    Most of that Behringer stuff is disposable once it breaks, isn't it?

    I used to have that amplifier. Bearing in mind that it's a shameless riff on the analog modeling of Tech21 NYC, it sounds pretty good. The amp models are distinctive and useful. I never had any problems with mine, and I sold it because I'd accumulated too many amps and needed to thin the herd.

    I would imagine so looking at the price tag.

    Not too into big combos myself. I have Behringers blue sansamp pedal clone. It’s OK, nothing to write home about, except maybe that it has a ton of gain on tap.

    Looks like a lot of options on the back on the combo, that’s neat.

    My vote against would be that it’s not super small/versatile, like a small head and cab or small modeler and FRFR speaker

    Get it. I mean, it can't sound bad. You'd have to riff on it for that to happen.

    Behringer makes a great, inexpensive and powerful midi foot controller. Their mixers aren't bad, either. Dunno about the regular guitar products, though.

    Behringer isn't mostly knockoff dogsh*t like it once was 15-20 years ago -which is why this thread is even a thing.

    They've become a average to good option for great value -and even have a few stellar products

    -and more importantly offer essential options for beginning and cash strapped musicians.

    I'd say they have an important place in the market to keep usable tools and inspiration in the hands of musicians.

    That said, I don't own any -but have used it -as I'm mostly buying high end fx gear from the little guys.

    The only behringer piece of gear I have is a digital patch bay. It works, except when it doesn’t.

    I once found a guitar amp in the garbage, a Peavey Studio 110. It caught fire at the first gig I played it at.. But it was at the end of it, thank god.

    I've tried Behringer gear that was great, for the price (that is- not high-end stuff)-.

    And some Behringer stuff that was just cheaply made, and not very good.

    Best pick is to try out, and "check the feeling" of what you're going to buy,.

    And there is the knock about Beringer. The gear sounds fine it is the quality control. If you get a good unit you will have years of pleasure. If you get a lemon it will give you problems forever.
