  • Amazing huh the guys who can't afford over priced amps that cost sooo much less to produce and get a 3 to 4x mark up are psyched because they might be able to get a tube amp that kicks ass without having to re-mortgage their houses and guys who are being snobbish getting upset about a cheap amp that may sound good and feel like they've been ripped off or afraid that their status amongst amp owners will have been revoked lmao too ****************in funny. Thanks for the reviews Norton now i'm looking forward to ordering a 333


    Lol, 3x to 4x markup? for a Mesa MkIV? actually its more like 10x or more. The PCB costs about $5 in volume of 5000 or more. The normal electronic components on there probably costs them another $5. If the pots are really good then maybe another few dollars for them. Then you have tubes and the transformer.

    I've had 3 pieces of Behringer equipment. 2 works great. the last one also worked great, one problem. the Truth monitors picked up a radio station without anything plugged into it except the power cord. Now to be fair, I live within a stone throw of, count them, 4, yes 4 giant radio towers with radio, TV, microwave, cell, and god knows what else on them.

    But still with proper shielding they should have been fine but they weren't so had to send them back. It sounded great, just like the reviews and just like some of the reviews, it picked up radio. This certainly wouldn't stop me from getting another piece of behringer though. Just not their active monitors. Their price point is awesome and if it works well then i keep it, if not send it back.

    • That's because Bugeras are a cheap ripoff of the 6505. I dunno about B-52's, but ValveKing's are turdpeices....

      • After looking at the pics of the inside of that amp, It's pretty much like every other peice of Behringer gear. Built like dog****************. If you were to keep it in your basement, and never move it, or replace the tubes, or turn the knobs very much, It might even last a long time. But if you plan on hauling that heap to shows.....

        Bring a backup, Or just get a REAL amp, and dont worry about it.

        I've said it before, and I'll say it again, Behringer is for kids who don't know any better, and can't afford anything good.

          Wow. That does not make you sound intelligent.

          • Wow. That does not make you sound intelligent.


            Why? I'm stating nothing but fact. I owned a Behringer mixer once (I didnt know any better) that was used for live shows. It lasted about 3 months before channels started going out in it. I took it to the local repair shop, and they told me that the circuit boards were so cheap, and flimsy that it was nearly possible to repair, and once the solder traces on the board lift, you're pretty much done. 3 channels out within the first year.

            I'm not saying anything that isnt true.... I stand by what I said before, It's for folks who dont know any better, or cant afford anything good.

            Nothing wrong with that, It's just fact.

            Hopefully guys considering Behringer junk will not make the mistake of buying it in the first place because guys like me shared their problems with it.

            Let me ask you this... If Behringer built airplanes, and they built them to the same quality standards that they built their audio gear, would you fly in it??

              • Im sure I am going to catch a lot of **************** for this one, but I think the lead tone sounds very similar to a Mark IV


                and THIS is why people shouldn't miss their AA meetings.

                  While I'll admit the Mark IV comparison is a bit much,
                  I bet you've never even heard a Bugera. oke:

                    you're wrong.. there's a sam ash full of them 3 blocks away from home. I've probably heard more models than you have.

                    They actually sound decent, but Mark IV???? please!!

                    • I just bumped up from solid state amps to this bugera 333xl .. I just got it yesterday and put about 8 or 9 hours on it so far .. my impression as it stands so far is that this is a beast that nor heaven nor hell can keep caged ..
                      the clean is crisp and flows nicely and the crunch can go anywhere from bluesy to earth rattling and the lead nice to .. i'm still tyring to find my sweet spot for it but that's another point to its very versatile in my opinion ..
                      the reverb sounds nice but that noise gate I don't hear any difference
                      this amp gets loud ..my ears are ringing right now and don't have it turned up no more than a quarter of the way on the volumes .. the foot switch is very convenient .. I'm playing with a schecter hellraiser c7 through it ...
                      the knobs are plastic and feel cheap but the way I'm seeing it so far is that for a tube amp of this statue to be sold for what it sells for some less important things like knobs need to be sacrificed for the price ... so that's my opinion on this amp and if something goes wrong I will post it ...
                      I'm 27 and have only been playing for a little over two years and loving it ..
                      I dont play in any bands ...i spend a few hours a day playing or practising ..
                      I like playing blues , metal , some types of country , and coming up with my own thing
                      artists I'd like to learn from are Zakk Wylde , Brad Paisly , Floyd etc...
                      just to give you an idea of how I play

                          I was impressed with how much ass the Behringer bass rigs had when I heard them. My point wasnt that they made a terrible sounding product, just that IME, they arent very road worthy, and you wouldnt see many, if any real gigging musicians using that stuff.

                          Not tryinng to put you on the spot, I'm just curious if you load that behringer out to gigs everyweekend? If not, and it stays at home most of the time, i would expect it to last quite a while... the stuff I've seen though just wasnt built to a standard to be loaded in, and out of cars, and bars all the time without something going wrong.
