    I'd advise you to do a search on this.

    I will now duck and cover...
     
  3. Welcome. Your best bet is to do a search. This topic is often "discussed" here.

    I've never played any Behringer products, but I'd advise you to be very specific about where you heard these wonderful comments, because people here have some very strong opinions about the way that Behringer does business.

    I've got it, for the money its good. but behringer has been known to copy products and reselling them for less. So if you're big on the morals...you may want to look for other stuff. If you're cheap like me, get it...

    I got a Kustom Groove head now, much much better than that behringer

    I would advise against buying anything made by Behringer. Their super cheap prices and one-off versions of other peoples' designs aren't as great of deals as they would appear. You can find much better gear for comparable prices if you look around. Ashdown, Peavey, Fender and Carvin all come to mind. Also, check out used markets. Great deals are there if you look close enough. If you don't value your soul and want to be damned straight to hell, buy Behringer, just don't post it here.

    From someone that has one and uses it on a regular basis.

    Pros- nice tones and ample power for most situations. Cost

    Cons- Ethics and possible reliabilty issues.

    Time and time again people respond to these B threads but few people have actually tried or use the products. Try for yourself and see if you like it. If not don't get it. If the ethics issues bother you don't get it. I don't believe in telling people how to spend their hard earned money. But for those that are hard up for gear and don't have the cash I would suggest try it out. You may be surprised. :bag:

    If it gets "your sound" then buy it. I own it and it works well. I bought mine used ($150 looked brand new, still in box) and it gets used everyday with no problems so far (7+ months). If you like how it sounds then it is for you. From a reliability stand point, I have not found anyone with a complaint about this head.
    As an owner of this product I can say that I have been very happy with it and would buy it again.

    Hard up for gear and not having cash are not viable excuses for buying Behringer's products. It has been said before....and much better.....but there are numerous companies that offer great gear at competitive prices.

    I play with a B BX3000T, through a WM 15 and a WM 2x10

    Compared to nothing, it sounds great. compared to the Ampeg BA115 combo I used before I got my stack... the B leaves a lot to be desired, which is why I just purchased the SWR 350X (waiting for delivery)

    That said, the B was cheap, and got me started with decent power. and I mean CHEAP

    I doubt that I'll ever buy a B product again, but it certainly served its purpose

    Actually, a better quesiton is what would be a viable excuse, because as worded it sounds like there would be one :)


    Out of curiousity then, what WOULD be a viable excuse?

    The company may be crappy but the products are good. Alot of everyday products are like this.

    Examples: Harley. man, awesome motorcycles. I have issues with how the company sells their product. Hence when I own a Harley it will be used so my money doesn't go to Harley, but it isn't going to stop me from owning one.
    Microsoft. How many of you are using Windows. You know what microsoft has done as a company and you still use Windows ?? You know how much software patents microsoft obtained with questionable business practices. But I still use it (but I use OS X and linux too).

    It sucks, but unfortunately that is life. You can either move on or let it bug you.

    I've heard them from HERE?

    I think it is funny people think that in this community. Look at how many pbass and jazz bass knockoffs there are that people suggest. Look at how many effects knockoffs there are that people suggest. There's a great example of products getting copied all the time. Many distortions are the same circuit design, just different values of componant parts.

    I'm getting a BX3000T because it is cheap. I'm just starting with bass, I don't want to spend much until I get into it.

    You know how this community has the expression "Got G.A.S.?" Well, I will get something better when that occurs.

    Hehe, funny note. In the motorcycle world we get CLAP. :smug: Chrome, Leather, And Parts.

    The Behringer head is a copy of the Ashdown. Sounds just as good for alot less. Never a problem. 149 bucks at zzsound!
    Then buy an 8-10 Legion Sound bottom from Steelsound for 300 bucks. The best amp out there for the money, sounds great, lows and highs. I love mine. Where else can you get all that power , and good sound for less???
