    Kind of, but even worse, if you can imagine that.

    Don't they have like several fuzz settings? I like cheap. I have no problem with behringer pedals. I've had several. But I've never got the fuzz.

    I'm always just about to put it in the cart and get one, since they're so cheap. Then I'm all, "if they're so cheap, I could probably build one for cheap, because fuzz circuitry is simple." Then I try and fail miserably. Then I think maybe I just need to get a "good" fuzz. But then I never buy one because they are all so overpriced (IMO). Then I see the behringer....

    I have a love-hate relationship with fuzz pedals.

    If it sounds like the Univox SuperFuzz, then it's a bargain ! ;):D

    I ordered one from them last May,it went on back order so I requested to stay on the list and got backorder notices on a regular basis until they cancelled it
    About a month ago I put in another order for one so hopefully this means it will be on the way soon .
    This guy gives it a great review

    The only manufacturer I've routinely had to cancel orders for is behringer. Continually on backorder. But it's not always reflected at purchase time, and never follows estimated ship. I rarely buy big ticket behringer products, so I tend to just cancel after the first or second delay. Rarely worth the wait. We're talking about cheap pedals. Nothing mission critical here.

    I think the FZ-2 is the only Boss pedal I actually don't desire to own. :oops:

    It's not bad but I still prefer the real deal. Old school FZ-2 for the win!

    No, thanks. But I played “Over, Under, Sideways, Down” in its honor.

    Jimmy P. certainly was discrimination when it came to tone.

    Wow!
    10 years ago anyone who mentioned Behringer pedals here was criticized beyond belief!
    Funny thing is they were $20-$30 back then(Canada) and I used to A/B with Boss pedals and prefer the Behringer! :)

    What's cheap? There's a bunch on ebay over here starting at $50 bucks AU. I wont buy from that cheapest seller though because he is a scumbag who tried to rip me off a few years back by shipping me a lower priced model which was also an obvious customer return, then was rude when I called and made me lose my cool which is rare. Looks like I have to spend an extra $10 bucks to give the business to the next seller that isn't a scumbag like the douche at DJ City.

    they're mostly north of $250 used these days because of electric wizard.

    the pedal has three modes.

    mode one is more of a doom fuzz, with a lot of mids.

    mode two has scooped mids and gives you more of a crust punk sound or like something off a nine inch nails record. the mid scoop isn't the same as on an hm-2 but it gives a little bit of chainsaw to the sound.

    mode three is a really nice clean boost.

    modes one and two give some hints of octave up depending on how you're playing.

    it has bass and treble controls and is one of the only dirt pedals i know that doesn't cut low end.

    my roommate makes breakcore and he uses the clean boost mode just to push his mixes a little harder.

    i'm not familiar with that univox fuzz.

    this pedal does a good job pushing the single coils on my jaguar into territory more often occupied by humbucker equipped guitars, and is a fantastic pedal for playing heavier music. mode two is better for playing faster/busier parts than mode one.

    anyway i already had one and it's an important part of my pedalboard, i just really wanted a backup in case anything happened to it.
