For those wanting to upgrade or side grade to a single unit this product can't be beat for the price and features. A solid metal enclosure and large LED with a properly angled face is easy on the eyes for stage use. Adjustable tuning reference and easy access to the tuner is a plus. An option to set the sensitivity of the foot pedal in addition to parameters was also a selling point for me. The factory sound set is quite good and and is a great starting point of the potential tones waiting to be tweaked. I tried several bass guitars [active and passive pickups] thru this box with no tone coloration or weird EQ issues. The effect mix control has a wide range and is precise. The software makes backups quick and easily done. Low end bass guitars will benefit a lot from the preamp section to get a monster tone. The only cons I found are there is no on/off switch and they could have offered a few less distortions and a few more EQ options with a sweepable range. Overall I am very pleased with this product and highly recommend it to all fellow bassists.

I had the old Digitech BP200 series pedal, and that recently, after over a decade a loyal unwavering service, finally died on me. Having a benefit concert coming up in October, and missing my signature "sound" that I ran my Peavy Grind-6 through to give me a smokey mournful tone, I purchased the BP355, thinking that it had to be as good, if not better, than the BP200. I have mixed emotions on it.
While it certainly is more versatile as far as the complex outputs go (a pair of stereo line-outs for your amp, a pair of stereo mic out to the mixer, and a USB for the 'puter), and the distortion stomp box option is good for when you might want to give your tone a little "bite" (or not) to me was a pleasant add.
I was disappointed in the library of sounds. On the BP200, you had 80 channels (40 you could edit, 40 non-editable presets). This pedal you had 75, and a lot of them sounded a lot alike sans a setting or two. On the BP200, you had a more vast array of presets (both editable and non-editable) that took advantage of the different effects and settings.
On the BP200, you could contour the EQ using by tweaking the Lo's, Mid's, and Hi's to cater to your particular sound. On the BR355, it seems you have 4 predetermined settings, and I haven't figured out if they're editable or not, but I'm not jumping up and down for joy over them.
The expression/wah can be tricky. If you're not careful and are trying to give yourself some dynamics, be careful or your sudden quieting could turn into a sudden wah-wah nightmare. It was so much better on the BP200 when you had to engage the wah setting when editing to make the expression pedal the wah pedal.

Bottom line, if you've used Digitech's BP series modeling pedals in the past, you'll probably like this one. I'm just not really impressed with the 'upgrades' from the older series I had.

Digitech BP355 Review

By sandmann

Comments about DigiTech BP355 Bass Multi-Effects Pedal:

This thing is insane for the price. I can get any sound that I want out of this multi effect pedal and it doesn't matter what style of music I'm playing, it has it all at a price that fit the pocket. You can pay more for a Boss, but you still get the same effect as the Digitech. I got this a few days ago. I spent a few hours playing with the presets and phrase looper, followed by a day of testing it through my amp.(Peavey Firebass 700) I was pleased, This product is fantastic. It is worth every penny. Not a single thing wrong with it!, everything you'll ever need and a whole lot more, Built like a tank.

Built like a tank!

By The Old Bass Dude

from New York Area

Comments about DigiTech BP355 Bass Multi-Effects Pedal:

I got this pedal last week after deciding to spice up my sound. The first thing I noticed was how solid (heavy) this thing is.... feels like you could dance on it without an issue. Next came playing with the settings.... I have no idea how many possible combinations can be produced with all these choices but I'm having a ball trying them out..... found it relatively easy to lean the basics on this pedal and have already set a few of my own 'sounds' on it. The big test will be this weekend as it will be at it's first gig Friday night..... BTW: The tuner is a sweet touch too.

my new rig!

Comments about DigiTech BP355 Bass Multi-Effects Pedal:

the only thing i would change is the built in tuner. its a little hard to read sometimes and slow on responding to picking up notes. other than that its 99.9% the best pedal i've ever used.
this thing is awesome. i'm in a cover band that plays all over MD, DC, VA, WVA, and DE every weekend and i usually use 2 EBMM stingray 5's and a SWR Redhead with sennheiser in-ears on stage. i got this bad boy, made a handfull of presets, (my favorite is the B-15 head and Ampeg 810 cab) with some compression and a noisegate and i dont even bring my Redhead out anymore. i go direct to the board with this pedal now and use my In-ears. my soundguy absolutely loves it. said this little fella sounds great out front. all the effects, overdrives, reverbs, ect are very true sounding. im still blown away that this pedal has replaced my expensive Redhead.
BUILT LIKE A ARMORED TANK
i cant believe it only costs as little as it does.

