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.

The more experience I gained using the RP55 the less I liked this purchase. It comes pre-programed with what I would call harsh noise effects rather than guitar effects. The micro switches mounted to the circuit board under the push buttons are extremely fragile and wear out in no time. The best thing about the RP55 is the 9v power pack that is optional. I just ordered a Vox to replace it.

Comments about DigiTech RP55 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

I got this through another vender on sale. Musician Friend would of match the price, but I couldn't talk to an operator at the time so I got it elsewhere.

Digital FX aren't always the best, but sometimes they can come in handy. I currently use a 7 band EQ as a signal boost through a Blackstar HT-40 and a noise gate. Both of these are in front of my amp.

I'm not a big fan of most guitar FX, but there are a few I find useful that I could use through the FX loop on my amp like the extra noise gate, compressor/substainer, the extra 3 bands of EQ(though I wish it had a little more), digital delay and amazingly the drum machine. The cab emulation is pretty decent, but I didn't care for the amp modeling. Since I already have a great sounding amp why bother using any? I use it to enhance my amp's sound rather than mask it with a ton of useless and over processed FX.

A few cons.
No AC power adapter.
No USB port for recording which is no problem for me since I use my amp's emulated out into an Lexicon Alpha USB interface. That work much better because most low end digital processors have poor latency time with reording and tend to lag even on decent computer systems.
Not the best construction. No big deal because I'm using this through an FX loop so I'm not using the foot switches to change my sound constantly. I have a couple saved presets that work with both channels of my amps so I can just change it when I do a new song and use in amp's footswitch instead. Hope this makes sense lol. I try to keep my layout simple.

This isn't a product I'd recommend for a musician doing profession recordings nor to gig with, but it's something to do simple recording with, runs very well through an FX loop, very compact, drum machine for practising and writing songs and very affordable for someone that doesn't want to break the bank yet needs a simple FX unit for simple tasks.

          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.
