Before you get started Your product was carefully packed at the factory to ensure safe transport. Nevertheless, if the box is damaged inspect the unit immediately for signs of damage. $$ If the unit is damaged please do NOT return it to us, but notify your dealer and the shipping company immediately; otherwise, claims for damage or replacement may not be granted. $$ Always use the original box to prevent damage during storage or transport. 4 Introduction Control elements Front panel of the BUGERA 333XL Front panel 1 The POWER switch is used to turn the power of the BUGERA amplifier on and off. 2 The STANDBY switch allows you to place the amp in STANDBY mode. This way the amp is idle, but the operational temperature of the valves is maintained (POWER switch turned on). Flick the STANDBY switch to change to the active mode (the above status light illuminates). !! 3 4 12 The BASS controls of the LEAD and CRUNCH channels adjust the lower frequency range (active shelving control for up to 15 dB boost/cut). 13 The GAIN control lets you determine the input level of the LEAD and CRUNCH channels (the CLEAN channel doesn’t feature a GAIN control). Turn the control to the right to increase the preamplifier’s distortion and sustain. $$ ATTENTION! TO AVOID DAMAGE TO YOUR AMP, NEVER USE THE BUGERA VALVE AMPLIFIER WITHOUT A LOUDSPEAKER CONNECTED! The MASTER control adjusts the volume level of the BUGERA. First, bring the levels of the amplifier’s three channels into line and only then specify the overall level with the MASTER control. Turn the control to the right to increase the volume; turn it to the left to reduce the volume. The PRESENCE control modifies the amp’s damping factor at high frequencies (only 333XL and 333XL212). This is used to fine-tune the high-frequency range of the speaker cabinet. Please note that extremely high GAIN and VOLUME settings in conjunction with high MASTER settings can make the combo models vibrate mechanically. This may occur when played at extremely high volume levels, which is seldom done. Should this be the case, adjust the GAIN and VOLUME settings so that the problem does not recur. 14 The XL switches of the LEAD and CRUNCH channels change the amplifier’s response at low frequencies (only 333XL and 333XL-212). It fattens up the tone by providing more low-end. 15 The LEAD switch activates the LEAD channel (switch glows red). 16 The CRUNCH switch activates the CRUNCH channel (switch glows yellow). 5 The REVERB control determines the amount of the built-in reverb effect. 17 The passive TREBLE control adjusts the upper frequency range of the CLEAN channel. 6 The REVERB switch activates the REVERB effect (switch glows yellow). 18 The passive MID control adjusts the mid frequency range of the CLEAN channel. 7 The FX LOOP/BOOST switch activates the FX LOOP and the BOOST function (switch glows green). 19 The passive BASS control adjusts the lower frequency range of the CLEAN channel. $$ You can also activate the FX LOOP with the supplied footswitch. Refer to „Footswitch“ for details. 20 The CLEAN switch activates the CLEAN channel (switch glows red). 8 9 The NOISE GATE control determines the effect the NOISE GATE filter has on the LEAD and CRUNCH channels (only 333XL and 333XL-212). The further you turn the control to the right, the more noise is reduced. At low GAIN settings, the NOISE GATE shouldn’t be set too high or else the tones’ sustain is affected. The VOLUME controls adjust the volume levels of all three amplifier channels. 10 The TREBLE controls of the LEAD and CRUNCH channels adjust the upper frequency range (active shelving control for up to 15 dB boost/cut). $$ You can activate the three channels with the supplied footswitch. Refer to „Footswitch“ for details. 21 The HIGH GAIN input (333 and 333-212: INPUT) is 6 dB louder than the LOW GAIN input and is used for most electric guitars. 22 The LOW GAIN input is used for instruments with an extremely high output level which could distort the HIGH GAIN input (only 333XL and 333XL-212). $$ The HIGH GAIN and LOW GAIN connectors have identical sensitivity when used at the same time (both with LOW GAIN sensitivity). 11 The MID controls of the LEAD and CRUNCH channels adjust the mid-frequency range (active peak/ notch control for up to 15 dB boost/cut). Control elements 5 en Rear panel of the BUGERA 333 Rear panel !! CAUTION! Hot! Risk of injury! During use, the valves get very hot and high surface temperatures may be reached at the rear of this unit. Avoid touching the controls and connectors on the rear panel during use. To avoid accidental contact with hot surfaces, place the rear panel so that it faces a wall. 23 The calibrated LEVEL control determines the signal level sent to an external effects unit or any other signal processor (0 – 10). Turn the control to the right to increase the amount of signal information, and turn it to the left to decrease the amount. It makes sense to select a high setting in order to get a possibly noise-free signal. The FX Send Level and FX Return Level (26) controls should always be set oppositely. For example, to reach a 0 dB working level when the FX Send Level is set low, the FX Return Level (26) needs to be set high accordingly. On the other hand, if you wish to boost the volume level, turn both controls to a higher setting. 24 The SEND output is used to connect a shielded ¼" mono jack cable to the input of an external effects unit. en 25 The RETURN input is used to connect a shielded ¼" mono jack cable to the output of an external effects unit. 26 The calibrated LEVEL control determines the signal level returned from an external effects unit or any other signal processor (0 – 10). Turn the control to the right to increase the amount of signal information, and turn it to the left to decrease the amount. To achieve a possibly noise-free signal, set the FX Send Level (23) relatively high and the FX Return Level relatively low. A BOOST effect can be achieved with this LEVEL control when the RETURN input isn’t being used. Increase the volume level with this control plus activate the FX LOOP with the footswitch in order to make the guitar signal louder. This function is great for highlighting solos. 