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
  • Amazing Mode switch to select between Triode or Pentode operation
  • Impedance switch (4, 8 and 16 Ohms) to match virtually any speaker cabinet
  • 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.

I like the fact that the reverb is digital.
Robin Ray
Sounds as good and probably better than a lot of tube amps selling for 2X as much.
The User
The clean channel is sparkling and the dirty channel breaks up very nicely.

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.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Steve Klotz on May 9, 2012
I have been using this amp for 2 years now on stage and in the studio. I typically play 2-3 gigs a week with it. Simply put, it shines. Actually, it outshines my $2000 Mesa Engineering Dual Rectifier by a long shot. The only thing I wish it had (only a little bit) is a recording out function, but it sounds so beautiful it needs to be mic'ed anyway for recording. The clean channel is warm and punchy and full of colorful, warm, rich tones. The gain channel has a unique and beautiful distortion. Although I only use a little bit of gain for my setup, it'll get a ton of growl. At 22 watts, it is perfect for a small stage with drums. Any louder and I want the guitar in the PA. If you're looking for a sparkling, warm clean tone this is as good as I've heard - and cheap too. Awesome!

This amp is awesome for the price and will probably go up in price soon. (that is what happened to the Blackheart, which was $249 a year ago and is now $349) I have been wanting a Tube amp for years and just never got past me having to pay $600 or more. I got this for $349 and it sounds almost as good as the $600 Tube amp. I mean it really sounds great where the clean sings beautifully and the lead channel kicks a??. It came with three additional features that the more expensive tube amp did not have and it is almost half the price. I don't now how I used pedals for distortion all these years... oh yea... I had solid state amps that the distortion just does not compare to this. It breaks up and sounds so nice, words just can't explain it. I hooked my pedal up through the clean and it sounds so digital and not full of life, I just love this amp more than I can say.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Ernie on September 14, 2012
A review is only as good as the reviewer. so here's my background. I live in chronically rural Nova Scotia. It's a 4-hour round-trip from any sort of `big' music store, 7 hours to one that stocks a large variety of products and brands. I do a lot of on-line shopping, and study the on-line player forums and gear reviews demonically before purchasing. For the most part, they've served me well.

I played acoustic guitar for about 40 years, with a couple of long gaps. Ten years ago, arthritis got into the big joint at the base of my thumbs. [My first guitar, a Martin 00-18C, had a classical neck and nylon strings, so I learned to play with my thumb on the neck.] Four years ago, it got bad enough that I bought my first electric guitar. Less strain on the thumb, with the proper set up. I'm a pretty `dainty' player, so I can get away with action that would dive most players up the wall.

Since then, the herd has increased to four six-string guitars, one acoustic-electric bass (and bass amp), and two guitar amplifiers...three, counting the new V22. For the most part, my guitars are played for my pleasure. They earn me pin money but, so far, don't pay for themselves. So, that was the main reason the Bugera V-22 caught my attention. It was a tube amp I could justify the price of.

I play, and sing, mostly folk, pop, a bit of blues, and some folk-rock music. No classic rock, punk, or metal...of any weight. I keep the Clean channel as clean as I can, with the treble knob on 3. Channel 2 is set with the Boost on and just enough gain to give a hint of distortion. All I need.

So, I really have little to say about the amp's maximum distortion characteristics.
