    British classic 150W tube head with Infinium Tube Life Multiplier.

    The Bugera 1960 Infinium 150W classic hi-gain tube guitar amp head offers a tremendous range of tonal options. Bugera added 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 use with external FX, preamps or modeling processors, making the 1960 a great go-to amp for massive stage sound and unbridled versatility.

    The 1960 Infinium has one feature that distinguishes it from all other amps in its class--the two channels come equipped with 2 input jacks each that can be used separate, parallel or cascading operation, bridging the tonal eras of the '60s, 70s and 80s.

    The revolutionary Infinium Tube Life Multiplier technology is like having your very own technician inside your amp constantly monitoring and tweeking tube 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 tubes sounding as good as the day they were installed.

    Features
    • Hand-built all-tube amplifier driven by 4 - EL34 tubes with a monstrous output transformer
    • Two preamp channels with 4 input jacks
    • Vintage hot-rodded preamp mod from the early 80s featuring 3 - ECC83 tubes for terrifying tone and classic hi-gain
    • Revolutionary Infinium Tube Life Multiplier technology
    • Post-phase splitter Master control with true bypass
    • Original 60s tone control section with Bass, Mid, Treble and Presence
    • FX Loop with dedicated Level switch and true Bypass function

      Comments about Bugera 1960 Infinium 150W Classic Hi-Gain Tube Guitar Amp Head:

      Bugera went back to the drawing board when they made this updated version of the 1960 head they produced.

      First they installed mods that really work. The master volume on the back when turn on can bring the volume level all the way down to bedroom level without ever actually cutting off the signal. It is very handy if you want to tame this beast.
      The cascaded mod has a ton of gain and really where this amp shines. It sounds just like the JMP and 1987x heads I own but without the hiss and added noise attributed to Marshalls are cranked and idle.
      The parallel channel has an internal jump which means you no longer need a small jump cable up front to blend both clean and bass channels.
      This channel gives you better cleans vs the cascade channel, better for using your own dirt pedals if your into experimenting with all sorts of tones. I kind of call it a white canvas waiting for anything you want to throw at it or just use it as a nice loud fender style clean.

      Over all I really like how Bugera listen to the past comments when they made the first 1960 amp. No doubt they went back to the drawing board whan they made this version.

      I did change out the factory tubes because I feel the stock tubes seem to break up a little too quick. After doing this it made a huge improvement to the tone in this amp.

      The Infinium system really works. True story, One of the NEW power tubes I received turned out to be bad, the system did what it was suppose to do and one LED stayed on letting me know there was a bad tube that needed to be replaced. GREAT system that works!

      I have used two different Marshall cabs with this head and found that the higher 300 watts cab sounded better maybe because this head is rated at 150 watts, my 73' JMP 100 watts cabinet seem to break up way to early. My 1960 Lead cab loaded with G1275t really handles this head perfectly. It sounds like a Marshall head running through both but a lot more quieter.

      I would recommend this head to anyone looking for a plexi head under a grand that's been modded and done right by factory.

      Great job Bugera!!! I am not a hatter but a player. Check out my demos using this head on YouTube JBL8863 using pedals and just the gain of the amp.

          Comments about Bugera 1960 Infinium 150W Classic Hi-Gain Tube Guitar Amp Head:

          I had the original 1960 amp and after 3 years even with the extended warranty it stopped working. after the first year it stopped under the extended warranty they fixed it. they claim they could not find nothing wrong with it and sent it back after they replaced the tubes. I have several other tube amps so I don't play the heck out of my amps including the bugera 1960. so the other week I played on my bugera amp and guess what! it played for 30 seconds and stopped stone dead. I contacted bugera and got nothing back from them. their customer service is terrible. I would never buy another amp from them and would recommend that other not buy these amps. I would save my money and buy some other amp. I have many other tube amps and they last. do not buy this amp or any other buger amp, a word to the wise!!!

            Don't ever go by the 'At this price strategy' Two pieces of garbage are worse than one.

            See if you have local repair. This is a must. If you are going to spend at least make sure you can get it repair. Good luck.
