OVERVIEW

The 33XL-212 offers dual inputs, a noise gate and presence control, plus all the great features of the 333-212.

The hand-built Bugera 333XL-212 120W all-tube combo offers dual Bugera 12" speakers and 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-212'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-212 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-212 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-212”3 fully independent channels for 3 fully independent gain structures and tone stacks.

This model does not feature Infinium technology.

This amp is a really, really, great sounding amp on all three channels. VERY LOUD! On the clean channel scoop the mids out and you get Fender cleans, with the mids up, just a little dirt. the crunch channel goes from just a little dirt to saturated overdrive. The lead channel goes the rest of the way to screaming feedback overdrive.
All the controls work well. Thia amp is very much a Peavy XXX.
Please, buy a warranty and save the box...had to return the first one. No hassle with Musician's Friend.

This amp worked for maybe two minutes out of the box and then a huge pop, and nothing. At first I thought it was a fuse. Turns out the high voltage input had poor solder joints and it had knocked off two thermistors and one more had a poor contact. After fixing that myself (no service centers close to me), I powered it back up. Had a bad popping and crackling issue. Found a YouTube video that pointed me to bad grounds. Fixed the bad grounds and now it is a solid amp. Great sound, and a great value for a tube amp. MF was willing to swap out, but I didn't want to deal with that headache, if I didn't need to.

      Comments about Bugera 333XL-212 120W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

      I bought this instrument as an Open Box, Level 1. Turns out it had experienced a fall, which had broken some of the wooden supports in the box and distorted the mounting brackets of the output transformer. First time on It worked ok, but had a lot of microphony, especially at higher volumes.

      I took the amp out of the box and set it down on top and started to experiment with it. Within a few days on of the EL34s blew. Finally I replaced all the 12AX7s with new Chinese ones, and the EL34s with Russian 6L6GCs. This improved the sound quite a bit. I also discovered that the 9 pin tube covers were transmitting a lot of vibration to the tubes, so I removed them. I intend to construct ones that insulate the tubes from the box/chassis vibration at high levels.

      Now I could better test the machine. Turns out the speakers start breaking up about 2/3 volume.

      In the end I replaced them with Guitar Warehouse units, and now the amp sounds the way I want.

                Good sound. The clean channel is best of the three. All three channels are footswitchable. Reverb works on all three. The sound qualuity is not as good as Peavey, but for the price, it sounds godod enough. The Crunch and gain channels do not sound like Marshall. I have a Marshall TSL and it sounds much better on crunch and lead channels, but this is more like the Peavey triple x series. Reveb sounds good. The knobs are very cheap and felt like they could fall off at any time. This would be great for beginner or playing live if you need to leave your amp some place and don't really care if some one steals it.

                  I bought this amp because I needed something to take out of the studio. I was really impressed by the sound...I will probably change the speakers but that is just personal preference. I used it live twice...first was an inside event and it did great...I used it for an outside gig and had to tweak it more but worked out fine...for the money it is great...I have Fender, Blackstar, Peavey and Music Man amps I play through every week...this was a good addition to the lineup...can't wait to use it again!
