Ok, so don't laugh - I found this amp in the garbage :P Seriously. Apparently it had been rained on and then stored so it had a bit of a musty smell so they were throwing it out. I knew the owner and asked if I could take it home thinking it would be a free speaker and maybe some parts, but I was pleasantly surprised to find out it worked, and it worked really well from what I expected.

I have since cleaned her up good (No more smell) and it has lived in my rehearsal space for over two years. I have even taken it out for duo gigs and small venue where a drummer isn't sharing the stage, and it has always worked really well

TONE
For those who want that all gain metal thing - this isn't your baby. On the Hell channel, I would describe the gain as Marshall -esque, and pretty darn loud. I have had it at several jam sessions with drums bass, with no trouble keeping up and even had comments about how killer it sounded, which is funny. When maxed out you can hear stuff rattling around a bit tho. The clean sound (Heaven) is quite aaiiight. I find the eq is best set with the treble at half or less and the mids cranked. Also have the bass up higher than I usually would to get some of the low mid I like. (Have to lower the bass if cranked...the things sounds like it might explode when driven hard, which is also kinda cool because I haven't been able to make it blow up yet)

EFFECTS
But for a sprinkle of delay - I don't use effects much. I am quite happy with what I can dial in and I find it super easy to get what I need in just a couple of seconds. I havent really browsed through the rest of the offerings but it is the usual gated reverb nonsense, flangers, etc.

The buttons are flimsy, it is made of pressboard or something..typical cheaper Behringer stuff from before the rebrand. But for the $$ I think it is totally worth it. A really great sounding little amp in my opinion, no matter what name is on the grill.

I was looking for a 1/12 combo that could do small gigs and jam. You know, fairly light and easy to transport as opposed to my boomer half stack which is usually overkill anyway. The amp also had to have serious tone, punch and attitude! I bought this amp after reading the factory hype about tube emulation, devastating aray of effects, quality sound and killer German engineering! The sound was tinny, the effects all sounded about the same (none of them good) and simply, it sounded and felt like a cheap, Chinese made piece of junk; which of course it is! Save your money and buy quality instead of hype! You can't substitute quality with rhetoric!

Good and loud with a pedal

By Luther P.

from kenly, NC

This is a good amp if you wnat to be loud but the effects and the distortion sucks. but I just got the digitech grunge pedal and this thing is the bomb I only recommend this to anybody who likes to mess around on the guitar. but make sure you have a pedal.

The worst!

Worst sounding amp I have ever heard. Sounds like a ukelele with plastic strings. No presence-fullness or sustain.

Poor quality from Behringer...

By Winston-MegFD

from NE

See all my reviews

Never have I played through an amp of such poor quality. Sounded good through headphones but would short out at live shows if tured past 7. The last time it never turned on again. Opened it up to find only a small effects board and speaker. Cab chips very easy. Effects are all origanl and useless. Sent it back ASAP.

Worst of the Line

By Voxman77

from Largo, Fl.

See all my reviews

This is the worst thing Behringer has ever made. I couldn't get any gain out of it before it started clipping. If you run the preamp too strong it will clip. The only reason I gave it an 8 for value is because MF is giving them away. If you want Behringer, get a V-Tone, or better still, spend some more cash and get the Vox Valvatronix 50 watt. You can even control the amps output without loosing tone for quiet practice. I am now a Vox Man after being a Behringer Man for the last 3 years.

Amazing amp

By suavemonkeyboy

from Oregon

Great amp! I use it with my Ibanez and despite its size, it gets my house shaking just above 1/2 power, and never compromises noise for quality sound! Great effects. It gets all the dogs in my neighborhood barking, which makes it good in my book. Again, despite how loud you get, it doesn't lose quality. Great amp, highly recommended!

It's Not Blue...But It's Not Bad...

By SharpeGuitars

from St. Louis, MO

I've been looking for a small amp to keep in my music room in the basement and just noticed the attractively priced Behringer Blue Devil GX112 in a recent Musician's Friend catalogue. The size (and particularly the price) were ideal for my requirements. Although I found the dark blue covering kind of attractive, when I first opened the box I was disappointed to find that this particular amp was actually covered in a black sprayed-on, pebble-type finish. So much for the "BLUE Devil" designation. Any disappointment, however, vanished once I powered up and became familiar with the features. Keep in mind that I am an archtop player who mainly plays chord-melody type stuff, so all I'm looking for is moderate-volume TONE, not power. The GX-112 (mine actually came equipped with a Jensen 12" and NOT the advertised Shark(?) brand speaker)sounds wonderful and the various reverb and chorus settings are full and rich. I doubt if I will ever even try the HELL channel, but the clean channel is pretty close to HEAVEN as advertised. For my needs, this is a great little amp...even though it's NOT BLUE.

