excalibur49's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" When you know the rule c is the top at this price"

polisson's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" 8 reviews?"
Note that the effectiveness and usefulness of these features are questionable. The possibilities are interesting connections ... but what good if the sound coming out of the amp is not satisfactory?
Control settings requires that you get used to slightly different commands. Otherwise, you can not hear the nuances that we try to make the sound of the amp, as was the case when I tried it. Except that there really has not?
The volume control is very sensitive and you get almost no shade at a high level. Fortunately for the neighbors, there is a headphone output.
There is no need to have years of experience in the field of low to very quickly realize that the sound quality is up to the purchase price: not very high.
Only the effect "Ultrabass" provides more in sound.
Why so many conflicting opinions on this amp?
Technically, for the price (+ / -250 €), we will not do very much, we have a 2 year warranty amp (Behringer does not fix it, it makes a new one), which provides enough power for group play.
But soon, the quality of its push to the musician to move on.
So only buy if you can not do otherwise. Know that it may actually be worth investing in a quality amp, even displaying less power.
For example, I strongly recommend a Fender Rumble 150 (or 150 watts) at 370 €, which already offers sufficient power for group play at a reasonable volume. How about these

Zerothe(bass)hero's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" absolutely!"
The connection is plthorique: between RCA CD, DI, headphone ... Everything is there.
The rglages are complete: bass, treble + equalo dbrayable 7 bands.
2 channels. The 2nd is planned for the distortion, with a function "shape" (dig the mids)
Octave + distortion effect, a compressor (quite good), one for the octave pedal and change the channel.
A BMOL: the ads are far 300W. I say 150 ...
The config is not the easiest for bassists who are not accustomed to juggle between channels. But damn, what fraction of the population uses a bass distortion? (Also rotten)
Thanks to the equalo, we can shape the sound. S say you get a good sound, there is a world.
A constant, regardless of the sound you are using: the whole is always messy, poorly Dfine without attack despite the cone frame.
A record for the sound of ultrabass (octave) and the disto that are simply unnecessary and gadgets without intrt because of very fool quality.
The best sound is obtained in a Rock / Reggae accentuating the bass. Nevertheless have, increases and decreases in volume involved volume impromptu "concert", which tells me we are far from 300W ad.
The use of equalo seems to pril survival of HP ...
As slapper, forget. Only the compressor is thanks to the pure sounds badly Defines.
Used with a low craft fitted with Seymour Dunacan.
Is used as an amp amp flat, low volume. Once he pushed a little sweat, it galleys, it is agony.
I notice some m'tais rank down here for acqurir, I Never!
Mine is from 2001 (plate) and he died. APRS 2 onreuses Repair Tool, the rparateur told me I'd better sparer me because 8 years for him Behringer parat be a canonical age.
Moreover, these bugs are very difficult rparables. When I think that local RPTE I use, there is a 20-year-Fender is three hours every day ...
Avoid cz thing, except use "home". To avoid
Poire-Abricot's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Setup could not be more simple, it could not be more flexible (saturated channel is very nice and much bigger sound)
I play a Cort Artisan C5 force (the amp has no cash but perfectly between specifiers)
Get with the clean channel sound good round, not at all aggressive, pleasant, quick! Class! (Llectronique remains active even when very effective)
Saturated with channel sound is big, bold, in gnial mdiator!
With good slap rglages beautifully natural spring thanks to the aluminum cne is enjoyable.
I play reggae, funk and big mtal whirring and it's up!
That was 1 month that I have, I quickly find myself rglages correspondent.
I spend a Line 6 Studio 100 has this monster ... Why not have bought the DS beginners?
This amp is a bte, a monster of a bassist's arsenal: the receiver sends massive wholesale and wholesale-watt ultra low!
Good only BMOL:
-Weight: 30kg. I walk a lot and it's heavy ... Well you all tell me it's less than a 4x10 cabinet "but it certainly thomman 220 on ...
-Power: the amp is very (too) powerful. The 180W does have beneficial for the home, but for the stage, even no need to transplant in small rooms! This buffalo spits death! LCol same music takes me to concerts!
An amp for bassists sick sick

