Product Description

Bugera Magician Infinium guitar combo amplifier is packed with supernatural power with 85 watts and is built to satisfy even the most discerning tone chaser! The Magician has an unbelievable array of tonal options will take you on a tonal tour of the greatest amplifier personalities to ever emerge from California. Features include three channels, multiple class modes, Varipower, switchable triode/ pentode operation, a multitude of EQ controls, and Bugera's incredible Infinium Valve Life Multiplier technology. The Bugera Magician Infinium is like having a truckload of neo-vintage amps all in one!

Variable Voodoo

It all starts with a three-channel preamp design (Rhythm 1, Rhythm 2, Lead) featuring 4 x 12AX7 valves, producing everything from vintage clean to killer crunch. On the back panel, flick a switch to select Pentode for a clear, powerful punch or Triode for a classic, mellow sound. Next, select either CLASS A mode for a bright, chiming tone that pushes easily into overdrive, or Multi-Class mode to combine the Class A sound with the tight, punchy tone of Class AB amplifiers.

What is Varipower?

There's nothing like the roaring soft-clip sound of saturated power valves, but these tones are normally accessible only when an amp's volume is cranked. Unfortunately, this kind of volume isn't an option when you're jamming away in your apartment at 3:00 am, or if you're gigging in a tiny club. That's why the Magician features the Varipower rotary control, which adjusts output power anywhere from 1 to 85 Watts. This allows the maximum power to be seamlessly scaled down to produce a cranked amp sound at much lower volumes. Whether you're trying to record a searing solo without waking the neighbors, or blowing the roof off the biggest gig of your life, the Magician is always ready to provide the sound of overdriven valve fury.

Equalization Alchemy

The Magician's vast EQ controls put your signature tone well within reach. All three channels feature a three-band EQ (bass, mid, treble), and individual Presence controls to adjust high-end clarity. Meanwhile, a multitude of switches give you access to countless tones: Phat adds mid-range thickness to the Rhythm 2 and Lead channels, Shift affects the feedback loop and midrange sound of the Rhythm 2 and Lead channels, and the Bright switch adds additional brilliance to the Lead channel. A 5-band graphic equalizer rounds out all these tone-shaping options.

Effectively Magic

Your favorite stomp boxes will integrate seamlessly with the Magician via the built-in effects loop. This feature's on/ off status can be stored for each channel and recalled each time the channel is activated. And of course, they didn't forget to include onboard digital reverb. To further enhance performance, the Magician comes with a six-button Bugera FSB106 foot controller for remote on/off switching of Reverb, FX Loop and Graphic EQ, as well as switching between the three preamp channels-which is even possible through the onboard MIDI connections.

On the Outs...

The Magician comes loaded with a Neo-Vintage 12 inch Bugera speaker, handmade in the same factory as the amplifier. This tight transducer provides the tone character of vintage Alnico speakers and an incredible high sensitivity at a mere fraction of the typical guitar speaker's weight. But there are several ways to route the signal whether you're out rocking the clubs or recording in the studio. The Slave DI output sends a signal out to additional amplifiers or other processors, and its Level knob controls the output signal. A Recording output sends a conditioned signal directly to a recording console, and also features a Level knob for controlling the output signal volume.

Infinium Valve Life Multiplier Technology

Bugera's revolutionary Infinium Valve Life Multiplier technology is like having your very own technician inside your amp constantly monitoring and tweaking valve performance for the ultimate in tonal integrity and reliability. This revolutionary circuit not only optimizes the performance of each output tube, it dynamically balances the drive between them to more evenly distribute the load. With Infinium, your tubes last up to 20 times longer, saving you substantial money over the lifespan of your amplifier. Infinium also compensates for the effects of aging, automatically adjusting current levels to keep your valves sounding as good as the day they were installed.

If and when a valve does reach the end of its life, the system even tells you which one to replace. All you need do is replace the faulty valve and let Infinium take care of the rest for you. This all adds up to more consistent sound quality and longer life for your valves. Maintenance for valve amps has never been this easy!
