Re: Need good amp head!
The Bugeras are pretty cool on a budget. Out of the box the 62-- sound competent and alot better than a b-52, but some of the guys around here that work at huge retail chains have bought them really cheap and modded them quite a bit. (tubes,bias,hardware,grilles)
and they are really pleased with the results. The stock 62-- can get a decent rock crunch and it has fairly good cleans, but i like the 333 better, i was told that the 62-- is a 5150,6505 clone and the 333 was a triple recto copy, but i really don't think they are the same animal.
A few people coming through the local stores have really ragged on the hardware and build quality of the early units (both the 6260 and the 333), but for the coin you can't be expecting perfection.
I'm gonna have mike bring his 6260 combo over since you mentioned it.
So give me an example of what you'd be playing and i'll give you a really honest opinion shortly.
And i am deff not the biggest line6 fan, but the spidervalve is really sweet for the price.
Stay away from the valveking and windsor heads though unless you crave sterility and not in your loins.
