Product Description

The BVP5500 begins with two selected pairs of 12AX7 preamp valves with their own Drive-control. Suhweet! When you want to rock the house you need serious power. The BVP5500 brings 550 of the cleanest fan-cooled watts you'll ever hear -- or feel. And since bass players do not live by Watts alone, the BVP5500 is equipped with a stunning arsenal of tone-sculpting tools, including a 3-band EQ with sweepable mids, Ultra-High and Ultra-Low switches, and a 9-band graphic EQ for the ultimate in tone control.

For you non-purists, there is an Effects Loop and an Insert Channel with Preamp Out and Power Amp In connections for expanded versatility. Use the included footswitch to kill the signal to the amp, allowing you to tune in blissful silence and to activate/deactivate the graphic EQ.
Be gentle. This kind of power can go to your head!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Bugera , Bugera, Bugera"
Overall: Man I love this amp. It pumps pure bass and the tones are so warm and can be changed to whatever you like. The EQ is awesome of course. The amp is a bit on the heavy side but I guess you pay for durability right. Love it though.I definitely recommend.

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. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. 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.
