    If you want to buy the Sans Amp, try this and save money!!!

    Behringer V-Tone Bass BDI21Published on 02/02/15 at 06:48
    First of all keep in mind that this behringer unit of the SansAmp unit is not a overdrive pedal concept. It is a tube emulator so those guys that are trying to bash the pedal because "the drive knob doesn't work well", didn't read or understand the concept of a bass driver pedal (tech 21 or Behringer BDI21). I play bass three times per week. Play in a local church but play for a rock band too. I play bass since 2000 and have several basses and other stuff. From 2003, the Tech 21 SansAmp bass driver was my main trick to my sound. For whatever reason, I decided to sold it to try something different but every stuff I tried doesn't give me that warm like Geddy Lee sound that I loved. I see this…

    First of all keep in mind that this behringer unit of the SansAmp unit is not a overdrive pedal concept. It is a tube emulator so those guys that are trying to bash the pedal because "the drive knob doesn't work well", didn't read or understand the concept of a bass driver pedal (tech 21 or Behringer BDI21). I play bass three times per week. Play in a local church but play for a rock band too. I play bass since 2000 and have several basses and other stuff. From 2003, the Tech 21 SansAmp bass driver was my main trick to my sound. For whatever reason, I decided to sold it to try something different but every stuff I tried doesn't give me that warm like Geddy Lee sound that I loved. I see this Behringer in a local store and immediately noted that is a copy of my loved Sans Amp bass driver so, for $30 I decide to take the risk. What a surprise. It is almost identically. I my opinion sounds a little bit better because has a little more midrange so I find it that it add less color to my sound than the Sans Amp so it's a little bit easier to find a clean sound. Yes, it is plastic, but I take care of my stuff so this is not a problem. This unit or the Tech 21 are excellent for passive basses. I can't play my jazz bass without this thing. It simply add punch to my bass and that warm sound that I really love to play rock. The other difference that I find with this and the Sans Amp is that the Sans Amp has a little more output than this but I just add more volume and bingo. The bass driver pedals add a little color to your sound so even when it has a "clean sound setting" it's a little hard to find a super clean sound so If you love a super clean sound, maybe this or the sansamp are not the pedal for you. Remember that this is a tube emulator. If you love a little warm sound (especially to play rock) you will love this unit.

Overdrive particulirement zero, which is sorely lacking in efficiency has not really saturates rather it looks crappy parasite rotting us the sound, and more on my own sound becomes increasingly lame as and has as the battery is empty ... 0/10 Acute equalizer and low efficiency of a limit, but hey, if it is used not ^^ (I prefer that my amp). 2/10 A level not great, the prampli does its job and the level increases, but toujourstrspeu. 2/10 A knob of presence, meaning bring roundness to our sound. Rat 0/10 of a blend knob, which should be used to mix the original sound and the retouch, a can still be used. 5/10 A ground lift which has half walk. 3/10 - What technology is used? (Analog, digital, tube ...) Analog - Are they ditables? Via a publisher Mac / PC? Not of course !! - What is the connection? (Audio / MIDI) Audio. the plug is gold plated male XLR (or it's fake) and has an output jack and asymmetrical between jack. The battery does not work unless the jack is plugged in 7/10 In. - Is this a rack or rack model? No, it's a pedal is placed on the floor. <span style="text-decoration: underline;">Miscellaneous</span> This pedal works with a 9v battery that discharges by 3 hours' -_-, the phantom can not be used and not supplied power must have a polarity REVERSE story that buys the Behringer PSU. 0/10 There is obviously a true bypass, which cuts EVERYTHING, even the Pramp (dgringoladedu level ensures!) To do any editing to the sound of the bass 3/10. An LED indicates whether the pedal is operating. The case has the look of a painted piece of plastic money and this is the case. In the end I would extraordinarily gnreuse note of 2/10 because the Pramp pramplifie (and again).

    USE

    - Is Gnrale setup simple? Simply no! you turn the button and nothing (except level), it is very easy! 2/10 - The edition of sounds and effects is it easy? Idem. - The manual is clear and sufficient ... There is a proposal rglages but share nothing is explained Go 3/10, 2/10 for presets?.

    SOUND QUALITY

    - Are the effects effective and sufficiently ADAPTS GPs? - Which instruments do you use? - What are those you prfrez, you dtestez? Everything t said. I play on a G & L L2000 Tirbute and Jack & Danny passive jazz bass.

