I have the Bugera 1960 classic I picked up for $167 shipped last spring, and have been doing the variac thing with it. I wanted it to use as a power amp for slaving but it flat out rocks on its own right.
I've just aquired this gem. However it has a problem with what I am hoping is only the "volume 1" pot. The amp seems to hiss, and doesn't achieve the gain it is supposed to. Plugged into the the bottom left hand input of the four..... it's a clean sounding amp on the other channels but has zero gain, to speak of. I don't know if that's normal either... the volume 1 pot seems to have very little resistance when turned up or down, opposed to all the other potentiometers. The rest are tight. I am trying to find this potentiometer online, I'm trying to figure out what it's rating is, 100-500k? Anyone know if I can just replace it? If so where can I find the part for this? Thanks!!
Bugera and Suhr. Pretty suspect version of Panama, but it is what it is
Here's an equally suspect version of Poundcake with the 5150, but it shows how nicely it works.
Man, your videos sound fantastic man! Based on the sounds you're getting, and a bunch of other videos I've watched/heard I ordered a 1960. I have ZERO experience with a plexi style amp. For the EVH thing how would you recommend setting the amp? I've tried the classic 'everything all the way' and it gets a bit muddy. If I back off the lows it helps. As far as I can tell running parallel gets me closest to the tone but not enough gain - the harmonics in Panama, for example, choke out...don't ring through. If I go to cascaded it gets me more gain but gets kinda flubby.
Any suggestions? Thank you in advance and kudos on the killer playing!
So I've had a couple hours to mess with my Bugera 1960 - I've never played through a Plexi type amp so there's definitely a steep learning curve. I think I'm liking it though.
Quick question - when I dial back the guitar's volume pot I'm hearing a bit of a hum. It comes through on this video - I dunno whether it's an A/C issue in my house (no other amp does it) or something in the amp - anyone got any ideas?
Video doesn't seem to be embedding - any idea what I'm doing wrong?
