    I like their effects and mixers, but everything else they make sucks in my opinion.

    Nothing wrong with Behringer. Like everyone company that sells gear, some products are hit or miss.

    Some people like wives/girlfriends, other people like whores. In the end its cheaper and less effort, but you know, you get dirty hands . . . :D

    I have been doing quite a bit of research as I am in the market for a new rig. Most of the comments that I have seen from actual users are positive. I compered specs on quite a few cabinets that came in the two 10' speaker one twiter/horn set up and I discovered that the Behringer cabs had frequency responses that were comparable to some of the more expensive brands.

    I will readily confess that I do not own any Behringer gear as of this post nor that I have tried any. That being said, as I am stuck purchasing from the web because I am overseas, and that all I can go by are product specs and user comments, It does not seem to me like Behringer makes bad gear, and no, I really do not care if their stuff is made in China. Anyone that owns a computer knows that virtually all computer parts are made in China these days and I know that I have had zero hardware malfunctions in my PC.

    1. Nobody cares that they are made in China, that's never been the argument. Most electronic components from every major manufacturer are made in China.

    2. Specs don't equate to quality of sound, ever. Besides, everyone measures specs differently, so it rarely matters.

    3. Behringer copies other people's designs (to whatever extent) and uses cheaper and inferior components to keep the price down, that's where the difference truly lies.

    Case in point.......

    Word from NAMM is that our buddies at behringer have come out with a whole bunch of "stompbox" pedal effects.........

    Now, that in itself isn't bad.....

    But, the pedals look EXACTLY like Roland Boss pedals.....they even say "check" by the little LED.

    What's the difference? Well, they are made of PLASTIC instead of cast metal, and the hinges for the pedal switch are a nasty looking little plastic dingus.

    Now, I'm going by reports here, but I did see a photo......

    I was also told that the Behringer guy claimed that the head guy at Roland told Uli Behringer that he "didn't mind" if Behringer copied them.....

    Heck, I don't know what to think of that one, but......

    In any case, there you have it, what everyone says about behringer, exhibited for all to see.

    Copies?................yep, no doubt about it, THESE are copies.

    Inferior materials?......yep, cheap plastic instead of die cast
    metal would surely qualify.



    Oh, at least they are cheap.....about $19 minimum advertised price. A couple lunches at Wendy's and there you are....almost disposable.
