OVERVIEW

The Bugera 333XL 3-channel amplifier head delivers the versatility you need for every gig.

The hand-built Bugera 333XL 120W all-tube head offers 3 channels for maximum versatility, each with high-quality reverb, FX Loop, and 3-band EQ. A step up from the Bugera 333, you'll find the 333XL has added a noise gate, master presence control, as well as Hi and Lo-Gain inputs in addition to all the great features of the 333. This cutting-edge, modern style amp effectively handles everything from super-clean chording to high-gain leads, thanks to its 3-channels, aptly named Clean, Crunch and Lead.

The Clean channel won't break up, making it perfect for jazz, country and blues. Plus, it's the ideal channel for players using external boxes for their OD and distortion.

The Crunch channel is ideal for rock and dirty blues tone. Plus, it shines as the heavy rhythm channel for a metal rig if you really crank the gain.

Last but not least, the amp's Lead channel has the same structure as the crunch channel, but with access to even more gain.

Each of the 333XL's 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.

Some other outstanding features of the Bugera 333XL include a damping switch (high, medium, low) for total sound control, an impedance switch (4, 8 and 16 ohms) to match virtually any speaker cabinet, an FX Loop with independent send and return level controls, and a line output with dedicated level control.

The EQ section, called HYPER-ACTIVE, 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 tone control you can get.

Finally, the Bugera 333XL includes a heavy-duty 4-button footswitch that allows you to easily select your channel, and quickly boost the FX loop when desired.

And that's the 333XL”3 fully independent channels for 3 fully independent gain structures and tone stacks.

This model does not feature Infinium technology.

This 333XL has the potential of being a good amp head.
First off the 333XL came with 6L6 valves which should have been EL34 valves.
Second, the tube bias is not set proplery from the factory which is causing poor distortion on the lead channel.
I will replace the 6L6's with EL3 tubes set to proper bias and see if there is any improvement.

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

    I purchased this head about 3 weeks ago and everything that was promised was fulfilled. The Bugera head was packaged in its original box with all the warranty information, i also purchased and additional 1 year warranty. The quality of the head is excellent for the price, i have been playing on a Peavey Valve king, for some recording and playing some local shows, and the sound and clarity is much better with the Bugera in a live setting with the volume cranked up. You can't beat this head for the money...

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

      Bought this as a back-up to my other 333xl infinium. This one I have to set the bias for the power tubes-not a huge deal. I have played 1990, 333, 6260, 6262, and I keep coming back to this 333xl. Simply it does every sound I want: good clean, crunch-for alt or rock, and lead for high gain. I have a had some trouble with Bugera amps, but each time they fix it so I'm good.

            I've read review after review on this head the good,the bad,and the ugly. I have to say I'm very well pleased. For the money it hands down can't be beat!!! You can sum up most of the bad reviews as it's shipped across the ocean,then shipped to 123 Anywhere,U.S.A. Common sense will tell you to inspect a tube amp for any obvious problems,and check the bias or have it done and you're on your way! I love this amp! I can't describe how pleased I am with it. It's not a $3000.00 head but it has great tone and more gain than you'll ever need. A high gain tube amp for this price! That's a great deal! I definitely love my Bugera! Looking forward to maybe getting another model in the near future!

              It's been 40years since I've owned an amp now getting back in the swing of things. This amp kind of blows me away. I've read reviews of changing tubes and such but this head is all i'll ever need and couldn't be more happier with it and the price, thank you

                The Bugera 333XL is an awesome amp. I really like the 3 channels and the included foot switch is an excellent accessory to have. I play Hard Rock and the tone from the distortion channel is high power along with great tone. The amp is heavy but this is a minor point and no issue for me because I am a studio only musician. You won't be disappointed with this amp!

                  I had high hopes for this amplifier, though something in me knew the price was too good to be true. Upon opening the box, the Bugera seemed very well built and was quite stylish.
                  Plugging in, however, dispelled those thoughts. It lasted only 30 minutes before it died completely. No lights, no power, no sound.
                  Thankful for the great return policy of MF.
