Hardware Deal: for a limited time, you can save over $200 USD on the Behringer 2600 analog Synthesizer, a clone/replica of the ARP 2600
In the past few weeks, I have read more and more in the Synthesizer forums and social media groups that American musicians have bought their Behringer synthesizers in Europe. That at Thomann and other dealers. Mainly because they are significantly cheaper in Europe (beginning of the year 499€). Significantly cheaper than in the US where it’s over $700 USD.
Now a major US retailer has adjusted the prices down resulting in a real Behringer 2600 deal.
Behringer 2600 Deal
US retailer Sweetwater has reduced the price of the Behringer 2600 series by more than $200.
The classic orange/grey version now costs $498,97 USD just under $500 USD (28.62 % OFF). The Blue Marvin is now available for $606,75 USD (25% OFF) while the Gray Meanie is $566,30 USD (30% OFF). Both are also very good prices considering how much they were a few days ago.
The main difference between this version lies mainly in the built-in spring reverb. The classic orange/grey has digital spring reverb emulation while the others have a real spring built-in. Plus the blue and gray version comes with uni-color LEDs on each fader.
And for all those who say: “and we in Europe?” There are no “deals” but the prices have been at this level (579€ for the Blue Marvin at Thomann) for a long time.

For anyone interested in a Behringer 2600 but previously too expensive in the US, this could be a really good deal. For the price, you get a very extensive semi-modular synthesizer with many patch options and a very good vintage sound.
Behringer 2600 is available now at Sweetwater starting at $498,97 USD for a limited time. Sweetwater doesn’t say how long the prices will last.