29 The IMPEDANCE switch lets you specify the loudspeaker impedance. Always apply the value that is identical to the impedance of the used speaker cabinet. When connecting two cabinets with the same impedance, the switch should be set to half the value of one of the cabinets. For example, two 16-Ohm cabinets would require an 8-Ohm setting, while two 8-Ohm cabinets need to be set to the minimum impedance of 4 Ohms. Please also read „Wiring the BUGERA“. !! 30 Both the paralleled LOUDSPEAKER outputs (¼" mono jacks) are used to connect the speaker cabinet(s). The minimum impedance is 4 Ohms. The IMPEDANCE switch should always be set to match the impedance of the used speaker cabinet. !! ATTENTION! TO AVOID DAMAGE TO YOUR AMP, NEVER USE THE BUGERA VALVE AMPLIFIER WITHOUT A LOUDSPEAKER CONNECTED! 31 This is the LEVEL control that specifies the signal level for the OUT (32) in order to adjust the level of a second amplifier and loudspeaker system connected over the OUT to the LOUDSPEAKER outputs (30) of one or more connected speaker cabinets. 32 The OUT provides a preamp signal in order to feed the signal to a second amplifier and loudspeaker system, for example. ** 33 WARNING: ONLY REPLACE THE FUSE WHEN THE MAINS CABLE HAS BEEN DISCONNECTED! The FUSE is found in the fuse holder. If the fuse is blown, it needs to be replaced with a fuse of the same kind by all means. Otherwise, the unit could seriously be damaged, in which case the warranty is void. If the fuse is blown repeatedly, you should take the unit to a qualified service technician. ** 27 The 7-pin FOOTSW(itch) connector is provided to connect to the supplied BUGERA FSB104 footswitch. Please be sure to connect the cables before switching on the amplifier. Refer to „Footswitch“ for details. 34 The IEC MAINS connector is used to connect the mains cable that has the appropriate voltage ratings for your country (included). At all times, make the connections to the amplifier before plugging the cable into a power outlet. 28 The DAMPING switch lets you specify the damping factor of the BUGERA (only 333 and 333-212). The term „damping“ refers to a feature of the amplifier that affects the signal’s fade-out phase. A high damping factor (HIGH) makes the signal fade out quicker than a low factor (LOW). Changes to the damping factor automatically result in level alterations which should be re-adjusted. 35 This is the SERIAL NUMBER of the amplifier. 6 Control elements Inside the BUGERA 333 Footswitch Inside the BUGERA ** DANGER! High voltage! Risk of death! High voltages of up to 500 V DC may be present inside the casing for long periods after being disconnected from the mains.

Its LED illuminates when the channel is active. 40 The FX LOOP switch activates the FX LOOP and the BOOST function. Its LED illuminates when the FX LOOP is active. The parts inside the amplifier operate at high voltages and high temperatures. To avoid damage and injury that results from fire or electric shock, do not drop or spill anything into the unit’s casing. Instructions for qualified service personnel only Remove the backside of the amplifier’s casing to get to the valves and the control elements. 41 These are the sockets for the 12AX7A/B/C preamp valves. 42 These are the sockets for the 6L6 and EL34 power amp valves. Please take care that the BIAS SELECTswitch (43) is set correctly. The models 333 and 333-212 are supplied with 6L6GC power amp valves when it leaves the factory. The models 333XL and 333XL-212 incorporate EL34 power amp valves. 43 The BIAS SELECT switch allows the amplifier to optimally adapt to the used valves (6L6 or EL34). ** 44 The BIAS TEST connector lets you connect a voltmeter in order to measure the power amp valves (bias adjustment). Make sure that the voltmeter is set to direct current (DC). 45 The BIAS ADJUST control is used to make the bias-adjustment. $$ Replacing the power amp valves also requires bias adjustment. You should always use sets of four matched valves. The valves of the BUGERA Series are ideal for this purpose. Control elements 7 en !! CAUTION: WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT BIAS ADJUSTMENTS BE CARRIED OUT BY QUALIFIED PERSONNEL! Wiring the BUGERA !! CAUTION! !! ATTENTION! TO AVOID DAMAGE TO YOUR AMP, NEVER USE THE BUGERA VALVE AMPLIFIER WITHOUT A LOUDSPEAKER CONNECTED! Hot! Risk of injury! During use, the valves will get very hot and high surface temperatures may be reached at the rear of this unit. To avoid burning yourself, make all connections while the unit is still cold. The BUGERA amplifier has two paralleled LOUDSPEAKER outputs which are used to connect one or two speaker cabinets. If you only connect one speaker cabinet, be sure that the IMPEDANCE switch is set to match the impedance of the connected cabinet. BUGERA head with a speaker cabinet If you want to connect two speaker cabinets, both cabinets should have to the same impedance. Be sure to have set the IMPEDANCE switch correctly. In this case, set it to half the value of one of the cabinets. When using two 16-Ohm cabinets, the switch therefore needs to be set to 8 Ohms; and with two 8-Ohm cabinets, set it to the minimum impedance of 4 Ohms. CAUTION: The loudspeakers in the combos are connected in series. This results in an impedance of 16 Ohms. en Impedances 8 Wiring the BUGERA The following figure shows a setup of the 333XL-212 together with an external effects unit connected over the FX LOOP. And the LINE OUT is connected to the line input of a mixer in order to send the signal to a recording device. The LEVEL control of the LINE OUT lets you adjust the output level of the BUGERA to the input sensitivity of the mixer. In addition, the speaker signal of the BUGERA is picked up by a microphone and is fed to the microphone input of the mixer. This way you get a second guitar signal which then can be amplified by a PA system and/or can be recorded as well.
