I didn't really look at any other amps at the time I got this. I already had a V-Amp, so I stuck with Behringer. A lot of people knock them, but for the money, you can't beat 'em.

This was my first amp, not including the practice amp that came with my Squier Strat Pak. I'd say it's good for most anything but metal, since you can only get so much distortion with the Hell channel. Mine was black rather than the blue that must have been when they first came out. It's fairly heavy, but I guess that's because the construction is MDF I believe. Mine came with the Jensen speaker. For the price, it was a good first amp. However pretty much from the start, I used it basically as a PA with my V-Amp 2 running into the aux/in jacks on the back. Today if I were going to buy a first amp, it would probably be the V-Ampire.
I'm still a beginner - I like blues, although heavy rock is good too. Alone, I guess I'd want more tones than is possible with a straight Blue Devil, but with my V-Amp 2, it puts out any kind of tone for any style of music you'd want. I never really used it stand alone much, as I had the V-Amp 2 already when I got this.
It's easy to program, however you're stuck with only one effect at a time, which is sort of lame.
I suppose you could gig with this, but I'd be careful. The pots aren't that rugged and I imagine the shafts would break easily.
The greatest amp an aspiring guitarist can buy to produce a wonderfull tone at an extremely affordable price

60 W amp that packs a punch with 99 preset effects for anything you want to play, its got Wah, Distortion, Reverb, Delay, Compression and much much more. It has a handy footswithch to change wheter the eefect is wanted or if you want heaven or hell channel, clean or distorted. It has your basic equalizer controls, bass middle and treble. The only thing is that its not a tube amp, but the quality is unheard of for a replica. I'd suggest it for anyone who plays at gigs, and its very affordable
I love it, its great for gigs, you can get a clean sound or your heavy metal distortion, whichever one you're in the mood for! But, its not a tube amp, so the quality isn't the best, but its the best replica i've heard.
At first you have to set your preferences, but after saving them the effects are a breeze. My only complaint would be is that there are two buttons to scroll through 99 effects, but thats not really a problem. A little heavy to lug around
Very durable, its built like a rock!
