Have you seen this??
I switched on my speakers when I noticed there was a demo video, then on a second glance clocked the guy's haircut and decided not to bother. I would watch a demo by Andy of Reverb, though.
To be fair, it’s a terrible demo. I was more offended by the guitar he was playing than his haircut, which I just assumed was because: Danish.

I noticed the guitar right after the haircut. The damage had already been done; the guitar just compounded it.

I'm guessing he says "This is my clean tone" then plays a saturated chord at some point.

Back on topic, I'm interested in the DC-2 clone. I've been kicking myself for not getting the Behringer clone when they were readily available; hopefully the TC version will mean the end of the silly prices the Behringer ones have been going for.

I wonder if they'll do the PN-2 clone too....

I'm wondering if their Dimension C clone would do a nice synth chorus, a la Roland Juno...
Have you seen this??
that was the worst demo i have seen in ages. if that was his clean tone, he needs a new amp. but saying that, most modern gear demos are done into a slightly dirty amp. which fair enough, it's the prevailing thing in the mainstream guitar community. but if it's down to me, i'd rather hear how a pedal sounds, not how it reacts with a slightly dirty amp.

but if they are re-boxing behringer products. im kinda hoping they do a smaller vintage time machine since 10mm of mine hangs over the edge of my board and it's driving me mental.

$50 is about the right price for a Dimension C.
I found mine in a shop run by an inbred family of hillbillies. They lived in the shop, with their dogs. The whole place smelled like piss and cigarettes, but mostly piss. One of the dudes was couch-ridden and hooked up to an oxygen tank, but still bummed a cigarette off our drummer. They always had Steven Seagal movies playing, and believed the gov't was secretly controlling the weather.

BUT, since no one ever went in there, you could occasionally find some NOS gems that had just been sitting in there for decades. They sold me a Dimension-C, along with two other long-discontinued Boss pedals, new-in-box for $45 each. :)

I bought mine for a similarly cheap price. Used it for a bit, but never really dug it. Flipping it was not a tough decision.
