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.

Buying another.

Comments about Behringer V-Amp Pro Guitar Multi Effects Processor:

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.

killer for the price

By Todd-W9yOn

from bay city mi

Comments about Behringer V-Amp Pro Guitar Multi Effects Processor:

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.

Great Value On A Budget

By Guitarrobb

from North Carolina

Comments about Behringer V-Amp Pro Guitar Multi Effects Processor:

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.

Comments about Behringer V-Amp Pro Guitar Multi Effects Processor:

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!

Great Deal

Comments about Behringer V-Amp Pro Guitar Multi Effects Processor:

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.

Cheap and good

By rknbacker4vr

Comments about Behringer V-Amp Pro Guitar Multi Effects Processor:

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.

Comments about Behringer V-Amp Pro Guitar Multi Effects Processor:

This is one piece from Behringer that has impressed me a lot. Great quality for live and recording, and great price. I've used it and abused it with lots of live performances, and used it in the studio. Since I purchased it, I've used the Line 6 version of it, and it's very comparable, but half the price.The tones on it are great, even direct from the box to your computer. It has a lot of useful routing capabilites, from analog to digital. It's also built very well. I'd recommend a case for it if you want it to last, like and SBK, but I'd recommend a case for any rack gear - don't just SET it on your amp.Tons of FX, tons of tones, easy to edit, etc.IF you want to use it in an FX loop on an amp, and your amp doesn't have a stereo FX loop, you'll need to combine your stereo send/returns from the VAMP, because there is no 'mono.'Anyways, great buy all around. Highly recommended for any level guitarist.I hear ppl complaining about gear a lot, and most the time it's ppl new to the hi-tech audio equipment . I read reviews about speakers, PA amps, etc, and hear how speakers blow, amps cut off, bla bla... READ the manual and make sure to hook it up right! THE equipment works most the time, unless you get a lemon.AND NOISE GATES ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO ELIMINATE HUM AND STATIC. If you read about them, all they do is cut off the sound when the signal gets below a threshold that you set and the reason is so when you END your song, the PA/gutiar amps are quiet until you start the next song. ONCE you start playing, the sound comes back, including the hum etc. Get a hum eliminator if you're having a hum problem.I could go on and on, but back to the VAMP. Get it and you'll be smiling.Email me if you have questions.Rock on!Mathew RyanJobberThe Mathew Ryan Band

Amazing Device - Amazing Potential

By nmarks520-J8A2d

from Manchester, NH

Comments about Behringer V-Amp Pro Guitar Multi Effects Processor:

I have had this device for about a year and a half now and have put off reviewing it until I've had an opportunity to use it for an extended period of time in both the studio and on the road. I've used the processor in a number of different configurations, with a number of different guitars, and pushing a number of different amps and boards. Initially I found the tone to be a bit weak in front of an amp, using the unit as an overglorified stomp box. Using it as a direct recording device was perfect... good modeling and some fairly convincing sounds. Recently I tried something with this device and was absolutely blown away. I'm running the V-Amp through the stereo effects loop of a solid state head (120 watts, 60 per channel) into a Behringer 4x12 cabinet. I've got all of the EQ controls on the amp centered dead on 5, and on the lead channel I have the gain cranked up to about 9. When I use the clean channel of the amp I use the "Classic Clean" setting with a bit of chorus / compression and when I switch to the lead channel I switch the V-Amp over to "Tweed" and the "Vintage 30" cabinet. This produces the most convincing rectified distortion sound I have ever heard from a solid state amp. I've run this configuration against rectified tube heads and it nearly brings tears to my eyes, it is so convincing. And the best part? About a THIRD of the price a rectified half-stack goes for. You be the judge.
