    Are they any good or are the a turd? I would want one some day soon but do not know anything about them? I got their microphones and they are fantastic. Are these any good or junk. Thanks.

    Why are they no good? Seen a video on one. Sounded OK? Not as good as my Johnson. But OK. And cheap used. What is wrong with them?

    I'm sure there are reviews and sound samples on Youtube. I own three Behringer mixers and a couple condenser mics. I'm sure the thing is not complete junk on the inside.

    I think getting one would depend on price and need. Even if I was on a hard budget and dire need I don't think I would spend more than $200. If it was more I would be looking at other options. For comparison I've seen many good condition Roland JC-120s sell for $400, sometimes a bit less, on Craigslist

    Used 80 dollars. And videos on YouTube. I would want the speaker to match it. Send it back. Waranty would kick in. Get it refubished and bam great ampilifer. Win Win. But if it sounded like poo. I will run away from it.

    Behringer/Bugera amps are really not the most reliable ones. People have a lot of problems and complain about them all the time. Although, there are people that are very satisfied with their Behringer/Bugera amplifier and never had any problems. It's like a lottery when you are buying one. You could get a good one, but it's more likely for you to get a bad one.

    Junk, just waiting to crap out on you. Might as well use the money to light your cigars.

    Wow, timely question. I have a 10 watt combo with a 10" that I never really ever used. I was going to give it to my son who is ready to start playing, so I pulled it out last night. Not lying, I could not coax a usable tone out of it and tried for about an hour. Don't go there. Not sure how big an amp you are looking for, but if you want something that performs that isn't going to break the bank, maybe an original version Carvin Legacy. I have a 2x12 combo that I really like (and I have some very nice other amps).

    Though I must say, I've heard good things about their newish digital mixer. However, it's not priced like your typical "Bell-ringer" product.

    Love the Behringer X32 Compact mixer - awesome. No troubles.

    Love my Bugera V22 amp. No troubles.

    My experience with these two products is positive. Don't hurt me...

    I would not own one, however...

    Was in a club a couple of years ago and guitarist had some really great tone going on. When I made it to the front, I saw he was using one of those VAmpire combos. Sounded great.

    I like the reverb, dirt, and clean tones on my gmx110. Gain channel is noisy though. I like the brand in spite of their reputation.

    The V-Amp was a great multi-effect.

    A funny thing about Bugera, they were all the rage a few years
    back, then when it became well known that they were made by
    Behringer, suddenly they were no good.

    Things that make you go Hmmmmm...
