    Get awesome tube sounds without spending hours fiddling with knobs.

    Setting up amps, dialing in tones and positioning mics takes a lot of time and patience. Why not step on a TM300 Tube Amp Modeler and skip straight to the good part?

    With 3 classic tube amps, 3 gain modes and 3 mic placements to choose from, the TM300 puts 27 combinations of some of the most sought-after tube amp tones right at your feet.

    In this one simple pedal, you can call up the sound of a coveted tweed relic, a clean Californian classic or a roaring British powerhouse. You then apply your choice of the three different gain modes, and even control virtual mic placement. And with its dedicated Level, Low, High and Drive dials, the TM300 allows you to take any of these historic tones and shape them into something uniquely all your own.

    The bright, blue LED tells you when the TM300 is activated, and the top-quality on/off switch maintains incredible signal integrity in bypass mode. You can power this little “jack-of-all-trades” with either a 9V battery or our PSU-SB DC power supply (not included).

    Why spend all your time lugging gear, tweaking knobs on multiple amps and playing pin-the-mic-on-the-grill? Get a TM300, and do what you do best—make music!

        Comments about BEHRINGER TM300 TUBE AMP MODELER PEDAL:

        I've had the pedal a couple weeks now and I am more familiar with it. I may have written a previous review so this might be an update...

        I purchased this pedal for the few times I would have to play on others' amps that don't have any effects as I already have two very good modeling amps. It works great on the modeling amps with the clean channels selected.

        Recently I bought a Fender Blues Jr which has no effects. I am in a small space where you really can't crank up the volume. To cut to the chase, the TM300 can stand toe to toe with either of my modeling amps, either plugged into them or the Blues Jr.

        In the modeling amps it provides more clean voices than the amps do without a lot of fiddling. You can also use the distortion/overdrive features instead of the amps' native on-board features if you wish. It is very intuitive and if you take the time to play with it you can come up with some very interesting combinations.

        I have a Les Paul Custom and a Fender Strat. And though both have upgraded pickups I couldn't quite get the sounds I wanted. The LP was a little too jazz-like and muddy when played in distortion thru the amps. The Strat was just tinny and quacky. I was considering changing out the pickups in both a second time. The TM300 breathed new life into my LP. I can now dial in the sound I want without having the change the pickups. The Strat has a richer fuller sound when I want and the quack when I want.

        I got this one simply because it was cheap and I just wanted to play around. Venti cinco dolares? Are you kidding me??? The only drawbacks are:
        1) It has a plastic housing. It's not heavy duty like a Boss.

        2) If you use 9V batteries you have to take the stomper off the change them. A minor annoyance.

        3) If you use batteries you have to be careful to unplug the unit after use or it will burn thru your battery in less than a day. Or you will have to buy a 9V adapter.

        BUT... If you don't want power cables and like to keep things neater, the battery option will help and will also make it more portable as you don't have to pack a power cable if you go anywhere with it.

        This is my 3rd Behringer pedal, and though not the best in the world I own 3 for 75 buckaroos... less than the price of one professional pedal. For an amateur they work fine and can help a newbie find out what they like and need in pedals without a lot of financial pain.

          Comments about BEHRINGER TM300 TUBE AMP MODELER PEDAL:

          Case is plastic to evidently help with cost. With the cost of musical equipment any help is great. I take very good care of equipment so I do not "stomp" on them. Pedal has quality sounds that seem to work within relm of eq'ing. This pedal has it's own drive built in although a bit sensitive. Take your time and you can dial in some quality tones and sounds. I play lots of various music ranging from southern, blues and Christian rock and have been able to fine something nice that works with each style or genre. Again the pedal controls seem a little sensitive so take your time when you start with the pedal. I enjoy expermiemting so this facet is a-ok by me. Over all good pedal.

            Comments about BEHRINGER TM300 TUBE AMP MODELER PEDAL:

            This pedal is surprisingly good despite the low price. It is a "secret weapon" of sorts I use in my home studio for recording demos. It is also great for silent headphone practicing. I've played for 17 years and own expensive guitars and tube amps. I'm not saying this sounds better than a quality amp, but for no hassle recording, it can't be beat. Sounds way better than Line 6 stuff. Don't worry about brand, let your ears make the call. Note: this pedal does NOT sound all that great in front of an amp. IT IS NOT MEANT TO BE USED AS A DISTORTION PEDAL, it emulates an amp with a mic in front of it. Basically has Fender, Marshall, and Mesa tones, 3 modes of each, and 3 mic positions. Pretty versatile, and inexpensive. Awesome pedal overall!

            Best Uses

              Comments about BEHRINGER TM300 TUBE AMP MODELER PEDAL:

              I bought this to bridge the time gap between me getting my first electric guitar (an Ibanez GRG with active pickups and a Floyd Rose copy) and my first guitar amp (a Marshall MG30DFX), and it did well at that. I had been playing bass for about a year, so at first I primarily used it through my little Fender Rumble 15 bass combo, and an 30 year old Park keyboard amp I inherited from my mother (a keyboardist). The distortion settings sounded good through those (although a bit noisy at high gain settings), and most of the clean settings sounded good, but the Tweed setting on clean didn't add much to the clean tone when used on the bass amp, but sounded great on the Keyboard amp (probably because the bass amp is a Fender, which is what this models). Overall, decent as an amp modeler, although no legitimate cab sim, despite the MIC knob.

              Once I got my guitar amp (a Marshall MG30DFX solid state, like I said above) I continued to use this as a distortion pedal. Some of those sounds were good, but overall not great as a distortion pedal.

              Fast forward a little while, and I now have a cheap clone of the Fulltone OCD, and a Digitech RP350, both Christmas presents. After not using this for a while after getting those, I came up with another use for it: to boost the OCD clone before it goes into the Rp350, for a lead tone. For this, I set the gain to minimum, level to maximum, EQ to taste, and put the MIC knob on the Classic setting (anything else coloured the sound too much), the MOD knob to the Clean setting (a no-brainer for using as a clean boost), and the Amp knob to BRIT (this turned out to be the most neutral setting when used through the OCD clone, but gave me a little bit of that Tube Screamer mid-hump. Using it this way worked well, as it caused the OCD to distort more, and when EQ'd right, resulted in a nice lead sound, and the OCD made it not actually boost the volume any, to avoid clipping the digital input of the RP350. Pretty solid as a boost, though not totally transparent.

              Overall, it's a decent starter pedal, and has a few different uses (amp modeller, dirt box, and cleanish boost). However, I may get rid of it once I get a different pedal to use as a boost. I would recommend it to a friend, if that friend was a beginner, and I plan on giving it to one once I get something like a TS to use as a boost.
