Behringer: UZ400 Ultra Fuzz
I love the ease of use, but I never liked the muddiness of the effect - that's the only really bad thing about it.

UZ400 Ultra Fuzz Reviewed by: technoguyx, on september 06, 2011

Price paid: $ 20

Purchased from: Some unpopular music store in Chile

Ease of Use: The pedal is pretty easy to use, just a Tone and Fuzz knob, plus a Level one (which I adjust to about the same level as the raw signal). It just takes a while with the mentioned knobs to get a decent tone. // 9

Sound: I've used this pedal on both guitar and bass, but with the latter you lose lots of low end, even though the box says it's for both. The effect actually sounds really muddy in most settings, you have to constantly mess with the settings (tone particularly) to get a less muddy tone. Sounds good for alternative rock (I've played some Franz Ferdinand on it). // 5

Reliability & Durability: As with pretty much all Behringer pedals, the only thing protecting it is a plastic casing. I would probably rely on it anyway, if I liked the sound. // 7

Overall Impression: I actually bought this to play some lead bass stuff, it worked decently for that. It doesn't really match my guitar playing style, which is mostly metal. I love the ease of use, but I never liked the muddiness of the effect - that's the only really bad thing about it. If I lost it, I wouldn't really care as I have a B1X multieffects processor now. // 6
