HM300 vs HM2
This is just a direct signal comparison, these pedals sound best when used with other amplifiers, but that is harder to make an accurate video for.

Great comparison here. Thanks for sharing.

Weird flanger in the HM-2. I didn't know that existed.

To me, the behringer sounds more like the iconic HM-2 tone than the original, real thing. :scratch:

I didn't particularly like either. But then I don't like the buzzsaw sound in general (which sounds weird since my primary band is very swedish-influenced osdm). I prefer something more organic and lively.

But to my ears the HM300 somehow sounded like my idea of the Swedish guitar sound rather than the HM-2. We should realise though that recording setup is a lot more than just one pedal and the recorded album tones are probably different from the source sounds in the first place.

Oh its fine to listen to. I just wouldn't utilize it myself. It's like how I love John Mayer's tone to bits but could never play like that with his setup.

Yea that makes sense. There's plenty of bands I dig but don't like their gear and how they achieve their sound. I just happen to do like the HM2 but only specifically if used for that.
