Review of Behringer UM300 Ultra Metal Distortion Effects Pedal,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Behringer UM300 Ultra Metal Distortion Effects Pedal (Electronics)
Pros: The Behringer UM300 produces a breathtaking variety of sounds, especially when using the 'Mid Freq' control, which gives the individual almost every kind of 'scooped mid' sound there is. This enables the pedal to provide many different types of metal sound, from vintage to extreme. With the 'Mid' and 'Mid Freq' controls set to zero, the pedal produces nice, slightly compressed grunge,vintage metal and classic rock sounds. The sounds are first rate and easily compare with pedals 3-4 times the price, resulting in superb value for money! This pedal could easily be used for professional recordings and gigs.The plastic chassis is strong enough to take on the road and I have gigged regularly with several Behringer pedals - they stood up to the test very well.
Cons: The buttons on each side of the pedal have to be depressed simultaneously using a pen in order to lift the pedal tread to reach the battery inside.This can be a little tricky. I also used the UM300 with an amplifier modeler pedal. The sound of the modeler pedal significantly altered the tone of the UM300 in a negative way, In fairness, more time was required to tweak the UM300 under these circumstances, and all things considered, these are minor issues when taking the low price of the unit into consideration.
