Summary: I've been playing for about 40 years, electric for 7 or 8. And, like for everybody else, the search for tone is eternal. I got this for a gift for Christmas this year and it's fast becoming my favorite distortion pedal.
Summary: I'm going to be playing a pretty big gig in a few weeks so I ordered this pedal. All the reviews are great, and dont get me wrong, It's probably a good pedal but it won't ship to me for like four months!!! Thanks for the piece of crap service Amazon.
Summary: I have been using this pedal in my study, playing a Strat through a little Rogue amp. I like it turned nearly all up with the tone at about half. Great bluesy sound, noisy with tone set high (might be cleaner in a larger environment; everything seems a little noisy in my study with two computers,...
Summary: I've been playing guitar for 25 years and have used a wide array of pedals/effects. Trust me, if you're looking for an inexpensive alternative to an Ibanez Tube Screamer then you've found what you're looking for in the TO800. It delivers the same overdrive tone as a Tube Screamer, and then some.
Summary: Behringer is a problematic company for me. Some of their stuff has been useful far beyond its modest, entry-level pricing (e.g. A-500 Studio Amplifier, UCA-202 DAC, Eurorack UB-502 mini-mixer)...and some of their stuff hasn't served me well at all (e.g. GM-108 amplifier, BTR-2000 rack tuner).
Summary: For the money, this one's a no-brainer. It's a one-trick pony, but that's what it's supposed to be, and it does its trick very well. Sounds better than the Ibanez or Boss models - warmer and less processed-sounding.
Summary: You want that vintage tube overdrive sound without going broke or risking a "boutique" pedal? Then THIS IS the pedal you want. I have played since the 80s, on analog and digital, with the famous "seasick green pedal" and this gives that "famous seasick green pedal" sound for 1/3 the cost.
Summary: times are tough now and I just needed this for my little bedroom rig. I've had all kinds of tube screamers for twenty years and this one is really ok for the money. It doesn't even suck the bass out like some of the more expensive others.
Summary: This is the 3rd pedal I have bought from Behringer and it does not disappoint. There is a handy tone knob to get a variety of sounds and I have ended up using this as my main distortion pedal. Recommended highly and good lord the price is fantastic!!
