I ordered and recieved a Behringer BDI21 from Music123. I know Behringer is not in high regard around here, especially the new effects, but I figured for $29.99 + $6 shipping is was worth a try. I've only fiddled with it for an hour or so, but it seems alright for the price. It fattens up and warms up the tone just like a Sansamp. The extra noise is minimal like the Sansamp, nothing excessive. The controls don't seem to have as much "minute" effect on the sound as the Sansamp, but it works. The drive knob doesn't seem to have get as dirty as the Sansamp, but enough for me. Overall it seems to do the job for my "hobbiest" needs. Yes, I had a Sansamp BDDI for a while so I do know about "the real deal" and I can compare the two. I ended up taking the Sansamp back for a refund because at the time I had a MM Sterling, and it didn't seem to work well with the active electronics of the Sterling.(too much hiss and signal). I will admit that the Sansamp is the "real deal" and superior to the Behringer, but the Behringer is so inexpensive and worth a try. It makes one wonder why the Sansamp is so expensive? I know, USA made, but so what? I drive a Toyota van after numerous attempts at driving Dodges and Chevys, both dissapointing. I'll let you know when the Behringer falls apart and stops working. C'mon for $29 its alright.
