Overall good value pedal
8 January 2013
Summary: I wanted to get a pitch shifter to play lonely boy and a few other similar effects, I couldn't afford the boss, so I gave this ago. I totally love it, it does all the things the upper shifter does at a quarter of the price. On,y thing I don't like is the plastic case. It is also hard to use, but that could be due to my low intellect.
Buy this if you want to spend under $100 for a harmonist+pitch shifter.

Summary: Most people's reviews for behringer go something like "poor quality, but great for the money." My friend has multiple behringer pedals and none of them have broken. This is my first behringer pedal, and I have to say that it's better than the PS-6, which I wasn't very impressed with. The tracking is much better with chords. It can sound kind of computery when you get to 2 octaves up, but I think of it as something else to use creatively.
Don’t waste money on overpriced Harmonizers, don’t do it. Just say no!!!

Summary: I get concerned when I hear bad reviews on many Behringer products. I truly believe that for whatever reason their price automatically causes some peoples ears to not hear what is there. It would seem that the price alone causes strange and bias opinions. This pedal is flat out amazing, (at any price range) and when I hear people say, I don’t get this setting or that setting that tells me they have not been at it very long.
Had a no hassle experience with the obtaining of this great product

Summary: Great pedal for the money.I am finding that i only use a couple of the settings more frequently than all the others.I am old school.Love one function effects,however,could not pass up considering the price.
The price makes this pedal. Great for amateurs, professionals maybe not.

Summary: I bought this pedal because it is literally the cheapest one on the market. I play mostly experimental and improvised music and I bought it to use with a microphone and occasionally a guitar. It's not fantastic, but it does the job. Some of the settings are more useful than others. I personally like the "trem bar" and the "harmonist." I'm not really sure the point of the "detune" function and the "flutter" seems a bit nichey.
Summary: Cheap build quality. the jack on mine is a tad buggy. now the sound and tracking is superb. like it more than a whammy I got. but the build quality is crap and it doesn't like some of my 1/4' cables. nice for recording, maybe not so nice for a gigging cat. for the money it's awesome. i primarily use the pitch shifter and flutter. harmonizer is decent. i always liked actually doing the harmonies after anyhow.
Summary: Well i had some really unrealistic expectations for this pedal; especially after seeing all the demo's on youtube and what not. Not to say that this item was a complete bust; just know what to expect from a $50 Pitch Shifter. it aint no whammy pedal, but it does the diggidy. Can't play chords sometimes. u try to make a G or something with the harmonizer and it sounds like a flanger pedal is being molested with a cinder block.
Summary: This has to be the second worst effect pedal I ever bought, the worst was the Fishman blender pedal for the acoustic. But that is another review. Anyway, I've turned knobs on this unit and nothing happens. Nothing changes. Not sure what you have to do to get sound out of this pedal. I took it out of my pedal lineup. I was able to get this one sound out of it, but I didn't see much use for that sound. Maybe I have a defective unit .....
Summary: I have been playing guitar for about ten years now and I am in no way a pro by any measure, but I can tell you that this pedal does do what it says it will do. With that being said, it is made of plastic but seems robust enough to last for awhile as long as you don't abuse it. That means don't stomp on it hard, don't drop it, don't drag it around by the cord, or kick it around too much. It does not come with a wall adapter so if you need one buy one.
Summary: I never have to invest in a tremolo for each of my guitars I only need this pedal and I now never have to worry about going out of tune because Im just using my foot to do whammy effects and it can sound different depending how I play and press my foot on the pedal and the sounds are realistic and combinations of setting the pedal are many a very valuable pedal to have at a great price even if your guitar doesnt have a tremelo you can rock like you have one and more!!!
