This is one cool little amp! I think it has the potential to become a classic studio amp, like the Pignose. (But don't get rid of your Pignose - the Firebird does something different.)Where the Firebird differs, to my ears at least, is that it emulates the brighter, Class A sound of Hiwatt and Vox - rather than the Class B, "Bassman wide open" sound of the Pignose. The Firebird has glassy highs and hyper-responsive touch, even at lower gain settings. The cabinet is very nicely voiced. With the right mic placement, no one will be able to tell you didn't go out and rent some high-dollar boutique glassware. But, hey - even if you never plan to record with it, it's just plain fun to play! That's the bottom line: "Does it make me want to play my guitar A WHOLE LOT?" Yes, it does!

Behringer firebird 108

By greybox

Pros

  • Good Presense
  • LOUD
  • Smooth Compression
  • Vintage Sound

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Home use
    • Recording

    This amp was purchased used and the only issue is a loose input jack. The sound is incredible and sounds very much like a vintage tube amp. I liked it better than the Fender vintage amps I played while looking for the sound. Almost as warm as my VOX tube amp

    Great PRACTICE Amp.

    By Chris-ag6Nb

    from Carmel, NY

    Let's start with the bad. This amp only has one channel. The distortion is useless for metal/punk. Personally I do not mind this. I bought this amp as something to take with me when I teach guitar to attractive girls. It does just fine. Very lightweight. Looks GORGEOUS. Does NOT feel cheap whatsoever. Has touch sensitivity similar to my DeVille. Headphone output is convenient. Great job of loosely simulating a vintage tube sound for the money. I'm sure you will be satisfied if your expectations are not unreasonable.

    Best Vintage Practice and Recording Amp Ever Built

    By Bob-Eu3tG

    from Detroit

    This is the best vintage practice and recording amp ever built. It has tube like tone, compression, and dynamic response. The speaker and enclosure is well matched giving a sparkly vintage vibe, and the clean sounds like a lot of recordings you have heard. It is a practical amp to use at home because you don't have to turn it up to performance levels to get good tone. That little 8 inch speaker sounds like a 2x12 or 2x10 (actually better at low volumes) and is full sounding ... vintage tone at practice and recording levels.Don't audition this amp in a noisy music store. Audition it in the lesson room or the back room lounge, where you can hear what it will sound like in your own home.Do yourself a favor and try it. I don't think you will be disappointed.

    Perfect Basic Practice Amp

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Everything about this amp looks well-made.The caseis built like a tank, very sturdy, the knobs lookhigh qulity,compared to most small amps (smallenough to sit on my shelf). One channel,one inputbut I didn't need more; 15 watts, but you'd guessmore, IT IS LOUD!! Crunching gain (think Stones orCreedence), fierce overdrive (think Who or AC/DC)

    I can't give it 10 stars across the board because it is just a little practice amp, but what a great value. It has a nice warm distortion tone that I like better than my marshall practice amp. Great Deal!!!

    This thing breaks so easily. I got it just last night and it won't work. It doesn't make a guitar sound. All I can hear is static.

    Great sound

    By Lonesome Guitar Strangler

    from Texas

    Great sounding amp. I had bought a Drive 20 watt earlier and while it's a little louder, the Behringer doesn't produce as much feedback when you crank it up. Doesn't get very loud without the gain turned up, but gets pretty loud with nice sounding overdrive when you add a little gain. Maybe it doesn't get real heavy metal type distortion, but who wants to hear that crap anyway. I got this and the Drive amp for the price I would have paid for one similiar name brand practice amp and if your just getting a practice amp who cares about a fancy label.

    Wanted a cheap travel amp

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Wasn't looking to spend much. Just to take along on camping trips and messing around at small party's. All was impressed with the sound it brought out, and been very satisfied with this amp. It handles my Washburn MG200 with no problem.

    Simply Sweet

    By teedlebomb

    I continue to be amazed at the quality you can get these days for a small amount of cash. No doubt we owe a thank you to our Asian friends who don't demand high pay. Just picked up this little baby and mated it as a remote to its big brother, a Marshall AVT50. The two sound simply lovely as a stereo pair. Highly recommended. The gain section has plenty of tonal range from mild distortion up to decent metal. Treble, Bass and Midrange controls handle the rest. Excellent loudness from a small amp. A fine little amp for a starting guitarist and an equally fine smaller amp for a 30 year player. Do it!

    Great amp man

    By Peconomusman

    This amp can make some noise. I am still new with amp quality, but it has the basic middle/low/high volume settings,gain, and level(main volume control).My friends and I run a 4 channel nady thingy into it, and you can hear all the instruments well, even though it is a small amp.There is nothing wrong with this amp, my friend whom I bought it for likes it, I like it, and so does everyone else.I suggest getting it.

    excellent, very basic, practice combo

    By Lorelie

    from Oaktown, CA

    See all my reviews

    This little 15W amp puts out a lot of sound. It is dead simple - no on board effects, no amp modeling - and I like that - FX and amp modeling suck on these cheap combos. Real basic - you got one channel, a 3 band EQ, gain, and level - gets pretty good overdrive, but if want heavy distortion or other FX, get a pedal. Nice clean sound. One nice thing is that this little combo has RCA input and output jacks - very cool. And they're cheap enough, you can get two of them and get stereo effects - try it with a rotary speaker pedal, for example.

    Great starter or extra practice amp

    By Logan Gauthier

    from Huntsville

    See all my reviews

    I have had this amp for a year now and it was my first amp. It has a rock bottom price and can get fairly loud without breaking up. It does not have distortion, but with the money you save with this thing, you could go and buy a nice distortion pedal, or any effects pedal for that matter. I am about to buy a new 30w amp and i think i am going to use this one for my computer. i am going to figure out how to connect it using the back input/output jacks so i can record on my computer. Overall a great amp!

    This amp rocks, every guitar I have plugged into this thing sounds great, even the guitar that I built out of 2x4s and hard drive magnets... This amp will give you a great presence and great overdrive... Play anything from slow blues to screaming hard rock!

    Great first amp

    By Thegeoff

    from Conway, AR

    This is the first amp I've owned and I'm quite pleased with it. It's built well and sounds better than you might expect it to. I appreciate the RCA in/out, as it allows me to hook up my iPod and play along, as well as record on my computer. The distortion is great for a little tubeless amp, though I wish it had reverb. I'll buy this brand again soon and pass this one along to my brother.

    Great practice and studio amp

    By geezer_rock

    from Aurora, CO

    The Behringer Firebird GX108 Practice Combo is a cool retro-looking little amp with great sound. It's well-built and puts out a ton of sound for such a small unit. The 3-band EQ allows for good tonal shaping, and the gain control adds some definite kick. I needed something smaller to haul around than my big honkin' Fender amp, and I can still run all my effects loop through this little guy, so not having reverb is no big deal. For 50 bucks you can't beat it, so buy this amp!
