Behringer...WHY!?!?!

Has anyone else noticed that there's no easy way to get into the Behringer stompboxes and get at the circuit?

I was feeling curious as I often am and felt like having a peak in my EQ700.


I took off the back plate (bit of a strain, the screws were glued in) and expected to see some wires, componants and a PCB.

NOPE.
Just yellow plastic, no way in.

Am I missing something?

Re: Behringer...WHY!?!?!

Unfortunately Behringer has become a maker of "throw away" products. Even more in the last 15 years.

Why be able to easily access the inards of your device when they really just want you to buy a replacement or extended warrenty in the first place.

Re: Behringer...WHY!?!?!

Did you take that picture with a Behringer camera?

Behringer makes really shitty copies/clones/rip-offs of other great products. Buy the "original" pedals that they rip off. You will thank yourself later.

edit: I haven't tried them all, but the ones I've tried didn't sound good. The buffer (in all of them, I think) steal alot of tone. Personally, I want true bypass.

Does that go for all their products? Mixers included?

I had a couple people on a gear forum suggest a couple models of mixers to me...this one included:

I don't know. I just know they have a wide-spread rep of doing clones/rips/copies...that most of the time suck.

I don't know about that one as I haven't tried it. XENYX Sounds like a straight copy of Mackies ONYX range.

The Behringer mixers I've used all sounded shit, and turned the sound into mush.

I'm glad I have you guys to steer me in the right direction. Thanks.

Otherwise, I very well could be wasting money left and right.

Can't believe I ever bought more than one of their products.

Re: Behringer...WHY!?!?!

It is pretty much much a shit clone of a Boss GE-7.

I would have bought a decent eq but I was skint at the time.

Anyway, I have it now and that's that. But I want to fuck around with it's guts and it won't let me.

It's not fair

Re: Behringer...WHY!?!?!

^ Sorry about that.

Sidenote: I find it suiting that the name is Behringer, which sounds a bit like Beginner, who is the target of their products.

I once had a Behringer mixer...turns out it was better at picking up radio stations than the sound I was trying to put through it.

Re: Behringer...WHY!?!?!

We have some Behringer stuff at uni, mixers and what not. Not terrible but not something I'd personally own.

I wouldn't mind the BCF2000 though, just to have a control surface.

I bought a Behringer Djx 700 which is a rip off of one of the pioneers and I said never again

I put it up for sale and sold it within a week, when I tried to sell my ecler evo 4 it took me 3 months

Re: Behringer...WHY!?!?!

There's a few Behringer products which are really good.

I have a decent bass cabinet by them. Not amazing but it sounds fine.

Also the BCF and BCR2000 are both great control surfaces, decentlybuilt, metal casing and all... Also I've heard their patch bays are of a decent quality.

Most of their stuff is pretty bunk otherwise. They do have the occasional really nice piece of gear though.

Probably. But not for the BCF and BCR. I really like them. And shit, if they're good enough for Tim Exile...

But yeah anything else of theirs, if you can afford better it's almost guaranteed to be worth it.
