    I've read here on Talkbass all the Behringer threads there are. I've seen all the "controversy", and the opinions for and against.

    My question is:

    Are all of Behringer's products "copies"? Are any of their products original to them?

    I'm not interested in purchasing any new equipment right now, let alone Behringer's stuff - I'm just curious if anyone knew.

    Bring on the "Controversy!" :D

    I don't know. I do know that some of the "copies" are better than others and that it's something of a gamble (my experience). I've forsaken them personally, but there are quite a lot of people who use their stuff.

    Actually, I have a few simple questions to be answered. That's all.

    I'm mature enough to handle that - I'm not sure about everyone else though...

    I didn't bring one of them up because I'm not trying to argue ethics or anything else - I'm simply curious - That's all...

    I've always been one that was of the mindset that people should buy whatever they want, & if Behringers it, then by god, buy it.

    So, I actually test drove a 60watt Behringer combo the other day, because my son's in the market for a cheapo practice amp he can take back & forth between my house & his moms & his buddies he plays with.

    Truth be told, it was loud. But, I hated its sound. Plus, as I was playing, I kept hearing this nagging voice that I can only assume was/is Bob Lee transposed by my brain, "Behringer is evil. Behringer is evil". LOL...

    I dunno, I just felt dirty. Maybe I'm a victim of social engineering?
     
  8. as far as i know, the older behringer models (I.E. bx1200, and such combos) are not copies, but i will admit, the knew head looks suspiciously like ashdown to me, and the same thing with the cabs, only with hartke.
