Behringer V-Tone GMX212
had this for some time and it wasn't until yesterday tht I learned I was suppose to get a footswitch with it and didn't, attempted to find a source to purchase one from behringer only to be told they don't come with the footswitch now, and the footswitch is discontinued so I asked for a schem to see if I could use a different vendors switch and was told no because I am not a certified repair partener. this would have been the end of it except the behringer employee got snotty when asking why I waited 2 years and as I had already told him I wasn't even aware it was suppose to have came with one till I looked at the manual yesterday. i have repaired this amp myself a total of 8 times since buying it new because right after the warranty expired it started failing, well last night i went ahead and cracked her open to do a complete and thorough inspection and find a whole slew of problems ranging from missing 100pf capacitors on the footswitch board to a blob of solder UNDER a couple of the electrolytic caps ( which i have never replaced).

in a nutshell the quality is substandard as is the apparent lack of QC at the factory, after removing the solder from under the caps ( and by under i mean on top of circuit board underneath the caps NOT the solder pads)it satrated to work better than it ever has, i also bought a footswitch today from a local pawn shop for 10.00 and the switch doesn't work on the amp but causes the channel selection and effects to go wonky and not work when plugged in. after spending all day looking i found the old randall footswitch is correctly wired, functioning and SHOULD work with the GMX212, however there are 2 x 100pf surface mount caps shown on the schematic which locates them on the tiny circuit board where the footswitch plugs in yet the actual tiny circuit board is MISSING these 2 caps, so i ordered them in hopes that it fixes the footswitch.

to be honest i would advise against this amp or any other behringer product based on poor customer service ( actually lack thereof) and look for something else.

while at it avoid anything from any sister companies or close partners of behringer to include Bugerra. there are far better amps with better quality than this one.

MGR/Joey Robben's review"Behringer GMX 212 Guitar Amp"

Behringer V-Tone GMX212
I purchased this item off of Ebay for $235. I bought it mainly because my old amp took a dump on me and I needed something for the next show.

I like almost everything, i love the built in effects adn the distortion. The distortion, I think, was better than my Boss DS-1. This thing is extremely loud, I haven't needed to put it past 5 yet! The 2 Jensen speakers kick too.

Not really a whole lot to dislike, except 2 things, it weighs a ton(not that big of a deal), adn that it loses about half volume when played clean. Otherwise an AWESOME piece of equipment!

Awesome quality, I've dropped mine twice and absolutely nothing happened.

This is an awesome amp for any style, any skill level, any situation. Awesome tone and sound. Also very loud. Extremely well built. Buy it now!

Behringer V-Tone GMX212
Bought on-line from GAK Centre,Brighton.UK.
Paid £195,which is as competatively priced as I could find .Decided to buy new after losing out on several E-Bay auctions and reading other reviews on this site

What's not to like.The unit looks good and has rear connections for midi,extension speakers,headphones,effects send/return.99 built in fully tuneable effects so you can create any sound you would want.3 amp models +3 modes+3 speaker settings giving plenty of combinations.Also two channels operated through the included footswitch which also turns the effects on/ you can leave different settings on each channel.low,mid and high knobs+a drive control for each channel.Crank up the drive and the level and stand back.Built in tuner is quite handy

footswitch only turns the effects on or off,be nice if you could scroll through them.Also only one input for guitar when this baby could easily handle two

seems to be a reasonably solid construction,well layed out controls and all the "bells and whistles" you could wish for

bought to replace my Marshall 15 watter + my zoom 707 ,and can only say that I AM WELL SATISFIED WITH MY PURCHASE

Behringer V-Tone GMX212
I bought this one online at Same Day, they have a lower shipping charges. I had a Fender Deluxe 112 plus that put out 90 watts of power but didn’t have the crunch I was looking for.
Well I was looking at the new Spider amps from Line 6 but since they are harder than hens teeth to find and I needed an amp I took a chance with Behringer. I have a good friend that owns a Behringer bass amp and that amp was very sound for the money.
I paid 250 dollars and shipping wasn’t very much more, 9 bucks I think.

This amp has THREE killer settings! Tweed, for the Fender fans and it sounds good too. British for the Marshall/Vox type sounds and Californian for their Mesa type sounds. All of these settings can be used either with Clean, Hi Gain, or HOT! Take into consideration that this amp also has three Cabinet settings too, Flat, UK and US which helps to change the tone just that much more!

It has Two channels that can be set to your needs and comes with a two switch foot controller that can which between channel and turn on or off the cool 24 bit effects. This amp has a neat little tuner on board too, it’s nice a simpe the way a tune should be and you can change the A tone from 440 hz up or down 15 hz.

Now the effects range from reverb, chorus, flang, phase, rotary, echo, delay and a bunch more. It’s Midi effects so it will work with a Midi board too.
This baby can push 50 watts through two 12 inch Jenson speakers that can take up to 70 watts of power. Now on the back panel of this amp is enough to blow you away for a 250-dollar amp! Inputs for cabinets, to drive other amps midi control, headphones you name it it’s got it!

And the best part is the sounds, bottom line it can make the tone you are looking for.

The particleboard used to build the amp is a down side. I would love to see this baby with a way for more control with the standard foot controller. But for the money….. can’t go wrong.

It's built solid however the plastic knobs I'll be gentle with and I already stated the particleboard type of encasement. Got to say I like what I see or rather hear so far. ; )

I’m very pleased with this amp, it has the sounds that I was looking for and the price is prefect! I have a friend who owns the Fender Cyber Twin and yes the Cyber Twin is a better amp however dollar for dollar I’m not downing the Behringer at all. For this GMX does put out some great sounds just like the Cyber Twin!

Bottom line, the value is unbeatable and I’ll give this amp a big thumbs up.
