Bugera BTX36000 The Nuke Bass Amp Head

Bugera named it "The Nuke" for a good reason -- with 3,600 Watts in bridged mode and 2 x 1,800 when run in stereo or bi-amped mode, this bad boy is the most powerful bass amp in the world!

But The Nuke isn't just about power, thanks to its staggering array of tone-sculpting options, including 3-band EQ with sweepable mids, Ultra-High, Ultra-Low and Bright switches, and a 9-band graphic EQ.

A built-in adjustable Compressor and switchable Limiter ensure distortion-free performance. And if bi-amping is your thing, you'll love the onboard Crossover with Balance control. The Nuke even provides XLR and 1/4-inch outputs to send the bi-amped signal to the front of house.

Need even more features? How about two Insert Channels with Preamp Out and Power Amp In connections? How about a footswitchable stereo Effects Loop? They even provide the footswitch, which pulls double-duty for FX and the graphic EQ.

Features
- Extremely powerful 3,600-Watt true bi-amping stereo bass amplifier

- Flexible 2 x 1,800-Watt stereo or 3,600-Watt bridged mode

- Integrated Crossover with dedicated Frequency and Balance controls for bi-amping operation

- Active, musical 9-band graphic EQ for total sound control

- Dedicated Bass, Mid, Treble and additional Mid frequency control enable ultimate sound shaping

- Switchable Ultra-Low and Ultra-High processing for ultimate tone

- Integrated Compressor increases sustain and smoothes out volume peaks when playing dynamic slaps

- Bright function for brilliant sound enhancement, even with heavy compression

- Balanced DI outputs with pre/post routing for direct connection to your mixing console

- Tuner outputs on front and rear panel

- Stereo Effects loop for external effects devices (stomp boxes, rack effects, etc.)

- Dual footswitch for graphic EQ and Effects loop included

- Independent DC and thermal overload protection on each channel automatically protects amplifier and speakers

- High-quality components and exceptionally rugged construction ensure long life

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (12 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Bugera Nuke dont believe the negatives till YOU test it out~!"
Overall: Ive read things like it blew breakers in peepls house (better that than have a low voltage burn out of yer transfomer [been there done that...] Dont matter what amp you own if you get loud yer gonna pull amps. I always put this guy on a seperate circuit than anything else and it has yet to brown or trip any breaker. Has tons of features (truly versatile as h3ll!). negative: lacks heaphone output but u can get around that only u hear in one ear../ heavy as an armored truck/ thats the only 2 things i can say bad about it. where ANY Bass amp (or preamp for that matter/ onboard that is) Ive only seen mid-switch of 250/600 k this thing has 5 shifts of mid 250-3000k!/ 9 band EQ and yes the EQ is REAL you can hear/feel every slight of hand that you shift a band. Main thing is I got this at some stupid markdown or closeout at Amazon for only 256.00$ delivered! Thats right! at that price i couldnt refuse it and i wish i would have bought 2 of them! That said if it delivers 3000 (true in ther regards of how most peepl view watts as if they were a reliable reference to decibels....) no way..BUT..you rig up 3 cabinets and run 2 ohms I will promise you there will not be a window or anything in your house not nailed or glued down that wont vibrate like Sybil (Exorcist) on steroids has brought yer house down. Bottom line kids...it Do Deliver! Just use common sense and reference material if you need when hooking this guy up and play by the rules and you will not be unhappy---well you may get a hernia toting it around w/o a rack on wheels but otherwise you be happy :D

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "I love this amp."
Sound: This amp has precisely the tone I was looking for. I have an SVT4 which is the Ampeg sister amp, they have a lot of similarities but The Nuke has more power and clearer tone. I love the sounds I can make with it and my basses. The clarity is perfect. Feature: I think it could go for some better overdrive. The EQs are great for switching up tones quickly. Foot Switch is a life saver at gigs where you can't readily access your amp. Ease of Use: Stupid easy. Quality: It's sweet looking, I have modified my chassis and the base but the knobs and pieces are all sturdy and have lasted. Value: This amount of tone and volume for this price is just ridiculous. Manufacturer Support: I haven't had any problems. The Wow Factor: Who doesn't want a 3600w head? "The Nuke" branding is cool but not gaudy. Overall nice looking amp. Overall: This is the amp for a bassist looking for a easily modulated yet clean tone. Sounds great on both active and passive pickups. I love this amp.

What Our Customers Are Saying About zZounds "zZounds.com is a music store for musicians run by musicians who understand the needs of the working player or the hobbyist. zZounds carries most of the products that larger, more well-known online stores carry. And if they don't carry it, they have often gone the extra mile by trying to find an item for me from another source. They are honest and helpful when I need help, and I received credit from them that other music stores would not grant me." - customer on December 22

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.

Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
