  1. A while ago I posted this poll...

    My paypal account has been frozen for a couple months, and I just got it working again, so I thought I'd celebrate - bought one of the Behringer Sansamp copies!

    Only just bought it...should be here tomorrow hopefully - I'll let ya know what I reckon to it!

    Glad to hear. I find them to sound surprisingly good considering the cheap components.

    I like my Muff clone, but it's not quite the real thing.
     
  3. cool - I'll let ya know more tomorrow!
     
  4. It arrived today - NICE!

    The actual footswitch itself IS a bit flimsy (I can see what people meant...but if your careful with it and don't stamp on it with anger it'll be fine!) Great SVT sound, the other presets are a bit so-so, but not TOO bad.

    Can't get the sound I've been after (god...IF ONLY IT HAD MID CONTROLS!) I've found a nice one with a little more distortion than I wanted, it'll do.

    I'd have no problems connecting it to the P.A. if my amp went down at a gig - it gives out a PROPER sound.

    It beats my Soundlab D.I. box hands down, but I don't think its QUITE as good as the pod (thats got mid controls...) - aside from that its a great pedal which'd be good for a basic "good" sound live or in the studio, just with not enough control over the tone.

    I suggested this to fourstringbliss (I think...):

    Use the acoustic DI to shape your basic sound (it's got a shiftable mid!), with blend to 0 so there's no tube emualtion. Then, either run that into the BDI or run the BDI into it (most likely the better option, to EQ the dist/od...). Use the BDI for it's presence and tube emualtion controls (drive/blend).

    That's the one advantage to Behringer stuff, the cost makes it cheap to combine multiple effects to get a sound! To use this as an example: The cost up here in the great white north to do that the Tech 21 way (BDDI -> Acoustic DI) would cost approx. $490 :eek: . With Behringer it's only $110 :D

    Hell, I've been looking to pick another Boss NS-2 ($110) and was so tempted to try out the Behringer one ($35) just cus it's soooo cheep!
     
  6. Cool...I'll have a go with myPOD as well first though I think...

    (I dunno...do you know the Beefheart "safe as milk" album? - the bass has a very different sound to what I've managed to get so far...does anyone know what bass the guy used on it? - I'm sure it wasnt a jazz...)
