    Any thoughts... anyone used one yet... in the uk you can get em for about £12.. ( $20 ish ) including delivery.. They do a Bass chorus, Bass O/D, Bass EQ, and a Bass Limiter.. all the same price.... :hyper:

    but on the other hand.. they are Behringer. :bag:

    I didn't think they'd been released yet - have you seen anywhere in the UK that's got them 'in stock' ??

    they have plastic casing, rather than metal cases like digitech and boss.....meaning they'll fall apart in no time
     
  8. i am interested to see how they stand up to the other brands...i won't buy them, but i'm still interested!

    You do realize laptops are plastic, so are some mutli-fx, it doesn't matter WHAT they're made out of, it matters how they're made.

    These guys sure don't make it easy do they? :D
     
  11. I'll agree with this, just like alot of rack cases are make out of plastic (SKB and Gator to name the better known), there are even weapons being used by military forces that are plastics

    However, it completelly depends on it, i doubt that behringer will use a high quality high density polymer, probably some molded polystyrene :p

    Exactly- and of the 5 items that were made them that I owned, all were junk. I'd steer clear of them, unless you are a hobbyist.

    If they are built like the new DI pedals, they will be a hard plastic shell on a metal chassis base.

    for $20 you could always buy one to try it, and if you don't like it - then chuck it. I think that's kind of the point with them. Not much of a loss really. $20? (Probably about $35 AU I guess) Hell, buy five of them and use the other 4 as door stops.

    Over here (Australia), Boss pedals retail for about 200 bucks or so (depending on the model of course). Similar story with Digitech. I can understand testing pedals, getting advice and taking your time for $200, but for $35? I reckon take a gamble. If you hate it, then throw it at your girlfriends mum next time she washes her clothes with yours.
     
  18. Yeah, for Au$35 i am tryin em out.. and here's a thought, don't step on them that hard! i mean, do you have to STOMP on your stompbox?

    Also i am going to compare the 'Vintage distortion' *cough* big muff copy *cough* to the real thing, however this behringer paper weight will set me back $70, hence the test first :p

    I know that Thomann ( www.thomann.de ) are already selling them, so im gunna order the bass chorus, bass EQ and the bass driver...
    As someone correctly pointed out.. for that price, if they dont work, i can vent my frustration by smashing them up.
