OVERVIEW

Hardcore 120W 3-channel tube head with high-quality reverb, FX Loop, and 3-band EQ per channel.

The 333 is cutting-edge, modern style amps fully featured for use in any situation or guitar style. The name says it all 3, 3, 3 ... three fully independent channels for three fully independent gain structures and tone stacks.

The totally Clean channel that won’t break up ... great for jazz, country, blues and also great as a fat, clean power base for players using external boxes for their OD and distortion.

The Crunch channel can work as a "halfway dirty" sound for rock and blues if you crank the volume and use the gain as your volume. It shines as the heavy rhythm channel for a metal rig if you crank the gain. The Lead channel has the same structure as the crunch channel but with access to more gain.

Each of these channels has its own volume feeding the overall master volume so you have total control over the level of each. The boost option of the FX loop allows you to set each channel at the same volume and then boost or cut the volume of the entire amp no matter what channel is selected - you can finally boost your rhythm or clean tone (yes, clean solos do happen).

The EQ section is called "HYPER-ACTIVE" because it allows for unlimited tone shaping and big scooped out metal tones via the midrange control. You have to hear this to appreciate how much more control you can get.

This is a closeout model, and does not feature Infinium technology.

    Comments about Bugera 333 120W 3-Channel Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    I picked this up on a closeout sale, the price was dirt-cheap for a new 3-channel tube amp head. Advertised as Infinium technology. When received, it did not have Infinium. The next day, MF emailed me to say that they made a mistake about the Infinium on their web site. Anyway, the clean channel is very useable, and the reverb is nice. However, the crunch and lead channels are way too noisy to be useable. My noise gate could not tame the noise. An awful squealing hum. Even if all three channels sounded good, a major flaw is that the amp can remember settings for reverb on/off per channel, but settings are reset when the amp is powered off. You would have to turn on the reverb for each channel each time you use the amp. A tad annoying if you like a little reverb on each channel. Glad to return this amp because of the poor sound quality and because of MF's mistaken description. As always, MF return is a no-hassle process.

    This amp was advertised a few weeks ago in the overview description that this bugera 333 120w 3-channel amp has the infinium tube technology but if you pre ordered one 2 or 3 ago thinking that your getting one with infinium technology,you will be dissapointed!

    This happened to some one i know and he was not happy about it! The description now on M.F.web site does not mention anything about the infinium technology in the bugera 333,i guess M.F.caught the mistake.

      Comments about Bugera 333 120W 3-Channel Tube Guitar Amp Head:

      I bought the Trirec Infinium,and love it alot more,it's still rockin' like the day it got here.Now i'll review this the best i can.1st it's every bit as good sounding,in a different voicing.2nd it is the 2nd best sounding amp,next to the Trirec,i simply get all the gain and dialing in a channel has never been easier.Wicked sounding amp!!Read directions,match you're cabinet ohms with the head,meaning if you have a 8ohm cab,put the amp on 8!This amp does not bias it's self like the infinium does.use a sheilded speaker cable to run you're cab.I think,previous owners of solid state amps,won't believe the chug,chug sound.the only con is they advertized infinum,well it's not,but no biggy,because all but that it awesome,i'll write a nother review in a few mts,we'll see if theystand the test of time

        DEFINITELY WORTH THE MONEY

        Comments about Bugera 333 120W 3-Channel Tube Guitar Amp Head:

        It's definitely worth the money. It sounds exactly like a modern, powerful all tube amp should sound. It came with a foot switch, which alot of amps don't. Also, the reverb is set to each channel until you turn it off, which is kind of cool.
        The third channel seems like more of a gain boost than it's own channel. It doesn't sound a whole lot different than the first. I haven't been able to give the amp a good workout because it's so loud I can't turn it up in anything but a large room without hurting my ears, so that might have something to do with that though. Also there are different settings for high gain pickups and different kinds of electronics which I don't use.
        The only bad thing I can say is that I wish I'd gotten the one with the noise gate. If you want to play without a pedalboard/gate, you'll probably need it. It's so loud, you'll pick up every string slide, hiss, bump, and pop your guitars can make.
