  1. hi,
    have heard/seen that behringer is going to release small compact pedals based on the pedals from boss..
    you know, they also did so with the Line 6 Pod.
    look at this link,
    the behringer bass overdrive, just a different colour, but everything else as seen on the boss odb 3!


    in Austria they`re not out to buy yet, but comming for 2005

    and they will be very cheap. i lookied at an austrian online - music - store, there they will be sold with € 22!!!
  2. thats pretty sick...behringer couldn't even change the color. They are too lazy to even be sneaky about it. they are so blatent!

    At least they changed the position of a couple knobs. Pretty weak Behringer. :rolleyes:
  4. LOL.

    That is horrible.



    HAHAHA! Look at this:

  5. hey if they work, or at least if they work well (which i have no opinion concerning) and cost less, who cares who they copied?

    yeah, who cares about things like intellectual property, upholding patent laws, reverse engineering of current protected designs and other such things that are part of what keeps our economy alive

    hey in fact, lets all photocopy the next harry potter book and sell them for half price, and burn our mp3s and sell those too for 25% of the going rate
    </end sarcasm>

    Usually it takes half a page of posts to get to the real Behringer bashing. You guys got right out of the gate. :D

    I think they only changed the knobs to go from expensive stacked pots to cheap single pots......

    Heard rumors that these pedals will be $25 CDN.
  10. I was with you until the end sarcasm part. Honestly.

    I think we can believe this rumor, since it comes from the Behringer page. :)
  13. To be fair the pod copy (v-amp) sounds much different than a real pod. And no, it doesn't sound 'worse' or 'cheap'.

    These new pedals are pretty 'iffy'. I mean they could have put flames or written 'punk' on it. They look very generic right now.
  14. I dunno but my main problem with those stompboxes is that anything that is meant to be stepped on and at least lightly abused should not be made with cheap, easy breaking parts. We've all heard how the jacks are directly soldered onto the circuit board and so on.
    On the other hand, somtimes they do an allright job, their Mackie copied mixing boards have always done right by me.

    The guys who worked hard to design them who might be out of the job because someone stole their work and is making money off of it instead of them.

    Thats who.

    Oh, and any decent human being.

    I also don't like Behringer mainly beacause I don't like pedals assembled by little Chinese children in sweat shops.

    Now if they come up with something original and paid their workers a fair wage, maybe I'd concider them.
  17. You'Re from carinthia... that's cool, me too.

    Check out www.carinthian-rockforum.at.tf ... a great community for carinthian musicians.

    Word is Roland's lawyers has been in touch and these pedals will be 'delayed' - possibly indefinitely! (heard from music store employee, so take with grain of salt :) )