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    - How long have you use it? a year. - What is the particular feature you like best and least? Least see remains of the opinion The more see anywhere ... - Have you tried many other models before acqurir? This is my first. Certainly not my last, or monfidlecompagnon! - How do you report qualitprix? Zero quality / price riquiqui (actually it is quandmmehors price ^^). ame is not worth the money! - With the exprience, you do again this choice? ... No?. Behringer has done good things, but not. 1/10, because the Pramp pramplifie ... despite the interference. More I try to find some more chosed'intressantet I find nazes stuff ... I'm having trouble with the sale such notice ^^

    OVERALL OPINION

    I do not possde, but I lay essay 5 minutes at Bass center Pigalle. This nest not a complete test, but just my impressions Premire.

    was not sound bad at all this little trick 45 euros, one can obtain a large variety of sound and distortion really well (much better quavec a boss almost two times more)
    As the SansAmp more quune simulator dampli trs Fidler, the pedals his own personality.
    APRS dessaie 5 minutes, a jai trs good impression. But I think I prfre the sound of SansAmp. But that is dt that gots my personal and not the quality of both products.
    In any case, the report hat Behringer qualitprix

    SOUND QUALITY

    Ampeg tube convincing simulation, a low intake of non ngligeable, a very close drive rponse of the tube: I play soft = clear sound, I support more I crunch over!. A little cooler than the lamp 49 but hughes tubeman!! store
    With the drive back I have more distortion AIM (I love the bass!) But to have two levels of scne drive it allows me to get sound from my amp (peavey T-max pramp lamp) + a preamp ampeg style. And then to give some depth your little amp, I find it great!
    For sound distortion I'll buy the GDI21 and I get back to you!

    OVERALL OPINION

    With a price of 49 I say more
    is guaranteed 1 year, carafe if it falls, we'll give you another one (it does not rpar SAV) then the worst 49 per year, see
    I easily dpense more per year for his killing is not death, and then if your not thugs and you pay attention to the transformer you use, there is reason APAS DCED that the pedals!

    This is a box of live active, combines a low prampli (transistors) that can change the tonal and simulate the saturation of an amplifier lamps.

But say it excels prampli sound grazing (removal of high frquences trs, boost the infrabass, partial sticking of attack ...) and for low saturation medium, its crunchy.

    UTILIZATION

    The Casing has no switch, and plugging dclenche (very bottom) a jack. We do not tmoin Power, it only remains that we are well vrifier food by pressing pedals dclencher for a red light showing that exploits effects. The ground lift is efficient (it allows to avoid some snoring).

    The optimum rglages vary the bass uses. But as the knobs are not gradus must rely ears to find his sound that simply can not mmoriser (it is not allowed to make his personal mark ...).
    It is a pity that we can not use phantom power from the mixer to operate the DI-pramp. The 9V battery compartment for TRS is lousy, but it eats too much battery ... Aficionados of all pedals have a fawn 9V transformer. It is convenient to have two outputs (one symtrique, an XLR) simultanment used.
    The name of the potentiomtres rglage is quite explicit, and the manual is not used much. It could give some advice on the most used rglages.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The optimum rglages vary the bass uses (indpendamment gots of each and the desired effect. Test on a Fender PB 57, we obtain a trs aisment his typically rock classic. With a Yamaha RBX374, we also get good feedback, but in a narrower range of rglages. It is clear that the simulation of a bass amp lamp gnrique is correct, the recording the bass is very easy, and that's what it sold the boti.
    Under the conditions of normal use, this does not introduce Casing at all of breath using the prampli (normal gain, treble reasonable ...). The DI is transparent (comparison made on the same amp, with one between direct and Hi-Z XLR symtrisation APRS)
    I test this pramp on bass, among others, but frankly rsultats obtained are no intrt. I do not even talk to other instruments.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for two months. I do not compare this to the SansAmp bass pedals MXR M80 Bass DI and DI who do not in the same CATEGORY price because of all fawns is a low branch e on a real bass amp to be compared. An amp emulator remains a succdan sr but its really draws a INTERESTED, at least with some bass.
    Résumé in a small very nice pedals that quickly lugging around his big bass amp while achieving a good sound without breaking the bank. A prsentation a little cheap, but not too bad when even get excited too quickly, but it has much to rev the little money we invested, there is no u!

    The Drive allows for its low cruncher and significantly alters the sound.
    The sound can be very cold (transistor) or very warm sound with Blend.
    I do not know if we get a sound "Ampeg", but in any case, it sounds pretty good!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for over a year.

