Bugera made the 1990 Classic the first guitar amp head that switches between full-throttle pentode or more harmonic triode (60W) modes. The tube amp’s Clean and Lead channels have separate master Volume and Reverb controls. Bugera tossed in a dual-control footswitch others charge extra for. Using powerful economies of scale and advanced manufacturing, Bugera produced a value-priced amp head that puts biting British tone within range of anybody who ever lusted after it.
The 2-channel preamplifier design includes Bugera ECC83 and ECC83A preamp tubes for breathtaking punch and impressive gain. First-grade Bugera 5881 power tubes, offer comprehensive sound control. 2 integrated reverb effects and an effect loop with Volume control round off the Bugera 1990 amp head.
Bugera guitar amplifiers are handmade under stringent production guidelines to ensure long life and reliability. Each tube amp includes classic valve electronics, hard-wearing switches and potentiometers, high-quality transformers and—not to forget—the hand-selected, precision-matched Bugera tubes. And, owing to their careful construction and component assembly, Bugera 1990 Classic Tube Amp Heads stand up to the toughest demands on the road.
