    So, Norton, do you need or not a boost in front or 6260 (I've just ordered one) to get modern metal/hardcore ?

      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.




      Ive never had one problem with any Behringer product in 8 years or so.

          the whole behringer hate thing is over done here. ive seen plenty of pro-touring racks with behringer gear in them and plenty of big name clubs that have berhinger gear. i have a couple behringer rack pieces ive had for 5 or 6 years with no problem.

            Nice reviews. I think Behringer did a great job at marketing these things to the 15-25 year old metal heads who want high gainers on a small budget. I don't anybody other then that demo will buy these things.
            Please step back, you're standing on my reality.

            Great deals with: Overwhelmed987, kadrocker, sumphead, teetop

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


              LOL Classics are not remotely like any Fender I can think of, except maybe the Supersonic, which is like two years old, and only in functionality, not in sound at all.

                Most pro sound guys won't touch Behringer gear with a 10 foot pole. Doesn't make it bad stuff, but I can't count the # of riders I've seen with "No Behringer" in bold.

                  Is there any delay when switching amp channels with the footswitch like you get in some cheap amps?

                    The only Behringer product I own is a 6 channel passive mixer but it has been working flawlessly for 4 years now.

                      I've only heard of that happening (and experienced it) with Line 6, where the computer inside has to load up a new program. I can't think of any reason why it would happen in amps like these. I could be wrong though.

                          Like I said, I knew I was gonna catch **************** for it, but I didnt mean that the eq on the Bugera was more responsive than the MK IV. The MK IV is a great amp, I just dont think it is as great as a lot of folks on here feel it is. For me, the Bugera nor the MK IV would be a good fit, but the Bugera would be closer. On the MK IV , I tried and tried , but I couldnt get a satisfying mid- crunch tone. The high gain was great and the clean was damn near unbeatable, but everything in between I found to be average at best.


                          Well to each his own of course, but I couldn't disagree more. The crunch on the M4 is stunning to me, beautiful breakup. Actually makes me want to use it in some parts in songs where I used to use straight up clean. Also with the gain dialed up I can nail the perfect AC/DC tone, Iron Maiden, or many other pre-modern-gain tones. And yeah, the clean and the high gain are pure secks.

                          But yeah, still interested in trying this out. And if you'd rather get a 333 than a Mark IV, be my guest. You'll certainly save a lot of money.

                            ABSOLUTELY NOT!!! I doubt many people will run the gain on these past noon. They have TONS of gain.

                              Yes, stock 6L6 tubes on the Bugera cab. I also ran it through a couple of other cabs as well

                                Is the amp fizzy like a 5150? I heard SOMEONE's clips of it and it sounded like a fizz machine, but so did the 5150 he was comparing it with. Both of the 6505's I had weren't that fizzy at all.
