    I am P.O'd.

    I got one of those Behringer BDI 21 bass drivers in late December. I've only used it perhaps 20 times, at home, never on a gig.

    Now the in and out jacks are worn out, wont hold the cord plugs tightly, and the thing won't even turn on. I just put a new battery in it, so its not a dead battery.

    Junk.

    Actually $31 plus tax.

    Surprised it didn't even last a couple of months of light use? You bet I'm surprised about that.

    Why do you think everyone hates Behringer so vehemently?

    The way I see it, a lot of times with music equipment you get what you pay for. I personally won't use Behringer equipment. I think there's a few reasons the pedals the Behringers try to knock off cost more, not just paying for a better brand name.

    Don't you mean "break it for you"? It'd do him a favor.

    OH, right... it broke itself already. :D

    I'd be willing to bet he rehouses it a la Toasted and never buys a Behringer product again.

    Yeah, I think you nailed it. Never buy another Behringer product again.

    I wanted the Sansamp BDDI you know, but that was $200, so I thought this would get me by for a while. And I guess it got me by for a while.:mad: But come on, how does this company even stay in business, if this is representative of their products' reliability? What kind of metal do they use in those jacks? Tin foil? Its not hard to build a jack that will last. There are millions of them in old guitars, amps & effects, and they seldom fail. Oh, but most companies don't use the old tried and true Switchcraft-type jacks nowadays. They use those plastic-housed piece-O-crap jacks just so they can attach it to a printed circuit board and save a precious few minutes of production time.

    Well, any chance that I just got a particularly bad one?

    Reason I ask is, I just called the store I bought it from and they offered to exchange it for a new one, no problem. He said they haven't had much trouble with these. I would rather just get store credit, maybe they will do that instead.

    I guess I could always use a set and a half of strings, or 1,237 guitar picks.

    I was thinking that maybe, with store credit, I would trade up to a Digitech Bass Squeeze compressor, but that pedal gets mixed reviews.
