    I bought the Bass V-amp 3 years ago. Since then I have reviewed several similar products extensively and have concluded that the V-amp is probably the best product for the money based on features, sound, construction and overall usability. The downsides I have experienced were a memory loss on several occasions. This was remedied by simply replacing the battery and making sure that the battery holder is tight with good contact to prevent the battery from shifting during occasional bumps. For the past 30 years I have owned every gadget from stomp and rack units to bass guitar synthesizers, so what I look for in a device like this are: clean sound, a versatile tone shaping capability, programmability and very important?(MIDI) all in a rack mounted package. I wish more companies would follow that format? some do but not much. I also bought the FCB-1010 for the V-Bass and it makes the unit perform very well. Another thing buyers may want to investigate is that there are user websites that discuss the V-Bass exclusively with a lot of great tips. Bottom line, a great unit even at twice the price.

    Looking back, I don't know why I thought buying this was a good idea. The plan was to record via its S/PDIF out directly to my computer interface. Well, I've tried many different set-ups and tweaked the settings ad nauseum and could never get a good sound. I'm much better off recording the bass dry and processing it after the fact in my DAW. I probably should have tried that first, but alas I mistakenly thought that this could potentially be a really good recording tool.

    Comments about Behringer Bass V-AMP PRO Rack Modeling Preamp:

    You want "That" tone, whatever it is? It's in there. You may have to work for it though. This thing is amazingly versatile, whether you are looking for Jamerson's Motown sound, Lemmy's roar, Ellefson's punch or your own unique tone, it can do it. If you want to find it, get the UnoProm, Behringer's editing software and the FCB1010 or you'll hate yourself trying to get there.

    This unit really shines in it's amp and cabinet sims, which are impeccable, but like all MFX's/Preamps it must be used properly. The real reason people hate these types of units is that they don't know how to properly use them. If you plug this thing straight into a bass amp you are going to think you wasted your money. You really need to run it into a full-range, flat response amp and cabinet setup. Once you amplify it's output properly you'll never settle for a single voiced amp rig again. With the range of amp and cabinet sims this unit has inside you can play for days, finding useful setup after useful setup. Of course not all will be ones you want to use but they are all good assuming you use some common sense. Running a 10 watt combo into an 8 X 10 cabinet is a recipe for tonal disaster, likewise running an SVT head into a single 8" cabinet isn't going to yield very good results. This thing is going to give you best results if you are looking for tones generated by amps built between the mid-sixties through early 90's. I use it to generate tones suitable for speed metal/thrash for my own purposes and for playing with a warm, classic tone for playing at church. Going out through the XLR into the mains into the PA (after setting up the output properly of course) yields phenomenal results.

    The effects are certainly passable but not jaw-dropping. I use the chorus/delay very lightly to good effect, but a very little goes a very long way.

    I use this preamp in a rack with a power conditioner, a BBE 362 and a variety of basses with both active and passive pickups.

    All in all this rig is worth many times its price tag, but understand you are going to have to put in some work to get the results this thing is capable of. Save yourself some agony and go to talkbass dot com and hunt down CharlieC's threads on configuring this beast and you will be well rewarded. Get it today, thank me tomorrow.

    Bass V-AMP PRO

    By Brian McCaulley

    from Greensburg, PA

    Comments about Behringer Bass V-AMP PRO Rack Modeling Preamp:

    I've owned this unit for over two years now. I run it through a Trace Elliot amp and found it to be a better amp modeler than an effects unit, but I rarely use effects. I rate it a 10 because of the bang-for-the-buck. Some may find the effects adequate, (nothing is better than a dedicated pedal), but as a pre-amp, it is nothing short of awesome. I get the sweetest tones from this thing. Surprisingly, the Trace Elliot amp model sux through my Trace Elliot amp, but sounded great through my friend's SVT. (Likewise, the SVT amp model sux through his SVT amp). I highly recommend this unit to everyone.

    A great Bass pre amp

    By Airplai

    from Kingston, Jamaica

    Comments about Behringer Bass V-AMP PRO Rack Modeling Preamp:

    I purchase this product a few years ago and have gotten the chance to take it through the paces. One thing I must encourage to also invest in if you are an tour/active musician is a portable rack mount the company Gator makes some nice ones. This will protect the device when traveling. The materials they used for the knobs aren't very strong. The sound you get from this device is up to you. It very customizable; so tweak away. I use a Fender Bassman combo with the Bass V-amp also the FCB1010 with the Vamprom install when I to local pub gigs. When I do larger shows I save my setting and all the above except be Bassman. It well worth the time to read the manual cover to cover and understand the device so you can enjoy your purchase fully.

    Rocks Right Out of The Box!!!

    By NDNplanner

    from Albuquerque, NM

    Ask me a question

    Comments about Behringer Bass V-AMP PRO Rack Modeling Preamp:

    I bought this guy a few weeks ago because i needed a new pre-amp for my Bass, i just wasn't getting the sound i wanted to get out of the equipment i had at the time. So i bought this guy from here at Musicians Friend, and when it arrived all i had to do was rack mount it, plug it in, spin some knobs to find that deep huge bass sound i wanted, and within seconds i was ready to rock. If your a bass player who is not one of these 'tone guys' and your looking for something that sounds killer with little effort or knowledge about reverbs, compressors and such, this is the pre-amp for you! And for you tone people, this pre-amp allows you to really dial in that tone and effect your going for, the system navigation is fairly intuitive, once you get a feel for the buttons.

    Bass V-Amp Pro

    By spenman1223

    from Atlanta, GA

    Comments about Behringer Bass V-AMP PRO Rack Modeling Preamp:

    I recently purchased this amp modeler/preamp and I am pleasantly surprised with its effectiveness and sound quality. Bass effects are almost useless to me, but I get such a good sound with this unit, I can't help be to use it. The only problem I have with the unit is that you are only able to run one effect at a time.

    Cool Box!

    By *MURPH*

    from Virginia

    Comments about Behringer Bass V-AMP PRO Rack Modeling Preamp:

    I owned one and it got stolen, I will buy another.The manual seemed kinda confusing so I did what a lot of do anyway and that is to just start turnin knobs and clicking buttons,It is easy to figure out. Lotsa choices and the sound pretty good. I ran this through a Morgan Monroe Class b Bass amp that was just a total heap of Junk!!! I mean this amp sounded lousy but the V-amp worked wonders and made it sound a lot better and in fact I used in a professional recording setting with no problems.

    Handy Effects system

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Behringer Bass V-AMP PRO Rack Modeling Preamp:

    This is good for what you pay for it. At the price you get a handful of effects, amps, and cab's. It is deffinantly worth the money. This is the second one i,ve owned. I started with the bass V-amp thenm got rid of it and then went for this. The rack ears are strong and it is good to go. Im in two bands and its lasted for a while with no problems yet. But you think that behringer would allow you to plug in an exp. pedal thats not on the midi pedal that you have to buy seperately.
