Comments about Behringer VT999 Vintage Tube Monster Classic Tube Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

When I first played through this "pedal"(it's huge!) I didn't like the sound at all. The gain was very crackly and not smooth when playing through (Les Paul Studio, Ibanez RG320). I replaced the Bugera 12AX7C (cheap Chinese made tube) with a JJ ECC83 (12AX7) and WOW what a difference. Gain is now no longer brittle sounding and rolls off smooth with guitar volume or the Gain knob. I am very satisfied with the tones this thing produces and use it in place of my original ValveKing 100's high gain stage. The noise gate is a big plus as well. Overall I would recommend this pedal to anyone on a budget looking for some cool Zeplin / AC-DC style sounds.

Don't let the name Behringer scare you off from buying this pedal! I run this pedal into a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe Amp (on the clean channel) and what an awesome tone! This pedal is a Steal of a Deal!

Comments about Behringer VT999 Vintage Tube Monster Classic Tube Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

This overdrive is very versatile.It can go from crunch to very heavy gain.You can experiment with different 12AX7 tubes if you don't like the stock tube.If you put a compressor after it you can get M.B. rectifier type drive.Don't do the Bitmo mod,it's not worth it-trust me.It's perfect as is-AND the price is right.Don't stomp on the knobs,they attach directly to the circuit board-FYI.

    Comments about Behringer VT999 Vintage Tube Monster Classic Tube Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

    Been on a pedal frenzy lately. Have one rig that is just about perfect but was looking to build a second one specifically for a practice combo amp that, aside from overdrive, chorus and a less than perfect reverb is pretty much bereft of other effects. Stumbled accross this pedal on the cheap and did some research. Despite my less than positive experiences with some other Beringer equipment (mostly PA/recording stuff) the reviews persuaded me to give this a try.

    I am pleasantly surprised. The stock tube did not blow me away (ok...a little noisy/muddy even at low gain) but after swapping a couple other 12A_7 tubes have found a couple really cool sounding options. So a couple lessons learned...mostly that, despite the fact that this appears to be a starved plate system, the tube definitely comes into play. It's worth the time to google what alternate tubes others have lucked into and spend the small amount required to swap it out.

    Gain, volume and tone controls are all responsive and tweaks make a notable difference - lots of good combinations with distinct sounds. Note that this is a BIG pedal - a space eater that doesn't really fit on most single line pedal boards. Also - it has a "soft" engagement - i.e. no satisfying click - so you need to visually (or audibly) check to make sure you've switched it on/off. Bypass quality appears to be very good. Have not really had the need to use the noise gate - it's the first pedal in my rig after the wah so it's getting a pretty clean feed.

    Overall - its not in the class of my Radial London and Hollywood Bones pedals but for an inexpensive tube driven pedal for a secondary rig it has definitely been worth the price I paid.

    Hope this review is helpful.
