      You notice a lot of people with the expensive amps get all flustered over these amps and the people with lower value amps or who have small spending budgets are high fiving each other.

      People, honestly who gives a flying ****************! Just buy amps that suit your taste regardless of the price tag and play them. oke:

        Well, look at peavey. Their Classic series are blatant ripoffs of Fenders amps.


        MASSIVE FAIL.

          Word has it that these amps are dropping dead after only a few hours of playing.

          They probably made the circuit boards even THINNER!

          They probably have a great sound, but I feel they have invented the first throwaway TUBE amp...Keep the tubes of course...

            I think Engl takes the honor for making the most expensive throwaway tube amp....

              exactly.

              every behringer product i have been around, just quits working after a short period of time. they are complete **************** and utterly useless.

                We have some Behr comps and gates in a club that I mix in, and we've had minimal issues in the 3 years they've been installed there. One comp gave up the ghost, but the other 7 channels and 8 channels of gate are still working.

                  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 , except the 333 has a lot more gain on tap and the EQ is very responsive.


                  Hmm. Kinda hard to take you seriously after that, especially if you are claiming that the Mark IV EQ is not very responsive (it's about as responsive as they come). Reminds me of HC reviewers who claim that their $350 Crate half-stack "totally blew away my buddy's Bogner at practice, he was like HOLY ****************!"

                  Nevertheless, I am interested in these amps, but for me even a fantastic-sounding amp is kinda worthless if it's threatening to break down at any given moment...

                    Obviously you haven't heard of the Crate TV50H. It was my first tube head ($300 for a 50 watt tube head! How can I pass this up?) back in the day, and it was so horrible I sold it after less than a week.

                      Zero problems with my V-Ampire head since the few years after I bought it used.

                      And of the couple people I know around my area who've owned a Mesa Rectifier for more than a few months have both experienced major problems with them. Any amp can have problems or not. Many manufacturers have also had problems with a first run of amps, i.e. the Carvin V-3 many people had to send back to get fixed whereas that issue is no longer occurring. I'm waiting for more people to have personal experience with them before judging anything other than the blatant Peavey ripoff scheme which does = lame, IMO.

                        our dual-band EQ and gate died after about a year. my brother's tech21 ripoff died within a year too.

                        i don't even want to buy the brands that are displayed next to the behringer stuff.

                          Apart from the tweed covering, no they aren't.


                          and the knobs, switches, coverings, layouts, tone.

                            It was PBR, so of course it was amazing. I know for a fact that the build quality and durability are top notch

                              Sorry, wasn't familiar with that one, probably by design...

                                Nope. Sorry. Not even CLOSE to the same circuit.

                                Oh noes - they both use chickenhead knobs? I guess both of my 18 watters and the 50 watt Plexi I'm working on are Fender copies because they use chickenhead knobs and Carling switches, too, right?
