A super pedal!
S.R.M, 06.07.2021
Having heard many good things about this particular model of Behringer pedal, I decided to give it a shot myself. Initially I was rather surprised by the build quality. Having heard it was entirely plastic and felt rather cheap, I was amazed by how much heavier it was than I expected. Of course, the majority of the weight is in the base metal plate, but overall it doesn't feel like it'll break too soon on. Although, the fact that the switch is fundamentally an SMD button on the PCB doesn't spark a sense of ultimate durability over the very long-term (although quite repairable if you know a bit about soldering etc).

Playing with the pedal results in a very fun few options as to how the sound can be adjusted. A maximum delay of 300ms is quite short compared to many other options, but if you're willing to do so, a potentiometer modification is possible to increase the delay time which increases the options it can offer (I haven't personally done this, but it is a rather simple and common modification). Every function does as expected, repeat rate, echo and intensity are all responsive and definitely do make a difference to the output signal.

The retail packaging was excellent, all it came with was the pedal and some manuals, don't expect any fancy cables or anything.

I personally powered the pedal using a 9V battery, which I must admit was quite convoluted. The pedal feels incredibly fragile when changing the battery, and the entire mechanism it uses for that does not strike me with confidence that it will do well in the long run. I highly recommend only using a 9V AC adapter to ensure the pedal will last longer. I will also be doing this from now on.

I paired this particular pedal with my Harley Benton TE-20 (ultra cheap Telecaster clone). Sound quality is perfect, only a slight hiss is added in my particular setup (which could be a variety of different things, not necessarily the pedal).

Here are some TL;DR points (pro's & con's):

Pro's:
- Excellent sound quality
- Construction is fine for the price
- Good packaging
- Very inexpensive
- Knobs/dials are totally fine!
- Very obvious power/battery light

Con's:
- Battery compartment and mechanism is very fragile
- Switch/button in the long run will likely need repair if abused
- Obviously a bit plastic-y, but that's to be expected for such a low price

It really is a bargain of a pedal. If you're looking at any Behringer pedals (or even more expensive delay pedals) I would really give this one a shot. It really is an incredible pedal for the price. You really can't go wrong with it.

Awesome Value!
Lloyd Borrett, 27.09.2021
The Behringer VD400 Vintage Delay Effect Pedal does an excellent job of emulating the Boss DM-3 pedal. It works and sounds like you'd expect. It's a great value for money product.

Great bang for the buck
Delayer , 14.10.2019
Does it what it is supposed to do. It feels like it wont break down very easily. I heard that Behringer is almost the same as Boss pedals, just much cheaper.

I use it in my pedal board as a subtle delay and it does its job perfectly. I can easily get that spacious tone that many guitarists around the world try to achieve.

I feel that the pedal is easy to use with only 3 controllers that control delay time. I dont know yet how durable this pedal is since I just got it and i have no idea how it will last.

I would recommend this pedal if you are short on budget and fancy a very good pedal. Also if you are a starving musician who hasnt made money yet, then your best bet is to buy Behringer pedals from Thomann.

I use it in my pedal board as the last pedal and achieve the sounds that I want. Combine this with reverb pedal and your in spacious heaven. I wish the pedal had some nice colour. Now it seems kind of boring and reminds me of Soviet union. But all in all it was a great purchase.

good delay unit - 300ms max, has a sonic character.
mtclassical, 25.03.2021
its functional, and sounds fine.
not the best or sweetest sounding feedback resonance but it does sound raw in its way.
its good value - a very cheap price delay with a reasonable sound.
warning : 300ms maximum is not a very wide range of delay time.
be sure you this is what you are accepting.
for example - if youre playing a slow reggae song guitar riff, the repeat rate may not go as slow as you hope for. its a limitation of this unit, although its stil useable at faster rates. its is good, for what its cloning.

it clones original "bucket brigade" curcuit designs that maxed out at 300ms,

build quality fine , dials feel fine,
sound is fine, price is a joke.
its not the highest grade audio equipment, but an amauter or a pro can stil use this, and people will just say "sounds cool"
