Yeah, fair enough. The Behringers do feel really cheap and nasty (appreciate Hurb's infamous demo shows that they are actually fairly robust).

Looks like the Behringer isn't quite identical; I definitely heard more upper-mid harshness from the Behringer (shown in the diagram), but maybe people want a spikier chainsaw? No doubt you could approximate the Boss a little more by just pulling back slightly on the Mid control.

That setting sounds like pure shit to me regardless ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Yeah, it doesn't seem to be substantial and if you're not aiming to exactly reproduce a specific tone it really shouldn't matter to the end user.

As stated it's possible there's more variation between Boss HM-2s than there is between the average HM-2 and one of the clones.

I haven't used mine in ages, it doesn't do World Extermination, Effigy of the Forgotten or Tomb of the Mutilated. Now that I've got a good rig to imitate those tones I don't mind getting rid of gear that doesn't really contribute.