djoulow's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
the reproach that I just do it, is the lack of an entry for low active and passive, in fact, a single entry available and when I plug in an active low point I found myself in a 0.2 gain to avoid saturate, it's pretty weird.
for the rest see the previous review.
usage is pretty simple on this amp, we have a normal channel and a distortion channel adjustable (not very effective and I do not know many good bass player that uses distortion on a bass but hey go ...) the whole switchable via footswitch.
Adjustable compressor quite effective, adjustable Octaver works not too bad (for behringer is a sub harmonic but in fact there is no more unless Octaver.
to sculpt the sound we have a 7-band EQ with a choice of frequencies rather poor choice ... or not very faithful to reality. to get the desired sound made in ba ... should not be trying too hard to find the sound you want because we have an amp that is not in precision, yes ba must not expect the quality of a MARKBASS or SWR for 300euros ...
anyway for 300euros it fulfills its role, with several live musicians I hear me well and I sound about right for an amp of personal return.
Another negative point: it is VERY heavy and inconvenient to carry.
the sound and well it should not be super strict with him.
I have a musicman stingray 5 string and a JazzBass U.S. Deluxe 4 string, I'm almost reluctant to acknowledge the grain of his bass, it lacks precision in the entire sound spectrum, the 15-inch breath a little despite the absence a tweeter but not really embarrassing when you play with other musicians (no longer heard the noise).
saturates the 15-inch fast enough for serious when pushed a bit.
is an amp that will delight small budgets, it is pretty well filled job, receivers cheap, powerful enough to do live, not too big but heavy, the sound is correct in all (I saw the price into perspective) .
I bought only by lack of budget, but it is obvious that if I had more money to spend in a bass amp, it's not what I would buy, but rather a combo MARKBASS type CMD 15, which is much more powerful, much lighter, delivers a light-years from Behringer but also much more expensive
my experience in the bass amp for nearly 15 years makes me think that I am very objective in my opinion, you see.
I recommend it only to those who can not invest more money

Anonymous 's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
- Connectors almost complte the back of the amp: DI, making CDs, footswitch, effects loop. It lacks the possibility of adding a baffle deuxime. Too bad.
- 2 channels, one of which is saturated with the sounds ddi (gain + shape + level). quilibrage both channels thanks to the knob "level". Practice.
- Effect "octave". (ULTRABASS at Behr)
- 7-band equalizer.
Config a bit complex for 3 neurons as a bass player I who used an old Fender with three simple knobs and a canal.
That said, the sound is satisfactory, and all sounds are possible thanks to two channels, the equalizer graph.
Perfect for styles zik ncessitant a good 15-inch 300-watt grow. You get the picture ...
My bass has 2 humbuckers, trs is good in the bass, everything. Rock-Reggae-Roots.
Outside has this amp, for the many rglages before it will delight fans of percussive techniques and shrediques. If so, a few bassists INTERESTED ...
The compressor is very well, and adjustable sensitivity.
The channel is saturated in the adobe. What a bass player uses, from Lemmy (respect!) And its clones. Unnecessary. Prfrez a Big Muff.
The ULTRABASS is a gadget (octave). That said, the amp cash without flinching the octave, which is not the case with all amps.
Personally, I only use the compressor, which is perfect.
As for the 300 watts, they are l.
While the mea culpa!
made some time I dnigre Behringer amps (while using some pedals brand) without further notice on the issue that the views of snobs who only play on Eden or SWR ...
And then I cracked BXL 3000A I bought this because I was tired of trans my Fender 70 kg on the stairs (oh RPTES the attic) and the sc microscopic ties. That is half the weight and size. Well, worked!
This amp has 7 years he has never seen rparateur no grsille knob does, everything works perfectly, the sound is standard and complies with its own bass as you enter it. He bowed in return, has a grip, I told her pos wheels is nickel.
I think some useless gadgets (channel saturated octave), and absence of a cabinet decision Supp. But if we make the choice of compactness (in my case), it's perfect. Frankly, its the diffrence is minimal with my Fender. Great little amp RPET and caf-concert. 300 W even when. Drisoire price under performance new or used ...
A good plan for bassists who privilgient dsargents or showing off the effectiveness of logos that we pay a fortune, believe in an old brand dtracteur Sino-German ( gemano-Chinese?)
Promised, if I galres with this stuff, j'dite ...

