this is good, and its cheap.
it sounds more high frquency than a big muff but it does sound good.
ive ABd it agaisnt my big muff and its still sounds good. i know its not a clone of that - i dont own a boss fz
not the same sound, but thats fine, desirable even . it can achieve a similar sound,
not quite so much compression or "sustain" as the big muff but a very good sound can be achieved,
it has 2 fuzz modes, one is mid heavy, other is with the mids cut out. theyre both fine. mid scoop is probably what most people will enjoy.
it has high and low eq dials.
it has a 3rd "volume boost" mode, which is useful, and a gain dial for that, as well as a standard volume dial for the fuzz channel overall.
durability is fine, the dials are fine,
ive boughat few of these behringer pedals out of curiosity, and theyre good, its not deniable.
some may not sound quite as "good" or the same as more expensive pedals, but it doesnt matter, its just music and they sound good enough. i use them on guitar or with my synths.
i do want to add tho that i think distortion has always been and still is behringers weakest effect. just my opinion. a bit too "digital"
its like their sound designers prefer a higher frequency "crisp sounding " timbe as standard, when actually - loud music needs less high frequencies to sound clear.
anyway if you want to start playing some crazy heavy guitar - this sf300 will be fine. i doubt you will ever want to sell it even if you "upgrade"
thanks to behringer for this its a decent product. i cant say anything negative about it. if it was 40 pounds it would still be good.
secret mode : its awkward to do - but it is possible to keep the switch between the fuzz 1 and fuzz 2 settings, for a different effect, (but im not advodcating people to try that incase it causes damage to the switch)
