Recieved this pedal a couple of days ago, and it's a hit. I decided I needed one of these after watching several youtube demos. I had originally purchased it to transform my guitar signal into bass for recording on Garage Band. This pedal is quite funky, and it really can really summons the Bootsy Collins. You can dial in up to two octives below your line, and add a little hair to it distortion-wise if you like. If you are a fan of funk and you don't want to break the bank, this gets the job done. I've read all kinds of Behrenger bashing online- mostly from gear snobs, but also from folks that received a faulty product. The plain truth is: these pedals are cheaply manufactured in order to keep the cost down. Yes the case is made of plastic (strong ABS plastic) and the knobs and jacks feel a little dicey. There is a tiny chance that your unit will not power up out of the box (though this has never happened to me with any of the 8 or so Behringer pedals I own.) This is not the bullet-proof construction of say a ProCo Rat. Still, if you treat these pedals with an ounce of respect, you will end up with a durable and quite enjoyable clone of timeless pedal (and for cheap!) I've had the TS808 clone on my board for about a year and it's amazing (TO800)- and not a single problem.

If you want to kick this thing on for a solo or a bit of riff-age it may just suit your needs, but it falls short in a big way for me. It tracks the low E on a guitar 95% of the time which is not good enough. Even in poly-mode it fails often enough to be relegated to 'just for kicks'. I don't care about the fuzz mode, so that feature isn't factoring into this review. Drop D is not going to happen. The tracking failures go up as you move down from a low F. I tried experimenting with different pickup and tone knob combinations (tele clone) to see if I could feed a tone that it could track better...no joy. I also experimented with the bass input...Nathan. I'm not a gear snob and I actually like Behringer quite a bit, but this pedal just doesn't do it for me with enough consistency to justify its presence. I'd be interested to see how this stacks up against Boss's OC3 (think that's the one it's a rip-off of), but I'm not going to throw my money down the drain (I do feel like that is what has gone on with this purchase) on another pedal just to find out. I suggest demo-ing this pedal at your local music store and perhaps trying a shoot-out with it and the Boss OC3 before purchasing to make sure you're getting what you need out this thing. Again, it may very well do everything you need it to, but it didn't cut for me.

Did not track well - especially in te lower registers. I was careful to send a solid, clear single note signal directly to the unit and all I got was warble. I bought the Boss OC-3 instead. It tracks well and gives a big, fat second octave in poly mode.

It's a pretty good product, but I expected more from Behringer. You've gotta be careful how you set it for live performance versus practice.

I tried this pedal in every setting of its own possibilities and could not achieve the sound I expected; there was no OCTA anything in any higher notes up the fretboard of a Strat.

However; I tried it with my son's BASS guitar and enjoyed this pedal quite a bit!

It should only have listing under Bass effects. Simply because it just didn't make any difference while playing in the higher notes.

But I will at least give a four because of its abilities with a BASS.

It's a bit of a curiosity that so many musicians review Behringer pedals favorably but always say how they've read bad reviews but never had that 'bad' experience with their purchase. My Behringer SO400 pedal has worked as well as any octaver padel I've tried. I'm actually amazed at how genuine the bass sound is. I use it with a looper pedal to add bass to my loops during live performances, it adds a completely believable bass sound to my loops. Since I own a nice Fender Jaguar Bass I wouldn't use this for recording, but for what I purchase it for, it's perfect.

A decent octave pedal (especially for the price), but I bought it to use with guitar in order to simulate bass guitar on recordings and found it somewhat frustrating to use. Works OK on most low notes, but once you get really low some distortion occurs. Then when you hit higher notes it becomes even less reliable, as you either get distortion or an entirely different note altogether. On the plus side, it does add an interesting effect to guitar soloing. That said, I ended up sending it back.

Very pleasantly surprised how well the poly mode works. I adapted my acoustic guitar for this effect by fitting a cheap magnetic pickup within the body so it is invisible - and only covers the bottom 3 strings. As the pickup has a fair distance to the strings it is not so susceptible to picking transients. As a result it seems to cope with barre chords with no tracking problems. Feeding it into a Zoom bass multi effect results is a system that would definitely be gig-able.

So far I am not impressed. I am using a 9v battery and I am wondering if it might work better with an AC adapter. I think this might be the case because as the 9v battery charge wears out there is a notable worsening of note tracking. As it is, I notice it dropping plenty of notes and the polyphonic doesn't seem to work at all.

No. 1, It is in a plastic casing. A stomp box made with cheap plastic. Give me a break!
No. 2, Put a nine volt battery in it and tried it out. Hmm... no sound whatsoever.
Bottom line: It did not work either. Sent it back for a refund.
Guess I'll pay the extra and get a Boss pedal. I know those are durable.