cajunthierry's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
output jack and XLR line out, effects loop
2 channels: one clear, one disto
PDAL one can switch from one channel to another, and to initiate the ULTRABASS
The 7-band equalizer allows you to sculpt the sound quite easily.
The manual is clear
I play Celtic music, was suitable for himself and deep enough.
That said, the HP aluminum cash out the slap ...
I play with a low STAGG BFL 300 (fretless) (read my review for this bass)
I just put the strings D'Addario chrome mesh dish ... it is with this amp.
The Stagg 300 as an instrument "entry level" (however correct for a price trs infrieur 200), I guess pretty well what this toy can send with a low medium or high range!
Before I was playing on a AMPEG B2: when looking for the trs hot soup on BXL is less comfortable, but trs on: lowering the bridge pickup volume and adjusting the curve of EQ, even in reggae is done!
no complaints to make, so the sound!
I've had four months.
What I like most: Reserved power (even with just one drummer ct nerv has held the pond!) The relatively Reduces the Faculty to lay flat or inclined as a return of scne.
Cons: ONLY one fist on top. Weight (27 kg) combined with the volume and shape a bit specially: I recommend to eat before the wrestle down stairs.
One regret: the footswitch for channel change and / or octave ultrabass tmoins is not equipped with lights that are on the faade. When in doubt, NCESS to turn their backs to the public to see if the distortion or ultrabass in office.
Incidentally, the ULTRABASS, I compare a one octave, with the default inhrents; dcrochage signal NCESS a strong attack on pain of flanchage.
Warning: when the bb is the rototo, attention eardrums. During the last concert, I had put in a position inclined to get along. Rsultat: Nause of beginners. it sends really strong through the membrane of the ALU HP, so do not stay in front of the mouth of the dragon! has reminded me of the 70s, when we returned five hours in the morning 'with ears that vibrated more ...
Tip: During the scales in empty rooms long reverb time, I put my bag and my jacket derrire the amp, to absorb some of the trs low frequencies sent by the 3 winds Rear ... otherwise, Reduces Power even has stuck pretty ... Ditto for those who want a "cabaret" ...
I recommend digging on the EQ, the band of 63 Hrz, for security for the ears.
Quality-price ratio: trs good amp for a "road" (master 1.5, 5 max gain, I can see myself playing in a bossa club. Master 7, as vrifier the organizer is ensured "broken windows" ... Master background: Nan-nan-nan!
Exprience with it the price there's no picture: I would do this choice.

Hankey's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
- 300 Watts 4ohms
- HP 15 "BUGERA (TM) with aluminum cone!
- 608 x 466 x 418 mm and 27.45 kgs
- 2 channels
- Functions and distortion ultrabass
- Systm FBQ
- Musical limiter
So to start, there are plenty of I / O jack ^ ^:
- At the front: an input (hopefully: p) - 1 headphone
- At the rear: line out 1 - 2 fx insert (1 send, 1 return) - a football sw
- Still has the rear, but not jack: 1 DI out and a CD in LR
There's also a lot of knobs:
- One for rgler the volume of the channel 1 (ie the channel "all bte")
- Three channel 2, which is the saturated channel: volume between the effect of intensity, volume "when the effect is appliququot; (because yes, the volume increases when the high effect is activated)
- One for the compressor
- One for the ULTRABASS
- A Master volume (yes, finally ^ ^) for rgler the output volume of the bte
In the middle of the front, the equalizer with FBQ 7 faders.
APRS test, the knobs are, I think, very prcis, and we get easily the sound we want. The faders are also prcis, but it's not even millimtre PRS against ... There is a small "click" to block them in a central position, not bad. There is a way to leave them on (small solid red Lumire on each) or choose to let light in terms of what we play. L on the other hand, you have to play for them FORT ragissent and light ...
The two main effects (distortion and ultrabass) can be activated by pushing the corresponding buttons, which when activated s'clairent, but also thanks to a two switch pedals supplied with the amp, it's really nice. They plug into the FOOT SW jack the rear.
There are the Insert FX that are practical enough to add a multi-purpose or even without a tuner mute out.
The manual is short (for each language eh, because while it is still same pais ... ^ ^) and could not be more clear.
A real problem arises in cons: There is only one fist on top, and it's really hard move ... (That's why I put 8)
I find the sound really good, knowing that I spend an Ashdown Behringer 300W 30W ah a ...
The sound "neutral" sounds really good, serious as acute, then there's the same when cne alu ...
The channel "saturquot; gives really good too, even if AC is not worth an effect pedals SPECIFICATIONS (but it seems pretty empty)
The ULTRABASS is nice, ca REALLY gives the octave and more ...
Power is terrible! I had to push back Ashdown (10) to cover a battery. Now, even in the rpt, the master of 2 - 2.5 is more than enough to cover the battery.
Good to know: I play mainly Mtal / Rock on a Cort C5Z (=> 5 strings)
I use it for about one month, we'll see over time ...
330 pay for a product from a reseller (so probably a lot cheaper on the net), I think it's really a great deal!
J'espre he's not going to sitt lcher me ^ ^
Obviously, I would do this choice, but hey, we'll see in a year or two ...
(I'm not 10, because I do not think that something is declare it perfect ^ ^)

