OVERVIEW

Great rock tone with plenty of tube power.

When you think of classic British rock, the sound is undeniable. It’s the stuff dreams are made of, that sweet clean-crunch that spawned a generation of legendary players and the music that has stood the test of time. We packed all that iconic tone, and all the edgy character of a modern high-gain amp into a small, but powerful package – the T50 INFINIUM! We added a no-compromise post-phase-splitter, dual-VR Master Volume that lets you attenuate the signal right before the power tubes for full harmonic content at any level, and a huge output transformer for increased dynamic response and clarity. With four 12AX7 tubes and two EL34 power tubes, the T50 is capable of covering vast sonic territories with remarkable ease. A true 2-channel amplifier, the Clean and Lead channels are completely independent, and each has its own custom-tailored 3-band tone stack (Treble/Mid/Bass) for the ultimate in tone shaping.

The T50’s push-pull power section delivers 50 Watts of solid rock ‘n’ roll and features our revolutionary INFINIUM Tube Life Multiplier Technology – which not only controls your output tubes’ status, but can extend their lifespan by up to 20 times. The T50 INFINIUM also includes switchable Class-A and Class-AB operation, allowing you to choose Class-A for vintage silkiness, or Class AB for its raw and highly responsive power. It's topped off with a sweet-sounding, high-definition Reverb that lends an air of timelessness to your solo and rhythm parts, and a Phat switch to boost the sound character of your guitar playing even more. It all adds up to an all-tube amplifier with massive stage presence and unbridled versatility – the incredible T50 INFINIUM!

Classic All-Tube Design
The hand-selected 12AX7 tubes in T50 INFINIUM’s preamp provide an profusion of dynamic tone – for everything from grungy high-gain rock sounds over Britpop’s clean and crunchy goodness, to sweet and jazzy blues. We ship the T50 loaded with EL34 output tubes, which are typically used in high-end guitar amplifiers because of their punchy lows and greater distortion characteristics at lower power than other output tubes – and this beauty of an amp harnesses every last drop to awesome effect! A masterfully crafted all-tube amplifier, the T50 INFINIUM provides sweetly-balanced harmonics and natural tube compression, resulting in the warm distortion and break-up so typical of those beloved British amplifiers of yesteryear.

INFINIUM Tube Life Multiplier Technology
Years in the making, our INFINIUM Tube Life Multiplier Technology can extend the usable lifespan of your amplifier’s expensive power tubes by up to 20 times, saving you huge money and ensuring the integrity of your tone. How? This revolutionary circuit automatically and continuously monitors the performance of each output tube, and dynamically drives it towards the target operating point, for an evenly distributed load.

INFINIUM also compensates for the effects of aging, automatically adjusting current levels to keep your tubes sounding as good as new – even when AC line voltages drop below nominal levels. Similar technology has been used for decades in all-wheel drive cars, where systems modulate the power going to each wheel to improve traction. Just consider INFINIUM Series amps “4-wheel drive” for your guitar.

INFINIUM Series amps take all the guesswork out of tube replacement by illuminating an LED next to a tube that is reaching the end of its usable lifespan. And thanks to INFINIUM’s Auto-Bias design, you simply replace the indicated tube – without a trip to the repair shop, saving you even more money.

High-Definition Reverb
Adding to its impressive list of tone-shaping options, the T50 INFINIUM’s high-definition Reverb puts the perfect finishing touch on your signature sound. Adjustable via the dedicated front panel control, you can finally achieve any sound you desire – from a subtle touch to the cavernous, natural-sounding reverberation of a large arena.

Not for me......

Comments about Bugera T50 Infinium 50W Tube Guitar Amplifier Head:

I have a Bugera v22 HD which I love ,
So I figured why not the T50 a little more power a little smaller form factor.
Unfortunately this amp is not for me, it sounded very muffled like a wet blanket was over it.
I tried to various settings to clean it up a little bit but ,compared to my V22 the T50 was subpar at best...
I ended up returning it.

