I've used almost every device in the Digitech RP series over the last 10 years. First things first: this device models amplifiers. For best results, don't plug the output from this box into a guitar amp, which is like running the output from one guitar amp into another; use a keyboard amp, a powered PA speaker, or a PA. You want an amp that will take the RP's output and make it louder, period, NOT an amp that will add its own color on top of whatever the RP is doing. The advantage of this approach is that you can take the RP anywhere, plug it into a PA, and get EXACTLY the sound you expect. For players who travel on airplanes, this is as close to perfection as you will find.

In general, the RP355 sounds terrific. Its modulation FX (especially the pitch shifter and whammy), delays, and reverbs are best in class at this price point. I wish it were possible to use more than one modulation effect at a time (for example, pitch shifter + chorus or rotary speaker), and I also wish the FX could be re-ordered in the chain (as can be done on the Zoom G3, for example), but that's about all I miss. What's here produces powerful, complex tones that stand out in a mix and onstage. I haven't carried an amp or a pedal board to a gig in years; I just bring the RP, plug it into the PA, and get to work. And let me tell you, the sound techs on my gigs just LOVE this box. It makes their job very, very easy.

The ideal way to use this device in performance is to set up the tones you plan to use, song by song, side-by-side in the user presets section. It takes time to complete this setup, but when you're done you have a setup that can make enormous changes in your sound instantly with one footpress--something that a chain of single-purpose pedals could never do. If you use a looper in your performances, setting up your tones in this way makes it easy to build huge loops with complementary sounds.

There's a lot of great gear out there, and I would never claim that this device is the only way to get a great sound onstage and in studio. But the RP355 offers terrific value for money, sounds great, and works reliably. The delays, reverbs, and pitch FX alone would cost 3-4x the price of this device if purchased separately. Most musicians will find that the RP355 is a very economical tool that instantly adds a lot of power to any rig.

I have owned this pedal for about two years now. It is a pretty awsome pedal for the effects you can get out of it and it does have alot of great amps and presets on it. My biggest thing here is that these are ojnly imitations of something so much greater. I mean sure you can use this to try and get the god like crunch like you can get out of a marshall but after using this pedal and then plugging straight into a Marshall or a fender frontman i think it would be safer to go with those. I mean you can come close but it takes hours of tedious knob turning and i can never get it to sound right at gigs. Im only keeping it for the effects. Oh and after i got a crybaby i quit using the expression pedal because there is just such an obvious difference. Get the real deal. Dont waste Money here. Good maybe for some people but im a blues man and this just cant cut it

      I'm a musician, not a techno scientist. I still have the predecessor, the RP 250, and I have no problem using it, but this overloaded ...thing is simply too absurd and too complicated to use!

      Comments about DigiTech RP355 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

      Its a great multi effect pedal with great sounds. but the problem is that the cry wah effect is bad, ex: you move the expiration pedal up and down in order to create a cry wah or (cry baby) sound but unfortunately nothing changes and the sound still the same.

            I play every weekend and I have used the RP355 for several years now. Our group plays a wide range of styles (funk, rock, blues, country, etc.) I can't say enough good things about this unit. I think the sounds are spot on. Built like a tank. I no longer use an amp, I go direct into the mix. Uses less space on stage in small to med. clubs. I really like the acoustic simulator patch. Just a little adjusting for my own taste on the patches and play, play, play. The display is bright for the patches and tuner. Just give it a try and see for yourself.

                I have had several Digitech pedals, this one being the most advanced.It actually seems easier to navigate than some of the older ones. All the presets are pretty good the looper is awesome. So far it seems to be really good. Also thanks to Musicians Friend who matched another sites sale price no questions asked and shipped it out free. All in all i would for sure reccomend this pedal and Musicians Friend.

                There is alot of effects in this pedal. I went through alot of different sounds when I 1st got it and love the versatility of it. Gonna take some time to get used to it, since it's my 1st effects pedal. I been an acustic guitarist and finally broke down and got a Gibson SG. Gonna have alot of fun with this and recommend it to everyone. Great product!

                  I bought this for my 14 yr old son for his birthday. He has been playing since he was 7 and just loves this pedal. I even like to get on it when he's not playing, it's just a fun piece of gear. I won't rehash the details on it's performance that have already been well documented in the previous reviews, I bought this unit based on those reviews, so thanks to all who took the time to write one.

                  I would also like to give 5 stars to MF customer service. One of the foot switches locked down on the first pedal we received and we could not get it to come up. I got on the phone looking for some advice,instead within 10 min I received a return label, sent it off, and in 10 days had a new pedal.

                  Cool pedal. Excellent Service. Go ahead... enjoy!
