The Bugera V22 guitar amp is just too good to leave alone. Yes, it’s had its share of teething problems—the worst of which I believe have been sorted. Yes, it’s made in China. Yes the tube quality seems to be a crapshoot. But the build quality is better than what I’d expect at the price, and the sound is unique and just lovely. It’s a great buy.
One thing I’m not super jazzed about though is the amp’s reverb. I begin documenting my gripes below and start off in search of a solution.