Comments about Bugera T50 Infinium 50W Tube Guitar Amplifier Head:

I've been playing professionally for over 30 years. I play all styles. And this is a very good sounding amp. I would have given it 3.5 stars if I could have. Listen it's not a Vox, Boogie or Marshall but your not paying that kind of money and you can dial in a nice tone. For under 300 you will not get a better head. This is my 2nd Bugera and I've never had an issue with either. The 'Chinese' stigma was developed by people who paid 3 grand for an amp and really want to believe that it was worth it. I didn't rate it higher because the description says modern high gain. Well, when I hear that I think that it has to get over the top. And it just misses getting over. If you want over the top, drive it with a nice distortion pedal. I bought this because I don't like taking my expensive stuff out of the house for jam sessions. This gets the job done. I'd take it over most of the micro heads that are out there. I personally don't like EL84 driven heads, they're fizzy. The EL34's in this have that british sounding marshally low-mid range. If you're looking for over the top gain, buy the 6262 or 333XL. Those get there in spades.

    I don't know I like this little amp alot of negative reviews about it. I dig that power switch on the back warms up the sound a little fat switch on the front does the same. For the money more than adequate sound. Reminds me of Peavey amps 10-15 years ago

    Comments about Bugera T50 Infinium 50W Tube Guitar Amplifier Head:

    Ok, I saw the poor reviews on MF but another site had like 65 reviews which averaged about 4. Took a chance, plugged into a 70th anniversity Celestion Egnator cabinet, plugged my guitar in, tubes warm, ready to go. First the clean channel, uh, ok, well I could not dial in an acceptable sound. Switched to the overdrive channel, gain on 3, hit a chord and barfed. You cannot get a bluesy sound at all. Even a low overdrive setting goes from zero to hard rock. Other tube amps in the 50 watt class cost triple but you get triple. Sorry Bugera, keep the beautiful amp cage, close them out and chalk this one up as a science experiment gone wrong.

    Comments about Bugera T50 Infinium 50W Tube Guitar Amplifier Head:

    I was looking for a tube amp head and a 112 cab. Like a lot of people I don't have a ton of money to spend, but I wanted something that would work for what I do. When I got the amp it worked and as advised a let the power tubes warm up before I used it. this is a list of features I really like. 1. A good built in reverb. 2. An effect loop. 3. A switch for 4,8 and 16 Ohm speakers. 4. Came with a foot switch that that controls the channels and turn the reverb on or off 5. Two channels. A clean and a dirty. 6. Responsive tone and volume knobs. 7. Four pre-amp and two power-amp tubes. 8. The Infinity self bias feature for changing tubes. 9. One of the best clean channels I've ever used on a tube amp. 10. Works very well with pedals and effects units. 11. A indicator in back to let you know if the tubes need to be replaced. 12. A great price for a 50 watt all tube amp. 13. Looks great, almost like a Vox Night Train(which I believe Bugera modeled this after). 14. Works extremely well with the Burgera 112TS cab. Great cab by the way. 15. Has a fat switch which is helpful for people using single coil pickups in their guitars. These are the thing I didn't care for. 1. A fairly bad dirty channel. It tends to get fizzy sounding when bring up the gain. 2. The Tone Cut Knob in my opinion is pretty much useless. It kill your tone and sounds like a wet blanket was put over the speaker or speakers. Maybe if you use it slightly I could see a use for it, but you're better off using your EQ and/or adding an EQ to your effects loop. 3. The stock tubes aren't that good, but then again you can't except much for an inexpensive tube amp. I love and enjoy playing different kinds of music, but I love my metal :). I put in a set of GT 6L6GEs, a EH 12AX7 in V1, a Tung Sol 12 AX7 in V2, a EH 12AX7 in V3 and a EH 12AX7 in V4. This cleaned up the fizzy sound and tightened up my tone, but you still need separate overdrive and compression to put this amp in modern metal territory.

    I really tried to like this amp. I have the V22HD which I love the Tone!!!
    This amp though sounds like a wet blanket is over it?? Tried a tube swap and 2 different cabs,one with a celestion 70/80 . and the other with Vintage 30 speaker. they both sounded awful with this amp.
    unable to really dial in any decent tones with any guitar ... just was not the tone i was looking for..
