With limited funds towards gear, I surf "Best bang for the Buck" posts and read as many reviews as humanly possible before I purchase pedals. And a lot of my setup is DiY as I can because, well, because it's fun for me to create my own stuff.

One day I was tired of lugging around a 212 SS amp to church and wanted something simple to go direct and it would have to fit on my (suitcase)board. After surfing around the internet, I read a review on the Behringer Tube Amp Modeler. $25 to Amazon later, I finally used it tonight direct at practice with the church I go to.

Nice warm sound. No added noise. And my pedals fit right into the mix nicely. My setup goes: HSH Partscaster>Boss BD-2>Joyo Ultimate Drive>Zoom MS50G>Zoom MS50G>Behringer Tube Modeler

The two Zooms were programmed for ambience/reverb and delays.

Cool story, man. I've had both a Behringer GDI 21 and the Tube Amp Modeler, which is the same pedal in a smaller footprint. Both are clones of the Tech 21 GT2.

For $25, I think you'd be hard pressed to find a better dirt pedal. They really do sound good.

I've got two Zooms as well, an MS-100BT and a G3. There's so much you can do with them.

Sounds like a very cool bang-for-the-buck rig you've got. Nice setup.

I have another Behringer pedal on the board, the Echo Machine. I think it's great, but it translate as well direct. I think Im going to replace it on my board with my Fish 'n Chips

There is nothing wrong with Behringer gear. The trouble is usually the mental hangup of the person using it, or even worse, refusing to use it, because it says "Behringer".

I have no problem with the branding in any way. I didnt plan to have this as a "Behringer's Not Bad Thread," just tossing out there, that it worked like a charm for a VERY affordable DI solution which, in turn, saved gear hauling hassles.

I disagree with the blanket statement that "there's nothing wrong with Behringer gear." Having owned and borrowed a fair number of their pedals, they are more often than not hissy. From what I can tell most if not all of their pedals are made with flimsy plastic parts.

I'd classify them more as "works good enough sometimes".