    It's simple, I love this amp that I recently discovered playing live (before I use it in recording).
    The sound is pretty good, build quality and good price concrete.

    An excellent choice to excellent value for money. Besides, I do not think the SansAmp do better ...

    I use it with a Beatles bass baltimore.

    I do not use too much of the drive but, well, I guess it does its job without too much saturated either.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 3 months and rpond perfectly my needs (that is - say an amp simulator for cheap (36euros at Toto)).

    Behringer has really good products trs (trs and bad ... but it's also far from being the case here).

    I would do without this choice because the BDI hsiter enough for me.

    - To have a basic EQ (blend 0, EQ and level at noon to choose)

    SOUND QUALITY

    Too quickly tested for now, but:

    with the blend at 0 or off, the pedal is transparent.

    the blend brings the right amount of "dirt" to an amp too clean (I do).

    I have not tested the drive much, but overall it seems a pretty used to add crunch discrete (drive at 9 am), but not really to the saturation. Notice to review the use ...

    EDIT: little test recording: the BDI direct the sound card (m-audio D44), no editing to do and the sound is really nice, and this net.
    Briefly, it works well for that for which the box is made

    OVERALL OPINION

    Again behringer out a product that is respectable and useable, with a ratio Q / P very good!

    AF tests show that the quality is below the original SansAmp, but if the goal is to make music, not comparative, and the BDI is doing well alone.

    Be careful if you use a 9v adapter:
    The polarity of the pedal is unlike standard adapters!! + = - And - = +
    (No it's not math, but it's risky if you do not pay attention!)

    UTILIZATION

    The general configuration is it simple?
    Yes.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The effects are they effective, responsive and realistic enough?

    So there I was amazed, despite the bad reputation of the brand, this little pedal really impressed me. You put the blend thoroughly, you set the EQ and presto you have your SVT 300 to 150 kg that fits in your pocket. I exaggerate a little but really, really not that much. Connected to a table, by inflating a bit serious, is amazing!

    Be careful if you use a 9v adapter:
    The polarity of the pedal is unlike standard adapters!! + = - And - = +
    (No it's not math, but it's risky if you do not pay attention!)

    UTILIZATION

    The general configuration is it simple?
    Yes.

    OVERALL OPINION

    How would you rate the quality / price?
    Unbeatable!

    Have you tried many other models before buying it?
    Yes: a result almost identical, but huge difference in price!

    With experience, you do again this choice? ...
    Despite the fragile aspect of the switch (that nothing prevents to change!), So no problem!

    Behringer V-Tone Bass BDI21Published on 05/31/09 at 15:19
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    I think the pedals over a power amp would make a bass amp, well no but then not at all.
    THE FIRST first held a month or two and then not turn that half or not then, or not at once or just a moment. Back guarantee, deuxime APRS takes another year, but down at least we could delude potential level sound ...

    It's not great to use in that nothing is intelligible, a stammer and mumble under his breath, though it does.
    Nothing is good or the drive or the equalizer or compressor or or or.
    The output XLR sounds a little better but not yet strong either.

    Who persists it is simple to use, but a small low table in the active right mix will sound a hundred times better, as simple.

    SOUND QUALITY

    It is not good, I think even that has prevents progress. I have the acoustic version of the pedals, the brunette ADI21, which does a better job with the bass actually. As' do, make as much a.

    But beware, a Hartke format costs only 99roros pedals and works far better.
    I have one for ages mycrobass Nobels (33roros) which is much more jovial and raliste the BDI.
    Trsrcemment a vt Tech21 bass and three solar system is further ... the price too.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Do not buy this BDI21 is carrment bad. Reduces a budget there are better without a low DCON active (or passive via di-box) right in the sound is well above.
    The pedals Hartke is the best alternative prize, You Save even hair has worth, that one does BDI21 dsillusions and bitterness I know something.
    In addition, unreliable (and also applies to her sister's blue gdi typical bbert unfortunately).
    A two euro is still too expensive given the mdiocrit product.

    Behringer V-Tone Bass BDI21Published on 10/20/09 at 03:31
    It's analog. The difference is important compared to digital modelers (see below). Editing is made with markers on paper (not bad with 3B). 100% bug-free. Drive, treble, bass, presence, blend (direct sound and pedal mix), volume. Battery or PSU operation. Battery operation is disastrous, you'd better go with a PSU (a sturdy one).

