fortunately for me already been burned by them enough times
seen first hand how they cheaped out cutting corners in circuit designs
and used crap components for mass manufacturing getting production costs way down
keep in mind this little factiod also
eye used to have old friend that worked for them
and he would send me free behringer gear for testing
speaker management systems and such
live sound application racks
hmmmm guess that would have made me beta tester for them or something
would take a free Behringer power amp yet wouldn't use it in live rig
probably instantly sell it on ebay for some real gear before it "expired"
attempting giving fair warning for people
something like mains you want proven longitudinal stress tested quality
nothing you want taking a crap shoot rolling dice if it's going to work when need it
Behringer test products just long enough for getting them into production and in the marketplace
if it powers up and works few times it's "good to go"
put it into production
they will figure out the design flaws after the fact for next version
maybe
next...
live and learn

Please keep it up.

All the negative bs is why I can pick them up so cheaply. :wink:
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.

good luck with that...
there is an obvious design flaw in the BEHRINGER iNUKE NU4-6000
we are attempting giving you warning
After a few uses, the amp died. Problem was power supply board. Doing some research on the web found that is a very common problem within iNuke series.
if you get one then make sure you "beef up" those components with higher quality/voltage specs
that may dramatically extend it's lifespan
otherwise expect it failing
or pick up a fucked up one for next to nothing
then swap those components in power supply with upgrade
we are merely giving you some feedback from common experiences with that behringer poweramp
or don't take any of it into consideration
that's your call
the reason you pick them up cheap is because they are built like shit
why not just buy some real gear?
get if you are starting out or something
Nevermind... my bad... get it now

The US600 pitch shifter harmonist (Boss PS-5 clone) is now discontinued.
The current thinking is that Behringer are shifting more and more of their pedal line to TC electronics...

much better w/ the actual video :P
even though won't personally ever buy one because don't "need" or want them
yet obviously other people will need "them" at lower Behringer prices
if they don't already own multiple Moogs
let's see how they hold up with long term use
have already contemplated your point regarding those machines....
plus they did prototype for pro one clone
good thing already have my old sequential

they will rape the inflated over saturated modular market at those prices...
even if they are SMT mass produced behringer junk
good
that needs happening IMO
not really any tempation
modular scene will be flooded with noobs
will keep doing DIY either way
because it's more personal satisfaction/expansion
plus it's not something that enslaves me
that's my perspective

I have had a Echo Machine and Reverb Machine for at least 4 years and an EQ for at least 2 years. I also have a Acoustic Modeler for like a year. They all work great and i've never had trouble except sometimes they won't turn on after pedals pushing through too hot of a signal.

As long as you aren't a table flipper and keep them in a decent case instead of a backpack, they'll hold up just fine.

have a tube ultragain mic100 that swapped 12ax7 with one from wurlitzer spectrasonics organ
free gear from behringer that rarely ever use yet it works when do
can sort of trust that it will probably work when need it
yet the behringer tube composer racks t1952 t1953 are all total shit broken from normal studio use
flimsy cheap knobs pots switches
boring lackluster shit and starved plate tube design sounds bleh
bad experience with them
plus paid for them with my own cash
they were same price as real gear that perform same fuctions
when pulled them apart for making them function
it was like WTF!
when actually saw how they designed them cut corners & literally "added weights"
so they felt like real rack gear
disgusted with behringer after that experience
glad your purchases from them are functional
not falling apart when flick a switch or break pot turn a knob
you get the picture
bottom line is use what ever works for you

My Echo Machine works better than my line 6 echo park.
Echo Machine, under $50 new
Line 6 Echo Park, $80 used..for all I know might have been sitting on the bottom of someone's pool.

What a coincidence, I happen to own a super fuzz myself (it just came naturally, gut feeling) and I don't regret it.
I think a lot of the hate comes from people looking at the price, build and clones and assuming it's Walmart quality. But in reality, they're pretty okay for a shoestring budget although I would still recommend getting a high-end pedal from Electro Harmonix or something.
