    I could finish building my proposed pedalboard at a stroke for less than £60 if I got some Behringer pedals!
    I want a decent reverb (DR600), a chorus (UC200), and a graphic EQ (EQ700).
    I know they are cheaply built BOSS copies, but they would just sit on a home pedalboard.
    So should I get them as placeholders until I can afford to get better originals?
    Or are they really that $h1te!

    I have used the EQ pedal in rehearsal many times. It works just fine; but the cables can slip out of the jacks relatively easy, if things get moved around a bit. Otherwise, no problems.

    Been watching that YT vid again and the Behringer reverb seems to be the most different from the original (RV-5).
    The EQ and chorus are claimed to be dead on though.
    I might have to try one.

    People complain about the plastic case, but they're tuffer than you'd think.
    My main problem is with the delays and reverbs.. it's fx blend and not fx level. Result is when you turn up the delays, dry signal goes down. It works but it makes it harder to get the level just right.... but at the price, might be something you can live with...

    Ps this might not apply to the vintage style analog delay..

    I agree! I have sixteen of their pedals and not one of them has failed. I can even change the battery in roughly thirty seconds.

    FWIW: Their "PB1000" board is the best! :2c:

    I think there's better choices, somebody's mentioned Joyo already and check out TomSline/Aroma pedals, some of them are killer. I had a Beringer Super Fuzz and it was Super Shitty.
