    Andddddd I just figured out why its called a 6260. Not much more we should say about that.

    A local store in MD had the 6260 combo in when I was there on Tuesday. Sounded pretty brutal, maybe they will make a 1x12 version with slightly more reasonable wattage. I barely played around with it as I had to get back to work...but there are some out there.

      I think Behringer did a great job at marketing these things to the 15-25 year old metal heads who want high gainers on a small budget.


      Holy crap that's the main demographic of HCAF , no wonder so many people are frothing at the mouth over these and are being pushed hard on this forum

        The only Behringer product I own is a 6 channel passive mixer but it has been working flawlessly for 4 years now.

        Behringer does hit the mark sometimes. Their 20 dollar Vintage tube overdrive beats any Tube Screamer ive ever heard (ready for the flaming). However they are flimsy. Big deal, Buy another one. Stock up on them!

          Most pro sound guys won't touch Behringer gear with a 10 foot pole. Doesn't make it bad stuff, but I can't count the # of riders I've seen with "No Behringer" in bold.



          Are they worried about damaging their reputation at the risk of cheap equipment? Is that why its in there? I guess I can understand that.
          However, I cant think of any reason other than that without it being snobbery. Correct me if I am wrong...
          I suppose the rider only covers PA gear,as it is not the soundman's business what the band uses for their own instruments, pedals, cords, and amps.

            god this forum can get so retarded sometimes...

            Bashing Behringer is the favourite hobby of the "elitist" group of the HC majority, which is a bunch of kids who never play or record music, just sit all day posting in the forum and I'm sure NEVER TRIED ANYTHING BY BEHRINGER.

            Listen, Behringer makes some usable stuff. I have some of their producs, my friends have some, no problems whatsoever. Quality isn't Eventide necessarily, but it's dirt cheap!!!

            The Bugeras, I don't know. If they're good, they're good!! End of story...

              A lot of dudes bash Behringer. They carry teh reputation from many moons ago. I worked in repairs for an auth servicer of Eventide, Digitech, Lexicon, Mackie. We saw all kinds of problems with every model made. From bad switches, jacks, firmware, bad solder points. The Behringer bitchers think it's all junk. The reputation is that its just cheap gear. Expensive gear can fail. One big piece we saw was the DBX Driverack PA!
              Mackie VLZ mixers are not real strong according to techs I know. Mackies dog in many opinions.

              I do know a lot of Pro Sound guys, clubs with Behringer equipment. Most popular ones :
              DEQ2496
              DCX2496
              Virtualizer Pro
              MX9000 mixers popular in HR, smaller studios
              MDX compressors are popular

              Some great budget gear. If you want better, pay for it.

              I still laugh as hard seeing the bull**************** on sites. Cheap cables, 20 foot cables coiled up when they only need a 3' patch cable Al sorts of **************** from novice guys. Then they bitch about their equip and say its noisey or something. Just cuz it's a sub $800 mixer don't mean you use a $3 cable on a 25' run.

              Like a guy bitching at HR forum about an Eventide. Noisy POS!! No, the user had a $5 cable with a $3000 rack unit

                I agree with Norton. I ordered a 6262 (hard to get and was on a waiting list) but it finally came and I am impressed. I have had a 5150 in the past and liked the gain but as everyone knows it is a one trick pony. I am fairly impressed with the clean and crunch channels. I have a carvin bolt that sounds great through both. With a little boost (modded tubescreamer and keeley sd1) it sounds really good. I also have a traynor for this type of sound but the Bugera is close. I have been running a boss eq in the loop with the a chorus, tubescreamer and EH line booster in front. The lead channel has alot of gain. I don't play loud all the time and with the eq in the loop it sounds nice. With the tubescreamer in front is thickens the distortion alot but with the eq in the loop i really don't need any boosting. I have the gain between 5 and 6.5 for the heavy stuff I like to play. The crunch channels gain gets real distorted and Norton is exactly right when he says it would be great for sludge stoner type stuff. All in all I am very impressed with it and will keep it. It is very useful especially for the price. I am a gear whore so I will continue to get other amps but I like this thing and would like to try the 333. With some new tubes it may even sound better but I really am not disappointed at all so I haven't done a tube change out. I run it through a genz benz 2x12 or carvin v3 4x12 with 30's. The genz benz gives it great low end and the carvin gives it a little more sizzle and cut.

