BUGERA 5AR4 PREMIUM AND HAND-SELECTED RECTIFIER TUBE
Bugera premium-grade 5AR4 rectifier tubes are hand-selected for their characteristic power supply “sag”, which provides a more compressed, elastic sound and feel that is the “Holy Grail” sought by legions of guitarists. Our 5AR4 is the perfect choice for musicians who prefer a sound that is much tighter than what is typically available from stock power supply rectifier tubes. You still get all that beautiful, spongy and compressed feel, but the Bugera 5AR4’s faster response time also translates into more control – and tone that sings for days! It is simply one of the best rectifier tubes ever produced. Our state-of-the-art process begins with selecting only the finest tubes from all over the world. We then subject them to the most rigorous testing procedures, which are conducted in demanding “real-world” applications. Only about 10% pass the test and are given the Bugera name and stamp of approval. The rest are recycled responsibly.
