The Bugera V5 Infinium 5-Watt Class-A Tube Amplifier Combo is designed for musicians who want a vintage tube sound with modern power management, vintage tone controls, and built-in reverb. The hand-built 5-watt amplifier is driven by a 12AX7 tube in the front-end preamplifier stage, an EL84 tube in the output stage, and powers an 8″ Turbosound speaker. The unit features Infinium Tube Life Multiplier technology that monitors the performance of the tubes and dynamically drives them to the target operating point to improve their lifespan by up to 20 times. The technology monitors the tubes and triggers an adjacent LED to indicate when a tube is in need of replacement.
The front panel of the unit features a 1/4″ instrument input, a gain knob, a vintage equalizer tone knob, a volume knob, and a dedicated reverb knob. The amplifier also features a built-in power attenuator that allows the unit to operate at 5W, 1W or 0.1W to enable the full range of tonality at any output level.
