how big are the pedals? one thing i really hate about the danelecto minis is the knobs are so small and close together that it's hard to tweek them in real time.

The Behringer "Vintage Distortion" sounds really good, basically a Big Muff clone. RE-HE-HEALLY cheap, too. Like $20 kind of cheap...
Basically, everything they have is a rip-off of other established pedals, so they should all sound good. From what I understand, they are constantly in trouble with copyright infringement.

well they ripped off everything and used bad components cause IMHO they sound no way near the originals..

Behringer should wise up and do something like this!: http://musicthing.blogspot.com/2005/04/ ... nalog.html

What makes it such a great April Fool's joke is that it's so easy to believe, after Behringer's business ethics regarding Mackie and Boss...
irregardless, if they did, I'd definitely want to get my hands on a Synthi-A knockoff... :D

and it's probably not outside the realm of possibility to do it at that price with cheap Chinese labor.

maybe some cheap alternatives would atenuate the "vintage" craze. Although i imagine a behringer synth would have terrible construction.


(by terrible i mean weak/ fragile)

I got the vintage phase and I can't tell the difference when i have compared it to the smallstone... In fact they ended up getting sued over the similarity in appearance and circuit design... Only difference is the size of the circuit board and components... much smaller in the behringer than the E-H. Anywho... you can't go wrong for $25

i just got the octaver and ultra metal distortion the other day. the distortion is pretty nice with 4 pretty responsive knobs for tweeking. the octaver is a nice way to fatten sounds, but it produces a buzz/humming which is pretty annoying. i'm going to try and see if i can reduce this with a mixer.
heard the chorus/phaser/flanger modes on the multi fx pedal all sound the same.
the plastic case on these probably worry me a bit more than that of danelectro minis because they have more moving (plastic) parts. i think the dan mini cases are also a little thicker.

haha yeah correct...it sucks really hard...
i played around with it, and the only thing that is a bit good, is the pitch shifter in my feedback loop...the rest of the functions just blow...
and probably something's wrong with mine too, cause the led is flashing like mad, even if the pedal is off...very very very irritating...
