The Bugera BVP5500 is a classic 550-watt tube bass amplifier head with valve gain control and 9-band graphic EQ.

The BVP5500 begins with two selected pairs of 12AX7 preamp valves with their own Drive -control. Suhweet! When you want to rock the house you need serious power. The BVP5500 brings 550 of the cleanest fan-cooled watts you’ll ever hear — or feel.

And since bass players do not live by Watts alone, the BVP5500 is equipped with a stunning arsenal of tone-sculpting tools, including a 3-band EQ with sweepable mids, Ultra-High and Ultra-Low switches, and a 9-band graphic EQ for the ultimate in tone control.

For you non-purists, there is an Effects Loop and an Insert Channel with Preamp Out and Power Amp In connections for expanded versatility. Use the included footswitch to kill the signal to the amp, allowing you to tune in blissful silence and to activate/deactivate the graphic EQ.

Be gentle. This kind of power can go to your head!

Comments about Bugera BVP5500 Bass Amplifier Head:

This is my first tube amp. The amp itself is pretty straight forward when it comes to use but the knobs are very sensitive. When using the gain, one has to using it sparingly or the amp will distort severely. Once you get control of this, a person can have unlimited access to a multitude of tones. Several features that are awesome with this amp head are the high and low bass pass, the bright and passive selection, the mute switch and two different methods of EQ. One thing that I didn't expect with this amp was that it came with a foot switch. This is also very helpful because it will let you access the mute button and the different EQ's with your foot instead of having to run over and mute your amp.

Best amp ever

Comments about Bugera BVP5500 Bass Amplifier Head:

Had this amp for several months and the sound is just unbelievable. The valves make all the difference and the amp is built like a tank.
The manual is a but too short but who needs a manual anyway.
