Behringer has been cloning pedals lately, and this is no exception. However, they decided to clone an odd pedal -- the Boss XT-2 Xtortion. This is an extremely polarizing pedal, so I'm not exactly sure why they decided to clone it. It has the same level, punch, contour and distortion knobs like the original.
Unlike the Boss counterparts, I'm not exactly sure how well these will stand up to touring. Where as the Boss products are known to be able to survive a nuclear holocaust, this pedal is still new. The casing itself isn't too bad, and it seems like it could take some abuse without much of an issue. It's ridiculously easy to set up, and you shouldn't even need to read the manual as to how to run this thing. That said, I have never read the actual manual, so I can't comment as to how well it's written.
First of all, I dislike the original Boss version a lot, and considering this is a clone, it's pretty much going to be a similar review. There's a reason why it was discontinued after only being available for a few years. The distortion in this pedal is extremely harsh. It has this odd, gritty, yet boxy kinda sound. In fact, it sounds exactly like a that infamous "pedal distortion" that so many have come to hate. When you back off the gain, it sounds extremely thin and harsh. Maxing out the gain will result in a swarm of bees so powerful that you'll wonder if your amp is broken, and I don't mean that in a good way. Some ridiculous fuzzes can do that speaker breaking stuff in a cool way, but I could never find a usable tone with this thing.
If you liked the Boss XT-2 Xtortion, you're in an extremely small group of people. If that's the case, you're probably better off getting one of these. They're cheaper and easier to find. However, for 99% of the normal people out there who like good guitar tones, you'll want to avoid this pedal like the plague. It really sounds awful and buzzy in every possible way.
That is, purchased with her sisters and HD300WD300 and VT999 (the benefit of affordable prices!) Here about a month.
Very different from the others in terms of sound, like Pan in g. ..
Level for the output volume, therefore, is like the outline wd300 is no way to act only on the treble. Which are widely represented ...
Punch is added midrange output and the rate of saturax dist.
Dazzling blue LED, lézieu attention and silent switch works every time. Its correct bypass.
Using not too simple, I outline Me-punch to eleven hours to better balance, but I do not play dark metal and company.
Disto moderate rate, curiously, I'm all (the equivalent of eleven o'clock wd300 level gain).
The craft has a sacred punch beside her sisters are totally forgotten.
Big presence, big punch, therefore, not easy to manage if you alternate with clear sound or other distortion.
on the other hand if you set your amp clean according to the XD300 you get a fabulous sound for everything related to metal, with much more conviction than his sister or most other distos I tested.
The grain is fine and basic music, this pedal will soon level sound, sacred accelerations!
The enthusiasm of the XD300 is somewhat reminiscent of the grunge digitech sound level of sound.
I was not expecting that at all, it's a very nice surprise.
The problem I have is that it refers to other illico cloakroom, and the light will miss his presence so I want everything. So I tend to use only sound, but a sacred place!
I am surprised at the quality of its proposed by my hd-wd-xd 300, and their differences. As for the fare, you laugh ...
In short it's a great pedal, a sacred lady domina need to know.
On your knees!
