    I'm fan of China peddow. I now have more good tone for less than the price of one boutique anything.

      Oh, the JHS guy. I like him.

      We all know the deal by now...

      1) Most are clones/work-a-likes of Boss pedals
      2) OMG, plastic stompbox!! Won't hold up to gigging! (No mentions on forums of anyone's Behringer pedal housing breaking)
      3) Made in China (like 99% of consumer electronics)

      Supposedly most of them sound very much like their Boss counterparts, which is what he's showing in the video. Cliff notes version: the analog pedals sound spot-on compared to their Boss counterparts, but the digital pedals don't sound exactly the same.

      I thought Behringer is phasing out their pedal line?

      This space left intentionally blank.

        I go by the rule of thumb, buy it right the first time and buy it once.
        If the Behringer pedals work for you, do it. They have a digital modeling tube amp for 24 bucks. You can afford to by 2 or 3 of them, which you may need to do.


        On that note, I'm not a pedal collector.

          @ gardo, I liked Behenger better.

              They may 'sound as good' [I had watched some of that video the other day out of curiosity, but he never discussed build quality issues...] but the switches, jacks, pots, leds, etc. are all el cheepie Chinese junque...a month of daily play will quickly kill the stomp switches. The guy owns TC Helicon for pete's sake, this is just ego gratification for him....

                Yeah, me too - the more I hear from him, the more impressed I am.

                I hadn't heard that.

                  I still haven't seen any of the Chinese companies making clones of the "boutique" stuff that I'm personally most interested in - but that often tends to be the more complex, large and expensive stuff like the Mutron Bi-Phase and the various Lovetone pedals. Not enough of a market for them I guess...

                      Me? None, however, some of the guys I mentored over the years, as well as my studio partner have owned or own Behringer units [including their 'Eurotrash' mixers],and they ask if the unit can be repaired. Most of them are so cheap to buy, there is no point in even opening them up. Most typical failure has been the stomp switch, I've seen at least six dead ones over the past five or so years...then pots...either 'collapsed' or scratchy to the point of just creating noise. I have a credo 'friends don't let friends buy Behringer'.
                      BTW, I love their high-end pro mixers like the X32...done a number of big stage gigs through them, but the low-end stuff is fakakta...

                        (thankfully) I'm not the sonic monument type and concern myself with credible drive tones. Towards that end I've found wondrous tones from several China companies covering Fender/Marshall/ and Dumble of all things. Happy as all the clams I play.

                          When I Was an asst GM to a chain of music stores in Washington state, I met with the Behringer rep. First thing he said, was "stay away from our guitar stuff." That told me a lot. (That WAS 11 years ago, so I am pretty sure their QC went up, or else they would be out of business.)

                          For the most part, Behringer's are pretty good clones of other makers work and ideas. their one mixer, a direct clone of the Mackie 1604. Sounded the same, same headroom, all the same bells and whistles.... EXCEPT reliability. For every 10 we got in the stores, 6 were defective in some way. And of the 4 that went out, 2 would come back a month later with various issues.
                          However, 25 bucks for a clone of a $250 vintage pedal.. Yeah, I'll get. I have a soldering iron and skill in replacing parts. Besides, I don't gig out anymore.

                          Some of my guitars: 64 or so Domino Beatle bass; 73 Ibanez 2398; 79 Epiphone Genesis; 79 Manoman; 99 Ric 330; 78 Gibson L6S; 95 Ibanez JS-700; 04 Samick Lasalle JZ3: 05 Ibanez AS73; 81 Paul Custom, 07 Gary Kramer Simulator T and about 50 others.

                            The last time I shopped for a pedal I looked at Behringer but passed because of the plastic case

                              I read that Behringa opted for plastic because of the sheer volume of their production. They also supply a good deal of their parts to the cloners. Most of the Cino stuff comes in sturdy metal boxes and when they say this or that clone, you get a pretty satisfying rendition albeit not exactly the sonic detail of the originals.