Digitech BP355 bass Pedal

Comments about DigiTech BP355 Bass Multi-Effects Pedal:

Really happy with the pedal. If you're looking for a pedal that functions well with a big bang for the buck, you cant go wrong with this one.
Plenty of classic cab simulations, nice sounds library, built in looper
Pretty good build quality with nice pedal action.
For the features included, it cant be beat. The inclusion of the Cubase software is nice.

Perfect for a simple bass player

Comments about DigiTech BP355 Bass Multi-Effects Pedal:

It really is a cool effects processor. I wanted something simple so I suppose maybe I went a little over the top. But compared to the boss pedals this is priced pretty darn low. There more sounds than I'll EVER need. Comes with recording software and an ac adapter. I like the looper too. I'm sure there's a lot I don't know about it yet but so far so good.

Heard this in store.One word...Amazing! Why run pedals when you can get it all in one tiny box with XLR outs. Access additional tones through the expression pedal. This thing sounds hi-fi and very studio! Modeling is here to stay!

Comments about DigiTech BP355 Bass Multi-Effects Pedal:

Well built item that has some very good sounds. All in one digital pedals never sound quite as good as analogue pedals but this one is very good for the money. The manual is not easy to understand. I spent a few hours getting very frustrated because I couldn't get out of an edit program till I realized which buttons I needed to press to get out of it. I couldn't find it in the manual and had to try every configuration to escape. Things like that cause me to dislike equipment and stop using it but I have continued to try things and now I have a good handle on how to get it to do what I want. The effects are very good and so are the amps. The cable could be longer but no biggie. Headphone output is a bit low regardless of which phones I use but this is something I can deal with. Overall excellent value for money and this will come in very handy for different projects.

    Comments about DigiTech BP355 Bass Multi-Effects Pedal:

    Much better sound then the Zoom I have been using. I play in a church worship team with no amps allowed on stage. The headphone seemed a little weak when the DI line out is used ( I like to hear myself louder then others do). I turned up the volume on processer and it helped. I am 67 and not tech savy, the manual seemed confusing on first reading away from processer, but put them together it was pretty easy to figure out. Great for silent practice.
    Chord on transformer looks heavy enough to hold up and not have the insulation split like my Zoom did. Well built case. Big pedals are nice.

    Comments about DigiTech BP355 Bass Multi-Effects Pedal:

    The good and bad are related - you get so many functions but that makes it complicated to use and the manual is good but could be better. The factory setting ##'s appear the same as the user-setting numbers so can be confusing. Overall a great package of effects including a limited drum machine and short looper, definitely worth the $$$ especially considering there isn't much out there for bass players (note that there are MANY guitar effects on this device, too).

        Comments about DigiTech BP355 Bass Multi-Effects Pedal:

        First the Negative, the pedal is a pain to figure out at first. The 140 presets are actually defined between two 70 Factory sets, and another set of factory sets that are editable. Labeled E and F that shows on the display as you switch between. This is first gripe as the Factory settings are indeed editable, but do not save after the change. So at first going and fine tuning a nice tone I like only to find I lost it right after I switched do a different effect was very frustrating.

        The Pedal is also in my opinion to small. the switch buttons for presets are very close together on if you have boots or even average size feet, you can either engage the bypass mode, or even worse go into stomp mode and completely ruin whatever you where trying to do.

        Now the good stuff.

        For the multi-effect part of the pedal you do get a tone of options, and I mean a Ton. FX, Distortion EQ Noise Gate, Compression Wah's, Delay Amp Modeling and what are almost overwhelming, the sound you can get is very very open.

        The Drum Machine is also pretty decent, has a several different beats in different sigs, as well as the metronome which has all the common time sigs, though fortunately you can not set your own custom Time Sig.

        The looper is also a nice thing to play with that is probably one of the nicer things on the pedal once you figure it out.

        Over all it's well worth the price tag. Just try not to wear boots if your playing at a gig.

        Not as good as the real thing. This pedal is fun and has amazing array of fx and tools. The sound is "digital" and noticeable on reverb and the amp modeling. The pedals are close together so if you have big feet it takes a little finesse to click em on the fly. Well made and really fun pedal! I find my bass sounds better on bypass than through the pedal. Love the effects and looper.
