Behringer V-Amp/V-Amp Pro

What are these like? I real short on cash so I've been considering them. Otherwise I would go Line 6.
Are the high-gain models any good? I'm not really interested in the FX, just the amp models and the sounds.

I have never used a POD or any of its bigger brothers.

Due to the same reason as you have, I opted for a VAMP-2, bought it for 155 EUR. I'm pretty happy with it.

Now, my background is that I'm a drummer by training and most of my concert experience has been as a drummer or bassist (so basically "rhythm section") and only recently bought my guitar and my VAMP-2, simply to "reconnect to those high-school days". I like listening to Paul Gilbert, Steve Vai, and all the guitar heroes. But I play like ****e.

What I'm trying to say here is that I probably have no knowledge of what makes the VAMP-2 so detestable to the guys on this board, who are more guitar oriented, have tons of experience, and have tried everything ever created on the planet. But, I like what I hear on my VAMP-2 and for the price I paid, that's good enough.

If at all possible, go to your closest music store and try one out for yourself. Then you can also probably try out a POD and the other amp modellers available.

Good luck with your purchase!

believe adrian foden has one-sounded good, but then he was playing a beast of a Jem thru it.. higains are quite nice, not sure about modelling authenticity, but generally nice.

I have a V-Amp2, and think its Hi gains are *roughly* equal to the PODs, but then, I'm no hi-gain conneseur; I like classic rock & classic metal fuzzes. Plus, I don't own a POD - this is from a year old memory of comparing in a store. The V-Amp isn't bad clean either, but no match for my DG Stomp here (or in lower gain fuzzes, either, but the V-Amp sure has lots of choices).

Without a doubt, the V-Amp Pro blows away the Pod Pro! I went into detail on a previous thread. Do a search on this forum.

Ive got a vamp-2. For the money its great. I basicalyl play through my vamp into my big hifi speakers and it sounds sh*t hot! I was going to buy a nice new tube amp but now i realise that for the time being i get everything i want from the vamp.

Took a while to get used to it, and i had problems with my pc recording whilst using it and i was blaiming the crap sound on the vamp but once i sorted it out it was sounding cool.

For the money you cant fault it. Pick one up second hand and its a steal.
