"Don't delay, buy this pedal!!"

Excerpt: Sound quality's awesome! The sound doesn't respond to my playing. This is completely compatible with my musical styles and my production aims. I haven't used this pedal on stage yet. I'd like to see an expression pedal option added to an updated model, preferably wireless.

Summary: this is a cool pedal..nice heavy duty ,metal case ..sturdy.. mmmmmmmm... switches an knobs/jacks all feel tight.. sounds great.. you can really get alot of sounds out f this thing.. its like, the skys the limit here.. and when combined with other effects.. look out! sonic extasy awaits you my friend... spacey to surfer to u2 to twangin country to pink floyd to whatever you make of your self yo.
Summary: this thing is unique. it makes awesome sounds. somewhat of a learing curve to figure out. makes wide variety of cool echo/reverb/delay sounds, tons of fun blending those sounds together! (works great with heavy distortion if u have it set right) not much of a chorus effect though, go with a Boss or Digitech if u want a good deep chorus with lotsa options.
Summary: I gave this three stars because I have no idea what it sounds like, but I have the Tube Monster and it's great. Apparently, Amazon was having a sale on broken units. The price dropped to $60, plus another 10% off that, so I figured what a deal, why not? Why not, indeed. The unit arrived with parts rattling around inside it. The power came on but no signal (even bypass - didn't) came through or out of it.
Summary: There are a few video reviews of this thing on Youtube [...] and I'd been looking at the VTM for a while, but this is the video that made me decide to buy it. This thing says it has "true hardwire bypass", which makes you believe that it has True Bypass, but I assure that it DOES NOT. This thing stripped my tone pretty heavily, but I wanted to keep it so bad because it's the best thing out there in it's price-range.
Excerpt: This is a very kewl delay! I used a tape delay previously as well as digital delays.I decided that I don't care for the digital sound. This being said, the behringer can achieve a very organic, nearly tape texture. If you adjust the input volume on the delay carefully (this works best using a two amp rig)and use the vibrato feature just enough, a tape emulation can be achieved.
Summary: this pedal is amazing for the price. you can go from jimi hendrix to arctic monkeys to the black keys just by turning a few knobs and switches. its got it all and its really an old school effect and you can really feel the effects as you put them up or down. really recomend this to everyone. its a great, cheap, solid, and powerfull sounding pedal and i am very pleased with it.
Summary: Great low cost alternative to a EHX Memory Man. The delay can be set on either Chorus or Vibrato as an added effect, although those sounds can't be used without the delay. There is only 550ms of delay, so you will most likely need to pair this with another delay with longer times if that's what you are looking for.
