Don't let the pink plastic fool you....,
This review is from: Behringer UM300 Ultra Metal Distortion Effects Pedal (Electronics)
I bought this as the price was right, thinking I'd soon replace it, assuming both the build and sound quality would be abysmal.
I play a range of music through an Epiphone Explorer and a Fender Frontman 15G, which before plugging this in was a shoddy setup at the best of times. Playing anything from Metallica to the Beatles, I could never quite get the right sound and tone out of my little amp.
Then I plugged this in. WOW. It is easily the most versatile accessory you could buy for your guitar - no matter how crappy you think your amp is, this will sort everything out. Despite having "ultra metal" stamped on it, this pedal is great for every genre, from heavy metal to pop. So far I have not been able to find a song where I couldn't get nearly the exact sound from it. The controls are sensitive, the pedal has a satisfying click to it when you press it (it's amazingly sturdy, by the way) and it lets you sound almost exactly like your favourite artists when set up right. If this broke tonight, I'd buy another one in a heartbeat. For less than £20, this pedal is up there with the Boss distortion pedals. Hats off to Behringer.
