MGR/Ryan's review"Behringer Bass V-Amp"

Behringer Bass V-amp
I have played in Jazz, Blues and Rock bands for the past 20 years (with a stint in a brass band before that).
I am currently playing an Epiphone Limited edition Custom SG through a fairly straight Jade amplifier.
Whilst I like distortion as much as the next person, I think the true test of and amp and effects unit is proven in the clean sounds.

I stumbled across the Bass V Amp almost by accident when my brother was given it to use with his keyboard. I tried it once and knew that I needed one. I found several retail prices around for A$180, but with a small amount of investigation I found one for A$140.
I bought this unit because my Digitec GNX2 was just too fiddly and it is so effects driven compared to the V Amp which has a better balance of Effects v's Amps

I love the ease of use. The 25 banks of 125 preset sounds are so usable whilst a simple change of the amps can make an unbelievable difference.
The 32 amp modeling settings offer the best I have experienced. The way you play your guitar directly impacts the output of the amp - This hands so much control back to the guitarist's skill.

This is a VERY LOW NOISE Unit. I have read other reviews where people claim that the V Amp is noisy. There are so many ways with this unit to avoid noise - My advice to anyone who finds this unit noisy would be to check their leads and guitar and amp connections. It will NOT be the V Amp.

I love that a unit can be created for multiple instruments and be so good for all of them.

The LED lights on the dials are so helpful. When you dial between presets you can see how the sound will perform before you even play your first note - No screaming accidents when a quiet entry is needed.

Midi functions and add on foot controllers offer flexibility.

The user guide is a waste of time - If you have any questions, get straight onto Behringer support. They are great!

Having to depress the 'shift button' to dial the 2nd bank of amps means that you can't shift easily in performance. I guess you can always preset it if you know what you want in advance.

I think it is really well made.
I do concede that it is made of plastic but the product is strong and is packaged in the padded gig bag, plus that makes it nice and light. If you are like me, you will appreciate the low weight.
I think the design is really clever, I read another review and do not agree with the claim that it is 'hard to plug in'

What a great unit! It is well made, well package and well thought out.

This unit offers me the ability to do so much. I love the Ultrabass effect. To be able to sound like George Benson with such a beautiful octave effect is great.

There is one problem - This has prevented me from buying a new half stack and a board full of single effects pedals. With 32 true amp sounds and 16 effects offering hundreds of usable combinations at my finger tips I will be saving my money. Great Job Behringer!

MGR/Dan Freeman (Australia)'s review"Behringer Bass V-Amp"

Behringer Bass V-amp
I saw this product in a street press mag for sale as a new product and thought well the price is right $299 AUSTRALIAN dollars (About $100 US) even cheaper after my mate who worked at a music store, gave me a staff discount. (he later got fired for giving staff discounts to mates)


I did some research on the net and all sounded good.....unforetunately when I brought it home it did not sound so good....not as complicated as the V-amp pro was said to be, but not exactly user friendly. It boasts a huge range of player presets from musicians i have never heard and when i used them I wasn't surprised. The effects are so poor quality i found all 125 pretty much useless. there is a terrible 2 second delay when switching effects which makes it pointless for live gigging, the bypass function is very poor quality digital reproduction and there is a lot of white noise/ buzz which makes it not good for recording either.

not bad...but not good either...plastic case
in the shape of a guitar...very corny and obvious trying to hide the simularity to the kidney shaped POD. I was more impressed with the footswitch...metal.

This is a cheap immitation of the LINE 6 POD and belive me that is exactly what it is.. A CHEAP IMMITATION. . My advice, you are better off with a zoom 506 or my old favourite the korg ax1b for that budget. Or save up and buy the BOSS GT 6b ... i just did.

everything has already been said


easy to use


very good, no breath if you have a good jack and a good low
v-amp allowed me to discover new sound and purpose, which I found brought very little rhythm groove, electronic or not.


I recommend it to all curious bass fly to new horizons

Behringer Bass V-amp
Dj nuncio.
I find the number of amp and effects quite important given the price of the machine.


- The configuration gnrale Is it easy?
Trs simple. A button "tap" that provides access to the second parmtres other buttons. A config 'trs Intute.

- The edition of sounds and effects is it easy?
I found that yes, indeed even if it sometimes takes a good turn two buttons but it's not death!

- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
Yes it is even if sometimes we do not fully understand the translation


I find it pretty hard the other opinions on this.
For me, the quality is excellent, although sometimes, sometimes only the sound volume coming out is low.
I use it with my Ibanez GSR-200 (low ;-) ) and PB40 Novanex an amp or headphones.


- How long have you use it? few days

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir? Not

- How do you report qualitprix? Excellent

Does everything said.