                  Love my Bugeras! First one I got was a 1990 (Marshall Dual reverb clone). I've had that one for almost 4 years and with no problems. Sound was pretty close right out of the box, just a little too brittle for my taste. But that all changed once I retubed. Dropped some electro harmonix el-34s in and it sounds great! I've since picked up 2 333xl's and dumped the stock trash they come with, loaded one w EH el-34's and the other w JJ 6L6's and they both crush! I chose the 333 after side by siding with an Engl Invader and a Fryette SigX. Soundwise it stood up and price wise well, that's a no brainer. Talked to the guy that does my retubing and he says he thinks they're a steal because unlike a lot of stuff, the Bugeras are serviceable. That sold me.

                Glowing reviews from a Bugera dealer, simply shocking


                There is a tough crowd on this forum. I'm hearing very good reviews form users as well. It was good to hear some of the concerns from the dealer. I'll take feedback in all forms.

                  1. Who cares about clones, 90% the amps everyone here owns are clones or something else slightly changed on a previous amp with a new name slapped on it.

                  2. Everyone else is right.. why is it all the Rich Snobs bitching about these amps? If your not interested then don't get one and Ignore the threads about them.

                  3. If the boards/Input jacks/other parts are fragile in these then treat it like you would with any other decent amp. Don't throw it around, Don't smoke around it, Don't leave it in Extremely Hot or Cold weather, Don't just yank your cord out of it.

                  4. Why be a douche bag to somebody thats giving Valid opinions to people that could be possibly interested in these amps because they don't have thousands to drop on circuit boards and wires surrounded by a wood box?

                  5. I've owned Behringer EQ's and 2 mixers.. I've never had a problem with any of them and did the job just as good as the other companies that costs 2x's as much as the Behringer stuff did.

                    Just my opinion man. I am not trying to sell my store stock on HC. I put one post up here about having some available because I saw lots of folks that werent able to get them and were looking for them. In the last 2 years, I have sold probably 5 items on HC. That is not why I post this stuff. I post this stuff as a guitar player. Clips arent going to prove anything, just go try one.


                    Ok, you may not be pushing your stuff here, but you must see how it kind of looks like it sometimes. I think clips will tell us a lot. I can certainly tell if it's in the realm of a MKIV from a clip. My MarkIV clips sound pretty much exactly how the amp sounds in the room.

                      The first question I have are what sort of output transformer does it have? Massive, nano, toroid?
                      Godin Solidac with Billl Lawrence pickups, various tweaked pedals, SKB 3U rack/pedal board, new Digitech GSP 1101, Lee Jackson/Ampeg Vl-504, Marshall 4x12 and stereo 1x12s. Uber-modded Hiwatt DR504 soon to added to the rig.
                      All mods done by myself but I should have spent the time practicing.

                        Well, look at peavey. Their Classic series are blatant ripoffs of Fenders amps.


                        yeah, we all know that el84s scream Fullerton.

                          Amazing huh the guys who can't afford over priced amps that cost sooo much less to produce and get a 3 to 4x mark up are psyched because they might be able to get a tube amp that kicks ass without having to re-mortgage their houses and guys who are being snobbish getting upset about a cheap amp that may sound good and feel like they've been ripped off or afraid that their status amongst amp owners will have been revoked lmao too ****************in funny. Thanks for the reviews Norton now i'm looking forward to ordering a 333

                            Hi Norton. I found your review to be very helpful since I'm looking for a decently priced tube amp myself.

                            I have a question. Have you ever played B-52 amps? If you do, how do you think it compares to bugera?

                            I think if I'm going to get a tube amp, it'd be either B52 of Bugera 212 combo. I just don't know which one would be better choice for me since I have no access to either of them:'(

                              Dude...do yourself a favor and check out Peavey's ValveKing series, before rushing out and buying a POS Bugera. The ValveKing, IMHO, blows away the B-52 as well.
