NAMM 2013: BUGERA TRIREC INFINIUM Guitar Amp Now Shipping

PRESS RELEASE - The highly-anticipated  BUGERA TRIREC INFINIUM head is now shipping. Quantities of the boutique-style 100-Watt, 3-channel tube amp will hit the U.S. market first, followed immediately by worldwide distribution.

The TRIREC features BUGERA's revolutionary INFINIUM Tube Life Multiplier technology, which extends amplifier tube life by up to 20 times, and allows a variety in output tube configurations, all 6L6s, 6550s or EL34s - or the user can mix any combination to create their own signature tone. The TRIREC also has three preamp channels, each with a wide array of sonic options, internal reverb, adjustable and remote switchable boost, an FX loop and three selectable rectifier modes. A Varipower dial scales output power from 1 to 100 Watts, providing tube saturation sounds at low volume levels.

Realizing that guitarists want options when it comes to rectifier performance, BUGERA designed the TRIREC around an innovative rectifier mode selector. While most of today's amps feature solid-state rectifiers, many guitarists prefer tube-based rectifiers, known for their "sag" effect, which is desirable for building sound after initial impact. With the BUGERA TRIREC, both breeds of rectifiers are alive and well in the same amp. Users can choose Silicon Diodes for high power and tight bass, Tubes (2 x 5U4 tubes) for lower power and "sag," or a combination of the two called Tubes & Diodes for medium-powered operation spiked with equal parts of punch and vintage grace.

Also included is a heavy-duty 6-button footswitch for channel selection, Boost, Reverb and FX Loop, which doubles as MIDI IN/THRU for complete MIDI remote switching.

The BUGERA TRIREC INFINIUM is available through authorized US BUGERA dealers.
