    ^ Here in Australia the gap between a dual rectifier and this will be infinitely more... Say this retails for $2,500AUD (the Bugera that is), that's still $2,000 cheaper than an actual Dual Rec is...

    I expect they will sell for half that here Mischa, Most likely $1000-$1300

    I love cheap amps :lol: Bugera is no exception. Can't WAIT. Will get TRIRECT :agreed:

    Although my Digitech/VHT rig now gets the most love I still love my $150 Crate Stealth :lol: Phenomenal sounding amp! Another oldie but goodie and cheapie is coming very soon (it's a secret)

    LordOVchaoS wants more cheap amps

    Where are they made?

    If they're handbuilt in the USA, then they *might* be able to compete with Mesa's quality.

    Oh men, bugera amps are made in China and they are budget amps, in all aspects. They have some nice clones out there, not as good as the original (specially its parts) but they do a very good job sounding loud :yesway:

    I did. Four Svetlana EL34 with Tungsol 12ax7s. My sound improved ten times upper than it was! I´am sure that i´am not going to sell it.

    If trirec is even better than 333xl for a sound, i´ll think of purchasing it.

    This is really cool, if they make them as close as the other ones they will definitely be worth it if the price is about the same.

    According to the site, they don't even have FCC approval to sell them in the US yet. So sometime after that, they should start shipping.

    Ah, gotcha, I completely forgot to see where you were from. :lol:

    You could probably start seeing them soon since Musikmesse ended.

    Example, there's a store not far from me selling both Peavey & Bugera.

    The JSX 120W is selling for $2995 AUD, the Bugera 333XL is $849 AUD...

    Good news for the Australian guys like myself on the forum, the Australian RRP has just been announced on these things;
    TriRec - $1499
    Magician - $1299

    Surprising, I would've expected that since the Magician is a combo, that it would've been more expensive.
    Also, note that this is RRP and knowing most of the Australian dealers around here (Melbourne) it'll look something like this;
    TriRec - $1200 - $1300
    Magician - $1100

    Don't take my word on that though, that's just going by what they normally take off Bugera's. (Y)

    So according to the RRP on the Bugera site for the 333XL compared to the actual price stores are selling them for, the Trirec should be about the $1200 if not a little less...

    Uh, yeah. You're not going to buy anything this complicated handbuilt in the US at that retail price point. Sheesh, Leon. :lol:
