    You should ask "Who works for you?" instead

    Seriously: we don't want to say anything until we're closer to production. No one wants to see hype for something that's too many months away.

      Maybe this will encourage Danelectro to start using cases and switches that are a bit sturdier.


      +1 yeah, they're cool. leave 'em alone

                    Here are a couple of ripoff examples beyond the well known Mackie, POD and now Boss ripoffs. This is all behringer does.

What I'm concerned about is innovation, though. ...Behringer has a knack for ripping innovators off and selling cheap because they have little R & D built into their products... sowhat happens if they actually need to start building their own? Will they still be cheap? Can they make new products as innovative as EHX? Does that make Behringer any less scummy? No.


                        The Market will end up with 30 years old designs,
                        in new shiney, chinese boxes... (CHINEY ?).

                        After they tried to kill all, they`ll go down themselves...

                        An innovative, cool designer will refuse to work for a company like that, I bet...

                        Who wants the name "BOREINGER" on his designs?

                          anyone noticed, that the jacks of the B*ss clones
                          are not screwed to the chassis?

                            Wouldn't it be funny if this is just Namm food? I'm sure this has put the skids on many dealer that were looking at Boss/Roland/etc lines to carry..Get a franchise with Behringer,then the product gets put on the shelf..So much for that initial order..It wouldn't be the first time..Remember the Rack Mount Fender "Rivera" from the 80's..The Ibanez Koa Tele with dual humbucker/trem setter,and push/push coil pots? Maybe 2 of each ever made..

                            I'm not saying that is what is happening.Just food for thought...
                            It would not be funny....

                                Yup, that's the way to save money on production - if you can machine-solder everything to the pcb (jacks, switches, pots and all), you've saved a fortune in assembly. But you will lose a lot of reliability that way - in a Boss pedal, all the "moving" parts (jacks, switch and pots) are mounted separately from the main pcb, which protects it from shock damage and stress cracks. The only external part that is soldered directly to the pcb is the adapter jack (and sure enough, that is the part I find to have the highest failure rate).

                                The Behringer knock-offs will - to make room for the jacks - most likely use miniature SMD components, and if so modding will be more or less out of the question. Add to that the fact that it will probably break (or at least sustain damage) the first time the band's singer accidentally steps on the input cable... (they always do, don't they? It's either the singer or some drunk guy who decides to "sit in" with the band... ) Still, Danelectro managed to sell a whole heap of cheaply made pedals, so who knows?

                                However, I for one will not be touching any of these pedals, if they ever reach the market. Even if you set aside the ethics argument (Behringer's long history of ripping off other manufacturers), the quality (or lack thereof) will be more than enough to make me give these a wide berth...

                                Btw, I spent the afternoon at the music shop, and when I showed them the Behringer pedals, the first three words they all uttered was the thread title - word for word...
