Rapport qualité/prix : Excellent
Behringer's Vintage Phaser VP1 is an effects box that I've used with electric guitar. The pedal is a cheap option to get a gritter sounding sort of phaser pedal. I don't know what, if any, pedal this is modeled after, but the look definitely reminds me of an Electro-Harmonix pedal. The VP1 has a standard make up with 1/4" connections for input and output and a nine volt power supply jack. It also has a battery compartment, and it isn't rack mountable since it's a foot controlled pedal.


Using the Behringer Vintage Phaser VP1 couldn't be simpler. It just has a large knob for setting the rate, which gives you ten different points to choose from. It also has a tone switch, but essentially the rate knob is where you'll get your differing sounds from. That's pretty much all you'd need to know, so a manual shouldn't be necessary for most users.


The sound of the Behringer Vintage Phaser VP1 is actually not too bad. Generally I'm really not a fan of the way Behringer pedals sound, as they seem contrived to me, but the VP1 sounds okay enough. I wouldn't use the pedal for recording myself, but if you want a super cheap phaser pedal to get started with, the VP1 will get the job done. Even though there aren't many parameters to work with, it's actually possible to get a good amount of differing sounds just from where you place the rate knob. I like it best for slower phasing that's more subtle, but it's possible to also get sounds that are more rotary reminiscent. The only problem with the VP1 in terms of sound quality is that you will lose a bit of signal with this pedal in your chain.


For a pedal of this price I certainly can't do much complaining, but if don't expect too much from the Behringer Vintage Phaser VP1 you'll most likely be pretty happy with it. It's fine for getting quick and easy phasing sounds for your guitar or otherwise, but it's definitley not on a professional's level. I'd recommend checking it out if you're looking for a cheap phaser pedal to add to the mix, but it might also be worth it to spend a few extra bucks on something like the Boss PH-3 or the MXR Phase 90...
