OVERVIEW

120W, handbuilt quality and classic tube-driven tone in a road-worthy 2x12".

Bugera's goal with the 120W 6260 2x12" tube guitar combo was the tone of a high-power, super-lead amp, with all the virile crunch it takes to detonate the center stage. With 6L6s this design has a very open and glassy tone; with EL34s, it takes on a more compressed and noticeably midrange character.

With the master up and using the Clean gain knob for volume, you get pristine, yet fat clean power. Turning the Clean gain up gradually causes the amp to react like a non-master volume amp, and achieves a very natural sounding overdrive ” what the comany calls œTexas Clean.

Turning the master and gain up together causes the amp to react like a non-master volume amp.

Turning Clean channel gain up achieves a very natural sounding overdrive. The amp will react sharply to changes in volume or attack from the instrument.

The Crunch setting is simply the clean channel with more gain from another 12AX7 to create the rock n roll rhythm sound heard on all your classic rock faves.

The Bright switch helps darker sounding instruments cut through and really shines when using a hollow or semi-hollow body guitar.

The Lead channel is all about articulate gain and sustain. Copious amounts of harmonics and compression help solos stand out and cut thru the band with ease.

Separate master volumes allow for easy rhythm-clean/solo-lead switching with total control over the level of each sound.

This is a truly fine amp.So easy to adjust and coax out tones. Reverb warm and usable. Power?You said it.I have a Peavey Valve King(which I adore) and this amp gives it a run for the money. I run them in tandem which generates some tasty sounds. The Bugera does have a gain control on the clean channel which allows you to get a "hot" clean sound(kinda neat). Included with the amp is a four function footswitch(made of metal).All in all I'm glad I picked up the "stupid deal of the day".I think we'll be hearing more about Bugera. Clean,powerfull,affordable alternative to more expensive brands.Did I say it sounds like a Marshall? It does!

I should have known , when a deal looks way too good it usually is. After I plugged it in and warmed the tubes up I flipped the standby switch as directed in manual. The amp has a bad electric Humm and then goes dead. I researched fixes and there are some for this amp , as it is known to have had issues with earlier versions. Of course of which I had to get. Good thing is Bugera is ore than happy to correct the issue. Only I did not have the time to wait for the fix. friends have this same amp and they are excellent amps when fixed. I would recommend this only if you have the time to get it corrected after you purchase it. I did not have that option. I may try and purchase another at a later date and bite the bullet on time for repairs to be make. If you want power this amp supplies more than you'd ever need under normal inside venues. Outside mic'd back into a PA or added to a stack it would work well

    Comments about Bugera 6260 120W 2x12 2-Channel Tube Guitar Combo Amp with Reverb:

    I recently had a gig, and I had to keep the volume down, even though it was a good sized building. I can only say that it took a bit of time to get one that worked, but it was well worth the wait! I am a Marshall user since forever, yet I like this Bugera better than anything I've used in the past!

      The overall sound of the Bugera amps is good. I am not sure how long they will hold up.The cabinet box on these are a little weak. They are heavy but not built extremely solid. The supports in the amp became loose in shipping. A lot of this was due to the way it was re boxed.I live in the same state as the warehouse. It should have arrived in better shape.

        ok, here is my experience, bought this because nothing for this amount of money is a full tube combo. the first one came doa, sent it back, no problem because musicians friend is great. the next one came and it rocks, vary responsive to pick attack on the clean setting, using my 335 with coil taping you dont need to touch the pedal, you can set the volumes and go from clean to lead on the guitar. ive been doing this for years, but this amp does it REALLY well. overall, great amp if you get one that works.

        Ordered in May 2015; used for a few gigs and originally pretty satisfied. Put it on stage for a Saturday night gig and the fuse blew....the one night I didn't bring a backup! Replaced fuse and it blew again within 10 minutes. Have to send it back to Jacksonville FLA for warranty repair and pay shipping costs. Mentioned to techs that there is a high level of hum in the speakers when turned to average volume. Wouldn't have expected this amp to hum that much and go bad that fast. Will post after getting it back from servicing to see if it will hum less and not blow the fuse after 10 minutes.

          I recently lost my 1987X Plexi to Pawn America and when it was time to get it back, they'd already sold it. So I took the money I would have paid to get it back and found several "out of the box" Bugera amps at MF. I did some research and heard nothing but positive about them so I ordered one. To say I'm very pleased with my purchase would be an understatement. This baby is a fire breather in every sense of the word. The non master volume 1987X is pretty much a one trick pony. And Marshall amps, like the Gibson Les Pauls are nowhere near as good as they used to be and both have become grossly over-priced. With an overdrive pedal you can turn the 6260 from a 2 channel amp into a 4 channel amp. I think it was a great price on what is proving to be a really great amp.

              OK it is here now and let me assess this beast. It has a high and low gain input which is probably a pentode function. There is definitely a noticeable difference in power here. Clean channel features a bright button, crunch button, both of which are good to go. The crunch really adds grit to the already fine clean tone provided by the 4 6L6 tubes, which by the way can be subbed out for EL34's. Reverb is every bit as good and deep as any I have played on. Bass, Mid, and Treble functions are common to both Lead and Clean and have a good range.The Lead channel is beastly. Just on about 3 or so, and keep in mind that this and the clean channel both have master volumes, I get great ZZ Top harmonics . I have not really gone too far into the depths of the Lead aspect yet as I dont do thrash, metal, or any of that, There is also a presence knob ala Marshall. Oh and the four channel footswitch covers clean, lead, reverb, and FX loop. On the back of the amp is FX loop, Preamp out, Footswitch, 4,8,16 ohm selector, and power cord. Two very nice crisp 12" Bugera speakers... I give this amp a solid A+ and shall call it "Twin Killer".

                aside from the above pro's,I put a independant cooling fan in immediatly.,& will use a padded handtruck for
                transport.This baby is master to my marshall valvestate 12" 100 watt slave.I used a zip tie to keep the
                pedal box input stable,as the prongs are easily bent,so I leave it dedicated & have match marked it.,in case I decide to unplug it.The cooing fan is a MUST,unless you want to bake a pizza on top.

                I bought the amp to handle loop phrases dropped to it from outside my stereo rig (Mesa & StudioMaster). It's actually the second loop handler, the other being a ToneWorks 2-12 hybrid. I had hoped to get a smoother tube sound like the Mesa in clean mode in order to blend with the ToneWorks ungodly slam dunk British blast.

                I'm not sure what I expected for the price, which is phenomenal, but while being an all tube (12ax7 x gc6L6) and a STRONG amp, it lacks in the "tube tone" department. My main guitars, a Gibson L6 & a Music Man Steve Morse model, sound harsh through the amp regardless of pickup choice or EQ setting on the amp.

                The clean channel isn't "chimey" but it's very clear, which is now what I'll be using this amp for, and as I work with pedals anyway, I can rough it up a bit before dropping the loop phrase on it. The "crunch" channel is pretty nasty and I can't seem to get a good OD tone from it even though I've tried it through several different settings.

                To be honest, I bought this amp thinking "if nothing else, I will get two 12" speakers and a full set of replacement tubes for my other amps, however, it is a good amp when kept clean (gets LOUD clean without breaking up - if you're looking for that sort of thing - almost Britishy brassy).

                A good amp for the price but it probably wouldn't be your primary as it lacks the "tube tone" that guitar players look for, which is confusing to me because it IS an all tube amp and I don't understand why the circuitry couldn't have been tweaked a bit to give it a "tube crunch" and a set of balls.
