Ok - we all know the reputation Behringer have for being the dodgiest, cheapest alternative to every pedal brand going, but at times I do take issue with its bad reputation and the VM1 is one of those instances. As far as being a Memory Man clone goes, it's not half bad. Great tone from it, the chorus and vibrato are pretty solid and it's just a lovely clean delay. Amazing value for money,
VERY similar in sound to an EHX Memory Man. I was on the fence about purchasing one or to just go the distance and get the Memory Man until I came across an old thread on TheGearPage about a blind test to see if the community could identify the difference between the VM1 and the EHX MM. Nearly every community member who participated in the blind test thought the VM1 was actually the EHX MM.
It's a clone of the deluxe memoryman, the pots feel a bit wonkey, but it's a good clone. The repeats are alot darker than on the memoryman though.(which I actually like better). I think it's horrible to copy designs, but atleast they've done a good job at it
I got this pedal for £35. It's cheap and it's a clone(or trying to be) of the EHX Memory Man. It has very dark repeats, almost too dark. Nevertheless it has some great features like chorus and vibrato as well. Only drawback in the cho/vib section is that you cannot change the rate of modulation. I have only played it through my Roland Cube Street yet. On the Fender Twin and JC-120 emulations, the delay sounds really good and really warm. But on the Vox Ac emulation, the repeats sound horrible and very noisy. I really enjoy experimenting with this pedal, and I am going to gig with it.
