    I just made this video doing a head to head comparison of these two pedals. The Behringer does surprisingly well with polyphonic octaves!

    Nice demo man! I love my micro pog, but that US600 sounds great too! I've been thinking about picking up a few Behringers lately, mainly for sounds I like but don't use often. Honestly, the worst thing about Behringer to me is the blinding LED. They seem decent to me, once a little tape has been put in place!

    I have the US600 and the only bad thing I'll say about it is that every piece of rubber on that thing will eventually peel off. But the sounds are good, the tracking is good, and for what I use it for (octave raises) it's great. however, I had a POG2 and couldn't find any real use for it so I returned it. sometimes I guess a pedal does too much (for me)

    Seems like lot of Behringers copy the higher end pretty well. I kind of wanna just pick this one up just play around with it.

    Is that a reverb?

    So far, I'm most interested in the pitch shifter and vibrato.

    I've never heard a Verbzilla. Mainly I'm interested in the discontinued Boss clones, since the originals get pretty pricey. They even make a Spectrum clone!

    I think it was part of Boss's original line of pedals, but it wasn't made long. It basically shifts the EQ a bit. I think it sounds cool, but mainly I'm surprised that they cloned such an obscure pedal!

    Right, kind of a given, though the octave down sounds much better in the us600 IMO, the POG sounds more like the harpsichord in Kontak, where the us600 sounds very much like a bass guitar, and it tracks, even chords, very well.
