"Best distortion/features for the price!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I expect to be satisfied with it until behringer comes out with another better distortion pedal.
Sound
The sounds are incredible, it leaves off where the super metal and the heavy metal are. It has both the mid and high controls with an added mid frequency control that allows you to cut through the mix or make it heavier. The distortion is heavy, in fact so heavy i only put at about 2 o'clock.
Features
With all the eq it has, its got the best features in Behringer's distortion range and at this price its hard to beat.
Ease of Use
Its easy to use but it takes a little bit of tweaking to find your favorite sound(What pedal doens't take tweaking anyways?)
Quality
It is sturdy as long as you don't stomp on it super hard but why would you do that anyways. It has lasted me a couple gigs now and its still good.
Value
Best for this price and more.
Manufacturer Support
Only had to talk with them once (for a Behringer multi fx-600) and they quickly switched it out for a new working pedal.
The Wow Factor
It adds color to my board so its pretty nice.
