i used to have the behringer acoustic moddeler pedal and it had a realy loud hiss even when it was off and after a few weeks it just stopped working completely.
and i have only heard bad things about the others.
not sure about others realy, you could try danoelectro

Ultra metals cheap, which provides a cheapish "metal" tone, try one and see, ive got one but dont use it anymore cause my half stacks distortion is better.

Dictionaries are cool too.
I Love Oreos, And im English =D

They're not worth the money. They sound like crap, and they'll break if you step too hard on them. Even if you don't, they'll break soon anyway.

danelectro, they work great and last long, extremely cheap (like 10-15 bucks a piece). The only downside is they're plastic so you can't be too rough with them.

danelectro sounds good..ive owned the ultra metal, and to be honest it is the WORST piece of equipment i've owned. It sounds nasal and extremely trebley.

Burn in hell, Behringer.

+52. The FAB pedals are really good for the price (well, the distortion pedals are supposed to be... not sure about the others)
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

the danelectro's look ugly in my opinion

a very good reason why people buy stompboxes. Just no, sir. No.

I have a Behringer Vintage Distortion pedal and wah, the distotion is okay but the wah is broke. . but when it was in use it wasnt too bad but i'm sure some 'real' wahs will sound much better
#16
I use vintage bosses normally. are there any cheap acoustic simulator effect pedal that are ok?
#17
I had a VD-1 and still have a Delay. They both work great, VD-1 bypass was **** though. If the pedals are breaking when your stepping on them, time to run the treadmill?

Behringer is known for being absolute shite quality. I have never heard a piece of guitar-related equipment from Behringer sound anything but bollocks.
Some of the mixing/PA gear is half decent, on the other hand.

why do people come onto the forum and ask for a suggestion... only to defend their own choices? I own several Behringer pedals and i regret each and everyone... you want to buy? i can send... otherwise save up for boss pedals or some of the higher end digitech stuff... BTW the metal pedals are garbage... just double up on distortion or use some sort of tube overdrive just like Kirk Hammett does...

Some of the Behringer pedals have the same exact circuit from a few of the more sought after pedals from what I've read. A friend of mine has the overdrive. He tweaked the circuit and installed a true bypass switch and it did a lot for the pedal.

If you're not up for modding pedals, then I would suggest you go used. Check out craigslist, gbase and ebay and try to hunt down a deal.

I own the Danelectro EQ pedal and I like it a lot. It also got very good reviews. I wouldn't worry too much about the construction of the pedal even the housing is plastic. It is pretty thick and i havent had any problems although I do not truely "stomp" on the EQ pedal cause I always leave it on.

Aren't they all made with SMD components?
