Now this is a little bit of a funny topic for most guitarists because we spend a lot of time and money on our amplifiers. I would argue that regardless of your guitars quality that your amp and speaker has the last say, for better or worse.
Behringer always tries to offer professional level equipment at extremely affordable prices. Firstly those guitarists with experience of Behringers cheaper pedals will be concerned about its durability.
As a basic DI the box functions rather well. One of the big concerns with any DI box is the overall colouration of the signal and Behringer claims the DI has an ultra flat EQ response. The DI also allows for impedance and signal matching for directly connecting instruments to mixing desks and amplifiers.
The box requires either 48v phantom power or a 9v battery to run the battery is automatically shut off when phantom power is detected so you can have it as a back-up power.
Here is a video clip of there guitar going through the GI and then direct into the Focusrite 2i4. For about the amp signal that follows please read below! Unlike the DI, the GI is designed to take a signal direct from the speaker output of your amplifier. The first sound is clean with speaker emulation and then without it. Then a distorted signal with emulation and then without.
On clean sounds I found it lacked some of the warmth I associate with a live speakers, as even with the tone dialed back it introduces a lot of top end.
The low resonance is nice on the simulation which makes distorted tones feel really full and driving. All in all the emulation is definitely a usable tone which will sit well in the mix. There is also a line out to speaker which allows you record a live speaker at the same time which is worth considering for more options watch out for phase issues when mixing though.
Thanks for reading and watching it means a lot! Anyone else use one of these? Any other good bargain DI boxes? I'm a Hampshire based guitar instructor, composer, session guitarist and producer.

I keep seeing more and more of their devices cropping up in studio and live sound applications.
Especially in roles that no one wants to spend a lot of money in headphone amp etc. I bought my youngest son a pair of Behringer headphones for a very reasonable price and they have been great, much better quality than the one you get at Best Buy or a chain store for the same price or more.

Behringer GI100 ULTRA-G
It will prove useful for live use or in the studio. For all the giant steps in amp-modelling over the last few years, many of us still prefer the living, breathing sound of our own guitar amplifier pushing air with a couple of choice microphones capturing the results. Often though, it's just impractical; perhaps you are in a small studio with live drums and want to avoid any tub-thumping bleeding on to the guitar track. The Behringer Ultra-G GI is a robust aluminium unit with stackable rubber corners that looks more than up to the job. Around the back, an XLR output is joined by a pair of switches that engage 4 x 12 cabinet simulation and ground lift. If you use a valve amplifier, you'll still need to connect the direct link output to a speaker cabinet of the right impedance to provide your amp with a load. The voicing of the speaker simulation is essentially a preset EQ curve that mimics a mic'd 4 x 12 cabinet.
