The all-tube Budda Bully guitar amplifier head is a spare-no-expense high gain juggernaut that is at home in any guitar rig. The amp features 3 channels; clean, rhythm and lead, all with independent 3 band EQ, reverb control, effects loops with send and return levels, plus separate resonance and presence controls. It's a great fit for any kind of high-octane guitar application, from rock to blues to metal to fusion, the Budda Bully is the king of the playground. It just might take the other kids' lunch money.

Channel 2's effects loop features a switch that makes the effects loop global, for incredible versatility in effects routing. The amp also features a patent pending feature called PowerPan, where the user can pan between solid state and tube rectifiers and anywhere in between! PowerPan makes the different tonal options almost limitless.

There's even a 2nd rectifier tube to stand as a spare in case of a tube failure. The Budda Bully also features a 1/2 power switch for operating the amplifier in either ½ power or full power mode. Using the ½ power switch along with the PowerPan feature allows the output of the amp to be between 25 and 120 watts for amazing versatility. Each channel features a footswitchable pedal style lead boost called Overboost that is also 100% tube driven. The back panel features an amplifier chain section with a power-amp in/preamp-out jack and a slave output, impedance selector and MIDI in/through for use in professional MIDI switching rigs.

No compromise guitar head.

Comments about Budda Bully 120W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

Full disclosure, I bought this locally. All I can say is wow. All 3 channels sound amazing. Overboost is basically a tube screamer sound. Powerpan is really cool because you can drop the power to about 20-30 watts and make it really spongy, very cool for recording single coil overdrive tracks. I don't use channel 3 all that much because it's quite Mesaboogieish and that really isn't my flavor so much. Channel 2 sounds a lot like my bud's SLO 100. Clean channel is very clean but if you use the powerpan to lower the power along with the 1/2 switch, you can get a nice crunch out of it. This head is way, way more versatile than any head I've ever had, but even if you just turn it on and stick everything on 12 oclock, it sounds crazy good. The loops are a little intimidating, but I'm sure I will figure out teh best way to use them. Right now I just have channel 2's loop on global. Kudos to Budda on this one, home run!!
