View Full Description
The Bugera V55HD Infinium not only exudes vintage sound and style, but possesses modern features that will launch your tone into the sonic stratosphere. The 55-watt, 2-channel vintage amp head is hand-built and impressively full-featured, loaded with 3 x 12AX7 preamp and 2 x 6L6 power tubes. This incredible boutique-style powerhouse gives you the flexibility of two independent channels and selectable reverb, both switchable via the included heavy duty foot switch. Ideally-suited for the studio, stage, practice room and concert hall, the Vintage V55HD Infinium really is an extraordinarily versatile tone-machine.
Classic All-Tube Design
Delivering sweetly-balanced harmonics and natural tube compression, the V55HD provides the warm distortion and break-up you've come to appreciate from those treasured vintage amplifiers from yesteryear. Featuring true Class-A technology with a 3 x 12AX7 front-end and 2 x 6L6 tube power stage, the Vintage V55HD Infinium can give you everything from sweetly-purring blues to mind-blowing crunch. The mighty 6L6 power tube is known for its crisp and driving tonal quality when pushed to the max, and the V55HD harnesses every ounce of that power to awesome effect.
Infinium Tube Life Multiplier Technology
The revolutionary Infinium Tube Life Multiplier Technology 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. Even when AC line voltages drop below nominal levels, Infinium also compensates for the effects of aging, automatically adjusting current levels to keep your tubes sounding as good as new.
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.
Add the perfect finishing touch to your signature sound with the Vintage V55 Infinium's high-definition Reverb. Adjustable via the dedicated control on the front panel, you can finally achieve any sound you desire – from a subtle touch to the cavernous, natural-sounding reverberation of a large arena.
Own The Tone
The Vintage V55HD Infinium has plenty of tone sculpting options, including an onboard 3-band Vintage EQ section (Bass, Mid, Treble) with Presence control. Its amazing tone-palette begins with the foot switchable, 2-channel (Clean and Lead) preamp, featuring Normal and Bright inputs to provide superb matching to your instruments tonal characteristics.
The output impedance selector allows you to match any 4, 8 or 16-Ohm speaker setup, such as our 112TS and 212TS cabinets. Plus, thanks to the V55HD’s Mode switch, which selects between Triode and Pentode operation, you can instantly jump from sweet and warm – to massively raucous high gain edge.
With a heavy-duty footswitch included for channel and reverb selection, you can enjoy easy and convenient control of your tone, right from your pedalboard - allowing your focus to remain on your performance.
