a lot of people talk shit about Behringer. but i think the super fuzz is a great pedal for noise making, what else is a really good behringer pedal for noise.

People will always talk shit on Behringer, it goes hand in hand with them building to lowest price point and basically just churning clones.

As I understand it, if the Behringer Super Fuzz is good for noise so too will the Boss Hyper Fuzz which appears to be the parent circuit.

In the field there appears to be a larger ratio of failures with their products. I say appears to be because I have not personally put this to the test, I do know short lifespan of the wares is not uncommon, and around these parts where the devices are deployed in more "abusive" situations it has more or less come to be expected. There are, obviously, always exceptions.

Not saying you can't get solid results from their product line, and with a nod to their ardent supporters: you can build a house using tools sourced only at Harbor Freight, but the experience of building with craft grade tools will often be vastly more enjoyable, and in the long run cheaper. Even if the end result is the same.

But for cheap sugar fix shit that will get you going right now or as appetizers they are certainly contenders - and they by no means have the monopoly on the built to lowest price point longevity crap shoot.

To bring the thread back around to the actual topic (sorry about that) I don't know. I'm generally an avoider. They have copped a lot of solid classic circuits though.

I have the super fuzz too, also the US600 & the EM600. They're all right, but not great.
I would only use them for noise.

If I wanted cheap gear, I'm more inclined to get a Danelectro. The knobs might fall off, but you can still use them.

Welcome to Trump's America :wall:
I think trying to quantify music is one of the biggest wastes of time in the world, like discussing your favourite colour or deity or pizza topping. People should realise that and get on with their life.

I personally prefer the Behringer DD400 over the Boss DD-3, granted the former isn't exactly a clone of the latter per se. I like how the pitch stays the same when adjusting delay time, compared to the DD-3's almost circuit bent-esque pitch adjustment sound which I found disappointing when I first bought it. The Behringer bass eq is also worth it for the price; it's a good eq for noise (but not really for anything else).

From my small collection - don't know if all these are still available


BOD1000 Bass Overdrive - very noisy
FX600 Digital Multi-FX - useful if on a low budget
DW400 Dynamic / Wah Human Voice - weird

And the pedalboard is good and cheap! As is the small mixer 502

The echo / delays nowhere near as good as Boss IMO...

I have a super fuzz, and distortion x but the BOD100 beats them for noise.
And a Echo Machine and Phaser Machine - but they seem not as good as Boss...
I had others...?

While i'm here you really should look at the Kord Mini Kaoss pad2 it has some very good effects, looper vocoder, excellent reverb and delays including reverse.. etc-and you can load a micro sd card with samples to play and mix with a line in. The inbult mic is hopeless though.
But with 100 effects and the XY pad for 'playing' its very versatile. Being battery powerd with the Micro SD you can play and distort stuff anywhere...

Anyone use the Ultra Metal/UM300?
I would expect that pedal to work well at noise making

yeah, they do the job, find a clone to love.

Also like the rackmount DSP and mixers, nice amps too. :mrgreen:
