Classic All-Tube Design
The V22HD INFINIUM features true Class-A technology with a 3 x 12AX7 front-end and dual EL84 power stage. A masterfully crafted all-tube combo amplifier, the V22HD provides sweetly-balanced harmonics and natural tube compression, resulting in the warm distortion and break-up you’ve come to appreciate from those vintage megaliths of yesteryear – only in a much more portable and attractive package. The hand-selected12AX7 preamp tubes in the classic ‘60s-era preamp provides everything from sweetly-purring blues to mind - blowing crunch. Often employed in iconic British amplifiers, EL84 output tubes are loved for their crisp and chiming tonal quality – especially when you push them to the max.
INFINIUM Tube Life Multiplier
Technology years in the making, our INFINIUM Tube Life Multiplier Technology can extend the usable lifespan of your amplifier’s expensive power tubes by up to 20 times, saving you huge money and ensuring the integrity of your tone. How? This revolutionary circuit automatically and continuously monitors the performance of each output tube, and dynamically drives it towards the target operating point, for an evenly distributed load. INFINIUM also compensates for the effects of aging, automatically adjusting current levels to keep your tubes sounding as good as new – even when AC line voltages drop below nominal levels. Similar technology has been used for decades in all-wheel drive cars, where systems modulate the power going to each wheel to improve traction. Just consider INFINIUM as “4-wheel drive” for your guitar.
INFINIUM takes all the guesswork out of tube replacement by illuminating an LED next to a tube that is reaching the end of its usable lifespan. And thanks to INFINIUM’s Auto-Bias design, you simply replace the indicated tube without a trip to the repair shop – saving you even more money.
Available exclusively from Bugera, INFINIUM Tube Life Multiplier Technology is a major breakthrough in amplifier design and manufacture, providing incredible reliability for your stage performance and more consistent sound over the lifespan of your tubes. Since they are always operating at optimal levels, your output tubes perform more predictably and last much longer, thanks to Bugera’s marvelous INFINIUM Technology – saving you some serious money!
And you can experiment with a wide range of output tubes to create your own signature sound; you can even mix and match them to your heart’s content, thanks to the V22HD INFINIUM’s auto-biasing feature.
Adding to its impressive list of tone-shaping options, V22HD INFINIUM’s high-definition Reverb puts the perfect finishing touch to your signature sound. Adjustable via the dedicated control on the front panel, you can achieve any sound you desire, from a subtle touch – to the cavernous, natural-sounding reverberation of a large arena.
