Classic All-Tube Design
The VINTAGE V5 INFINIUM features true Class-A technology with a 12AX7 front-end and an EL84 power stage. A masterfully crafted all-tube combo amplifier, the V5 provides sweetly-balanced harmonics and natural tube compression, resulting in the warm distortion and break-up you’ve come to appreciate from those vintage megaliths of yesteryear – only in a much more portable and attractive package. The hand-selected 12AX7 preamp tube in V5’s classic ‘60s-era preamp provides everything from sweetly-purring blues to mind - blowing crunch. Often employed in British-style amplifiers, the EL84 output tube is known for its crisp and chiming tonal quality when pushed to the max, and the V5 harnesses that power via the built-in power attenuator – for the ultimate guitar tone at any volume level.

High-Definition Reverb
Adding to its impressive list of tone-shaping options, the VINTAGE V5’s high-definition Reverb puts the perfect finishing touch to your signature sound. Adjustable via the dedicated control on the front panel, you can finally achieve any sound you desire – from a subtle touch to the cavernous, natural-sounding reverberation of a large arena.

INFINIUM Tube Life Multiplier Technology
Years in the making, the INFINIUM Tube Life Multiplier Technology can extend the usable lifespan of your amplifier's expensive power valves by up to 20 times, saving you huge money and ensuring the integrity of your tone. How? This revolutionary circuit automatically and continuously monitors the performance of each output tube, and dynamically drives it towards the target operating point, for an evenly distributed load.

INFINIUM also compensates for the effects of aging, automatically adjusting current levels to keep your tubes sounding as good as new – even when AC line voltages drop below nominal levels. Similar technology has been used for decades in all-wheel drive cars, where systems modulate the power going to each wheel to improve traction. Just consider INFINIUM Series amps "4-wheel drive" for your guitar.

Available exclusively from BUGERA, INFINIUM Tube Life Multiplier Technology is a major breakthrough in amplifier design and manufacture, providing incredible reliability for your stage performance and more consistent sound over the lifespan of your tubes. Since they are always operating at optimal levels, your output tubes perform more predictably and last much longer, thanks to BUGERA's marvelous INFINIUM Technology, saving you some serious money!

Power Attenuator - Your Best Tone at Any Volume
The convenient, built-in Power Attenuator allows you to operate the V5 at your choice of 5 Watts, 1 Watt, or even 0.1 of a Watt, so you can get everything from sweet and sassy to maximum tube saturation at any volume level. This amazing feature alone makes the V5 INFINIUM worth its weight in gold!

Good buy for the money
What is your opinion of this product?
The Bugera V5 is about as good a deal on a tube amp as you can get. I just wanted a low watt tube amp for playing at home. The Good: Looks good, the attenuator is a huge plus at this price point. The reverb is not bad. Playing an LTD strat with 3 Single coils, a Blueshawk with P90s and an Ibanez with Dimarzio with a H-S-H config. and it sounds good with all of them. The Bad: These are notorious for tube rattle at higher volumes and mine is no exception, only on the lowest attenuator setting is it not apparent. This was not a deal breaker for me though,as already have a Tungsol 12ax7 and JJ EL84 on the way for re-tubing and to be on the safe side I also purchased a pair of Tube dampers from Eurotubes, an inexpensive fix. The head phone out seems pretty worthless so far, sound wise seems harsh, but again we'll see after the re-tube. I am going to give the stock Turbosound speaker a shot as it isn't broken in yet. If you have realistic expectations this is a nice low watt amp

Totally happy
What is your opinion of this product?
I wanted a small tube amp for my living room. I was worried about too much volume from a big amp. No more worries. The 5 watt does the trick. The EL84 tone is sweet and the built in digital reverb is as good as anything I've heard from a boutique pedal, not to mention, the price can't be beat. Terrific little amp!
