Behringer ARP 2600 Blue Marvin and Gray Meanie Limited Edition


Not content with their 2600 clone Behringer is bringing back the ultra-rare ARP 2600 Blue Marvin and Gray Meanie synth models.


Another chance to get your hands on a 2600 clone.


Behringer has announced that it will be releasing two new versions of the immensely popular ARP 2600 clone. The two new editions hark back to early rare versions of the iconic semi-modular synth.


The Blue Marvin and Gray Meanie models were early versions of the 2600 before ARP had settled on the final design that we are more accustomed to. How they differ from Behringer own first version of the 2600 is more than just a change in livery.


The most welcome change is the switch to a single coloured LED on all the faders giving it a much more sedate and serious look. Eagle-eyed Behringer fans may notice that both Marvin and Meanie are sporting single colour LEDs, which are also dimmable. A choice we are sure will prove popular. Under the hood, some tweaks have been made. Most notably the addition of a spring reverb and new higher-grade componentry that promises to improve performance. As well as the dual filter, additional LFO, VCO syncs, and USB MIDI.


Apparently, the stocks of Behringer original 2600 clone are on backorder until March, but these two new models are expected to start shipping in February 2021.


Both the Blue Marvin and Gray Meanie will retail for $699, $100 more than the base-model 2600 (and quite a bit cheaper than Korg recently announced ARP 2600 M).
