Sporting a gorgeous look and feel, the Bugera T5 INFINIUM serves up 5 beautiful, tube-soaked, Class-A Watts in all your favorite flavors and features INFINIUM Tube Life Multiplier Technology – which not only controls your output tube’s status, but can extend its lifespan by up to 20 times. A built-in 2-way Power Attenuator, allows you to achieve the ultimate sound at any volume, all the way down to 0.1 Watts – and the ultra easy-to-use vintage equalizer (Bass and Treble) will have you dialing up the tone of your dreams.
To top it all off there is a sweet-sounding, high-definition Reverb that lends an air of timelessness to your solo and rhythm parts, and a Phat switch to boost the sound character of your guitar playing even more. It all adds up to an all-tube amplifier with vintage styling and outrageous tone – the small but mighty T5 INFINIUM.
Classic All-Tube Design
The T5 INFINIUM features true Class-A technology with a 12AX7 front-end and an EL84 power stage. The handcrafted T5 provides sweetly-balanced harmonics and natural tube compression, resulting in the warm distortion and break-up you’ve come to love from those vintage megaliths of yesteryear – only in a much more portable and attractive package. The handselected 12AX7 preamp tube in T5’s classic ‘60s-era preamp provides everything from sweetly-purring blues to mind-blowing crunch. Often employed in British-style amplifi ers, the EL84 output tube is known for its crisp and chiming tonal quality, when pushed to the max, and the T5 harnesses that power via the built-in power attenuator – for the ultimate guitar tone at any volume level.
INFINIUM Tube Life Multiplier Technology
Years in the making, Bugera's INFINIUM Tube Life Multiplier Technology can extend the usable lifespan of your amplifier’s expensive power tubes by up to 20 times, saving you huge money and ensuring the integrity of your tone. How? This revolutionary circuit automatically and continuously monitors the performance of each output tube, and dynamically drives it towards the target operating point, for an evenly distributed load.
INFINIUM also compensates for the effects of aging, automatically adjusting current levels to keep your tubes sounding as good as new – even when AC line voltages drop below nominal levels. Similar technology has been used for decades in all-wheel drive cars, where systems modulate the power going to each wheel to improve traction. Just consider INFINIUM Series amps “4-wheel drive” for your guitar.
INFINIUM Series amps take all the guesswork out of tube replacement by illuminating an LED next to a tube that is reaching the end of its usable lifespan. And thanks to INFINIUM’s Auto-Bias design, you simply replace the indicated tube – without a trip to the repair shop, saving you even more money.
Adding to its impressive list of tone-shaping options, the T5’s high-definition Reverb puts the perfect finishing touch to your signature sound. Adjustable via the dedicated control on the front panel, you can finally achieve any sound you desire – from a subtle touch to the cavernous, natural-sounding reverberation of a large arena.
The convenient, built-in Power Attenuator allows you to operate the incredibly-tasty T5 at your choice of 5 Watts, 1 Watt, or even 0.1 of a Watt, so you get everything from sweet and sassy to maximum tube saturation at any volume level.