Fb02's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Everything is also said in the notice Previous
In fact I put a notice in order to discuss the overall opinion, but I agree with almost everything said in the opinion ets Previous.
I use it for about a year
I particulirement .... all ..... is small, has returned in the trunk of a car and do nothing deoit, nor its quality or strength.
I was looking for a small amp that is nearest possible to a wholesale power and quality! I went on a crusade, I almost tried everything according to my specifications (small, powerful and qualitj'avais time j'tais not press and tried many brands by typing in up, starting with AMPEG, but as I dj the big stuff, I would not put too much money in this amp destiny to "small" scnes. Then I softphone knowledge of the brand BEHRINGER dealer heartedly. It the silent aluminum cone, still packed nine, I tried and convinced by the quality I pushed to see the volume .... . I left with him and pay less than 350 euros. Many "collgue" laughed at me when I told them that I bought from! Today they laugh less when they see they NWPD 3 6 times more than me in the leading brands for the same and sometimes less. That would be crazy to dpenser more! I plan to sell even my "heavy cavalry" because I no longer use him. For and against as in the opinion Previous, there is a point ngatif: weight and grip that is unqiue trs wrong place and no comfortable grip, but hey, we forgive him this default with respect to its quality. I would do without this choice hsiter and even if I had to repurchase the same to him come to grief because I sought a lot! As always I advise not to rely on brands that sit on their Notore but to go try. Before leaving I have try with prcise diffrent low trs, the only thing is that I am concert on 1.5 volume knob while in passive and it needs to be 2.5 times too strong

Flo Jobb's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Hp 15-inch aluminum-cone (which makes a big difference from the "simple" BXL3000 (without A))
-2 Channels a "normal", the other distortion or just a little more boost, with a function "shape" for "awesome sound."
7-band graphic equalizer-, FBQ Spectrum Analyzer (we will see below), a master, a gain for each channel (the one on channel 2 is used for the intensity of the distortion, there's a level for that channel knob ), a compressor, a ultrabass (low octave)
Two-output direct (one in the other XLR jack)
An entry-cd etc ... little use given the presence of the amp in the bass (it's a bass amp at the same time ^ ^)
An insert-effect (in / out)
A significant and ever-pedal switch for channel and ultrabass. might have been expected to be able to switch the compressor, but hey let's not quibble either.
Nickel is an amp at the same time so there's no way to turn a 36 knob. The graphic equalizer is super convenient to have the sound you want.
The FBQ Spectrum Analyzer is fun but not very useful: When the triggers, the frequencies of the equalizer shine more or less intensely, making it possible to adjust them.
It said its own when you want it totally useless. This allows just beginning to understand graphic equalizer slowly (yes it's been a lot of buttons at once ^ ^)
Ben strength, with 300 watts, not expect an amp room ^ ^
The Master set to "1", the walls tremble already ^ ^ so no worries for concert rehearsals and cafes, even a drummer quite violent.
It's not good after all, it's quite normal that the sound is a powerful 300 watts, yet it must follow that the quality!
Well for now I have absolutely not been disappointed, a huge presence in the bass and treble in the aluminum cone. I tested in stores BXL3000 and I remained very skeptical because it sounded horrible and lacked slap in Treble, with its very deaf. The BXL3000 A is totally different, the HP really changes everything.
By digging a little EQUAL mediums and activating the compressor, we take it easy for marcus miller or flea ^ ^
From there, and given the flexibility of the equalizer, all sounds are possible, jazz, funk, to heavy rock or otherwise with a large presence in the midrange, this amp can do absolutely everything.
Personally I play a little bit of everything (funk, rock, metal, pop, jazz) and I've always been able to find the sound I needed, I usually dig the mediums with a large presence in the low and the acute, activating the compressor if necessary.
Another good point is that it does not alter the sound of the bass, I tested several basses over and each time the difference is obvious.
In terms of effects, ultrabass is nice, the amp is specially designed to have an excellent record in the low (see serious ^ ^) notes an octave below do not interfere with absolutely no HP, which is quite rare to be emphasized. This is original enough to slap the game, it adds a lot of presence.
The distortion (or channel 2) is still light enough to it, I find it unfortunate that we can not push a little further, she lacks a bit of fishing. To be used from time to time, but you will not sound like a muse hysteria.
Needless to say, with 300 watts, it is widely be repeated without pushing the amp into a corner. I have tested for the moment that position until the middle volume, and it still not saturated. My ears are not ready to go further for now ^ ^
It is now a month since I have this amp, I have not tested in concert but it is repeated more than enough, once again its presence in the bass is simply staggering, and the aluminum cone goes back quite a bit treble.
I was torn between this amp and a fender rumble 100, and I must say that I am not disappointed, for the same price (or less) there's no photo.
I paid 290 at the site of a German dealer (about 350 in store), and is an excellent value for money. I prefer it even to a ampeg on which I played in the box again.
The only downside (not negligible) is its weight: 27 kg, with just one handle on top, it's very fair to take him!
