MGR/Thomas Wright's review"Behringer V-Amp 2"

Behringer V-Amp 2
I purchased this unit via a good local dealer in my area of London. I paid £100 which seemed like a good price for all the amp sounds I was supposedly going to have coming through my speakers.

On this unit, there are not many great things about it but I must say that it is designed well and easy to operate. The effects are quite good. E.G - Delay, Echo and Phaser.

When I first got this unit, I was very excited to hear the sounds it gave me after 6 months of a very bad practice amp. Won't mention any names <cough> Park <cough>. However by the end of the evening, I was missing something and I didn't know what it was. After months of trying to make myself like it, I have got increasingly annoyed with it's thin, digital and cold sounds.

There are about 2 or 3 amp models that are usable. Furthurmore, the sampling rate is 31khz!! Now, excuse me if I'm wrong but CD is 44.1 and that's the least people record in these days. I got very confused as to the fact that they didn't bother to put a power switch on the unit so the only way one is going to turn it off is by getting up and going to the wall socket.

I recommend this to someone who has got neighbours that just won't tolerate the noise level of a good amp. Also to someone who knows that they are going as far as demo's only. Please, if you have spent all your cash on mixers, guitars, mics etc. Please don't talk yourself into buying the unit because it's cheap.

The construction seems to be well thought out.

It's quite typical for Behringer to make a unit look like the best one around by it's fancy packaging and looks but what you get when you run your audio through it, make sure you place many cushions behind you so you don't faint with pure terror at the bad quality. This applies to mostly all it's equipment. I have sold this and will soon be moving on to a Marshall AVT275 Valvestate amp which will absolutely kick this thing up in to space.

MGR/AndyTheToneFreak's review"Behringer V-amp 2"

I paid 150 Euro for it new from a local music store. I couldn't resist it when I looked at it and thought of the high overall rating at of it.

I liked the tuner in it, but it was my first tuner so I can't tell if it is a good or bad one, but it worked I think. I guess a few effects in it was good too, but not awesome. I liked the bag and it was a pretty good design.

The sound!! It was the worst sound I've ever heard, so extremely noisy in every imaginable way. It has only a sampling rate at 31,125 kHz and that is much too low if you are a tone freak like me. The price on this thing describes it all. It's a toy for beginners. The dist is awful the tones are sharp and digital. It makes a 2000$ guitar sounding like a 200$ one! (don't buy!)

It seemed to be a well made product.

I would give it 1, but because of the low price and the tuner that worked I give it a 2, people that rate it higher rate it as a product, but as a music gear it is not worth more than a 2 for what it does. I played with my Fender Richie Sambora USA strat, and I prefer not having it in my gear, I returned it. A good decision! Bottom line: Don't buy it, search for good tones instead!

T said it all.


Simple as a general rule, it is not always easy to manipulate its small buttons but the portability is great, however, necessarily.


The sounds are like the design of the machine, hideous, dsiquilibrs volume
and intensity is just repeating or unusable live.
In the room with headphones it's perfect for fun.


It sounds very cheap, it's simply unusable by repeating or live.
In the room with headphones it's okay to have fun.
It is best done in the same price range, go your way.

Lots of effects (which are worth what they are worth), edited by PC, provided more to purchase a special cable.


Easy enough. Read the package leaflet before it helps, but it's not too death.


This is where I loose. I was very disappointed by VAMP2.
I bought it mainly for its Job title and amp simulation to play on stage without amp. I am very disappointed.
The sound that comes out of this box is very acute, and has a tendency to saturate very quickly. I am looking for a clear yet simple (clean and dynamic) that suits me on this machine.
For distos, there's plenty to do, but I do not too m'interresse to distos (I still feel like it buzzes a lot).
If you find a clear, see crunch, roots and organic enough, go your way.

I note all the same that it works well with headphones, and it can make something nice in home studio, but for the live or repeatedly, it is only pouic.


I've had about a year.
I dropped the matter to live, I occasionally used the headphone for fun using effects.

Srement it all, I dunno, I'm not a guitarist.


A lot of knobs your checks directly to rglages is practical and fast.


Well, no, frankly, not worth a POD. To have used the two as ING's, I refer the V-Amp directos behind the scenes!
The attack was drowned, The definition is filthy, it's a galre out of the mix without a scratch cover other instruments. Play alone, the guitar is bleuffante is true. The sound parat standard, it's flattering. But useless in most cases. What shocked me is that it compltement contrast to the POD. One branch, you can play, the volume rises and skyscrapers includes himself alone in the mix without having to do any editing.
With the V-Amp, you spend your time touching the volume. And even the guitarist complained to disagree in the back while he is dj stronger than all others. It does not happen with a POD.


If you want to play alone in your chanmbre is the trick for you. For a more srieuse, go your way.
I have no shares in Line6 but no one has made the diffrence in my studio recordings between POD and a real amp (and certainly not the guitarists who have recorded not long be bewitched s with this little bean, leaving ct their personal amp!).
