Product Description

Behringer's authentic V-Tone modeling technology recreates three of the most sought-after classic guitar amps, with three gain modes and three mic placements for a total of 27 possible configurations. You get a truckload of great amps in one convenient stomp box, allowing you to go from clean or crunch to super-fat distortion in a flash.

Features

- Analog guitar modeling preamp/stompbox with DI recording output
- This Behringer product has been designed to compete head to head with leading products on the market
- Authentic V-Tone modeling technology for 3 classic guitar amps, 3 gain modes and 3 mic placements for a total of 27 configurations. Easily achieve the most sought-after tube amp sounds from clean, crunch to super-fat distortion
- Provides a truckload of great amps in a single stomp box--simply choose your favourite sounds with a flick of a switch
- Precise level and drive control plus musical 2-band EQ for ultimate sound
- Dual DI mode for either direct recording output with speaker simulation or standard active direct injection box in bypass mode
- Output available on 1/4" TS or balanced, gold-plated XLR connectors
- Ground lift switch eliminates typical ground loop problems
- Runs on 9 V battery or the Behringer PSU-SB DC power supply (not included)
- High-quality components and exceptionally rugged construction ensure long life
- Conceived and designed by Behringer Germany

Extremely User-Friendly

Operation is simple; just choose the type of amp, from the smooth Calif (Californian), the bright, punchy Twed (Tweed), or the Brit (British) with its incredible sustain and aggressive mids. Then select the gain mode, CLN (clean), Hot or Hi G (high gain). Lastly, choose the mic placement from the three available selections. This feature is a Behringer exclusive, allowing you to place the "virtual mic" in any of three positions:

- (Off X)--At the edge of the speaker cone, producing a smoother, softer sound with less midrange content
- (CNTR)--Positioned at the center of the cone, for more upper mids and beefy low-end
- (CLSIC)--Slightly in front of the cabinet, for high midrange content with tons of definition

It's a Tone Thing

Behringer has also included a dedicated Drive control, for adjusting the amount of gain. This control effectively mimics the amount of push applied to the output stage of a tube amplifier, from a gentle nudge to full-out, tube-melting overdrive. Further tone shaping is provided by a highly musical 2-band EQ.

Versatility

The GDI21 can be used for direct recording output, with speaker simulation or, when used in bypass mode, as a superb active DI box. A 1/4" output jack is provided for connecting to your amp and the gold-plated, balanced XLR connector will link you cleanly to the front of house console. Ground loop problems are nonexistent, thanks to the onboard ground lift switch.

Value

Whether you use it on the stage or for recording, the Behringer V-Tone Guitar GDI21 is the ultimate choice for musicians seeking an extremely versatile array of time-tested, classic tones. With the GDI21, you get the sound of three classic guitar amps and a superb DI box, all for the price of a single stomp box!

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (9 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Does it's job, and does it well."
Sound: I am used to playing through a class A tube amp, but needed something for church to use my custom pedal board. I was pleasantly surprised with the sound I got from this box. Convincing tube amp sound through the PA. As a DI box, this is the best electric sound I've had playing through a PA system. Great clean sound was very easy to find. Feature: Not a lot of features, which is nice. Simple to get a good clean sound. I have boutique overdrive effects so I was looking for something clean. Simple tone controls. You can also get a nice overdriven sound with this but I preferred my pedals for that. Ease of Use: Very easy to use. Plug it in, dial in your sound, and go. Doesn't get much easier than that. Quality: This pedal is well made, but it is plastic. I knew that. Sound wise it compares to other similar pedals, but this is a third of the price. You get what you pay for. I leave this on the platform at church and it never moves. I don't think it would hold up to use on the road, but it's good for what I need it for and for what I paid for it. Seems like it will be reliable as long as it is taken care of. Value: For the price this can't be beat. You could spend a lot more on similar items that might be built better, but you'll pay for it. Manufacturer Support: I have never dealt with the company. From what I've heard I don't know that I will ever have to. The Wow Factor: This is just a practical addition to my set up. Patty Griffin and Emmylou Harris provide sex appeal for me, not equipment. Overall: Good piece of equipment, depending on how long it lasts will determine my overall satisfaction with this pedal. If it were lost or stolen I would have to get another one just for the sheer value and effectiveness of it for the price.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great unit for the money."
Sound: It's not bad at all. Tweed clean with the drive all the way down is the only setting that will actually do a truly clean setting. But it's a decent tweed sounding clean. Distortion sounds are useable and better then I expected. Feature: I love the XLR output and the quarter inch (non speaker simulated) output. Very cool. I wish other sans amp units would take note of this. Ease of Use: Pretty straight forward and self explanatory. If you can use an amp you can use this. Quality: Haven't had it long, but it's a bit more robust build quality then I would have expected, for the money. And for the money, if I get a year out of it, I'll be happy. Value: For the money this thing is great. It does make a bit of noise, but nothing unacceptable for a live situation. Great for a small budget studio. Or an apartment studio with no ability to use an amp. I use it for late night practice and recording without waking the whole neighborhood. Manufacturer Support: Never used it. Overall: Overall I'm very pleased with this unit. Especially considering the price I paid for it. Had I paid more I might not have been so happy with it though.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
