    The RP-55 has the potential to enhance the tonal quality of any knowledgable guitarist. This is especially true when this pedal is used IN STEREO! The output jack delivers true stereo separation when connected to two channels on a mixer (panned left and right) or two amps. You've got to know what settings favor your particular amp and guitar(s) too. Also, make sure each individual preset level and the master volume level are properly balanced. You don't want any excessive output differences between presets. Compare your amp's dry signal level (pedal bypassed) with the level of the pedal when it is turned on. Your presets should NOT be too much louder than your amp. Pickups a little noisy? Set the noise gate to G3 and don't go too heavy on the compression. Lastly, you don't have to use one of the amp models for every preset. Try using the pedal's effects with the amp modeling off. That way you can hear the effects with the natural sound of your amp. Once you've got about ten good presets dialed in, this pedal can be trusted at every gig.

    I got this box a few years ago as my first venture into modelling guitar effects. I liked it for a while, but the thing itself kept breaking down. I would have to open it and reconnect things, or rebend the output jacks to fit. It has a nice selection of effects, but the range of the output kind of sounds like you are playing through a cardboard speaker. This is more evident in higher end equipment. As a practice gadget for quick all-around sounds, for the price I doubt you could beat this. But if you want better quality sound, pick a type of pedal and buy one for the same price and the quality will be ten-fold.

      Comments about DigiTech RP55 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

      I have had this model for 3 years and used daily. Take care of it and it will last. If you have an amp that has no rock and roll soul, this processor will give it what you need. You'll just have to find the sound you're looking for in this Pandoras' box. I ran it through an older Create double stack that was in good condition and WHAT a differance. Beware,..... it does boost your power and gives you more head room. If your equipment can't handle it, dial down about 2/3's or half volume. I've since bought other Digitech products. The price is right, most music stores can't match MF....

          Good unit with very usable factory patches. The lack of on/off switch is a hassle, requiring the unit to be unplugged when not in use. Built-in drum machine makes a sweet practice tool.

              I bought this for my son and it's great. Excellent FX, nice variety. Very easy to custom program your own sounds. We set up about a dozen custom settings, which was real easy, and they sound great. An excellent multi FX pedal, great price. Highly recommend to anyone.

                  Comments about DigiTech RP55 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

                  The chorus and flanger is good. The spring reverb is awesome. The amp models are pretty good also. If you like lots of distortion, this will suite your needs. If you play totally clean, this will also suite your needs. It's pretty versatile.
                  Plenty of effects. I personally do not know a player that would use all 8 at once. The single coil option sounds true and real. There are lots of tones this thing can generate.
                  The buttons on my RP50 fell off after 10 years. This one looks like it's built the same. Other then that, these are USA made.
                  At this price...it's a bargain.
