's meant to be cheap. As long as you get a good price it's worth it. I got mine on clearance for twotwentynine. Anymore than that and I'd be mad.

          I love this amp. I have also owned Peaveys, Marshalls, and HiWatts and this is my favorite one I have ever had. It is nice and loud and it has a lot of head room, but on the lead channel you can still keep the volume down around 1 and not just be blown away, but it will certainly blow you away if that is what you want. Very impressed with how versatile this thing is, Bugera has really done a nice job with this amp.

          Comments about Bugera 6262 120W 2-Channel Tube Guitar Amp Head:

          Well, I'll get right to the point, I hate writing reviews, but this one deserves one. Bottom line, this head is worth every penny. I don't work for Bugera, but I do own two of these heads and they are in my opinion better than much of the competition that is out there. I would like to state a couple facts right off the bat... Bugera is owned by Behringer and Behringer is a huge company that makes amazing products at a great value. Second, the electronics in this head are awesome and the channel switching is smooth and quick. I am so tired of hearing how this head is a clone or a "cabon-copy," version of the peaveys. Is there similarities, of course, but the Bugera is rightfully its own head. If you really want to go there, the 6505 should have been named the Soldano 5150 because the 5150 now the 6505 is a clone to the Soldano SLO 100 with a few tweaks. Peavey had gotten sued by Marshall because the Valveking is a clone to the JCM 800. So lets know our facts before we start casting stones at Bugera... Also any problems that these head had with plastic clips and tube issues has long been resolved, therefore, reliability is not an issue and quality control is top notch. Great amp!!!

          Comments about Bugera 6262 120W 2-Channel Tube Guitar Amp Head:

          I love my Bugera. Only downside is the clean channel has a small amount of gain to it. The reason I kept it as a 5 star rating is because the amp they modelled this 6262 off of also has the same gain on their clean channel. So it's a perfect clone. This amp has beautiful tone. Couldn't be happier and this is my 2nd Bugera. I also own a 333XL.

          Comments about Bugera 6262 120W 2-Channel Tube Guitar Amp Head:

          I was another one of the folks who bought the amp when it was advertised as the infinium and was pretty upset that I received a non-infinium version. I had bought both the 6262 and the 333 under that assumption, but had a feeling when the descriptions changed, we were in trouble.

          That aside though, the amp does sound good, and I think it will be reliable, BUT you want to AT LEAST pull the back grill off and take a peek at the bias adjustment knob. Like I said, I got the 333 as well, the thing was, the knob on that one was turned completely to the left, the 6262 was turned completely to the right, both on the 6L6 setting. That was definitely a red flag for me not to use the amps yet & dig a little deeper. I have only been able to use the factory test point with a multimeter thus far, but if I had left the 6262 cranked all the way to the right I'm pretty sure it would have burnt the stock tubes up in a hurry. From what I found on the web, the factory test point isn't the best way to measure, so I also ordered a bias probe and will be double checking it with that before I really play around with the amp for extended periods of time.

          I'm guessing a lot of the people who have issues with reliability are assuming that they set the bias properly at the factory, which is unfortunately just not the case judging from the 6262 being cranked all the way to the right. If it had been the self-biasing infinium like it was supposed to be it wouldn't be a problem, but the price was good, so rather than get too butthurt about it, I'm just hoping I can help save a few others in the same situation some pain.

          If you know how to set the bias, you can probably do it yourself, if not, please have someone who does check it out for you. The 333 was pretty close to being alright (judging by the test point anyways) cranked all the way to the left, so that one would have been OK, but the 6262 could have ended in blown tubes or worse, so I read up on it and checked mine. Please do the same if you got one of these and haven't already. It sounds good, and is a great deal, just make sure you do a little legwork to assure everything checks out.

            First off I already have 1960 infinium.. I recently pickup up this (6262)as a combo 2X12 for a insanely low closeout price (non-infinium).. I immediately swapped out the speakers to 75watt G-12 Celestion speakers I got for cheap..

            This thing is awesome.. I play mainly blues and hard rock.. I really like the bias selector and have tried both EL34 and 6L6.. I currently pull the two inner tubes and run EL34s dropping output to 60watts.. If you do this make sure you change the imp on your amp speaker to half normal ohms..

            I hook this up to a 1960A 4X12 Marshall Cab and the amp just sings.. The onboard overdrive (crunch) is great.. I also have the 1990 120watt head on the way.. But I think I currently perfer this to my 1960 infinium..
