Product Description

BUGERA V22

Boutique-Style 22-Watt Vintage 2-Channel Valve Combo with Reverb

  • Hand-built 22-Watt guitar combo driven by 2 x EL84 valves
  • Way cool vintage look and feel
  • Original heavy-duty 12quot; BUGERA guitar speaker for true vintage sound
  • Authentic 2-channel preamp design from the '60s featuring 3 x 12AX7 valves - everything from purring blues to mind-blowing crunch
  • Integrated high-class reverb with dedicated Reverb control
  • Vintage Equalizer section with dedicated Bass, Mid, Treble and Presence controls
  • Normal and Bright inputs for ultimate sound character to perfectly match your guitar
  • Multi-gain stage Lead channel with Pre, Post gain and Master controls

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

A lot has changed since the 1960s, but the guitar tones created in those pre-moon landing days still stand up to the test of time. The V22 is a stunning 1 x 12" combo that not only exudes vintage sound, but also possesses modern features that will launch your tone into the sonic stratosphere.

Ideal for practice, home recording, and even small club gigs, this loud lad channels its output through two EL84 valves, providing the bratty, breakup-prone power tube compression that 6L6GC-equipped amps typically only achieve at extreme volume levels.

The V22's sound begins with a two-channel (Clean and Lead) preamp. Tone-sculpting options abound, including an onboard 3-band EQ (Bass, Mid, Treble) with Presence control and Mid Boost. The preamp's three 12AX7 tubes ooze warmth, creating vintage and modern tones that range from clean to dignified blues to garage-leveling madness.

By S. Hawkins on August 25, 2009
I work for a guitar store and am a bit of a gear snob so when i heard about the new Bugera line i was skepitcal. the day a single V22 arrived at our store i opened the box and was taken aback at how good the amp looked. i plugged it in, grabbed my favorite Tele and was blown away by the tone! after about 10 minutes of playing with this amp i placed it back in the box and bought it. I'm not the biggest fan of the triode tone though for someone i'm sure it's perfect. triode defintaley sounds better with the dirty channel and gives you that 60's garage rock tone. but in full pentode mode the amp really sings. for reference, i play clean instemental style, sufy, spaghetti westerny type stuff. the dirty channel is good but for for serious shredders this amp probably lacks the gain you would want but that's why they make pedals right? it's also doubtful that 22 watts would turn to many shredders on any how but it's plenty loud for most 100-200 people venues i play. there is a line out when i need to use it in bigger venues and an effects loop that is clean and noise free. though i like my spring verb tank, the digital reverb sounds great and is foot switchable with the included foot switch. for the price tag, this amp rivals many more expensive amps. i tried it back to back with a Fender vibrolux and the Bugera won by a mile. time will tell how durable it is but so far, it's my new favorite amp.

I'm surprised it's taken me this long to write about this amp - I guess I've been too busy having mega much fun with it. I bought it about 3 months ago. I play it here in my apartment. I drag it over to our band's practice space and jam with it there. We (MOON recorded our 6-song EP (The Moon EP) with it. I've schlepped it to several venues both indoor and out and have even loaned it out to other bands on the same bill. This amp is a workhorse. It's been holding up well. There is still not one single problem with it. Switches work fine. Buttons engage like they're supposed to. All connections are without static, hum, or buzz.

Tube amps "speak" for themselves. Sorry, solid state. No matter how hard the manufacturers try to create "tube-sounding" electronics there is just no comparison to the liveliness, character, depth, and tone you achieve from a tube amp. And what makes this baby extra special is the fact it's a dual channel amp - clean & dirty can be activated, as well as reverb, by a heavy-duty footswitch. It also boasts an effects loop. Rare for an amp in this price range. I like the fact that the reverb is digital. True, there's nothing like an authentic "springy" reverb. I've used them before in Westbury amps, etc. But that "spring" ringing has an "aftersound" like a trail that can be unwanted at times; also spring reverbs require another vacuum tube circuit which makes them prone to burn out. This reverb is absolutely clear and rich - as if someone slapped a Lexicon unit in it.

The look of the amp itself screams vintage. Other guitarists are fooled by it and think it's a $2000 boutique amp. Well, it IS a boutique amp - it just doesn't cost $2000. There's something to be said about an amp that sports controls for bass, mid, mid boost, treble, and presence.

Verified Purchase
I was a little skeptical about this amp because its made in China and it's the first guitar amp I purchased where I did not try it out before buying. But after doing some research - watching demo videos and reading user reviews - I decided to take a chance.

For the record, I'm playing a 2001 MIM Strat with one Seymour Duncan pup. Not sure about the pup because the guitar was given to me and I haven't had a chance to take it apart yet and see what's under the hood. I suspect it's the Jeff Beck model.

Anyway, this is an all-tube amp and for the price you'll be hard-pressed to find something as good. Having said that, the amp does have its negative points.

Like other 2-channel tube amps in this price range, you get one set of tone controls that function for both channels. Which means, a tone setting that sounds good on the clean channel probably won't work for the overdrive channel, and vice versa. I managed to come up with a compromise that doesn't sound too bad using a DigiTech Bad Monkey overdrive pedal.

The other issue is that the overdrive channel has a lot of high end. That's okay if that's what you're looking for but I like a beefier sound, especially for leads. There's a boost switch on the OD channel but that just adds to the shrillness so I don't use it at all. Again, this is probably a matter of personal taste.

A nice feature of this amp is the effects loop which you normally don't find in amps at this price point. The amp also comes with a footswitch for channel switching and reverb. The switch seems to be well-made.

I haven't had a chance to play with a band yet so I don't know how the amp will respond when cranked up. But it sounds pretty good for low-volume bedroom practice.

I've played mine for over a year now and have been playing for 7 years total. Over all it is a pretty nice first tube amp or tube practice amp for the money but i do have a few problems with it:
First of all after only about a month the tubes went bad in it, not just one though, 3 went bad at the same time. not a huge deal though because after a while tubes need changing like strings. I changed them but to get the tube cage off you have to take off the back plate, remove the speaker, and unscrew several small screws at odd angles. not a huge problem just annoying.
Second is the drive channel. It has a nice amount of gain but lacks in clarity. the amp is basically a fender deluxe reverb clone so it has a very fendery drive that works great for old school blues but not much else.
however, there are several things i do like. it has a great reverb that sounds very real even though its not a real tank reverb on it. its has plenty of clean volume and can easily stay clean and keep up with a band. it isnt too loud though, works great as a quiet practice amp. lastly the clean channel is stellar. very punchy but not overly bass heavy and has good clarity. the amp takes pedal very well on this channel but not the dirty. the eq section is pretty good as well. doesnt leave you wanting more but can be a tad restricting at times.
Overall it is a killer amp for the price especially if you like to use drive pedals.
