Practice Amp Heaven

Never in my (21) years of playing have I ever heard a practice amp that sounds even close to the Behringer GM-108 V-Tone. I borrowed this little guy from a buddy of mine to check out the analog amp modeling, and was totally blown away with the endless variety of sounds I could procure by just tweaking the settings a bit. From Cream-y blues tones on the clean settings, to Zeppelin-y crunch on the hot overdrive settings, I was in absolute heaven! Needless to say, I ordered one immediately afterward. As for the amp itself, the settings (27 of them!) are super easy to figure out. The cabinet, besides being aesthetically pleasing, is solid, uncluttered, and well-built. Sure, reverb would have been nice, but given the amp's great tone, I'm not complaining one bit. I have also read some reviews about the speaker buzzing with the bass and volume turned up a bit - but tell me, what smaller amp doesn't buzz a little? People, this is a practice amp! - not a piece of stage equipment you're gonna' take into Madison Square Garden, and tear the roof off with it! Watching the amp settings, and controlling the volume / tone knobs on your guitar should take care of most, if not all, of these "buzz" issues. I've played my Tellie, Les Paul, and Strat on this amp, and they all sounded GOOD - I mean REALLY GOOD! To sum up, this amp will please the veteran player with its wide array of sounds / settings, not to mention its slick portability, and killer TONE. For the beginning guitarist, it will provide a broad range of interesting guitar sounds on which to build their playing repetoire; a CD-in to play along with their favorite bands; and an amp-silent headphone-out to keep the parents happy when the jamming bug hits late at night. Here's the best part - it's only $60.00! It'd be a bargain at twice that cost! Make no mistake - this little rig ROCKS! Nice job, Behringer.

Versatile little modeling amp

By Cali

from Undisclosed

Comments about Behringer V-Tone GM108 15W Modeling Guitar Combo Amp:

The sounds you can get out of this cheap little amp is remarkable, but just don't expect to play in a band situation with it. I used it for many years of teaching, and when I actually tried to play with a drummer I blew the speaker. I put in a 40 watt speaker (for around 40 bucks) and have had no problems playing with it turned all the way up since. The amp definitely out-powers the stock speaker, so either replace it or don't turn it all the way up.

Not Worth the Money

By Micoolc

from Undisclosed

Comments about Behringer V-Tone GM108 15W Modeling Guitar Combo Amp:

First of all this amp sounds very well on clean channels and the true amp modeling is really nice at the flip of a switch you can go from Bright and Clean to Death Metal Grit this can knock your block off in volume great for a garage band as long as you keep it into the clean channels

Con. when you start throwing in distortion it sounds muddy every thing beings to be thrown all together. And when you try to turn it up it starts to feedback. I can play a little Boston with the UK settings but it does not have that WOW factor. I may just be expecting to much out of this little amp it does have potential. I got this amp 2 years ago and I've been playing for 2 years so this has been my only amp but don't get me wrong I've tried out almost every reasonably priced amp and this just doesn't cut it.

I'm into Rock, Metal, Heavy Metal, and a little country
I use a RP 255 (it helps some what)
I'm saving up to get a Peavey 212.
I tend to keep it on tweed, clean, USA or tweed, hi gain, USA

Overall it would good for some one who's starting out on a budget.

Great Little Amp

By Kevin-Z1F5Q

from LV, NV

Comments about Behringer V-Tone GM108 15W Modeling Guitar Combo Amp:

This is the best value in a small practice amp. It has 15 watts (a little more than most practice amps), but it also has true analog modeling that gives you about 15 different settings from straight acoustic to a pretty heavy and thick distortion. I have used it with several different guitars and even the lower quality ones seem to improve with this amp. It also has a CD/Line in that I run a computer into. As I record each track, I can mix my previously recoreded tracks with my live playing. The price (at least here at Music123) is very reasonable, but it doesn't sacrifice the quality. This is the practice amp you want.

For the price, AWESOME

By Rance Mohammitz

from Louisville, Ky.

