The DigiTech RP80 is the most versitile, small effects unit I have played to date. For over a year now I have been using this thing almost exclusively for my playing and recording and the variety and quality of the effects is very good. It is easy to use. You can just plug and go. It also comes with the A/C adapter so that you don't have to buy one.It is important that you understand that this unit comes with 2 banks of 40 effects. I think the first and last 40 are identical when delivered (although I started messing with it immediately). The first 40 are customizable. (second 40 are preset) You can set each of the effects, (delay, distortion, chorus, volume, etc.) for each of these presets. I have set the first few as varieties of the same basic sound with a single modification and option (like adding wah)...Then a second bank of a few with a different basic sound and a single alteration again. Works great for me.The amp models make a huge difference. The "Boutique" and "Rectifier" amp settings are excellent. The "Black Face" and "Clean Tube" are also good. Start with the amp settings then adjust from there.I play a 61 Telecaster and a late 60's Les Paul and the sounds created by this unit couldn't be more different for the two guitars. Different distortions and amp/speaker combinations REALLY make a huge effect on the sound. My only complaint is the small size of the effect pedal which makes it hard to use when you are in a working environment (but I'm adjusting because I hate to have to have a lot of pieces to deal with).Great tool for the working guitarist or the hobbiest.

Before I start listing what's wrong with the RP 80, I would like to say that overall, for the money this is a great deal. Ok, the RP80 has plenty of preset factory and programable (40) effects. The only problem is that most of them aren't that different. You will never need that many effects anyways. But the problem with this is that out of all the 80 effects there are really no common types of effects that you would normaly find on other amps, such as: crunch, twang, etc. You can of corse create your own effects, it's just really hard to do. On the RP 80 there are about 20 different effects settings, in creating your effects you need to be able to adjust all of these. Doing this is alot like setting an alarm clock, you have 2 buttons that control the selecting of the efects and the other the value of the effect. Setting up effects like this is extremely frustrating and time consuming, espesicialy if you don't know what you are doing. This is not a good product to use in a performance. It's alot easier if you have a proccessor with nobs for hands on use. If you are looking for cheap effects, the RP 80 is definately the way to go, it's just really hard to use. If your looking for something in the same catagory, check out line 6, they have some great pods that have more features, are easier to use, but of course cost a little more.

Great Learning Device, Bad to Use Live

By Nate Riggs

from Tampa, FL

I bought mine about 4-5 years ago and still works. The expression stopped but you can fix it. The effects, delays, reverb, noise gate, and compressor work good and are the only real thing you should expect out of it. The drum kit is great to practice your time. The downfall is that there is no good distortion, only cabinet modeling. Don't be fooled into thinking you can buy a cheap amp and a cheap multi-effect like I did. It sounds bad. Buy this to practice with, use the headphones and the drum kit. Then when you're good, buy a tube amp, some boss pedals and throw the RP80 away. Don't use live unless only using the effects.

RP80 pedal

By eragon13

from Washougal, WA

See all my reviews

This thing rocks! It is like 80 pedals in one! Very sweet!I play a Gibson Les Paul through a VOX AC15 amp, so it is kind of funny that i use this, but it is usefull!!! My ac15 only has one kind of distortion and the reverb isn't very good, so this little thing comes in handy for those two uses! The drum machine is great too! Much better than a metronome!!! So for this price (if you can't afford better gear) than go with this! It won't let you down! (unless of cource you step in it and it breaks- cause it isn't that sturdy...but I have never had any problems with mine falling apart, so it might not be a problem!!!!)

Advanced players beware

By Chris-I--Ca

from Bloomington, IL

This is a good pedal, I bought it from my local music store a few weeks ago and its a fun toy, but I wouldn't recommend it for live use or really nothing more than fun, it's tuner may be useful on stage, but the effects not so much, i would recommend this for beginners only, for more advanced players, i suggest something like the line 6 PODXT live, now that is stage worthy.

Happy it isnt mine

By Quinn Dubya

I barrowed this pedal from a friend in exchange for my Boss metal zone stomp box. I find that this pedal has really really weak distortion, even the higher gain settings really don't cut it for me. It's really hard to tap with the settings on this pedal, as well as play cut and dry licks because of all the fluff on the pedal. I think I should ask for my metal zone back.

I bought this. it was about 2 years ago...its ok for beginners. My tuner on it worked good at first then all of a sudden it just gave me offfff tones and i couldnt use it. The clean models are ok for a cheap pedal such as this. Though...the distortion was way too fake and digital.The effects are a little half-a$$ but there-again- sutible for beginners. It is a sturdy pedal and can stand a heavy foot probly. but unless your a beginner... dont buy this.

Worth the Money!

By Eric-LnWBa

from Clover, SC

Sure , this is no $1000 rack processor but for the money you can't beat! Most of the effects sound really good, and since you have the expression pedal, you can control them a bit more than you can its lesser counterpart, the RP50.Since this is a plastic construction, I wouldn't recommend it for heavy stage use but for home use / studio use / small shows, it seems to fit the bill fine. The expression pedal could probably be a bit stronger, but I notice a bad habit with alot of players is that they lean their whole body weight on the pedal, not just rocking their foot. So far I haven't had any trouble with the pedals. If you're a beginner, or just want a small effects unit to use, I'd recommend this one by far! It's almost as good as the RP200 I own.

Best Effects Pedal I've Played On

By Jonny Appleweed

from Douglasville, Georgia

I got this pedal about a week ago from a friend. The only complaint I had about it was the wah was broken, but thats easily fixed. The effects are awesome on this. I play in a stoner rock band and I use atleast 70 of the 80 effects on this pedal in my songs. I would reccomend this pedal to anybody in my style of music.

Nice pedal, but keep a screwdriver handy

By aardvarkD

from El Paso, TX

This is the second pedal I've owned (the other being a Digitech PDS-1700 chorus/flanger). I play a Schecter C1 through this box into a Marshall MG10CD. I have no experience with the amps the RP80 claims to model, so I don't know if they're accurate, but they sound great through my little Marshall amp. The effects sound great to me as well -- the flanger and chorus sound better than the PDS-1700, though they aren't as flexible. It's reasonably easy to edit presets. Only problem I had is that after a couple of weeks the expression pedal got so loose that it wouldn't stay in position. Tightening the hinge screw fixed that problem in ten seconds. For 80 bucks this is a fantastic deal.

good effects

By srkoactke

from charlotte

the effects are great on this pedal for the price. Iv tryed the expensive boss multi effects pedals and the rp80a is just as good. The only thing that sucks about it is the distortion, and the tone isent the best. overall this pedal sounds good and is cheap.
