Bugera TriRec Infinium Guitar Head at a Glance:
  • A ton of true tube tone
  • Infinium technology takes the hassle and expense out of tube tone
A ton of true tube tone

Don't let yourself get boxed in with one sound when you can have your pick of tones. With five 12AX7s, four 6L6s, a duo of tube rectifiers, and a silicone diode rectifier, you can dial in anything from warm crunch to face-searing metal tones and everything in between. Plus, you can get the all-important power amp "sag" that makes playing through a tube amp so expressive, thanks to Varipower technology. This lets you get maximum voltage through your tubes, even at bedroom- or apartment-friendly volumes.

Infinium technology takes the hassle and expense out of tube tone

Sweetwater guitarists agree, there's no tone like tube tone. But we also know that the cost involved in owning and maintaining a tube guitar amplifier can be prohibitive. Solid state amps have come a long way, but even the best amp model can't beat true tube tone, and Bugera's Infinium technology means no more compromising what you want. The Infinium circuit is designed to optimize the performance of your output tubes and distribute the load evenly between the tubes, giving you tonal integrity and reliability. By automatically adjusting current levels, aging tubes are compensated for and your tone retains that toasty, day one sound throughout its life. But tubes, by nature, do wear out and die - when you play an Infinium amp, you'll never worry. This exclusive technology allows you to grab whatever replacement tube you have on hand and get back to playing, there's no matching necessary. In fact, now you can mix and match tubes to create your very own signature sound without the hassle and expense of buying matched pairs. And because Infinium is a bit like having your own guitar amp tech with you on every gig, you get up to 20 times more life out of your tubes. When it is time to change one out, you'll know exactly where to go thanks to the life monitoring LED readout that keeps you in the know about your amp's health. Only Bugera makes the joy of owning and playing a tube amplifier this accessible and easy!

Love this head

The clean channel has plenty of headroom and the added ability to use it as a crunch channel is a bonus. The gain channels are basically identical. I use one as a rhythm channel and the other for lead. It has gain for days, even before I swapped out the stock EL6's for JJ EL34's and JJ 12AX7's. With the tube swap she's even better. I have no need to push the gain past 6-7 on either channel to achieve monster saturation. The EQ sectiona are VERY reaponsive as well, whicj is really nice to see. The Varipower is touchy, i generally run it at 50% in my studio when practicing with the Master Vol around 2..and it's LOUD. I've dialed it back lower with good results too, but with the JJ tubes it doesn't react the same as it did with the stock tubes. It fluctuates more. With the Bugera tubes it was very smooth dialing back the power. But it's far from being an issue. The only let down is the built in reverb. It's VERY subtle and not very musical. Even cranked to 10 it's subtle. But an EHX Holy Grail thru the effects loop fixed that. The clean tones are glassy and the gain tones are very Mesa Recto as expected, but I've been able to dial up any tone I like due to the very reaponsive EQ sections i mentioned earlier. The 3 differnt rectofier settings are a nice feature too. I haven't swappws out those tubes yet but hope to grab a set of Mesa tubes for it in the near future. Not much difference noticable with the stock tubes in any position, hope the tube swap makes a difference there, but the Bugera tubes are doing a very decent job in that section. Buy this amp, you will not be disappointed. But I highly suggest swapping out the stock tubes..I went with JJ EL34's because i wanted a bit more of a British tone, and a different tube than the stock 6L6's. I was torn between this one and the 333xl. Glad I chose the Trirec.

Awesome head

This thing is incredible. It easily fit in the same class as amp much more expensive. I was hesitant to buy it from some of the reviews. And now that I have it, I wouldn't trade it.
5/5

Great amp, I was blown away.

This amp is a face melter. I did my research. On you tube there's videos comparing this with a triple rectifier. The Bugera seems brighter. I love the blistering distortion that is why I got it. The surprise was the clean channel. This amp sounds very good clean. I am vey happy I got this amp.

TriRec Power

I bought this amp from my rep at Sweetwater last year before they were stocked... i was totally blown away when it arrived. It had great tones both on clean and distortion and I loved the controllability of the amp. My friend who has played on Mesas for the last 10 years came over and heard it... he was impressed... he told me that had he been aware of this amp before he bought his last Mesa... he would have saved himself some money and had a bigger and better sound.

Beats our Mesa/Boogie. WE LOVE THIS AMP.

I don't think there's any other value on the amp market like the Bugeras. In August we got a Bugera 1960 Infinium for my wife (at the ridiculous price of $400 for a modified Plexi circuit), and it's everything we hoped and more, but it's very very loud, even with the Post-phase-inverter master volume. We bought more ear plugs for the house, just to get full-on tone. At that point, I decided I'd probably own several Bugeras. I hope to get a BC30, since I'll never afford a real Matchless. We play metal daily and my first personal Bugera head absolutely had to be the TriRec Infinium. After listening to all the videos and clips posted online, I began to suspect that the TriRec doesn't have the flabby, indistinct bass bloom that the Boogie Rectifiers have always had, if you let the bass kick in (especially in smaller rooms). I just got my Trirec delivered, and sure enough,-- it's much crisper than our Rectifier and SimulClass heads, for "chunka-chunka" metal. It's Slayer-level baddass. It's got a useable reverb, and nice boost, EXCELLENT cleans, and a real tube rectifier with two tubes, which is switchable to solid state or both tube and solid state. The tube rectifier has a nicer feel than the Boogie recto, for my money. I'm pleased for this to be my go-to, daily head. The footswitch is very very nice, and very heavy-duty. There is a ~slight~ pop when switching channels, as other users have posted, but it's usually not loud and I'm already used to it. When the amp is turned on, it defaults to Channel One each time. The Varipower is not simply a master-volume or gain soak-- it is an interactive power-tube-saturator which you'll only enjoy if you've got the tubes dialed past "3" on the master volumes. The amp certainly delivers 2am apartment metal without waking the neighbors, by turning down both your channel master and the actual master volume-- but you'll only enjoy the Varipower feature if you turn it up just a little bit more than that. In other words, the amp can scream at low volumes no problem, but you won't get full-on saturated tubes with Varipower unless both the Master and the Varipower are up past 9 o'clock, closer to 10. (That's my experience with this one.) I have nothing bad to say. It's a tube monster head with as much gain as any metal amp I've every played through. It's got as much or more gain than any Recto, and I have one sitting next to it. I think I can coax slightly more distortion out of my (rack) Triaxis, but as far as a head-- I can't think of anything with more gain on tap. And the price is insanely good.
