    Pros - Excellent sound ..... useful controls ..... lightweight .... vintage sound in a very modern package .... tremendous headroom .... low temp operation .... heavy duty power .... quiet fan ....low noise ceiling ..... matches well to high or low output basses
    Cons - No 1/4 speaker jacks Speakon only ...... cheesy power cord
    I bought this Bugera Veyron BV1001T from Sweetwater based on a recommendation from a bassist I highly respect .... It has easily exceeded my expectations ... smooth controls ...very modern & attractive ... but the "SOUND" ...it changed my mind about class D amps ... real clarity ...richness ... potent power ... & headroom that rivals the best preamp/poweramp combinations.... I was skeptical because of Behringers reputation for flimsy build quality ... it appears to be a reverse engineered Genz-Benz Streamliner 900 ..... but with notable improvements!.... they did a good job of it!...with even more "juice" (power) .... 2000 watts? ...that maybe a bit overblown ...but it is very very powerful .... NO joke! ..... buy & try ...if its not your cup of tea send it back! ...I am KEEPING mine! ..... this thing KILLS! .... I have playing for a long time & I have (own & use) well known "benchmark" USA built amps ( Fender 800 PRO .. Ampeg SVT (Magnavox era)...SVT lll ... Acoustic 360 ...Carvin ..BBE/Crown preamp/poweramp combinations to compare with it ...side by side ... its a keeper! .... peace .... Lester "Lammy" Johnson

    Cons - No case
    Bugera is Behringer and I've always been a critic, but they've won me over with the Veyron amps. Does it really have 2000 watts? No way, that's peak watts under ideal lab conditions. But it definitely has enough booty to easily get the jobs done. I rarely get my amp up over a quarter of the way up. Granted, I'm using a killer cab, the BBC Tank 1215, but this amp still performs well. No glitches or hiccups yet, but I'd want to use this for a year before I conclusively say that it's reliability is rock solid.

    Pros - Very compact, very lightweight, huge power, very loud, tons of clean headroom, flexible tone controls, warm tube preamp, good balanced DI, footswitchable mute and fx loop
    Cons - None that I can tell yet
    The day I received it in the mail from Sweetwater I unboxed it and was pretty happy with the very compact size and mere 5 lbs in weight. So ok it's very small and light, that's good. And it's pretty sharp looking as well, if you ask me, with a red brushed metal chassis and modern looking faceplate and knobs. I'm thinking that if this thing has anything to show for the boastful 2,000 watt power rating, it should be worth the $500 price tag, at least.

    So I hooked it up to my 4x10 cab (4ohm) and switched it on. The fan started softly whirring and the tubes lit up nice and pretty in the front window.
    So I turned up the gain/volume as I started playing a few notes on my Modulus Q4 and I was immediately taken aback by the THUNDEROUS low end that came out. Seriously, Idk how much you want to believe the 2k watt rating from Bugera (Behringer) but... this thing gets LOUD, i can tell you. It can actually keep up with my SVT CL in sheer volume. I am truly surprised at the level of clear power it kicks out.

    Initially, I was a bit under enthused by the tonal shape with all knobs in the middle, I'm not gonna lie. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't BAD with all the eq knobs at noon, but it was a bit too BOOMY in the low end for me, though it had a pretty clean top end quality (pretty tight and snappy). It just wasn't getting the clear, detailed, definition that I seek from my tone. So I started making some eq adjustments as I compared each of my basses through it (active jazz, passive jazz, music man, modulus quantum, passiveprecision...). After a few minutes of fiddling, I eventually found that with the mid and treble knobs set at around 1 or 2 o'clock and the mid frequency set to the middle point (600hz) and the bass knob dropped down to around 9 o'clock, it puts out pretty much exactly the tone I want (it still has PLENTY of low end with the bass knob turneddown that far). There's a lot of room in between the settings I've found, for tailoring whatever tone you'd want, depending on your taste. Honestly it's quite flexible. Reminds me a lot of Genz Benz stuff to be honest. TONS of head room. No joke.

    You can definitely tell there's a warmth from the tubes in the preamp. They make it less cold sounding, as they do in most hybrid amps, so I'm pretty pleased with that aspect. Not just a "pretty glowing bulb" gimmick. The mosfet version of this amp (without the tubes and $100 less) is supposed to have a faster attack and more of a "quick punch" sound. I haven't tried that one but this one is pretty frickin punchy to me. Also, the tube pre can be overdriven quite nicely as it turns out. You have to take the - 15 active pad off in order to overload the preamp (keep the master volume low to start off) but when you do you can get a nice smooth "vintagey" distortion tone. So that's another point for the tube version.

    The 'balanced out' on this amp is also rather impressive. It's pretty clean sounding from what I can tell from the quick little test I did with my laptop and it's got a ground lift, pre/post EQ switch, and a line/mic level switch.

    The built in compression circuit is the last thing that I'll go into, as I see it as the least important part of the amp. That said, it's not as bad as any of the other on-board comps I've tried on other amps. It's actually quite clean and transparent until you begin to turn it up considerably, but "duh", right? I believe they claim that it mixes the clean signal with the compressed one so that it sounds moresmooth and organic. Idk, all I'll say is I'm pretty picky about compressors and even I could see myself using it (at least as a limiter) in certain circumstances. But it's just a nice feature to have available with the 3-level gain staging this amp has (pregain/volume/master).

    ALL IN ALL:
    This amp is ASTOUNDING as far as dollars/watts ratio. It has a clean, punchy sound that has a good element of tube warmth to it and it can get house-rattling loud! It's just a matter of finding your ideal EQ setting(s) andfiguring out how you want your gain staging set. Once you figure that out, you shouldn't have an issue setting your volume according to the situation, using the big Master knob. It's ONLY GOT SPEAKON JACKS and I feel that should be noted.

    The Bugera BV1001T is a heck of a contender if you are looking for an affordable yet powerful, feather-weight and compact, modern sounding amplifier. The only test left is the test of standing up to time and the rigors of the road and we'll just have to wait and see about that. But with the 3 year manufacturer warranty, you're probably pretty safe for the most part. And if this thing lasts through even a few years of heavy use, it will pay for itself several times over. And probably raise a few people's brows as well!

    I'm very pleased with my purchase so far. Well worth the modest price.

    I hope this helps some of you who have also been curious about these amps. I just HAD to try one. Glad I did.

      Eventually, you may be quite right. But at the price, it'll pay for itself if you get even semi regular paying gigs.
