Behringer: UC100 Ultra Chorus

Price paid: $ 28.98

Purchased from: Thoma Okaze Gent

Sound — 7
My setup: Fender Stratocaster, Behringer UD100, Behringer UC100 and a little 15W amp. It's never noisy, not even when you turn all the knobs to max. The effects are weak when you have the rate below half, but thats normal whith the chorus effect, once you go over the half it's sounds good.

Overall Impression — 9
I use it play rock, hard rock, metal. It's suitable for anything. If someone stole it, they'd live to regret it, if it where lost I whould certainly buy it again. The price was certainly the most atractive feature, together with the stereo output it has. It's a grate pedal and don't regret buying it.

Reliability & Durability — 7
It seems very dependable to me, it's not made of steel so you should be a little more carefull with it, however if you don't go smashing it with hammers it should be fine. I whouldn't use it without a backup but I whuoldn't use anything without a backup, 'cause when you are drinking beer on stage, you might spill it over your equipment and shortcut it.

Ease of Use — 9
This pedal is very easy to use, as most single effectpedals are. It has 4 knobs: level, tone, rate and depth. Level determines the volume, tone adjusts the tone from low to high, rate sets the speed of the effect and depth determines how strong the effect is. The manual shows what the knobs are for and not much more. No recommended settings or anything.

    if you are a guitarist on a budget, behringer shit is the way to go. I own a few of their pedals and have never had any problems with them.

    Thought this review said it all. It's a chorus pedal. No more no less. Very good value considering the quality of the effect but it's obvious the cost was saved in the build. Cheap plastic construction aside this is a great pedal.

    i got this when i played bass(dont ask-i wanted A pedal lol), and had no clue what chorus was lol. So it's probbly one of my best 15 stupid impulse buys, now i play guitar and know what im doing, i love it.