Well worth the money!

By Anonymous

I bought this amp last year and could not have asked for a better deal! It was extremely cheap, cranked if I needed it and has 99 different effects that can be combined. It does anything you could possibly want!

Do not gamble

By theNitefly

from Chicago, IL

See all my reviews

I owned the amp, but am now trying to sell it. It gave out on me with in a week, the sound became distorted, and the rattling in the speaker became apparent. Any amp is a better value than this. Sure, it's set at a cheap price, but you get less than what you pay for. I bought a vox valvetronix for a little more: real tube, vitage effects, seemless channel switching, loud clean sound from a small amp, from metal to blues to classical.

Decent, but not the best

By 34343

This amp has all the effects in the world built inside, ready for your disposal! However, the amps distortion is lousy and the effects footswitch is somewhat confusing.

German Trash

By Dominic-CAWrr

from Atlanta

See all my reviews

This amp is German trash, any Behringer amp ive ever owned has broken down within weeks. If you want anything to last, by a fender, line 6, or marshall. This amp is very heavy because of the wook box, and is not worth the price. From a guitarist to a guitarist, it's not worth it.

Pretty darn good

By killedtolife

from Stafford, VA

This amp works pretty good for me, it's quite loud. The effects are awesome - try LFO wah, preset number 73 - and the only complaint I have is that the "Hell" channel isn't sick enough to deserve the title! A simple "Distortion" would have sufficed; "Hell" gives the impression that you're in for some super sick distortion, when you're not - it's more of a crunch-type thing - which is ok with me, since I simply bypass with a distortion pedal, but could foul me up if I get the MIDI rig that Behringer makes. Overall, it's quite the good hardy amp, and the tube/digital mix (Virtube tech) is definitely cool. Makes your friends stop and go, "What? Tube amp with digital effects?"

Unbelievable amp for this price

By butch-Y11JG

from West Palm Beach, FL

Looks good, sounds good, and the price is great! This would be a great starter or practice amp, but it also has enough power and features to use at a small gig!

great amp for its purpose

By phantom stranger-UC25S

from home

i have noticed a few poor ratings on this amp, generally from pros. all I have to say is get over it. if you want a top of the line amp, buy a marshall. i love this amp, it serves me very well, great for the price, and now all i need is the v-amp pro, the only problem i've had with it is that i can't get the delay set right for welcome to the jungle. it isnt a recording amp, it isnt a gig amp, all it was intended for is sample music, or practice, or demos, or whatever.

Best Cheap Amp Ever

By MusicMan347

from Dry Ridge, Kentucky

I bought this amp because my practice amp quit. But now I use this amp on stage at my concerts. I truly love the quality of the effects on this amp. I have to say THIS AMP IS WORTH THE MONEY. I would even spend much more just for the effects on this amp.

Great FX, Nice Tonal Range

By Josh-9uV8_

from Shillington, PA

See all my reviews

My biggest peeve is getting an amp/effects processor/etc. that has a lot of 'unique' settings that are so 'unique' that they are 'unusable.' As others have mentioned, this amp is well worth it's price and it's got some power. i think it shines in its frequency response (range of sound) and FX. One thing I did notice is that depending of the effect, the sound will cut out for a split second when the channel is turned on or off. There is also the slightest amount of hum to the unit that's audible when not playing and the amp is about 1/3 of the way up or more.

By Anonymous

this amp is ok, never once have i had a problem with it, the effects are unique, the reverb gets really good, however the down fall of this amp is that the distortion is not good what so ever, its more of a crunch, if u want a good amp get it, dont expect too much though..

Great starter combo

By Snackmaster

from Manhattan, KS

Ok, let me preface by saying I'm an amateur. As I'm learning on a budget I try to stick with budget products. For the price, I see nothing wrong with this amp. I have not experienced any of the problems that other users have at this point and i've put it through the "rigors" for a couple of weeks now. All the knobs and buttons are tight and fluid... connections are solid... and the entire cases is heavy and sturdy. All documentation and instructions are clear and concise. No buzzing or unwanted RF noise - just clean sound. It may not meet the demands of professional musicians (according to their specific needs), but I highly recommend this as a great value!!!
