If you crave vintage look and boutique style, but don't have room to spare in your budget, then the Bugera V5 combo amp is for you.

Bugera V5 Combo Guitar Amplifier at a Glance:
3-way attenuator circuit lets you take your tone from the bedroom to the live stage
Whether you want to practice in your room, rock out at rehearsals, cover a coffeehouse gig, or take to the main stage, the Bugera V5 combo amp covers all of the bases. Five watts is the perfect power for typical bar gigs, but if you're practicing, it might still be too much. That's where the V5's 3-way power switch comes in handy. With the flick of a toggle, you can cut the V5's power to 1 or even .1 watts, perfect for rehearsal and recording. If, on the other hand, you need more volume, you can always take the V5's output and plug it into a an external cabinet.
Vintage style and classic '60s preamp design
To give you true vintage-style sound, Bugera gave their V5 combo amplifier a preamp circuit based on a classic '60s design. This lets you take the V5's all-tube tone from rockabilly crunch to heavy saturation. And to match the V5's signature sound, Bugera also gave it a 2-tone vinyl exterior, adding the boutique look you want to unique tube tone you'll love.
Onboard reverb adds depth and dimension to your tone
Adding to the V5's incredible tonal flexibility and multiple power modes is a fantastic onboard reverb. Found in many Bugera guitar amplifier models, this integrated reverb adds the perfect spacial dimension to your sound. A simple 1-knob control on the front of the V5 makes dialing in the perfect touch of reverb easy. You'll love playing along with this wonderfully responsive reverb effect.

Bugera V5 Combo Amp
by Larry Reed from Northern MichiganThis is a great little amp that I have had for 2 months. I have a vintage 1965 Fender Super Reverb and a 1973 Kustom tube combo along with a Line 6 Spider IV 75 amp. With all these amps at home if ... read more [+]find myself playing this one the most. The range of sounds that this little guy produces without having to blow everyone away with volume is amazing. With the attenuator switch on the back you get the same tube tones at .1 watts as with 5 watts. The distorted and crunch tones are there and so is some beautiful clean tones. Having amps with true spring reverb this amp compares very well. I sincerely love using this amp. close [-]

by Ron B from United StatesFirst of all, the V5 tends to sell out quickly....for a good reason. Incredible bang for the buck. Great bedroom/practice amp. I did upgrade with JJ tubes, but with only 2 tubes to deal with, experime... read more [+]nting will others will be easily doable. Amp breaks up nicely when you push it and YES you can get some sweet and controllable harmonic feedback and sustain. I actually took it to band practice and the crew was impressed by the tone, output and vintage looks of the V5. Also, plugging this into a bigger cab was amazing! This was a great upgrade from my Vox VT15 which was nice but had way too many features for my usage.