Comments about Behringer V-Tone GM108 15W Modeling Guitar Combo Amp:

This little amp is simply awesome for the price. You want a bedroom prctice amp that sounds much bigger than it is buy this thing. This amp does everything all the other reviews says it does for the price of a pedal. You can spend 50-100% more for a name and not nearly the sounds. Moms and Dads, want to buy yer kid their 1st amp to learn on, this would be a fine choice. Only bad thing is treat the jacks and knobs gently or they'll break. It's just the way way it is with something priced this low. Mic'd through a good PA this little amp can sound real good. The manual kinda / sorta shows line out to a board via the headphone jack but headphone output is way hot as expected making it hard to tweak in but hey, it's a PRACTICE / beginner amp.

Best practice amp (not BAND practice ...duh! ))

By Cali

from Undisclosed

Comments about Behringer V-Tone GM108 15W Modeling Guitar Combo Amp:

Best practice amp out there, bar none. Thosewho put this amp down obviously bought the wrongamp. What I don't understand is... why do they keep it when Music123 has such a generous return policy? If you like the tones of this amp but need more volume... buy the GM110...its virtuallythe same amp except 30 watts (instead of 15 watts) with a 10" speaker (instead of 8"). Its much louder with better bass response for 40 bucks more! This amp outshines anything in its price range. I had one of those Ibanez 10 watttoneblasters and gave it away after playing theGM108. If you use this amp for what it is intended for, you'll love it. Want metal? Its in there. Want Stones? Its in there. Want Jazz?Its in there. ITS ALL IN THERE... just don't expect to hear it over a set of drums without miking it or running it through a P.A.

Unbeatable for the price - great sound!

By JHX

from ohio

Comments about Behringer V-Tone GM108 15W Modeling Guitar Combo Amp:

Only one thing it's missing: reverb. I love this thing so much that I want to get the 2x10 version (that and it'll sound even better with effects like reverb and chorus). For 60 bucks, it gives you a lot. And the sound is so good you forget about reverb most of the time. My favorite sound to get out of it is that "tube amp about to explode" dirty sound (tweed, Brit 4x12, cranked gain - full mids). This amp could stand to be more solid, but at 60$, you can afford to buy a couple of them. In fact, I took all the unnecessary stuff off and painted mine. I only use it for practice or sudden jams, or when I can't bring my stack. For this, it is perfect. I give it a 5, b/c the price and sound make up for a lack of reverb and the slightly flimsy pots.

Better than most practice amps, but not much more

Comments about Behringer V-Tone GM108 15W Modeling Guitar Combo Amp:

Whether or not this amp is worth the money really depends on what you need it for. If you must be able to practice out loud (i.e. without headphones) and/or you only have exactly $60 to spend, then this amp is probably the best you're going to find. It is, for example, better than my similarly sized Fender Frontman, in that you have a wider variety of tones, though those tones, through the speaker, are not going to really knock you out. Ironically, the amp sounds better through headphones than through the speaker; but if you don't need to be able to play without headphones, I would recommend spending just a fraction more and buying a V-amp 2, which sounds a million times better than this amp. Oddly, for such a small speaker, it sounds much better loud than it does quiet. And it does get pretty loud quickly, though don't expect to be heard in a band setting with ANY amp this size. As for the tones, you have 3x3x3 combinations: Amps include tweed, Brit and Calif, saturation includes clean, hi-gain and hot, speakers include flat, UK and USA. But the options aren't really as varied as they sound. First, there isn't much difference between hi-gain and hot. Next, to play clean, you pretty much have to be on tweed (and clean, of course), choosing British or Calif as an amp immediately dirties up your signal a little, and not in what I consider a good way. You can choose speaker options while clean, but the difference between UK and USA on the clean channel is minimal, though the difference between either of those and flat is significant. Calif./US combo (with either gain setting) is supposed to sound like Mesas or maybe Randalls, but I find it just really thin and nasal on the GM108 (much better on the V-amp). The only distortion sound I'll probably ever use is the British/UK combo, which I assume to be a Marshall sim and is much meatier. So in spite of all the bells and whistles and Holy Grail promises, really this amp has two settings that I'll ever use: Tweed/Clean/UK and British/Hot/UK. Either of those sounds just about as good as my Frontmans clean and gain channels for a bit less money. One drawback of all these practice amps is the inability to run FX between the gain and the speaker, so you're stuck playing dry (unless you like the sound of reverb or chorus BEFORE gain yuck), and dry just doesn't sound good. Four stars compared to others in its genre, but again, only if you can't afford to step up to a real amp or a V-amp.
