Bugera V5 Infinium Features

Power Attenuator

The power attenuator is our favourite feature and lets you find the right sound and then switch the power from 5 watts to 1 watt or 0.1 watts. It’s a great feature that really lets you use the amp both in your home practice environment and louder practices and small venues.

Tube Life Monitoring

Both of the tubes have an LED light that signals when the tubes will need to be replaced.
In addition to monitoring, the amp includes Bugera’s Tube Life Multiplier technology, which keeps the tubes properly distributing the load and will actually extend the life of the tubes.

Digital Reverb Effect

The high definition reverb is fully adjustable with its own control, and lets you get a large variety of sounds.


The small amount of controls means a limited amount of distortion variations you can make to the basic sound.


We found the average price online for the Bugera V5 Infinium to be in line with other mid-price amps.

Overall Value

Being able to attenuate the power setting means this amp is a great choice for practicing quietly and switching to enough power to be heard at practice or small shows.
The Bugera V5 Infinium is a great quality tube sound at an affordable pricepoint.
