    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......

    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.

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. Pushing rglages (high level of bass, high level of overdrive and high levels of shuffled his saturson clear), we get a large enough distortion, and ultra infrabass MUSCL es. 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.

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 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.
