Audiofanzine FR's review

Behringer V-Amp 2
(Originally written by Gratt'oche/translated from Audiofanzine FR)

Small analog multi-effect entirely made of plastic shaped after a Les Paul...
It produces most of the common effects: delay, distortion and amp simulations.
You can edit and save the effects. The connections are very simple: Guitar input, headphone output, aux input, L/R outputs, footswitch and Midi in/out.

UTILIZATION

The user's manual is ok but you won't need it to edit your sounds if you've already used similar effect units. The edition is somewhat tedious because it has only a 2-digit display, making it just as hard as on every other multieffect with such a display. After a while, you'll get used to it. However the LED rings around the controls are a very good idea...

SOUND QUALITY

Regarding sounds, and considering its price tag, I wasn't expecting anything extraordinary... But I never thought... Nothing is really believable.
It's not as bad with headphones, but don't expect to use it for recordings because it won't enhance your playing...

OVERALL OPINION

I bought it a couple of years ago but it hasn't come out of its lovely bag that often. It was a second-hand impulse buy. Why didn't I stay in bed that day...?
Though, it can be helpful, for its price...

I regret ever buying it... Very unsuitable for rehearsal and concert, and it will certainly do no better in the studio. I recommend you to avoid it. It was ok when it came out, but now it's totally obsolete.

MGR/Doug's review"Behringer V-AMP 2"

Behringer V-Amp 2
Paid too much, $160

I only use this device for the effects and the tuner, so pertaining to those I like it.


The Amp simulation is horrible. If Behringer would have just focused on good tone instead of so many useless Amp simulations they would have a better product. The absolute worst thing about this device is that the footswitch takes like 3 days to respond and bank over to the next preset. That makes the V AMP completely useless for me. I play in a metal band and just cant have 2 seconds of silence every time I need to switch presets, I need a device that will switch channels within milliseconds, and do so seamlessly. I believe that their is a better footswitch on the market that may respond faster being as it would use the midi port, but I am not about to put any more money towards this device. I also work as a recording engineer and my opinion is that the device is pretty much useless in the studio with the exception of the effects and tuner. I think I am going to purchase what my lead guitarist has: A Rocktron Chamelion, more money but oh well ya get what ya pay for. BUYER BEWARE

Good construction but what good is that if the Amp sims sound crappy and the footswitch is slow?

If you're a beginning guitarist who wants a cool toy from mommy and daddy for xmas, put this on your wishlist. BUT if you are a serious guitarist, in a band, or involved in any studio recording... STAY AWAY.

Behringer V-Amp 2
Small multi purpose analog, all plastic, the shape is vaguely reminiscent of the Les Paul ...
It allows the most common effects: modulation, delay, distos and amp simulations.
The effects are editable and can be stored in memory, connectivity level is extremely simple: guitar in, headphones with in, L / R outputs, pedal, and in / out noon.

UTILIZATION

The manual is sufficient to guide you, but if you have a little experience of the effects, you will not even need to edit the sounds. Pou do this, for against, it's a bit tedious: the interface consists of two digits is not very clear, as in most multi effects provided with such a screen ... That said, you end up confusing. However, the LEDs around the pots are a good idea ... Legible and simple.

SOUND QUALITY

Sound level for the p ^ rix of the beast, do not expect a revolution ... But at this point, I imagined it ... Nothing is really credible.
It's not super bad example to the headphone, but do not use it to record, it will not enhance your game ...

OVERALL OPINION

I have for several years, but it no longer leaves her pretty bag for a while, I bought on a whim, in OCCAZ that day, I would have done better to stay in bed .. .
However, for the price, it can still make a lot of services ...

I regret this purchase, very unsuitable for rehearsals and concert, he makes up just in the studio. I recommend to avoid it, he left, he was drinking, but now it is totally beyond ..

Behringer V-Amp 2
On paper: RAS.
Only regret: the effects are not cumulative.

UTILIZATION

The edition pushes effects and HP is more complicated.

SOUND QUALITY

The sounds are rich and varied.

OVERALL OPINION

I bought one. It ran 30 minutes before planting (over her) and refuse to restart DEFINITIONS (error code the ignition). Apparently a problem at the chip APRS what I read on some forums p in English. I sent back and I will give notice when I DEFINITIONS receive one that works.
Stability and reliability at a really scary ...
