        Comments about Behringer Vintage Tube Overdrive VT911 Effects Pedal:

        This thing was noisy from the get-go, and extremely too noisy to even try on a Marshall, but I later tried it on my Rogue 80 watt stereo chorus amp and I was able to turn it down enough to get some tones out of it, but it still is extremely too noisy for any kind of effects box, but Overall it did have a tube-like sound to it after i tweaked it enough to do some jamming with it, but I am not sure if it's even worth the sale price.

        Comments about Behringer Vintage Tube Overdrive VT911 Effects Pedal:

        I don't understand how Behringer manages to make such great pedals for so cheap. This one sounds great and even comes in a metal casing unlike most other Behringer pedals. It doesn't sound quite as good as a real tube amp but then again this pedal costs about one thousand less than a good tube amp so it's good enough for me. If there is one thing wrong with this pedal it's that when you turn it on you go blind from the LED that comes on. But when I use it, I'm usually standing at 6'2" above it so it's not too big a deal.

        Comments about Behringer Vintage Tube Overdrive VT911 Effects Pedal:

        Apparently I can't actually reference the name of the other pedal that I want to compare it to, because the word after Big is considered profane by the website police, but you know which pedal I'm talking about. Anyway, on with the review.

        So when you see a tube powered overdrive pedal for this price, you buy it sound unseen, even if you have a bunch of overdrives, distortion and fuzz pedals. I mean you could see a bad movie and waste the same amount of money on a ticket and popcorn at least here you have something substantial to show for it. So as soon as my pedal arrived, I plugged it straight into the amp and put the pedal through its paces to see what this pedal can do. Now I have a really good top of the line tube overdrive pedal to compare this to, so I am comparing this against that pedal and all my other distortion, fuzz and overdrive pedals. For the money this pedal is a home run. It generates a pretty good overdrive, but it needs a lot of playing with to get those few sweet tones, but when you find them, you know it. You can also use this pedal in the on mode as a bypass to warm the tone of other pedals, which I see using that option quite a bit. The pedal seems sturdy, but I do know that other Behringer pedals have had construction issues in which the switch has pushed the circuit board of its mounts when pressed too hard, so its too soon to tell. When I was playing with this pedal it reminded me of my newer EHX BM, but with a slightly warmer tone. The tone does change when it warms up, so I would suggest letting it warm up before you start trying to find your sweet spot. This is a can't lose pedal for the price. The only reason why I gave it 4 stars is because I have a much better tube overdrive that is a solid 5.

        • Pushing A Tube Amp

        Comments about Behringer Vintage Tube Overdrive VT911 Effects Pedal:

        I back ordered this in February when I saw a tube powered pedal on sale. Kind of a curiosity and I figured at worst I'd get my money back.

        When I received it, the packaging was pretty good and it came with its own power cable. The price I paid on sale was pretty impressive, and normally I'm pre-disposed to like Behringer stuff.

        I ran it straight to my Mesa Rectoverb 25 on both Clean and Pushed with a fair bit of volume. The gain was set to give a nice bell sound on the clean channel, and just below grit on the pushed channel (same knob for both settings).

        It was actually.. very surprising. On pushed it was nearly beautiful. Very usable, nice DISTORTION. On clean it was still pretty good DISTORTION.

        Note the word DISTORTION, there's nothing overdrive about this guy. If vintage meant high gain DISTORTION, this pedal is definitely vintage.

        On both channels, I had more of a heavy rock/metal tone than I did a vintage tone. It was kind of funny and surprising. When I think of overdrive, I think of a TS9. A TS9 this thing is not.

        Anyway, the tone was definitely satisfying. But that's it, it's pretty much "the tone".

        The level knob is mostly useless below noon. If you set it below noon it'll just suck your sustain like a sustain vampire. Seriously. I tried it on both a Jazzmaster and SH-4 pickup. The Jazzmaster obviously died a little faster than the SH-4, but still, it sucked sustain.

        The Gain knob, you literally shut the entire effect off at 0. Turn it very slightly and it's already very gainy. The difference from just barely on to full gain isn't really that much. It's super gainy from the start.

        The tone knob, well, that works best out of all of the knobs.

        I can get an almost decent heavily pushed overdrive sound by setting the level at about noon and the gain as low as it'll go, but it's still way heavier than an overdrive pedal should be.

        Again, think DISTORTION. And it's a pleasing distortion, but you wont get more than 3-4 quality sounds from it.

        The chassis doesn't get hot, and I haven't bothered to change the tube yet, but I will. Everything was ran on stock settings out of the box.

        Over-all, I'd say this is a nice DISTORTION pedal to push a tube amp for the price.

        I got it just to play around with it. I didn't run it on solid state, but I imagine it'd be OK. As I stated on clean, it was still very gainy.

        Seriously, if I were to classify this as vintage anything, I'd classify it as vintage metal/vintage hard rock.

        It's not warm and fizzy, it's pretty legit for a harder, not-modern metal sound. Definitely usable for a modern rock tone.

        I did roll back my volume and while it adds some versatility, it's still pretty high gain and kills the sustain like a lowly set volume. You can get a little extra versatility, and maybe some transparency, but it's still pretty high gain.

        It's not very versatile, but if you need a cheap distortion pedal that can get you a legit quality tone to play this is a pretty good little box.

        Comments about Behringer Vintage Tube Overdrive VT911 Effects Pedal:

        I have owned some fine tube amps in the past like '67 Deluxe Reverb, Orange Tiny Terror, Blackheart Little Giant and now I have a Kustom Defender 5watt and the new Micro Terror. This real tube overdrive reminds me of my old BK Butler/Chandler real tube drivers, it even has a similar shape, 3 buttons and everything...those used to costs about as much as this one, now those have to be hand made and costs 100 times as much. Good tube overdrive, will make any amp sound like a good tube amp!
