    Behringer DR400 reviews

    DR400 Digital Reverb/Delay Stompbox Pedal is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 3 Pedals for the Price of One in Stereo This is a fairly versatile entry level pedal that gives you a decent combination of reverb/verb delay/delay setting at a very resonable price. PROS:Budget price. The stereo sound is outstanding.Used for recording,the DR400 is absolutely quiet.A good selection of modes.Adjustable parameters offer fine tuning. CONS:Like most of the Behringer pedals, it's made of heavy plastic that probably won't hold up to repeated stomping.The knobs are small and the modes difficult to dial in because there is no click between modes and the modes are so close together.Not good if you need to make adjusments on the fly.The battery is under the footswitch and difficult to replace. Conclusion:Not a bad pedal for the price.Very good sound.Most guitarist will find something to like about it,as it does give you three pedals in one in stereo.Long term durability may be questionable,especially if you have a heavy foot.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great For A Cheap Pedal This was my first delay pedal ever. It wasn't my first choice, but the one I ultimately wanted was $+, and this one was only $-. Plus, it had reverb built in, so I got it to use while I saved up for the more expensive Delay & Reverb pedals I wanted eventually.As most others have stated, the durability/quality of this pedal is not great. It's plastic, therefore you should use it pretty carefully. Don't stomp too hard on this thing, or you may break it.I liked that there are so many options as far as Delay and Reverb combinations to choose from. That being said, the drawback is that you have to find one that you're going to use most of the time, or constantly be stooping down to turn the knob to the specific one you want to use, which of course is not ideal in a live performance.I also liked that there is a tap-tempo option on this pedal - you aren't forced to try and dial in the tempo using the knob, which is tough especially as you do lots of different songs at different tempos. However, the tap tempo feature is buried a bit, as you have to hold down the switch first to engage that mode, then tap the tempo, and then hold it down again to go back to on/off mode. That's a lot of things to do, especially if you're in the middle of a song, or trying to act quickly between two songs. And it's even harder if you're also the lead vocalist and are singing into a mic while playing - not easy to sing into a mic and look down at your feet at the same time. But it's a huge plus that it even HAS the tap tempo option available, as a lot of others do not.After using the pedal for a while, I noticed something that has become the most annoying drawback to me: it sucks volume. I noticed that when the pedal was engaged, my volume would decrease a bit. It wasn't terribly noticeable until I tried using it to do ambient swells. You turn your guitar volume down, play some notes, then slowly bring the volume up. The delay/reverb makes it swell. The problem is that this pedal sucks volume, so your swells end up being pretty quiet. By the time you bring your volume all the way up, it's not very loud. That was a major bummer for me. Therefore, I suggest adding an EQ or Boost pedal to your chain to compensate, which I found helped quite a bit.My favorite feature of this pedal is the Wet-Dry Balance knob (the first knob on the left). My other delay pedals have the Delay Level knob, but I cannot adjust the volume of the dry signal - at least not easily. But this knob on the DR400 is awesome, especially for ambient swells, since you don't have to worry about the attack of the dry signal making percussive notes in the swell at all.I did end up getting that other expensive delay pedal, and I almost sold this one, but I ended up keeping it, and I use it exclusively for swells. I just keep the balance knob all the way wet, the delay/reverb long, and it sounds great. Plus, the volume suck, which can be a bummer in other situations, turns out to be helpful if I'm talking while I'm playing swells. They're just loud enough to be there, but not overpowering my speaking voice.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT PEDAL FOR THE PRICE I used this pedal with a Strat through a 65w solid state Fender Princeton amp clean w/out reverb.PROS:AMAZZZZIIINNNGGG VALUE!!! This product sounds EXACTLY like a Boss delay for less than half the price. The stompbox is plastic, but seems sturdier than some danelectro or other low end casings. No other$ delay gives you this many features (stereo out, various tonal blending options, tap tempo, etc.)and sounds this good. I LOVE the tap tempo on it. Also, since the casing is plastic it's extremely lightweight. The reverbs sound great in stereo, and seem pretty versatile although..CONS:I REALLY wish this pedal offered a good spring reverb setting. The only reverbs it offers are big room, small room, hall, and plate and there aren't any modulation settings for the delays. Also, it is made of plastic and feels a bit cheap, so if you're really hard on your pedals, it might not last long. These are all trivial complaints considering the price though, the bottom line is that the DR400 offers very high quality delay and reverb with a lot of features for a fraction of the cost of it's name-brand counterparts, and as long as you aren't kicking or jumping on it, I think it is durable enough to last.I don't think this specific pedal is the most amazing delay or reverb I've ever heard, but it's nice to have both in one pedal and I was extremely satisfied with it's versatility and high sound quality. For the price, you could buy two or three of these behringer delays and get versatility beyond your wildest dreams before you've spent what you would've on a single boutique or name brand delay. I plan on buying A LOT more pedals from this Behringer line, and I think this pedal was a great introduction.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what I expected.... Pretty decent pedal for the money. I wasn't expecting a whole lot. I sounds pretty good in stereo. The tap tempo isn't all that great. And when I first played through the pedal I powered it with a brand new battery and it gave me problems. So I just took the battery out and used one of my 9v adapters and it was fine.
