Incredible pedal at a really affordable price.

By Laura Ramirez

from Hermosillo , Mexico

Comments about Behringer VT999 Vintage Tube Monster Classic Tube Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

I got this almost 2 years ago and i love it... why? Because it is extremely versatil, it can go from an overdrive sound to a metal distortion. Pretty easy to use, noise gate function is alright. It uses one 12ax7 tube which gives really good power, however i have read that it sounds better with a 12at7 or even a 12au7, haven't tried yet but i will pretty soon. Stock tube sounds quite well, i placed an EH 12ax7 and it sounds great as well. I do really recommend it, i think it has a better sound than most of the distortion pedals in the market. YOU DON'T NEED BOUTIQUE PEDALS TO SOUND REALLY GOOD ! If you see one of these, try it, im pretty sure you will love it. If i ever lose it or get stolen, i would definitely go and buy another one. Behringer has a bad reputation about his pedals, quality, sound , but this one makes the difference, IT IS my main distortion pedal. The only CON that i can mention about this pedal is the BLUE LED that tells you that the pedal has power ( because it has two leds, Blue one that's for "HEY I HAVE POWER" and the Red one is that the distortion it's actuall ON) It's to bright, but not a big deal, i placed some black tape and TADA! that worked !

Very impressed

About Me Professional Musician

Comments about Behringer VT999 Vintage Tube Monster Classic Tube Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

Like many people, I did the research online and read a number of reviews. I did what many people said to do, which was to replace the stock tube. I replaced it with a Groove Tube 12ax7 and what a difference. I bought the pedal two days ago and used it on the gig last night. The true test is live performing and this pedal was amazing. Warm, rich, full tones with a super smooth top end. It has a 3 band eq and it allows you to really dial it in. I used the pedal with an SG and a Strat and I was able to set them up with ease and get everything from Zepplin to Eric Johnson. The reviews are definitely spot on about the size of the pedal but once I heard it, I didn't mind the size at all. The pedal is great anyway but for this price, it's a steal. Well worth it to have this in your arsenal.

Comments about Behringer VT999 Vintage Tube Monster Classic Tube Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

This thing was not what I expected at all. Based on the reviews I really thought I had found a diamond in the rough only to be very let down by this product. This device made everything I plugged into it sound horrible. I tried three different tubes in it. 2 brands of 12AX7C & a 12AT7. Nothing helped this over-hyped chunk of junk. I gave it two weeks of daily experimentation & returned it.

Okay if used in conjunction with another overdrive pedal

Comments about Behringer VT999 Vintage Tube Monster Classic Tube Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

I bought the Behringer VT999 to use with a Fender Twin Reverb. I plugged it in and gave it some time to let the preamp tube warm up. By itself, the overdrive was not what I was looking for; farty/flabby kind of overdrive tones. But when I plug into my Fulltone Full Drive pedal, then into the VT 999 that is the sound I was looking for. The VT999 adds a lot of creamier/warmer kind of overdrive tone to the Fulltone pedal that both seem to lack on their own.

    Comments about Behringer VT999 Vintage Tube Monster Classic Tube Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

    This pedal sounds great and its fun to experiment with different tubes and get different sounds. Buy one and you won't regret it. I wouldn't put it on my pedalboard because it's so big but I have lots of fun using this pedal. I put in a IN 12au7 tube and it sounds great, the stock tube sounded great too tho.

        Comments about Behringer VT999 Vintage Tube Monster Classic Tube Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

        Basically it's tube preamp in a stomp box, comes with stock 12AX7 tube that I switched for a 12AU7 for much better results. Might be too big on some pedal boards but works perfectly on mine and has it's own adapter as well. If you're looking for a tube like OD/Distortion for around $50.00 with a 3 band EQ, this could be your ticket. Behringer has been hit or miss with certain items but they hit the bulls eye with this one.
