    A boutique-style 100W head with Infinium and Tri-Mode Rectifier.

    The Bugera Trirec Infinium features a Varipower dial that scales output power from 1W to 100W, giving you sweet power tube saturation at apartment-friendly volumes. Feel like experiencing a power tube variety besides 6L6? Infinium Tube Life Multiplier technology not only extends the lifespan of your output tubes, it allows you to run all 6L6s, 6550s, EL34s, or you can mix any combination of the above to create your own signature tone. The Trirec gives you three preamp channels, each with a wide array of sonic options, internal reverb, an adjustable and remote switchable boost, an FX loop and three rectifier modes to choose from (tube, silicon diode, tube and silicon diode).

    In the Bugera Trirec, both breeds of rectifier are alive and well in the same amp. You can even use them at the same time. Choose Silicon Diodes for high power and tight bass, Tubes for lower power and sag, or a combination of the two called Tubes and Diodes for medium-powered operation spiked with equal parts punch and vintage grace.

    Features

    • Hand-built and hand-wired
    • Infinium Tube Life Multiplier
    • Three fully independent channels (Classic, Vintage and Modern)
    • Three unique rectifier modes
    • Integrated high-class reverb with dedicated control
    • Varipower control allows the maximum power to be scaled down to produce a cranked amp sound at lower volumes

        Comments about Bugera Trirec Infinium 100W 3-Channel Tube Guitar Amplifier Head:

        A really nice amp all around with good tonal variation. But the problem is with the gain. Even on the lead overdrive channel with the gain fully clockwise, it was not near enough. Maxing out the gain on the Burgera felt like a 5 on a Mesa Boogie. I had assumed that with (5) 12AX7 tubes in the preamp that it would provide superb sustain and great touch sensitivity.

        It did not provide this though and so I was forced to return it. If you are looking for moderately strong distortion and good crunch, then this amp is a winner. If you are looking for infinite sustain for intricate runs aka Joe Satriani or Vai, then the Trirec Infinium is the wrong amp.

        Also, a slight audible click when switching channels.

            Comments about Bugera Trirec Infinium 100W 3-Channel Tube Guitar Amplifier Head:

            As a person who has experience with a number of boutique amplifiers I must say the TriRec is very impressive. It produces monstrous tones with little effort. You'll hear a lot gf guys who use pro gear talking about leaving the knobs at noon and getting great sounds. That's exactly how the TriRec comes across and yet it's a tweakers delight. There are so many options for changing the sounds across the 3 channels and when you mix that with Diode vs Tube (or combined!) rectifier settings + the ability to put pretty much any valve you can think of in the mix without needing to re-bias you have an instant winner.

            As a guy who has owned a variety of Engl and Diezel amps I can truly say that the Bugera ranks up there with them in terms of sound quality and features. I would argue that it's easier to dial in a great dirty sound on the Bugera and the quality of the tone is top notch.

            The big concern with Bugera is build quality but so far it hasn't been an issue and I'm really hoping that it holds up as the Trirec has quickly become my favorite amp in the arsenal.

            Channel switching, with the included pedalboard, can be a bit noisy but that's the only negative I could draw out at this time. The fact that a midi based controller is included with the amp at this price point is simply amazing.

            I highly recommend those who are interested in a variety of tones include ultra modern and classic to check this amp out. You won't be disappointed.

            Comments about Bugera Trirec Infinium 100W 3-Channel Tube Guitar Amplifier Head:

            I had been reading and watching web videos about this amp since 2010 and thought it would never actually be released. But when they finally became available around 8/13 I was first to order one. I have to say that is amp actually lives up to all the hype that surrounded it prior to its release. Straight out of the box this thing kicks major buttox. That unique mesa-like distortion tone is unmistakably there on channels 2 & 3. By far my favorite feature of this amp is the "Varipower" knob that adjust the power tubes output from the full 100+ watts down to about 5 watts. I prefer to keep the knob around what I approximate to be 25 watts in my home studio. This way you get some power tube distortion but still have enough power to let the full bass response of the amp come through. All of the eleven tubes in the amp are Chinese made and are all of high quality. This includes 5 12AX7s, 4 6L6GCs, and the 2 big 5U4 rectifier tubes. I usually like to play with the tone by switching out both preamp and power tubes. But with this amp it sounds so good out of the box I have no desire to do that, at least for now. I really love the sound of this amp for heavy palm muted rhythm guitar riffs. It has that wicked mesa-like voicing in the lower midrange I don't get with any of my other amps. The build quality is good for a Chinese made amp. I have had no issues with it in the few months I've had it and don't anticipate any. But I feel good knowing that it does include a 3 year warranty from Bugera. The tolex that covers the amp is thick with a nice grain pattern and a real leather handle. The amp is also has very low hiss even at high distortion levels which is great for players that don't use a noise gate. I own several other 100 watt guitar amp heads. Some that cost 3 times what this amp cost, but this has become my favorite and main amp. I am actually looking to sell off a few of those other amps because this amp can do what they do and more. Thanks to the Modern, Classic, Vintage switches on the 2 dirty channels I can get most any distortion tone required. This amp is everything I expected it to be and I'm very satisfied with the purchase of this amp.
