Bugera employs Class-D amplifier technology to give you enormous power and incredible sonic performance in an easy-to-use, ultra-portable and lightweight package. Class-D amplification makes all the difference, offering the ultimate in energy efficiency and eliminating the need for heavy power supplies and massive heat sinks. This amazing technology makes it possible to design and build extremely-powerful products that are significantly lighter in weight than their traditional counterparts, while using less energy and protecting the environment.
Bass players love one thing – great tone, so Bugera set out to satisfy even the most-demanding tone seeker with the VEYRON TUBE’s well executed front end. The 3 x 12AX7 tube gain stage, in concert with the passive Baxandall Bass and Treble controls, plus the active tubedriven Mid EQ controls, delivers tone like only an authentic tube preamp amp can. Bugera's tube design operates at high voltages, providing this preamp with unheard of headroom to honor all of your playing dynamics; from your subtly-nuanced signature riff s and bass lines, to your most powerful, attention-grabbing solos. The VEYRON TUBE is all about tone, and this highly-versatile and responsive preamp provides an abundance of headroom for consistently crystal-clear and faithful sound reproduction, or just the right amount of tube grind in your tone – no matter what style of music your gig calls for.
STUDIO-QUALITY OPTICAL COMPRESSOR
The studio-grade optical compressor is based on classic and famous studio equipment from the 70’s. This totally transparent and musical compressor design allows your full dynamic range to shine through until your signal reaches the compression threshold, which is indicated by the highly visible status LED. The compressor increases sustain and gently smoothens out signal peaks, which is especially handy when you’re laying down the funk, à la slap and pop – or hammering home your most-aggressive metal lines. The resulting output level lets you unleash powerful and impact-laden bass lines, while still sitting right where you need to be in the mix!
What is known as Parallel_Compression or “New York” compression, is a dynamic range compression technique used as a secret weapon in high-end sound recording and mixing. Parallel compression is achieved by mixing an unprocessed “dry”, or lightly compressed, signal with a heavily compressed version of the same signal. Rather than bringing down the highest peaks for the purpose of dynamic gain reduction, it reduces the dynamic range by bringing up the softest sounds, adding audible detail. It is most often used on stereo percussion buses in recording and mixdown, on electric bass, and on vocals in recorded and live concert mixes.
Bugera has integrated parallel compression in their DYNAMIZER technology to provide you with tone and dynamics that are unheard of to date. By working directly with the amplifier, the DYNAMIZER technology adds incredible detail and powerful, fat punch, so your sound is always impeccable, whether you’re playing super-soft – or at the extreme volume levels that push a dB-meter to the max! DYNAMIZER allows you to take full advantage of every single Watt of your amplifier!
The ultimate goal with any bass amp is tonal flexibility. Bugera designed the VEYRON TUBE to satisfy the most-demanding bassist – you! The passive Bass and Treble Baxandall EQ circuit provides the sound and feel of traditional tube amps, while the active, tube-driven Mid control, working in tandem with a sophisticated 3-position mid-frequency switch, helps you easily dial-in any tone you can imagine. A handy Mute switch allows you to tune up silently, and the -15 dB input switch enables you to jump between passive and active basses in a flash.
