    I never thought I'd buy a tremolo pedal, until they were 19 bucks. It's worth it if I use it for 1 part on 1 song. Thanks for the heads up.

      I guess it's to judge market or something
      Apparently they go in and out of stock all the time. I also read that these prices are the new prices for the time being - some form of relationship between Behringer and Sweetwater.

        Wonder what the total cost would be to re-house them in a proper enclosure so they're giggable instead of just disposable plastic prone to breaking.

Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy.

          I have never had a problem with any of my plastic pedals and I stomp pretty hard.

          EDIT: The H9 is an all-metal chassis.

            There’s one in every bunch. I’d buy Behringer pedals and warehouse them just to keep somebody from doing this.

              whats cool to do with pedals at this price is combine 4-5 pedals into one slightly custom larger box -lose the 1/4" inter connects all together and then slider switches to have signal chain order controls and to pull effects out all together from the chain -even add in a relay switches for clean engagement in the chain if you want or even some logic -and throw some heavy duty Carling switches to engage them

              I use to do that 30 years ago -4-5 effects in the footprint of 2 pedals

              -fun projects to do if your into it. -and a great way to get into customizing pedals

              if not into it, yeah just buy a bunch at that price.

                Are you sure about that? I would have sworn they were metal.
                The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.

                  Closer look I "think" they might be metal but a magnet doesn't cling to the pedal. The orange peel in the finish of the pedal suggests metal. I will say I know my BBE pedals are plastic and they are fine.

                    For what they cost they better be platinum..lol. Still amazing pedal regardless.

                      I've ordered nine Behringer pedals since this sale went on. Average ETA is May-something. I have three pedals here right now, one that is coming early next week, and five that are coming the thirty-second of whenever.

                      Did the price trigger the supply shortage, or is this just normal COVD-era trying to order a guitar thing from the Internet? They say that the right price for a product is where supply equals demand. Think the market can bear more than $19 for a pedal? Think they can ramp up production to cut lead time? Or is the lead time going to be part of the true cost of the low price?

                        Just ordered two more. Not in stock. The purple Overdrive/Distortion and the hot pink Heavy Distortion.

                          I already have an HM300, still in the box. I am a little disappointed in the comparison here. The Boss pedal blew it away, badly. I am hoping that the HM-2W will come out later this year and make this all a moot point. If I will buy a Waza Metal Zone, I will buy a Waza HM-2 with shocking alacrity.

                            I opened up my UM300 Ultra Metal today. I do not like the battery access. On the bright side, I will not be using it. I forgot to plug it in, so maybe next time. Next is the HM300.
