"best guitar amp i've ever put my plug in"
ok, i've been playing for 13 years... i've played everything that costs from 20 bucks to 2000. when i bought this amp it was only because my exwife wouldn't let me spend the 700 i wanted to on a peavey, so we compromised and said i'd get the peavey later, once i got it, plugged my nashville tele into it, i was blown away! to h**l with the peavey! it was PERFECT the sound i've always dreamed of. and that was WITHOUT my processor, which collects dust now. just the tele and the amp, is all i need.
i swore i wasn't going to rate all 10's but it's awsome, the built in processor, the 2 independent chanels is like having 2 amps and an a/b switch. and if you're like me and learn by ear, the cd input is a godsend. and when recording, an rca cable and your recorder is all ya need.
Ease of Use:
takes a while to master all the awsome features, but i loved it so i didn't mind taking the to play around with it, and as i did, it only got better :-D. i play a lot of different styles of music so figuring out which combonations worked best for what took a while.
ahhh, the covering could have been better, i had a knob break off, but it was one i rarely used and it was my bass players fault!! slid it knob side down in the truck bed after a gig. but with that said, i've played MANY a gig with this amp, MANY! and it still sounds awsome. i had some jenson speakers in an old truck of mine so i knew they were awsome and wasn't proved wrong either. i've done a few recording sessions with it, with great results. all and all good quality, just the coverings coming off but that gives it character. also, it must be electronicaly sound cause i wish i had a dollar for every beer spilled down in it lol.
i have no idea, never used the support, but my bass player also lost my footswitch (old bass player, we finally had enough, lol... he was just a cluts and not that good anyway) so i'd like to find out how to order a new one, just too buisy i guess.
like i said, to h**l with the 700 peavey, for 250 bucks i'm blown away! throw another name on this amp and charge 1000 for it and people will still buy em. (just don't tell behringer i said that ;-))
The Wow Factor:
well... i WAS hessitant when i baught it. but that's just because of the name, if it said "mar*hall or pea*ey or anything else it would be way more appealling. but i've allways been brand name crazy, and usually get disapointed. (like in a cerain guitar maker that rhymes with smibson)
not only would i cry if i lost this amp, but i'd buy another one, somehow someway, as a matter of fact, i did once. i had to pawn it once and ended up loosing it to the pawn shop cause i couldn't afford to get it out at the time, but went back a week later and bought it for over twice what i pawned it for and almost what a new one costs. i'll never own another guitar amp. me and this amp are like peas and carrots. i've done rehearsals, large gigs, small gigs, recording, practice in my house alone, anything imaginable can be done with this amp. and i play everything from country to 80's hair metal and can find the right sound without an extra processor.
