I agree.I have an American standard sitting in a case. My pink 60's mexi gets more playtime.
I think it freaking rocks!
I'm with you Mr Y.....ain't gonna part with my V5 and V22 either!
Shane adds some pedals to the Bug5 and takes this lunchbox to a cookout...……..
I want one of those...
I have the first series Vintage 5 not sure how it differs from the Infinium series
I like mine. I want to get a Jensen C8r for it. Not sure tube upgrade would be worth the expense, but if i found something cheap I'd be interested in trying it. Takes pedals pretty good.
That’s very unique. You did an excellent job on the Tolex
Infinium series has some technology that extends the life of the tubes, and it also has an upgraded speaker, the Turbosound blue, as opposed to the original Vintage Series red.
I did the opposite. I upgraded the tubes to JJ's and it improved the tone and tightened up the breakup very nicely. The overdriven sound is more pleasing to the ears. The speaker I left the same because after hours of research I found that users said they did not think the speaker upgrade was noticeable enough, and found quite a few users who said the stock speaker sounded better than their upgrade. Bugera used to solely make speakers some time back, so they fly under the radar in that aspect with their combo's. Some think "stock = crap", but Bugera's have pretty good speakers.
I think my V5 speaker took quite a while to break in. I remember not thinking much of it at first, but after almost 2 years, it started sounding way better. Probably took that long to break it in because I rarely played it at higher volumes.
I'm glad you said that! The reviews I sourced were in favor of the speaker upgrade over the tube swap. Since you have first hand experience I think I'll b.o.l.o for a deal on tubes! Thanks!
I've had a V5 for a few years and it is a great little amp. I replaced the speaker with a Celestion. It is my go-to for quieter practice with really good sound.
Here’s a set for $27, same set I used. Last one in stock
Is the V5 an all tube amp?
I see a lot of great amps but I don't have a need or place in the line up for one.... I don't think.
Your success in school will determine how much fun your going to have in the future ! Study Hard - Squiers will be waiting for you - of that you can be sure ! ! !
Tru dat. I tell my students that often. They don't believe me. They think that they're going to be rich and famous by doing nothing.
Yes, all tube....one preamp and one power. Class A 5w (onboard attenuator can take it down to 1w or .1w)
