    Default Bugera V22 anybody?

    Anybody test drive one of these? I've been thinking about getting a small tube amp and this looks interesting:

    How "small" of a tube amp Jerry? And do you have a price point? Certain features that are absolutely necessary?

    Small for playing at home, rehearsals and small venues (bar/restaurant). Single speaker, light weight and around/under $500.

    Buy one of those Epiphone valve Jr. amps for the money and the sound you can't go wrong. You can go to Ebay and find a modded one at a decent price and there a some nice mods out there also. Just my 2cents.

    Have you considered a Blues Jr. or a Traynor YCV-20? Those seem to meet your requirements and can be had (used) at your price. I really like my YCV-20WR and Gary feels the same about his YCV-20. I'm just sayin' ...

    Funny you should say that. I've been checking out the latest version of the Blues Junior as well. It looks like a better option that the Bugera. I'll look into the Traynor, as well.

    Thanks...

    Thanks.

    Yes, I've seen both of those YT vids along with a bunch of others for the Bugera, Blues Junior (in several variations), Peavey, Traynor and a couple of other amps. I've been slogging through YouTube this weekend. In the midst of this GAS attack, I received a sign from God yesterday in the form of a letter from a law firm in Mobile, AL. It seems that the company that laid me off in October 2008, pulled a legal no-no and I am part of a class action suit which may net me a couple of grand by October. What a great country!!

    So my search will be picking up steam. So far from what I've heard I'm leaning towards a Blues Junior, but I will have to do some field testing before I pull the trigger on anything.

    How about Carvin? They make a series of Tweed style amps that get great reviews. I think they are so under rated and never seem to get to get the press they deserve. I also liked the Epie valve Jr Idea aside from The Jr they make a small all tube combo that has digital effects built in. I have never plugged into a Jr but they seem to be very popular and there are all kinds of D.I.Y. Mods out there for them.
