    I was going to say "about time", then I saw the article points out Peavey started legal action in 2009.

        I didn't realize Behringer was ripping off other companies until I saw it on the Live Sound Forum a year or two ago. Those guys have been saying for years that Behringer is pulling this crap. I'm actually going to go over there and post this link, if it's not up already.

        EDIT: I'm back. There is a thread on it. Apparently Mackie and Roland have also sued Behringer, but either lost the case or settled out of court.

          Peavey filed a suit in 2009, but just now filed a batch of new suits, in response to Behringer's recent suit. I think those Jerries are going to find Hartley Peavey a very difficult opponent.

            You have a beef with Peavey?

            I can understand the anti-Behringer animus with all the reverse-engineering claims. I don't know of any reason for people to think ill of Peavey though.

              The Behringer-related entities currently involved in these suits include: Music Group Services LU SARL, a corporation currently located on Mauritius (an island off the coast of Madagascar); Music Group Services US, Inc., a Washington state corporation; Behringer International GmbH, a German corporation; Behringer Holdings (PTE) Ltd., a Singapore company; Red Chip Company Ltd., a British Virgin Islands corporation; Behringer USA Inc., a Washington state corporation; and Behringer Spezielle Studiotechnik GmbH, a German corporation.


              Tax havens? No wonder their stuff is so cheap.

                  Tax havens + reverse engineering other companies' designs + Chinese labor + cutting corners. Like the Walmart of musical equipment.

                    Weird. I have 4 guitars (T-60, Predator Strat, T-40 bass, and Fury bass, all USA), a 5-channel 130W PA amp, and an 8-channel mixing board (and used to own a second, bigger, mixer), and haven't had any problems to speak of.

                    The Strat tuners have a little play, but that's about the worst I could say of any of it, other than it's not sexy/cool, which has pretty much always been the case with Peavey, with the exception of their EVH-related gear.

                        The ads on the page change as the webpage is accessed-- could you post the pic you're seeing in your post here?

                          I still love my V22. Maybe in 20 years it will be considered a "lawsuit" era amp and I'll get double the current used price. Which should be around 50 bucks

                              It's a Fano, JM6. I like the look of their stuff.