Operation is super simple, and red LED are enough class I think ^ ^


It is the only down injured. Even in bypassing the amp simulator (which is not bad for some, but not great either), it can not mount the volume at a certain level dessu CRER without a distortion (unwanted) enough horrible for bass and guitar enthusiasts clean sounds. The auto wah and synth effects are compltement me ugly, and unusable. Besides a, we can make a sound just by fiddling the correct prs rglages The models and amp, but hey, my opinion is pretty useless.


Sound quality mdiocre, the right plan is to provide a carry bag and with a switch, what line 6 pod and not doing. Apart from this advantage, it is impossible to use this product other than as a multi purpose, because branch live sound is really not top. Another ngatif, food, which has a base at SPECIFICATIONS vamp, not compatible with universal transformer. In addition, the preset change induced latency crazy, unbelievable move properly for a clear, therefore, a distortion.

See website for details behringer.
Normally one is supposed to have three types of amp simulation: bass, synth and guitar.


Manuel clear, but on the vamp, complicated to access certain settings (need to press several buttons at once chopper for some effects).


I'm pretty happy with the bass effects. But there are not many that sound great ... on the other hand I'm not convinced by the synth and guitar simultaneously to. Most sound "éttoufés" (well, after it is little less that have not been able to resolve).
I use it mainly to have a nice round bass sound and heavy, kind soul / funk and only in the studio. In this framework I think it sounds pretty good.


Product for designers to budget (just like me;) )
Bass sounds rather nice but does not break bricks.
quality / fair price.
Agréble tools for studio work.

Warning! attentdez do not turn your copy into Fender Jazz bass (as there is that I know of: d)

Behringer Bass V-amp
All adj t say!!


The handover is simple provided that there is a manual cot.
there are lots of DIFFERENT sounds is too long, boring looking!! Beginners go your way !!!!! The manual is clear but the biggest is couraging work you do and your ears!!


No one, and simply ridiculous! There is a high volume and breath sounds are ugly!!


I have two years and I used it once or twice. I've had trouble with! The knobs (knobs) no longer worked so I bring my pedals at the store that I rpar APRS month and a half!! I only ever served to me so I DCID Sparer and again it shit. The buyer has reu and there is a problem of memory so it returns to me and I refer the chque!! Total shopping, I end up with a crappy pedals and I can not even Sparer me!!

In conclusion it's really not a buy pedals! I am not against Behringer (I have an amp head and cabinet BX4500H BA410 and I'm a little content) ... but the is not a good product!

mgoussu's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Behringer Bass V-amp
For specifications see previous opinions.
I use it mainly for three things:
The mini-loop sampler that I turn with the FCB1010 is very useful to work on riffs.
- 2 or 3 guitar sounds "rock", based on the simulation of the AC30
Nickname preamp-general when I make models
As mentioned above, it is a nice little Swiss Army knife.


THE confifguration, if it is not clear, e st about right. The problem is that the bike does not allow all the settings without connecting to the computer. The free software comes with enough pourrave, but you get done.


For the price (I insist) the amp simulations can find one or two sounds quite used to the guitars. I have been able aps try it with a bass. The flanger, phaser are not terrible, but I have not spent hours to solve them. The chorus is ok, and the effect can synth fun stuff for bass (or guitar strings). The atmosphere is an effect reverb short, very useful for improving the sound of an acoustic or voice. The delay can have fun.
Basically it allows me to save my models. Even if the sounds are not top, I get less trouble with BCP sound about as good as with my very good amp, good mic, but rotten and sound space capabilities tech sound void. For models only, then.


I use it very often for six months. It's a practice baby, and the sampler is perfect for working on riffs looped.
This is probably why I prefer the sound with AC30 type amp. Once a well configured, the animal meets the sound of the guitar. That is to say that changing the microphone sound is changed, it was hardly the case in the pod.
What I like least: a lot of sounds a little unnecessary.
I tried bcp other models. The pod did not suit me, too type, and no respect for the guitar. For the value, I could have taken a VAMP2 if I did not want the function sampler.
For more expensive and more cumbersome, I would have the Vox ToneLab hearts are. But actually really good for sound, I have a very good amp (see profile).

See previous opinions


Using relatively simple despite the multifunction knobs that can be misleading if not supported on this or that button before turning this one or that the (I lost me already), not so simple as that then ..... But you get used to it.
Manuel moderately clear, little or nothing depending on the sampler and nothing about the effect synth (expander)


Effects effective, used to the keyboard (jupiter 4 and korg 01/Wfd)


9 months of use, it is unfortunate that for the keyboard there is not stereo input, the machine contrary to what is said above is not for the keyboard, there are 4 or 5 amp models and a mono input .... it is a bit steep for an additional 10 euro extra input jack would have been the bienvenue.Je me is essentially to put effects on my Jupiter 4, loss of memory is one .... no worries groooos managed to solve.
mmmm I do it again this election if I was a bass player, in any case, for keyboard, go your way this little box is not steaming as she suggests.
