I've owned this V-amp since I got serious about guitar. I don't have a whole lot of money, so I started with a crappy (used) V-amp 2 that I got cheap because it couldn't remember its presets. I switched to the V-amp Pro to fix this problem, to have a rackmountable Effects Processor, and to process digital effects at 96khz instead of 44.1 or 48. It's been three years, and I must say that this product still amazes me. The tones may not be entirely accurate, and it is VITAL that you read the manual thoroughly, but wow once you understand all of it's dimensions, the V-amp is truly an innovation in the Guitar business. I run my guitar into the V-amp, to a behringer eq, then to the Europower amplifier, into a Behringer 4x12 cab. I get made fun of by all the audio kids out there, but they are speechless once I start playing. It's so easy to use, versatile, and smart. My only complaint is that combining effects can get messy, but is somewhat possible with Behringer's computer software for the program. I've also looked inside the unit before (I stupidly ran my rig into a wall and broke some pots... after warranty), and I can tell you all that my unit was PERFECTLY electronically sound, solder connections were pristine and the components were of a medium-high quality (not cheap!). I am still amazed at how Behringer managed to make such a smart, intuitive product at such a low cost. It's sheer genius, and I'm very experienced with this product.

I recently ordered the V-Amp Pro brand new off eBay. I play it through the FX Loop of my Randall RG100SC, with a custom-made Ibanez S tuned down to B.The Good Stuff: Excellent clean models, and low-gain tweed and blues models (I don't play blues, but they sounded alright to me). The FX are very good quality: reverb, delay, chorus, and wah FX were impressive. The connectivity in the back is very helpful for live stuff and studio. I liked how the knobs are LED based, showing you how the settings changed when you switch presets, unlike the POD, more like the PODxt. There was a little bit of delay when switching between presets that had different amp models, but I made sure that when I was playing live, the only thing that changed upon switching was the FX, and that solved the latency problem.The Bad Stuff: I could never get the high-gain models to sound anything close to good. Not even the presets sounded all that good in my opinion. The palm-mute sound was weak. Without a MIDI controller, the V-Amp becomes very inconvenient, and if it's not in a rack or carrying case, it gets scratched easily. And I don't like how you can't mix and match FX.I now use the V-Amp Pro as nothing more than an FX processor and cab-modeling DI; I don't use the amp models or digital cab models at all. And even considering that, there are more convenient and capable processors that would suit this purpose better than a rackmounted processor. I'll probably sell it. Personally, I'm done with digitally modeled distortion, I'm sticking with analog.

V amp works well and sounds good.
This unit is a good idea, but doesn't deliver IMO. I was hoping to free up some room on my pedal board by using this rack unit for my live playing. Comparing this to other units it seemed like a good way to go.I used a midi interface with my computer and tweaked every setting for about two weeks and couldn't come up with a sound that I thought was good enough. The distortions are unimpressive and the modulation effects leave a lot to be desired. This is just another digital unit claiming to model amps and cabs perfectly, but coming up short.I really wanted to give this a chance because of all the great reviews it seems to get, but in the end it didn't make the grade for me.
I have owned the V-amp, Vamp Pro and the V-Ampire combo amp. Every single one of them broke or went wacky. The V-amp pro broke (circuit went crazy) only after 4 months! I am not hard on my gear either. Behringer get the quality in order please. I love the sound of these units. I have used them live and recording demos in the studio, but after all the quality issues, I am now afraid to take these to a gig. The quality is just crappy.
Had a V-Amp2 a few years ago and it had issues from the start. Went ahead and ordered the V-Amp Pro after much deliberation. I was hoping for better quality, but the master volume went out after the second day of lite usage. Too bad as I favour the V-Amp sound generation capabilities over the Pod. If only Behringer can get their quality control issues ... controlled (!) it would be great. Sent the unit back. Perhaps in a future date when they are solid I will try again.
For the money, you cant go wrong. Sounds WAY better than the line6 stuff for much less money. Convincing tones...I use mine in a home studio for direct recording. The analog speaker cab simulation sounds better than the digital ones in my opinion. Doesnt have the subtle nuances and feel of a tube amp but theres not a digital modeler on the planet that does. Its not built very tough but if you take care of it, itll provide many years of service.
Unfortunately, my V-AMP that I've had for 3 years was stolen out of my garage about 3 months ago.Like I said in my previous post, I am purchasing another today! In the mean time, I had been using a POD 2.0, and honestly, with my set up, I just can't get the sounds I'm looking for with it, so decided to go back to the V-AMP. I missed it.Again, for the price, routing capabilities, sound quality whether live or recording, you can't beat this pre-amp.
I have a line 6 POD and this is really pretty much the same thing exactly, this unit is a little noisier than the POD which isn't really much of a problem when you consider the price,this also has a phaser effect that the POD does not.
ive been using this processor into a power amp for at least 2 years in various death metal bands and i have walked into conversations where people were talkin bad about behringer. i always stop them and ask if they like my tone. everyone says yes and then i tell them what i use, it surprises them everytime. i could not possibly have gotten a meaner tone out of any other processor on the market. BUY ONE!
I have had my V-Amp Pro for 2 months. I've had no problems with the unit's operation. I'm using it with a Digitech/Hafler G300 power amp, many different types of guitars, and it sounds killer. I can get just about any amp tone I want. The built in effects are not the best sounding I've heard, but the are good; I would have no problem using them for a live show. The delay is really good; has a nice analog sound and does not muddle what you are playing. You could loop some outboard digital effects with the unit and use only the amp models to improve your effects options. Overall it has a relatively clean sound, but does respond like a real tube head with some hiss and will squeal at high volumes if your pickups are microphonic (usually cheap pickups). You might improve the hiss and microphonics with a noise reduction unit like a Rocktron Hush Super C. I really like my V-Amp Pro. I think I got a really good preamp for the low price. I would put my V-Amp Pro up against a Line 6 POD any day. Behinger products are really good in quality and value.
Believe it or not. I have this as well as the Line 6 Pod XT. Both devices are good for different sounds. I'm using the Podxt for the clean and bluesy sounds. I'm using the Behringer mainly for the metal sounds. It is cheap, easy to dial up heavy metal/shred sounds. I thought I was going to sell it, when I got the Pod but decided to keep it because it's so darn cheap. Again, I'm using the Behringer only for metal songs. I've had it in my rig for 2 years now and it hasn't failed me yet.
