The pedal industry as a whole revolves around several different circuits and their variations, some companies work hard to break the boundaries such as the likes of TC Electronic but most companies look at what sells and add their own spin/USP to the products.
With Behringer, USP is often at cost, but with some of their pedals, it’s available! You see some of the clone pedals Behringer makes are no longer available from their original manufacturers and the second-hand prices can be silly.
Back in the late 80s Tech 21 created the amazing GT2 which they still produce today, the TM300 is a replica of this circuit and rehouses it in the smaller Behringer enclosure. This circuit offers the expected two-band EQ, level and drive similar to a normal overdrive circuit however it has 3 amp voicings which are in the realms of Mesa, Marshall and Fender.
You also have 3 levels of how hot the “amp” would be running, so clean, hi-gain and hot (think of the brown sounds perhaps) and finally, there’s the mic placement which you can use on our demo to hear the effects of off-axis, centre & classic. This circuit is well-loved the world over and can really teach you a lot about the different flavours of amps available.