    USE

    Before kindergarten there's the BD121.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Okay, there's the matter of the power supply. Don't expect a decent sound with a 9V battery. The amperage is too low, sound has no dynamics and it's lifeless. You need to use 9 V 0.5 A minimum or even more. And then it transforms and it delivers bass and treble, and even mids, with a…

    SOUND QUALITY

    Okay, there's the matter of the power supply. Don't expect a decent sound with a 9V battery. The amperage is too low, sound has no dynamics and it's lifeless. You need to use 9 V 0.5 A minimum or even more. And then it transforms and it delivers bass and treble, and even mids, with a very good output level. It sounds very big with the blend all the way up, with fat lows that need to be tamed and excellent dynamics, even too dynamic. Even my 8040s have a hard time with it. I tested it with an Epiphone Viola, passive bass with two humbuckers, a Studiomaster P7 console and a TwinQ. It's useful to connect it to a ballsy setup that can take anything. The drive is really nice, the Viola makes it sing, even at full blast. The difference with digital modelers is that the dynamic response and timbre of an instrument are well-respected. There's no comparison. With a tube compressor inserted (Fatman), I don't need anything else. The sound is solid as an egg, punchy, powerful, rich in harmonics.

    OVERALL OPINION

    If you made a blind test with more prestigious models, I think more than one would be surprised. On the other hand, the V-amp modeling from the same manufacturer has no soul, no life, no musicality.
    The cons:
    - Unusable with a 9V battery
    - You need to connect it to a ballsy setup that can handle it and doesn't alter what comes out (console, preamp...), disappointing with a Berhinger console.
    - Awful look,
    - Behringer is behind it - We'll see how it turns out in terms of reliability...
    - Obscene price

    The pros:

    - Fat sound if used with a high amperage PSU
    - Nice drive
    - Definitive and maybe even pro takes are possible
    - The sound adapts well to any effects, especially dynamics processors
    Edit from April 8, 2010

    I decided to order the Sans amp VT bass.
    Here are my impressions, compared to the BD 121:

    - With clean sounds, the VT bass has a wider sound, fuller, it's more precise, too, but there's not a big difference compared to the Behringer. The VT bass has more gain and a better signal-to-noise ratio, too.
    - It surprised me most when increasing the drive. To my ears, the BD121 takes the lead with a more reedy, more musical crunch and overdrive, and it handles harmonics better. The VT bass remains rough with the "character" control, which emphasizes the mids and high mids with a striking overall tone.
    With distortion, the VT bass has a more modern sound, even if you can reduce that coloring with the controls. The Behringer is more vintage.
    Bottom line:
    For clean sounds, jazz, blues, rock, the VT bass is the way to go.
    For crunch/overdrive, I choose the BD121

    Excellent value for money

    Tube amp simulator with DI output.
    I give it a 10 because it allows me to program sounds (like the VT Bass Deluxe). Given the price, I'm going too far, I know!!!

    USE

    It's really easy to dial in, to be honest:
    - A presence control ("brilliance," an enhancer)
    - A drive control to dirty up the sound
    - A bass control
    - A treble control
    - A level (volume) control
    - A blend control (tube simulation rate)

    The manual provides well thought-out presets.

    I give it 8 because it doesn't have any mids controls, like the Sansamp Bass Driver it's a copy of.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The AF samples are excellent to get an idea.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The AF samples are excellent to get an idea.
    I love its sound quality, it adds warmth to the sound and you can find whatever you want. I used it for reggae and slap and it's awesome.
    No noise and many, many possibilities.
    I got rid of it because I got a tube preamp but I sometimes miss this small magic box if only because of the ease with which I could get a killer slap sound.
    I must say that I didn't compare it to the Sansamp but my opinion on certain Behringer pedals (the most recent ones) is that they are (almost) as good as the originals at a ludicrous price. The BOD400, apart from a slight difference in gain, is almost the same as the ODB-3 and the TO800 sounds like an Ibanez TS808 (although I must admit that I didn't compare these last two with the same instrument).
    The only thing you can criticize it for is a lousy switch. But the BDI21 isn't conceived like the others and doesn't have a shitty switch (even if it wouldn't dare jump on it too vigorously!!!). The buttons are a bit loose, but nothing to worry about.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Test passed, considering the price.
    If this pedal was sold for 100 bucks by a more renown brand, I'm sure many (including me!) would fall into the trap.
    If you have an average amp, go for it.
