Boss and Mod Tone are the best ones, to compress the sound get this one

Rene B, amazon.com
12 January 2012
  • Summary: I tested the boss and the mod tone ones, no objections, those are the best ones. I dindnt wanted to spend more than $50 on a pedal that all it does is compress the sound, if you dont know what that means just look at this video [...] i got this one along with the power supplie unit, it works just fine, the pedal its made of plastic, its mented to be good so it wont break if you turn it of and turn it on, it does what it haves to do, the best advised is to get the power...

Behringer CS400 Compressor Sustainer

Nelson Aaron, amazon.com
3 January 2012
  • Summary: Terrible product - while it added some sustain it did a better job of adding a great deal of noise. Perhaps it was defective and a previously returned product as package appeard to have been restapled when arrived. While a very reasonable price point, not worth the money. Have since returned to Amazon. Their return policy works extremely well.

budget compressor/sustainer pedal

R. Morton "Nick Fury", amazon.com
27 December 2011
  • Summary: Behringer makes a LOT of electronics for guitar and bass. I have an FCB10 that I use and like, great controller for the price. The CS400 at roughly 20.00 is a decent pedal that will 'get the job done'. Is it equivalent to a Boss, Dynacomp, Visual Sound or Keeley compressor...nope. You will get 20.00 worth of use out of it though for sure. The housing is pretty flimsey and when you change the battery its a PITA.

Stupid change

Victor J Leonardo, amazon.com
7 December 2011
  • Summary: Ordered this pedal to add to my current chain of Behringer pedals that I have been very happy with. Somewhere along the line they changed the size of the 9v adapter plug so now it will not work with my power supply. The male plug is much too large now. What happened to standards? Not happy about now burning up 9v batteries until I can find a plug changer or have to buy a second adapter and rework my pedal board. Very stupid change.

  • Summary: So i bought this thing because I am a drummer just starting to mess with some bass so i didn't want to get something too expensive but something that will at least work. Piece of crap wont even power on now just days after my return item window expired.

BUY THIS PEDAL!!!!!

  • Summary: I was very skeptical about this Pedal but I have to admit that it has added a lot of body and strength to the sound of my guitar. If your looking for that boost of balls in the sound of your playing I recommend this pedal.

Just Like "Brand X" At A Much Better Price

Brandon, amazon.com
2 April 2011
  • Summary: Years ago I owned the Boss version of this pedal. I was happy to find that Behinger's version is virtually identical in sound and operation to the Boss unit. The most important thing is that it's quiet and transparent when not in use. There's only two minor issues that keep it from getting 5 stars. One, the unit is made of plastic. It seems sturdy enough, but it's not metal. Secondly, the power input is on the side next to the input jack.

Great performance, sub par construction

Handsome Johnny, amazon.com
23 March 2011
  • Summary: The title says it all. Great performance, sub par construction. I bought this pedal for the compression and sustain, though, and am very pleased. I use it for both bass and guitar, and it processes the signals well. I am sure it would work well for other instruments or on recordings also. Cheaply made, though. I removed a spring that was seemingly attached to nothing inside the unit.

love this pedal

Justin Michaelson Bourne, amazon.com
12 March 2011
  • Summary: I can't give 5 stars because behringer makes cheap shelled pedals. I play for a screamo band, and I use a lot of funk in my bass style, this thing is a beautiful thing. Awesome pedal. I don't know about the battery life, and all these behringer pedals feel one bad stomp away from being broke..the good news is that the pedal is affordable.
