Product Description

Bugera 1960 Classic Valve Guitar Amplifier Head; A raw interpretation of classic British Bite!
The people at Bugera have been searching high and low, listening to obscure, long-departed British amp designs spending most of last year tweaking to get hand-selected EL34s and ECC83s to play nice together. With the addition of a no-compromise non-master volume for direct signal path and a huge output transformer with specially nested windings they’ve uncovered the formula for a powerful British amplifier with increased dynamic response and clarity.

Bugera 1960 Features

  • Hand-built 150-Watt hi-gain amplifier driven by 4 x EL34 valves
  • Vintage 60's preamp design with 3 x ECC83 valves for terrifying punch and mind-blowing gain
  • 4 input connectors link channels 1 and 2 via patch cable to mix the tonal characters for ultimate tone
  • Vintage Equalizer section with dedicated Bass, Mid, Treble and Presence controls
  • Impedance switch (4, 8 and 16 Ohms) to match virtually any speaker cabinet
  • FX Loop with dedicated Level switch and true Bypass function
  • High-quality components and exceptionally rugged construction ensure long life

bugera 1960 is awsome.
Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
This thing is very sturdy and heavy.overall regardless of what you have heard about bugera in the past they are great sounding and reliable amps. People are jealous that you can get a great tone at a third or half the price. Other companies and their followers are trying hard to snub bugera here in the states. But the only ones paying the price is us the consumer. If you want a great reliable amp buy a bugera. And they respond to your emails occationally unlike the american or japenese companies I've dealt with.
Reliability
How has it stood up over time?
Bugera had some reliability issues prior to summer of 2009. They have since fixed all the issues. The only things you may want to do is buy a bias tool and upgrade to some jj el34 tubes or some kt77 or 6ca7 tubes all will work for this unit. If you do have any future problems I know from others that bugera fixes the problems and gets your amp or a new one in a week or less.
General
Your general opinion of this product.
I love my 1960. There's so much you can do with this amp.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Like I said this thing is a Swiss army knife. Just add your favorite pedals you won't get any natural gain from this amp unless its cranked. This amp has no master gain so I bought a attenuater like item called the volume box that patches into the effects loop and allows you to turn up the tube gain without blasting you out. Its 20 bucks on the internet auction sites.
Tone
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Tone wise this is very marshall sounding but has the ability to get some peavey style lows when you jump the channels. You will really hear your pick attack no matter how you set it. If you want the evh brown sound throw some 6ca7 tubes for a tight low end more head room and more of a slightly scooped mid tone.like I said this amp has a lot of possibilities.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
Looks awesome real classic looking amp.
Action
How was the action out of the box?
Played great out of the box. The highs chime. I use very little highs in the eq because I jump the channels with a patch cord to blend the high and low channels on the amp. The 1960 is very versitile from jazz to metal just add your favorite pedals.
