I have had my Bugera V22 for a few years and love it. I purchased it used, it was made in 2009. I use it several times a week. No gigging, just playing in my house and practicing. I was considering a Fender Blues Jr. which is an amazing sounding amp. However, I came across the used Bugera V22 at my local Guitar Center and when I tried it, I was hooked on the sound. I certainly could not justify the extra $$ for Blues Jr. The reverb sounds awesome, the gain leaves a little to be desired so I also use a Boss Blues Driver 2 pedal instead. Overall, I think the V22 is great sounding and an unbeatable value. Enjoy it!
