Highly recommended. A fantastic deal, providing far better tone and far more versatility than any comparably priced amp out there. The Behringer V-Tone GM108 is an analog modeling amp that essentially appears to be a reverb-less copy of Tech 21's great line of Trademark amplifiers. Like the Tech 21 amps, this amp has three voicing switches (to control the amp, mod, and speaker settings), which, along with the 3-band EQ and drive control, provide great versatility. In addition to lacking reverb (a feature which I was afraid I'd miss, but which really isn't necessary given the great tone this amp is capable of), the Behringer probably won't provide the kind of pristine direct recording sound quality of which the Tech 21 amps are capable, but it can probably come pretty close. I only use it at home for practice and as something I can take to jams without worrying about it getting damaged, lost, or stolen, and for those purposes it's fantastic, esp. as it cost only $60, as opposed to $300 for my Tech 21 Trademark 30 (which admittedly is 30 watts, whereas this Behringer only pumps out 15). I shopped around and tried out amps costing up to twice the amount I ultimately paid for this Behringer and none of them, including the Vox Pathfinder, Fender Frontman, Roland Cube, and various low-end Peavey and Crate amps, could hold a candle to it, and many of those cost far more for cheap-sounding tone and a much more limited set of features. I bought this amp unplayed and sight unseen based on other reviews I had read and on my ownership of Tech 21 products, and I have absolutely no regrets.

I've had this amp for a while now and it's nothing great. If you're trying to get a nice metal sound look elsewhere. The notes tend to drag into each other, which is a major problem when playing some songs. You pretty much get what you pay for. The only reason i still have this amp is because I've found that it goes great with my bass.

5 stars for the price

By 

from kentucky

Comments about Behringer V-Tone GM108 15W Modeling Guitar Combo Amp:

Let's look at what this amp is and isn't. Will it ever compare to a tube amp? No. Does it have tons of effects and amp models? No. My brother had this in a closet for a few years and my blues junior needed a tube. While it was being ordered I decided to borrow this from him. I didn't expect much, but the tweed setting is very nice. I usually use a fair amount of reverb but turning it slightly toward a wall in the corner seemed to work great. The british and cali sounds do a fair job of recreating that sound, but I believe you will want a bigger speaker for the low end. All in all, this amp makes you better. Distortion hides mistakes, and if you want a fat sound that will tell you when your wrong or right, this does a great job of being a practice amp with many different sounds. If I were a parent buying for a kid, or a beginner wanting an amp cheap...I buy this everyday of the week and twice on sunday. Better amps will be there when your level of playing increases, but for its price, its excellent.

One thing better then the amp was the service

By 

from Euless, TX

Comments about Behringer V-Tone GM108 15W Modeling Guitar Combo Amp:

I originally ordered a Crate Combo amp online from Guitar Center, and then was given a back order notice on the amp. So I called Customer Service to see just how long it would take to get my order. A very sweet and concerned young lady answered and said that she was going to make sure I was happy with doing business with Guitar Center. I told her the amp was for my sons birthday that was just a week away. She told me she probably couldn't promise that I would have it by then. Then she said she could do better then the amp I had selected, and would even save me money in doing so. She then told me about Behringer V-Tone amp. I have heard their amps before and thought that they would have been more expensive then the Crate amp I had selected. Well sure enough the amp rocks and it was on time and saved me money too. Guitar Center you have all my business for sure.

Pretty darn good.

By 

from Maysville, KY

Comments about Behringer V-Tone GM108 15W Modeling Guitar Combo Amp:

For the price, you can't go wrong. First the pros: powerful, for 15w. Great distortion for such a low-price amplifier (I particularly like the British-HiGain-Flat combination). It's rugged, and built wonderfully. Will last for years. The cons: Clean channel leaves much to be desired (I find that a Tweed-Clean-US combination is the best, but it's still...eh.). It's not really compatible with pedals, though Behringer amps are normally best suited to Behringer pedals, which are great quality and very affordable. Overall, a great starter and practice amp, with tons of possibilities. It's been a staple in my studio for a while as well. I use it probably the most. (to compare, I also have a Fender Mustang I and Peavey Rage 258 in my studio.) Without a doubt, if you need a first amp, or a good practice amp, buy it.

Good little monster

By 

from Buffalo, NY

Comments about Behringer V-Tone GM108 15W Modeling Guitar Combo Amp:

I've had this amp for 6 years. Still won't let me down. I love the analog modeling, it sounds a bit more authentic compared to line 6 all digital. Is it the best amp? NO. But is it an excellent amp for the price? YES. For under 100 bucks, you get can model your way to a marshall style crunch, a mesa style high gain, and a great, full, bassy clean tone. The only thing i regret is not having a footswitch to switch between them like i do on my other amps. This little monster gets pretty darn loud, especially for a 15 watt, and maintains its tone pretty well as you crank up the volume. If you need a practice amp that can give you timeless rock tones, and that you can use and abuse for years, get this one.

Great practicing/learning amp!

By 

from Swartz Creek

Comments about Behringer V-Tone GM108 15W Modeling Guitar Combo Amp:

When I first started playing guitar, this was the first amp I bought and practiced on. I've gone on to bigger things, but I still have this amp in my music room. The sounds it can give you are just outstanding for the size of the amp, you really can't ask for any more. You can crank out just about any tune you want, whether it be loaded with overdrive, or just a twangy type of sound, you can get it. It's about as powerful and as versatile as a 15-watt amp can get, and definitely a great choice for anyone who is looking to pick up electric guitar, or anyone who just wants a small, portable amp to practice on. I still use mine once in awhile, even after playing for awhile, maybe you will too!

fantastic amp

By 

from Fresno, CA

Comments about Behringer V-Tone GM108 15W Modeling Guitar Combo Amp:

This is an extremely versatile amp with surprising power for its size. It has powerful drive, but even when it's on 9 or 10 it still retains its clearness; and if you mess with the settings you can get a great hard rock crunch. Or, by contrast, you can get a sweet 50's blues sound that totally feels like its coming from a tube amp. When I first got it I set it on a coffee table; it rattled all the other stuff on the table so much I had to put it on the floor. This amp easily earns its five stars, and for the price you can't beat it.

Great Beginner Amp

By 

from TX

Comments about Behringer V-Tone GM108 15W Modeling Guitar Combo Amp:

This was my first amp to ever own, and i loved it, i have now had it for 3 or 4 years, and not once has it broken, not worked, randomly stopped work, etc. I highly say get this guitar if your a beginner, many nights i would stay up late, plug in the head phones, and play for 3 or 4 hours, and it sounded great all night. The analog modeling is great, which includes, Amp(Tweed,British, and Calif.),Mode(Clean,Hi Gain, and Hot),Speaker(Flat, U.K., and U.S.) 27 different analog modeling sounds! Another thing is, its very tough and can take a beating, you can drop it and it still sounds great. GET IT!
