Packing 2 pairs of 12AX7s, 550 watts, & extreme tone sculpting.

The Bugera BVP5500 begins with 2 selected pairs of 12AX7 preamp tubes with their own Drive control. When you want to rock the house, the BVP5500 brings the serious power with 550 clean, fan-cooled watts to the table. And since bassists don't 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 ultimate tone control.

For the non-purists, there's 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.

  • Powerful 550W tube bass amplifier head for classic sound and performance
  • 4 x 12AX7 tubes give you the ultimate sound and feel only tubes can provide
  • Tube Gain controls the dynamics and tonal response of the power amp to deliver anything from punchy to thick and compressed sounds
  • Ultra-musical 9-band graphic EQ for total frequency control
  • Dedicated Bass, Mid, Treble, and additional Mid frequency controls enable peerless sound shaping
  • Bright function for brilliant sound enhancement, even with heavy compression
  • Switchable Ultra Low and Ultra High function for ultimate tone
  • Dual footswitch for Mute and EQ functions included
  • Balanced XLR DI output for direct connection to your mixing console
  • Switchable Tuner output works either as a tuner connection or live monitor feed
  • Effects Loop for external effects (stompboxes, rack effects, etc.)
  • Power Amp input and Preamp output connectors allow you direct access to the power amp and a signal tap from the preamp section for even greater versatility
  • 3 speaker outputs: 2 x 1/4" jacks & a professional speaker connector (compatible with Neutrik Speakon connectors)
  • Integrated limiter and active temperature-controlled cooling system for ultimate protection
  • High-quality components and exceptionally rugged construction ensure long life

Bass Tone Machine


from Wichita, KS

Comments about Bugera BVP5500 550W Tube Bass Amplifier Head:

Bought this for a power upgrade from a 300 watt head. Boy does it move the air. Infinite tone control with tone controls and graphic eq. I have used a variety of gear since the late 1960's, you can't go wrong with this one. I'm using this with a single 15 and 2-10's on top. Good bottom end, definition, and punch. I read other review about lack of power, doa, whatever. This thing kicks butt.
