I bought this amp about a year ago, and I have been happy with it. It has great quality, great controlls and overall awesome features. But I ran into one problem, the 12" speaker is too weak to output all the power of this amp, it start to make "farting" noises. But on shows sometimes I would plug the speaker out, and put it through a pa or something.

After reading several reviews here I decided to give the BX1200 a shot. My SWR Workingman's 15 is pretty heavy and I hoped a smaller box would be able to give my back a break for some of my gigs.Bottom line, this is a very attractive amp, with a logical control layout. The foot pedal is very robust. Upon arrival, I took it out of the ebox and gave it a test-run in my cellar. The sonics were OK, nothing special, but very serviceable at modest volume. The Ultrabass feature is of questionable value; it sounds more like distortion to my ear.I did note that at a purported 120 watts, it had nowhere near the power of my 150 watt SWR, but it appeared to have enough guts to get the job done. A few days later I brought the new amp to my gig. We set up and did our sound check. Within three minutes the Behringer started cutting out randomly, losing volume and generally sounding bad. When I turned the master volume up beyond 4, it cut out completely, making weird hissing sounds.The sound tech saved the gig, rigging me with a direct box and a monitor to hear myself play, but I was utterly disgusted by the Behringer amp.It looks good, it's small and compact, the kickback cab is great, but it lasted less than 15 minutes in actual use before it died on me.Our guitarist, who is also a amp repair guy, said he'd heard about quality control issues with this amp. The design and circuitry plan is German but they use a Chinese maker, so all bets are off.If you get lucky enough to find one that works, keep it. Otherwise, I'd be very wary of this product.

About this Amp

By Money

from Florida

I took it out of the box set the proper sound. Later that night I took it to a small gig. It was load enough, but cut out on me durring the first set. After the show, I took it home and it worked great. The next day I took it to practice and the thing cut out again. If I hit the top of this POS, it would work for a half of a song. Don't buy this amp! I never put the volume past 5 (about half way)

Good amp...not enough power

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I bought this amp about a year ago and it's been great. Unfortunately, if you are going to spend your money on this, you might as well save it towards something with more watts. I only bought this because it had a lot of watts for a cheap price. It's just barely not enough power, even with a 4x10 cab hooked up with it.

GREAT AMP

By Rob-TR9ZH

from MS

Bought one for Church use. The sound is great. For groups that play hard and loud the wedge cabinet is a plus.

Great Combo in price range

By Russ(sn=breakpointbass)

This was my third amp. I am very impressed about the quality and the very beautiful sound. but this amp leaves something to be desired. aready I'm lookin at the Ampeg 410 combo and just using this as a preamp. the 12 just doesn't boom as much as I like, but don't get me wrong, for the style i play with my band, there isn't anything better.

yes

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

i think that amp is a very great deal, if you mess with the tone and shape and all of that you get very good tone at high levels of volume. for being a combo amp this thing will pound out the low notes but still leave room for the higher octaves.

Great for Church

By BigScheff-Y6kQA

from Dallas, TX

Nice Amp for Church use. Sounds a little "froggy," as our music leader calls it. Not the best tone, but the DI out to the house is quie., I use it and my Sansamp Bass DI and it sounds just great. I am suprised how much it can take and still sounds great. Solidly built little amp. Not good for big outdoor gigs, but great for a small church + it looks good and works as a great stage monitor.

Things that go BOOM!

By Loomisthedevil

See all my reviews

I have read about, and have seen more reviews on Behringer products over the last few years then I can remeber. I was a bit cautious on purchasing anything off-line that I can not play in store. But, when I finally found a store that carrys them, I was more then blown away! I spent more then an hour A/B'ing between the 1200 and a Hartke B60. While the Hartke is still a Hartke, great quality and sound I was more then shocked and stunned at the sheer quality of the 1200. Its tones cuppled with my SR505 with Bartloni pre-amp system allowed me to make everything from Deep pounding Dub style bass, to bright and tinny metal sound. I was more aware of the range and versitlity of this amp then the Hartke ( and at Half the price how can you go wrong!) and one you activate the "Dynamizer" Circuit and turned the Pick-up balance to full bore it sounded like a 10 string monster! It produced the most accurate sounding "Jermey" opening then I have evern heard on an none 8 string bass. Take from a man with more then 15 yrs of playing every style of music. And have played through and owned just about every possiable combination of speakers and cabinets, dont waste your money on another amp till you try one of these guys...you owe it to your tone!!
