Behringer 2600 Blue Marvin & Gray Meanie, two limited editions of Behringer’s ARP 2600 clone with a built-in mechanical reverb are now ready for pre-order.

Not a big news but the limited editions of the Behringer 2600 (ARP 2600 clone) are now available for pre-order. These cost almost the same as the normal version but have small changes.

Anyone who can’t wait for the limited versions, the initially released Behringer 2600 will be back in stock in 2-3 weeks at Thomann.

Behringer 2600 Blue Marvin & Gray Meanie VS Behringer 2600

The standard version, as well as the limited versions, are based on the circuits of the original ARP 2600 from Alan R. Pearlman and Dennis Colin. Three analog VCOs, each with LFO modes, FM inputs, multi-mode VCF with dedicated low-pass output, and additional switched high/notch output. These versions also include the improved ADSR and AR envelopes with switchable time factor as well as the additional LFO.

Blue Marvin & Gray Meanie have however small but subtle differences. Besides the new interfaces (gray & blue), both units feature a mechanical spring reverb instead of a digital spring reverb emulation. Then it features “hand-picked components”. Well, what that means in reality, I don’t know sorry. Are these components better in quality or are they just hand-picked for marketing reasons?

Further, it comes with uni-color LEDs instead of the multicolored that makes the 2600 look like a Christmas tree. The new reverb and LEDs are certainly good improvements.


Behringer 2600 Blue Marvin & Gray Meanie are now ready for pre-order for 619€ from Thomann. They are expected to ship in 13-17 weeks. The regular Behringer 2600 is again on stock in 2-3 weeks at Thomann and cost 615€.

  1. I like the colored LEDs on the 2600 as they are color-coded to the individual modules and, at a glance, tell you which process you will be adjusting. I don’t see why people wouldn’t appreciate that!
