Bugera V55INFINIUM Tube Guitar Combo

Building on the original and inspired V55 amp design, the impressively full-featured and hand-built, 55-Watt, 2-Channel VINTAGE V55 INFINIUM tube combo amplifier not only exudes vintage sound and style, but possesses modern features that will launch your tone into the sonic stratosphere. Loaded with 3 x 12AX7 preamp and 2 x 6L6 power tubes, this incredible boutique-style powerhouse gives you the flexibility of two independent channels and selectable reverb, both switchable via the included heavy-duty footswitch. Add to this the revolutionary INFINIUM Tube Life Multiplier Technology and amazing 12" TURBOSOUND speaker, and the VINTAGE V55 INFINIUM becomes one extraordinarily versatile tone-machine that is ideally-suited for the studio, stage, practice room and concert hall!

Classic All-Tube Design

The VINTAGE V55 INFINIUM features true Class-A technology with a 3 x 12AX7 front-end and 2 x 6L6 tube power stage. A masterfully crafted all-tube combo amplifier, the V55 provides sweetly-balanced harmonics and natural tube compression, resulting in the warm distortion and break-up you've come to appreciate from those treasured vintage amplifiers of yesteryear. The hand-selected 12AX7 preamp tubes in VINTAGE V55 INFINIUM's classic '60s-era preamp provide everything from sweetly-purring blues to mind-blowing crunch. The mighty 6L6 power tube is known for its crisp and driving tonal quality when pushed to the max, and the V55 harnesses every last ounce of that power to awesome effect.

INFINIUM Tube Life Multiplier Technology

Years in the making, INFINIUM Tube Life Multiplier Technology can extend the usable lifespan of your amplifier's expensive power tubes by up to 20 times, saving you huge money and ensuring the integrity of your tone. How? This revolutionary circuit automatically and continuously monitors the performance of each output tube, and dynamically drives it towards the target operating point, for an evenly distributed load.
INFINIUM also compensates for the effects of aging, automatically adjusting current levels to keep your tubes sounding as good as new -- even when AC line voltages drop below nominal levels. Similar technology has been used for decades in all-wheel drive cars, where systems modulate the power going to each wheel to improve traction. Just consider INFINIUM Series amps "4-wheel drive" for your guitar.

TURBOSOUND - The Sound Difference

A world-leading British designer and manufacturer of professional loudspeaker systems, TURBOSOUND has been building cutting-edge speakers for more than 30 years, and won the venerable Queen's Award for Innovation numerous times for their highly acclaimed loudspeaker designs. You will find TURBOSOUND's distinguished products not only touring with the best-known international artists, but also in countless major venues worldwide.

High-Definition Reverb

Adding to its impressive list of tone-shaping options, the VINTAGE V55's high-definition Reverb puts the perfect finishing touch to your signature sound. Adjustable via the dedicated control on the front panel, you can finally achieve any sound you desire -- from a subtle touch to the cavernous, natural-sounding reverberation of a large arena.

Own the Tone

The VINTAGE V55 INFINIUM's amazing tone-palette begins with its footswitchable, 2-channel (Clean and Lead) preamp. Tone-sculpting options abound, including an onboard 3-band Vintage EQ section (Bass, Mid, Treble) with Presence control. Normal and Bright inputs provide superb matching to your instrument's tonal characteristics.

Expandable

The output impedance selector allows you to match any external 4, 8 or 16-Ohm speaker setup. Plus, thanks to the V55's Mode switch, which selects between Triode and Pentode operation, you can instantly jump from sweet and warm to massively raucous high-gain edge.

Footswitch Included

You have all the tools you need, right out of the box! Included is a heavy-duty footswitch for channel and reverb selection to give you easy and convenient control of your tone, right from your pedalboard -- allowing your focus to remain on your performance.

Made to Last

Long life and impressive durability are ensured, thanks to the high-quality components and exceptionally-rugged construction found throughout. Designed and engineered by BUGERA Germany, the hand-built, 22-Watt, 2-Channel V55 INFINIUM comes loaded with a trio of 12AX7 preamp and dual EL84 power tubes; an amazing 12" speaker from world-famous TURBOSOUND; 2 independent channels; Reverb; dual-function, heavy-duty footswitch -- and plethora of awesome signal-shaping options.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Wow"
Overall: I was a little hesitant to buy this amp, despite hearing how great it sounds on all the Youtube reviews and videos. Mainly I was concerned about reliability, having read all the hate and bashing of Bugera from several years ago (and that may be justified, I honestly don't know). But in the end, 450 bucks for a 55 watt tube amp, that sounds like this, with the features this has, and a footswitch thrown in, persuaded me to take the chance. I figured WORST case I'm out 450 bucks for nothing. All I can say after having it for almost 2 weeks so far is, wow, I'm glad I took the chance. The ONLY question in my mind is will it hold up over the long haul. If it does, it deserves 10 out of 10. First the tone, which is why I bought it. It is every bit as good as you hear in the reviews. However, I bought JJ tubes and replaced the Chinese made Bugera tubes that came in it, and I could immediately hear a big difference. It is as if that woke it up and it sounds a lot richer with JJs in it. And I can't say it sounded bad with Bugera tubes, it just sounds way better with JJs to my ears. Lots of headroom for smooth as glass, then when you nail it, you can hear that tube breakup. As good as some solid states are, I haven't heard one yet that can totally do that as well as a real tube amp (maybe I just haven't heard the right one). Suffice it to say you can go from perfectly clean to really overdriven breakup and anything in between. Includes the footswitch, which allows you to turn reverb on and off, and switch channels (clean/high gain) with it. Has reverb. I haven't used it too much yet. I liked that it's hard wired (even if by some 9 year old Chinese kid). I get no noise no hiss no rattles no weird noises that should not be there with mine. The solid state I had previously had some hiss this amp does not. As far as looks, it looks great to me. A bit vintage with modern kicked in, the colors and presentation look good to my eyes. If I were to pick at anything, it would be of course made in China, but if it were made in the US it would be 3 times the price at least. And the Chinese stock tubes are terrific in my book. But to get a full complement of JJs cost me about 67 bucks. Hopefully with the Infinium setup they will last a while. I didn't have to worry about biasing the tubes just put them in. And that is easy to do, however you have to remove the metal cage from over them, and they put a bunch of screws (way more than is needed) around that and some are not exactly easy or fun to reach. I found it easiest to turn it upside down for getting that off so the screws didn't come flying down. Going forward I probably won't need to do that. In short, to sum up, this does everything I was hoping. It has not disappointed me in any way and if it holds up, it earns a 10 out of 10 rating from me.
