Behringer's neo-classic "British EQ" brings back the warmth and musicality of those '60s and '70s mega-console desks that made music history.

FEATURES
  • Premium ultra low-noise, high headroom analog mixer
  • 4 state-of-the-art XENYX Mic Preamps comparable to standalone boutique preamps

This is a good deal. I use it for my acoustic trio. Upright electric bass and bass guitar through a Behringer bass EQ pedal or clean, two separate acoustic guitars ready (for when the percussionist plays rhythm), two hand percussion kit overheads, three vocals. Still left over inputs for the occasional bass drum and other stuff if needed. Has an input for MP3 during the break. Easy to run monitors as long as everyone is satisfied with the same mix. Sounds really good. Reverbs are typical for built in effects. Just good enough. I wouldn't record them, just wet the signal enough to keep it from being bone dry. Past that, they sound pretty cheesy like all the other boards. Another weakness I haven't seen others mention is that the power adapter attaches with tiny pins instead of the sturdy 'computer' style input most boards have. These are easy to break and the adapter is not marked well. I used white paint to mark the arrow on the top side so I would accidentally jam the pins in the wrong way. It doesn't seat well either once it is attached. That being said, I use it with powered speakers. That way, you could go as big as you wanted with this little board and get huge speakers and still have a simple set up that thrashes. Right now, I use two 15"s and don't have any trouble with medium size clubs. We have some big "two man" Mackies to drag out for the bigger gigs. I have had 0 problems in 3 years. Easy set up, which saves time, frustration and makes money. As cheap as they are, I've thought of buying a backup for the road, but never have needed it. We carried a much bigger 16 channel Mackie and all the outboard nonsense. It broke down and we couldn't get parts or service, even through MF. The difference in sound live isn't noticeable in the average venue to 99% of the audience. Spend $2500 on an Allen Heath and get that last 1%. If you're good players, nobody cares.

I used this unit one time and when I set it up I noticed that the pins on the power cord connection were VERY thin. I did not dare unplug it but the second time I used it the plug had been removed and when I tried, very carefully to attach the cord to the unit one of the pins broke off. Even after purchasing the extended warranty they made me purchase a new power cord. I need it right away so I went ahead and did that but if I had time I would send it back and not deal with Musicians Friend again. I have purchased a lot of equipment and instruments from them and have not had a problem until now but this is not acceptable. The power cord came with the unit so should have been considered part of the unit for the warranty so they have lost a good customer over this. I have a lot more equipment to buy and will go elsewhere.

    Comments about Behringer XENYX 1202FX Mixer:

    This is a cool little mixer.....pretty good effects for a unit at this price. Very comparable to higher priced compact units. In my live applications, pretty quiet too.
    If it lasts a year or 2 without any problems, this will be a very very recommended product.

        Comments about Behringer XENYX 1202FX Mixer:

        I use this mixer in my home music room. I have 3 key boards, an Irig and two mics plugged into it. It works fine. BUT, don't expect this mixer to behave like a high priced "big board" mixer. It is not designed for that type of use.

        I really like the onboard effects (but they are very basic - and that's what I appreciate about it.) You don't need an engineering degree to operate it and get a good sound out of it.

        I also like the fact that it is stereo. This is great because all of my keyboards and the Irig are stereo.

        I bought this to use with my karaokee computer program. It allows me to practice to try to get my voice back. It has been a long time since I have sang anything in front of people and I am in hopes that his will help.

          Comments about Behringer XENYX 1202FX Mixer:

          The size allows me to use this on top of my keyboard and gives me four XLR mike outlets with reverb. Good sound and compact, a great little mixer for the money. Only negative is no on/off switch and the electric plug if fragile. Otherwise a good deal - I have two actually since sometimes we have four or five people in the group.

            Ok, to the point . . . had this for about 2 years, very light duty (home stuff), sounds good, effects good, but after about 8 months one of the volume knobs developed a bad connection, and others began sounding 'scratchy' when adjusted. The pots (internal adjustable capacitors) are sealed, and cant be cleaned. Headphone out also lost it's left side output.

              I purchased this for practice use, and found it worked well using two Anchor AN-100 powered speakers. Well enough, that I now use it when I
              play out with my acoustic/electric. I love the effects for my vocals as well as the guitar.

              Comments about Behringer XENYX 1202FX Mixer:

              I have this mixer and also the 1002 model from Behringer. This one is more versatile since it has more mic inputs and the onboard effects. I don't anticipate using any effects other than the reverb for what I want to do.

              The EQ works well, I was able to use it and a matching transformer to get my acoustic/electric sounding good in the board.

              You get 2 sets of outputs, plus a record out, plus headphones, so you could use this for recording yourself, recording a band, or running live sound with front of the house speakers and monitors.

              There is a slight limitation in that you can only do one monitor mix ... it will just be what you are sending to the FOH. Same thing for the headphone jack, but for a lot of purposes, such as solo or small group, this should be fine.

              I think the FX can be assigned or not assigned to the Control room set of outputs, so that might be useful if you want to put a lot of reverb on the singer's voice as he sings, but not put that on your recording. ( John Lennon liked lots of reverb on his voice, and I like having it on there too in my headphones as I track. )

              You also have FX send , which you have to return to another channel, so if you have a great effect unit you want to use on one channel, you can patch that in. I like to use the onboard reverb, with just a small amount on the guitar, and a little bit more on the voice to sweeten the sound without being too obvious on the recording.

              I am using it for home recordings of practice sessions and songwriting. I plan on using this or the 1002 for live sound - vocals and acoustic guitar, banjo and mando - with my powered speakers and perhaps a sub.

              It also has phantom power if you need that for your mic. Mine are all dynamics, so can't really say much on that besides the fact that it is there on your mic inputs.
