Product Description

Valves can be mined for an enormous palette of tones, but most amps leave you with just a Master Volume dial and one choice of valves, making it all but impossible to experience these varieties at anything less than titanic volumes. Enter the Bugera TRIREC Infinium-this all-valve tone buffet features a Varipower dial that scales output power from 1 to 100 Watts, giving you sweet power tube saturation at apartment-friendly volumes. Feel like experiencing a power valve variety besides 6L6? Infinium Valve Life Multiplier technology not only extends the lifespan of your output valves, it allows you to run all 6L6s, 6550s, EL34s, or you can mix any combination of the above to create your own signature tone. The TRIREC also gives you three preamp channels, each with a wide array of sonic options, internal reverb, an adjustable and remote switchable boost, an FX loop, and three rectifier modes to choose from (valve, silicon diode, valve and silicon diode).

Hear the Bugera TRIREC Infinium in action!


Tri-What?

Rectifiers convert alternating current (AC) to direct current (DC), giving your guitar amp the power it needs to rock. Most of today's amps feature solid-state rectifiers, which have high power output and tight bass response. But many guitarists prefer valve-based rectifiers, which are known for their "sag" effect - this basically means when you slam a chord, it doesn't reach its full volume right away, but instead makes a tough initial impact before quickly blossoming into a classic rock ultimatum. With the Bugera TRIREC, both breeds of rectifier are alive and well in the same amp. You can even use them at the same time! Choose Silicon Diodes for high power and tight bass, Valves (2 x 5U4 valves) for lower power and the almighty "sag," or a combination of the two called Valves & Diodes for medium-powered operation spiked with equal parts punch and vintage grace.

Good Things Come In Threes

Three is a recurring number when it comes to the awesome features of the TRIREC. There are three preamp channels, each with three-band EQ, Presence, Volume and Gain controls. Channel 1 gives you pristine cleans and a Drive setting for a dynamic crunch tone. Channels 2 and 3 give you three overdrive modes: Classic for blues and classic rock sounds, Vintage for more gain for hard rock, and Modern for pure, maniacal metal. Five 12AX7 valves give the TRIREC's preamp stage the mojo to cover this vast tonal palette. The output stage contains 4 x 6L6 valves (convertible to 4 x EL34 valves-not included).

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 TRIREC features the Varipower rotary control, which adjusts output power anywhere from 1 to 100 Watts. 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 TRIREC is always ready to provide the sound of overdriven valve fury.

The Back Story

The TRIREC's incredible tonal variations make it a recording studio gem, but it's got the features that make it equally amazing on stage. The back panel features a Line Out jack with dedicated Level knob for sending signal to a slave amp, as well as Loudspeaker jacks with switchable impedance (16, 8 or 4 Ohms), making this amplifier compatible with virtually any speaker cabinet. The built-in FX Loop has controls for adjusting the output (send) and return levels separately. The associated Assign knob has four states: FX loop is always on, has an individual status per channel, is activated via footswitch, or is deactivated. You also get six External Switching jacks that allow channel switching, Boost, Reverb and FX Loop to be controlled by an external switching system. This is where you'll find the input for the FSB106A footswitch, which also controls these parameters, and offers a MIDI In /Thru connection.

"Bugera TriRec lives up to the hype"
Overall: I had been reading and watching web videos about this amp since 2010 and thought it would never actually be released. But when they finally became available around 8/13 I was first to order one. I have to say that is amp actually lives up to all the hype that surrounded it prior to its release. Straight out of the box this thing kicks major buttox. That unique mesa-like distortion tone is unmistakably there on channels 2 & 3. By far my favorite feature of this amp is the "Varipower" knob that adjust the power tubes output from the full 100+ watts down to about 5 watts. I prefer to keep the knob around what I approximate to be 25 watts in my home studio. This way you get some power tube distortion but still have enough power to let the full bass response of the amp come through. All of the eleven tubes in the amp are Chinese made and are all of high quality. This includes 5 12AX7s, 4 6L6GCs, and the 2 big 5U4 rectifier tubes. I usually like to play with the tone by switching out both preamp and power tubes. But with this amp it sounds so good out of the box I have no desire to do that, at least for now. I really love the sound of this amp for heavy palm muted rhythm guitar riffs. It has that wicked mesa-like voicing in the lower midrange I don't get with any of my other amps. The build quality is good for a Chinese made amp. I have had no issues with it in the few months I've had it and don't anticipate any. But I feel good knowing that it does include a 3 year warranty from Bugera. The tolex that covers the amp is thick with a nice grain pattern and a real leather handle. The amp is also has very low hiss even at high distortion levels which is great for players that don't use a noise gate. I own several other 100 watt guitar amp heads. Some that cost 3 times what this amp cost, but this has become my favorite and main amp. I am actually looking to sell off a few of those other amps because this amp can do what they do and more. Thanks to the Modern, Classic, Vintage switches on the 2 dirty channels I can get most any distortion tone required. This amp is everything I expected it to be and I'm very satisfied with the purchase of this amp.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Bugera Hit this one OUT OF THE PARK!"
Overall: Just bought this amp and after buying new cords (amp to cabinet, pedal board, etc.) this amp is a BEAST! I sold my Mesa (mini rectifier) to buy something I could play out with and this amp is MORE than enough. The mesa had a lot of hum everytime I kicked on the gain channel, but not so with the Bugera Trirec. We all know cords are important and GOOD cords are a MUST with this amp, but you don't have to pay hundreds for new cords, just buy a set of good quality cords (and jumper for your pedal board) and you will LOVE THIS AMP! I play a lot of different types of music and haven't found one yet this amp can't handle. Now I haven't had it long, but so far, I'm a very happy camper. And the folks at zZounds have been VERY helpful (call and ask for Matt, he was excellent!). Bottom line is I would definitely recommend Zzounds and the Bugera Trirec Infinium. Thanks Zzounds! I'll be back!
