I was wondering about getting one of those cheapo Behringer pedals for messing around with and maybe using at rehearshal because they're so small to carry.

I hear they're pretty good but a bit flimsy.

Problem is none of the shops near me stock them so I'll have to buy online without trying out.

I was wondering which would be best for metal - anything from Slayer up to death and black metal tones.

Not sure the OD100 will have enough gain, and the UM100 Ultra Metal sounds like it will do the job, but there is also the UD100 Ultra Distortion and the DM100 Distortion Modeller which sounds more versatile.

What do you reckon?

my friend has a behringer pedal and says it kicks for the price...ppl have otld me that they have really similar circutry to boss pedals. the only reason they r cheap is coz they are made out of plastic but you could make a better casing yourself

most single effects pedals are that small. heck, the only 'big' ones are stuff like big muffs and the like. the behringer ones are bigger than the boss ones too as far as i saw

I bought a behringer phase shifter and its quite nice on clean tone but it sucks MAJOR A$$ with dstortion.Piece o crap.
The distortions suck ass to. Just save up some cash to something better.

The Behringer pedals are almost carbon copies of BOSS circuits. The EQ sounds a lot better than the BOSS for some reason.

The Big Muff and Small Clone/Stone clone (*heh*) are a lot bigger but I opened one to take a look inside and the circuitry isa bout 1/4 the size of the box. They could have easily made the box really small but they made them big to copy the EHX products, i.e to keep with the image and be more "traditional".

They should launch the Big Muff clone in a smaller box.

I have heard that the EQ is really great.
In fact I know of some serious tone freaks who put one in the effects loop of top level amps.

Anyway, this doesn't answer my question - I want to know about the suitability of each pedal.

If they are based on Boss pedals, which is each one based on and which of those is best for what I described.

I agree, but apparently the savings in these pedals are in the construction - whereas Boss are indestructable, these are super flimsy.

ultra metal is obviously based on the mt-2 and ultar distortion im guessing like a ds-1 or something and the overdrive one the sd-1...etc...those are the ones that im im sorta familiar with but the others ive had no encounter with so yeah...
