The Bugera 1960I, Experience the Difference!
The 1960I Infinium has one main feature that distinguishes it from all other amps in its class-the two channels come equipped with 2 input jacks each that be used in separate, parallel or cascading operation, bridging the tonal eras of the '60s, '70s and '80s. For example, you can experience classic rock sound by plugging into the upper left input, which puts CH1 + CH2 in parallel (same as using a patch cable between them), or use the upper right input for a vintage CH2 sound. The upper left and right inputs can also be used individually to bring two independent signals to CH1 and CH2. The lower jacks provide series (cascaded) operation for Classic Hi- Gain (CH1 + CH2). Individually, the lower right jack can be used for -6 dB gain, while the lower left jack provides normal high impedance gain.

Infinium Valve Life Multiplier Technology
Bugera's revolutionary Infinium Valve Life Multiplier technology is like having your very own technician inside your amp constantly monitoring and tweaking valve performance for the ultimate in tonal integrity and reliability. This revolutionary circuit not only optimizes the performance of each output tube, it dynamically balances the drive between them to more evenly distribute the load. With Infinium, your tubes last up to 20 times longer, saving you substantial money over the lifespan of your amplifier. Infinium also compensates for the effects of aging, automatically adjusting current levels to keep your valves sounding as good as the day they were installed.

No need for expensive matched valve sets! Mix and match any combination of compatible valve types and brands. The Inifinium system monitors performance of each power tube continuously and displays defective valves to allow for easy and individual replacement.

If and when a valve does reach the end of its life, the system even tells you which one to replace. All you need do is replace the faulty valve and let Infinium take care of the rest for you. This all adds up to more consistent sound quality and longer life for your valves. Maintenance for valve amps has never been this easy!

Making of the 1960I
Bugera did a lot of listening to obscure, long-departed Brit designs, and spent the better part of a year tweaking the hand- selected EL34s and ECC83s to give the 1960I INFINIUM its tremendous range of tonal options. They added a no- compromise post- phase- inverter master volume that can be bypassed for direct signal path and a huge output transformer with specially nested windings for increased dynamic response and clarity. The onboard FX Loop (with true bypass) is ideal for use with external FX, preamps or modeling processors, making the 1960 the go-to amplifier for massive stage sound and unbridled versatility.

Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
From the first 1960 to the new 1960 Infinium there has been a lot of hard work on the part of the Behringer Company,who owns Bugera?My honest facts about these Tube Amps?In a period not exceeding 5 years from now these will be the Tube Amp Heads/Combo's to try and buy!I've seen this Business work harder than any other competition in there field.Great price,and the big secrete is these 1960 models for this year has the full Randy Rhodes Modifications to them!If you want that Hendrix sound,or the Duane Allman sound,these Bugera 1960's are as close as you'll ever buy.The only correction remaining to fix is to add the "CERAMIC" inputs for the 6L6's instead of the plastic type.
Reliability
How has it stood up over time?
On the road I've installed the "CERAMIC" Marshall Plexi fixtures for all Tubes instead of the Bugera Stock ones!I've got two of these Plexi Heads,and both with the Randy Rhodes packages with the Marshall Ceramic inputs for tubes,and they can take it baby!!!The "ROAD" or the Studio you get the same sound,all the time every time!Just make the simple mod's with the Marshall inputs and you'll get a deal that you want to keep it your secretes?"SOLID"!
General
Your general opinion of this product.
Greater today than three years ago,and I can't hardly wait to see there obligations to "QUALITY" from the Behringer Commitments.And never mix your "EFFECTS PEDALS"?Go to Behringer's web page,and the first purchase?The HO2 Wa Pedal with the BIG TUBE OVER DRIVE TUBE SCREAMER!And from there see how many pedals you can select from?
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Now this is a very grey area for most?Do not make this harder than you have too?A American Stratocaster is "FAT",and "TONEY"!You'll get all the Jimi Hendrix sounds you have searched for!And a solid mix is the OLDIR but GOODIE,a TELE?Now get you a Standard Gison Les Paul with the 59 Classic Pick Ups,and tune to "E",and a good Glass Bottle Slide,and you'll dig right into Duane Allmans sound?No big secretes "MUSIC HEADS"!
Tone
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Read previous remarks?
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
As stated in previous statements the "QUALITY" will exceed your expectations!Just make "MODS" with the simple Marshall inputs.
Action
How was the action out of the box?
Quick responsive,very toucy baby.
