Oh ****************e: Peavey/Behringer Feud: it's ON
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.
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.
I've not had good experiences with Peavey products.
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.
