6 behringer pedals later.....

Post by wiss » Mon Jun 09, 2008 6:01 am

I didnt place this in the review section, I am sure someone may have a question or two.

1. Vintage Distortion~ not bad, good clone of the big muff I presume, I've never met a distortion pedal I've loved. Rather just razor blade a small cheap amp.

2. Vintage Phasor~ Good E.H. Small Stone clone worth the $25 bucks I paid

3. Vintage Bass Dual Dymamic Filter~ I am assuming this is a clone of the E.H. Bass Balls. Good on bass not much else.

4. Vintage Delay VD400~ I am going to assume Boss DM-2 clone, this is a very good delay pedal. Very short but very good, could have it followed by a dd-3 for longer delays if need be

5. Filter Machine FM600 ~ reminds of the maxon auto filter and ibanez auto filter. I think its has greater range than the maxon but not as "deep" or a bit "thinner"...$25 shipped, I really cant complain

6. Bass Synthesizer BSY600~ I paid $25.00 shipped, I did a side by side with the Boss SYB-5. The BSY600 has much more character and a lot more dirtier than the SYB-5. I sent the side by side to "Blue Monster" and he also felt the BSY600 was the better pedal.

h**l yes!

I agree with wiss that the VD400 is a great delay for the money. Sounds nothing like a digital delay, much more low-fi and characterful. The only real snag is the rather short delay time (300 ms), but for a $25 pedal can you really complain?

I still can't believe Behringer are pumping out real analogue pedals for nothing whilst BOSS are charging an arm and a leg for more and more digital emulations.

Heh, heh VD400, VD1, if Behringer ever puts out a drum machine they should call it The Clap. :lol:

I'd be curious to hear if anyone's tried Behringer's Vintage Time Machine; it's supposed to be a Memory Man clone.

Here are some of them.

I've also had good luck bartering with Ebay stores who have the "Buy It Now or Best Offer" option. Low-ball them to start and go from there; it might take a few e-mails back and forth, but you can frequently get a very good price.

Thanks,

Do these really sound good?
I never heard anything from beringer that sounded any good.
I might have to buy a few just to check it out. An analogue delay for that cheap is tempting.
