I purchased one of these back in 2006 and Bang, it's October 2012.

I purchased it originally because I was a gigging live musician, and I wanted to check out 'modelers' for home and hobby and i didn't want to spend a lot for something I didn't expect to use more than novelty.

Took me a few days to not so much figure out how to use it (which takes maybe 20-30 minutes if you learn slow) but to get a real 'feel' for it.

Once you get a 'feel' for it, you can set up usable patches and yes, do light gigging with it, why not? Just treat it like an on off switch and NOT a stomp box, it will last you a good long time.

What I do is I run it last in line like a stomp box. I run a guitar to a tube screamer (any boost will work), to a wah pedal, to the V-amp (ALWAYS LAST IN LINE) to whatever amp I am playing for the night.

The reason I use the external wah is because I don't wan't to step on the V-amp any more than needed, it's not nearly as sturdy as a dedicated wah and the way most of us will use a wah, the Behringer is best off to the side if you don't want to replace it next year.

What I find useful for for me, is on my practice amps (or when running through a PA) for adding reverb and delay and making the practice amps much louder and bigger. And for the better amps (sounds great through a big Fender Twin to keep the volume down but make it sound big in a small room) a splash of delay is perfect.

Set up a few amp models for clean and crunchy, splashes of reverb and delay... sometimes I use the harmony feature.. seems to be a Whammy pedal clone to some degree, but mostly I am going for clean boosts, high gains and ambiance. I've never really screwed with any of the modulation stuff, nor have I ever used the modulation/expression pedal.. that's just me.. I need dependable and usable gain and ambiance patches that will give me good enough tones and decent FX. For the price, if this got stolen, I'd get another, no questions asked. That's why I take it to lower end gigs in the first place.. and it is perfectly suited for the task

No one is ever going to steal it and over the years, I have spent exponentially more on exponentially less when it comes to usable FX.

Awkwardly enough,I've burned through high quality rack gear that didn't serve me as well.

--

Listen to everyone.. there is a 'slight' delay between patches. This isn't 'Pro Grade' kit. This didn't turn out to be the issue I figured it would be in general, still I wish there wasn't a delay between patches and it's the one thing (and a big thing for some folks) I would tell anyone who might be thinking about getting one.. if you want to switch between chorus and flange and reverbs and delays all in one song over and over, DON'T GET THIS. If you want one or two changes a song, you can set this up to make it work well enough (seriously, I use it professionally, the delay between patches is manageable for what I do)

--

---

Look, it's very inexpensive. And it is effective. For the price it can't be beat.

This is a budget device, it is built like one, but with tweaking, it sounds like anything you want.

In front of a small practice amp, it will make it louder and add good usable reverb and delay.

Hot Rod Devilles, Blues Jr's (I have a frontman 15R that I modded and fit a 10" in and through that it sounds totally killer.. huge), I've used it on all of them before.. I will again.

Could the sounds and construction be better? Not at this price. This isn't a toy.

Anyone who says it sounds like crud simply didn't give it the love it may of took to get it setup right (amp or PA, these are great usable tones).

Anyone who says it sounds as good as high end stuff, hasn't played high end stuff.

Anyone who is looking for respectable fx and amp/distortion options and is tight on cash, this is your unit. I'm glad to see they are still selling them.... if/when this one finally goes, I'll be getting another. At this price they are disposable.

It has basically one distortion sound and the amp models just change the parameters and EQ on it. It's actually a pretty good sound ... I just wanted more flexibility. It's not like you can't adjust for different styles but everything with distortion has kind of the same underlying tone to it.

You have to use two hands to work it. Kind of inconvenient when holding a guitar. I find myself picking it up off the floor a lot.

I don't have huge feet but I find the up and down pedals to be too close together to get my feet on them.

Patch changes are too slow for live use.

The expression pedal came out of the box completely useless but after doing a calibration it worked. But it is not awesome.

The noise gate seems to work pretty well and it has some decent sounds and effects for the money. But I would probably be happier with a more expensive unit. But then I would have to pay a lot more money.

Comments about Behringer X V-Amp Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

I think the delay and the wah is pretty cheesy. I like the modulation effects but you can only use one at a time. I like the "Classic Clean" model, the rest are pretty weak.
This is a good pedal for beginners, you'll learn what the different effects sound like but you'll eventually want more out of your multieffects.
You can't use 2 modulation effects at once. You're better off buying single purpose effects pedals (stompboxes),
It's sturdy
It's a good buy.

save your money and buy something better

By Diab Soule

from Iowa

Comments about Behringer X V-Amp Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

The price on this pedal is cheap and you get what you pay for. This thing is pure crap. I bought one, trying to save some money. It was fun to play with and had a decent effects on it. But after just over a month of use the thing just quit working. It would turn on, but I could not get any sound out of it. I sent it back to Behringer and they sent me another one. Well not even a month later that one quit working too. I went through the whole process again. After the third one quit working Behringer did not want to exchange. I bought a digitech multi pedal and after 3 years or hard use I have had no problems what so ever. Save yourself the time and aggravation and just buy one of the other multi pedals now, the v-amp is horrible.

Surprisingly high-quality tone, just don't stomp on it.

By Uncle Sean

from El Paso, TX

See all my reviews

Comments about Behringer X V-Amp Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

This is an excellent effects unit for any casual musician or even a somewhat working musician such as myself. I'm happy rehearsing and gigging with it, and I know I can count on it to deliver the effects and textures I need.
While this unit doesn't have the sheer numbers of the V-Amp or V-Amp Pro, it still contains the most useful models and effects. Especially nice is the Tube Screamer, which I'm using in the FX loop of my Windsor. The delays and flangers also work really well, and the pitch bend/harmonizer isn't bad either.
The sound quality is really good, and it works really well in my FX loop. However, there's a noticeable lag (maybe half a second or a bit more) when changing patches. The wah is very sensitive within a small range of the pedal and doesn't do much outside that range, but that might be because I'm feeding it such a hot signal. Also, although the case is sturdy plastic, it's still plastic. I step gingerly just in case.
You're getting an insane amount of processing power and rocking tones.

fun and at a great price

Comments about Behringer X V-Amp Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

overall for the active musician this is a nice piece to add to your quiver of effects
this is a great little machine, and for the price you can't go wrong, i use mine mostly for creativity, i have but don't recommend gigging with it (even though it does work) i'm just afraid of someone stomping on it to hard (you know how it is in that moment when everything is blocked out except the music, seems that you forget the price of the machine) so if you want something at a great price thats a lot of fun that you can slap the headphones on go nuts, this is what you want.
great value

Good choice for Tube Amp

By rmj5

from Atlanta, GA

See all my reviews

Comments about Behringer X V-Amp Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

If you're one of the thousands of people with the new generation of 5w tube amps (Epiphone Valve Junior, Blackheart, Fender) and need a decent sounding reverb, compression, and noise gate that won't break the bank, this is a good bet. After trying several cheap pedals for reverb, I ended up settling on this. The Cathedral reverb on a low mix setting and short tail actually sounds really good to my ears. And the noise gate does what it should and the compression sounds nice and MXR'ish for funk and chicken-pickin. The delay is well, digital, but with the reverb behind it sounds almost vintage. Most of the amp models are worthless in front of a good amp, but would be cool if you were using it as a headphone amp. The Rat distortion simulation is horrible, but the Tube Screamer simulation is actually usable and sounds better than some dedicated Tube Screamer clone pedals that I've used before.
