I was immediately transformed into George Clinton
on July 13, 2011
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.
