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.

I recently bought this pedal and it's a perfect tool for a small garage band and/or just using it to jam!! I recommend this pedal for the beginner guitarist. All though it has a few flaws it could be better. I really recommend this pedal!
I bought this pedal during this summer just so I could have all the effects in one. I would have to say the distortion on this is bad and really buzzy. All the distortion settings sound the same. As far as acoustic sound this pedal is fairly good. My favorite is number 16. I play in the band at my church and that is what I use for the slower songs. I usually use number 2 for distortion on the faster songs.
You do get a lot for you money with this pedal, that was the one feature I did like because you get so many effects for a low price. But ofcourse there is a catch. The effect quality is very low. Some of the effects such as the flanger or delays and such are decent but the amp models and tones are horrible. The worst part of the pedal is all the noise you get from it. You get tons of Feedback even when it is bypassed.
ive had this pedal for three years and still haven't been able to find a good sound. there are many that come close though. this was my first pedal and at first i thought it was great, but as i moved foreword the pedal kept holding me back. it is all a bit too mechanic sounding for me. i cannot get a nice smooth distortion out of it or a good wah sound. also never use onstage. too hard to switch effects. like i said,good for beginners.
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.
It's not made of metal, so it is probably going to break under heavy wear. You have to cycle the pedals to go the setting you want (you can't dial up a particular setting). Editing the settings is a little cumbersome compared to some of the higher priced models. It is not something you would want to use on stage and I am sure a professional would not want it. But, with all that said, this little thing sounds great and the price is too! If you are a beginner and just want something that will get you past a basic amp / guitar sound combo and give you a nice set of drum beats to practice to and don't have money falling out of your pockets, this is the ticket.
After 2 returns for the zoom 606 it was time to try a new pedal with solid connectivity. I see that the phono jacks are better constructed. I havent set up my pre-sets yet, just got it last night. Doing a live show tonight and gonna use it onstage. It seems to have all of the features of the Zoom 606. The same company that owns Digitech is the same one that owns Crown amps, so , that should almost speak for itself.
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.
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.
I purchased this product a few years ago when i first started playing guitar. Even though i had just begun playing guitar, i knew that the sound quality was baaaad on this. Even if your a beginner, you can tell the distortion...if you can even call it that, is very fake and very digital. The expression pedal will die on you eventually, but its very easy to recallibrate and the problem seemed to have gone away for now. This pedal does however have some good features. The clean sound is decent...not great, but decent. The effects were suprising good. The flanger and phaser are excellent. The tuner is by far the best tuner i have used. And i also found that this pedal is great for vocal recordings. It really enhances your sound and has many usefull features that sound cool with your voice...just not so much with your guitar. So if your looking for a processor, i do NOT reccomend this. But, its fairly decent for the price. Just think about what your recieving based on how much you pay.
