400% more horsepower.

No wonder the Digitech RP250 sounds so good. You're looking at the one of the world's most advanced audio processors, the "engine" that gives this generation of RP modeling pedals so much more raw impact and subtle detail. Other manufacturers use general-purpose, off-the-shelf chips. But creating the best guitar tone requires a 100% specialized, optimized processor. Being total audio processing fanatics, "Chip Wizard" engineers at DigiTech set out to create a super-processor specifically designed to power a whole new generation of effects and models. The design team worked for over 2 years, literally re-defining audio signal processing at the chip level. Then "Tone Guru" engineers”fresh from production modeling triumphs like the Jimi Hendrix Experience Artist Series pedal”set to work taking advantage of all this raw processing power. When you hear what AudioDNA2 does for the tone of the DigiTech RP250 you'll agree it was all worth it.

The new DigiTech RP250 is awesome. The first thing you'll notice is the sleek, intuitive design. All the new RP series multi-effects processors are powered by DigiTech's brand new, proprietary DNA2 chip, which is 5 times more powerful than it's predecessor. And it's very easy to hear the difference. The RP250 provides the purest tones that I've heard in any multi-effects processor to date. The list of effects and amp/cab models is impressive, featuring both vintage and modern effects/amps/cabs. With so many sounds to choose from, the RP250 really lets you unleash your creativity in creating custom tones. You can really squeeze any kind of tone out of this thing that you want. The RP250 features amp/mixer stereo outputs. With the speaker compensation switch on the back, it sounds great plugged into an amp or directly into a mixer. It also has a stereo headphone output, which I love because I'm in college, so I can play through headphones without bothering my roommates, and most importantly, without losing any tone since I can use the amp/cab models to simulate playing through an amp. One of my favorite features of the RP250 is that you can assign ANY parameter to the expression pedal so that you can change parameter values as you play. This allows you to come up with some very creative sounds. The min/max parameter value range of the expression pedal can be customized as well in order to easily use the pedal within a precise range of values. The user interface is very intuitive with a very small learning curve. You can become totally familiar with this thing in 10 minutes. Another feature that makes the RP250 a real value is that you can record with it straight out of the box (if you have recording software; I use Cubase to record from the RP250 and it works great - you can download the drivers from DigiTech's website). It has USB in/out which allows you to record at 44.1 kHz at both 16/24 bit depth. You can also stream music to the RP250 from you computer via USB to jam along with (it also has an external 1/8" jack that you can use to hook up to an iPod/CD player to jam along with as well). Other cool features include a built-in tuner, bypass, 60 awesome factory presets with an additional 60 user preset slots, a drum machine with 60 patterns and 5 metronomes (with user-changeable tempo), and a bright 6 character display for easy navigation through the different effects. With X-Edit software, you can customize presets from your computer, as well as save presets to your computer (either individually or all 60 user presets at once) so that you never lose a custom preset. So essentially you can have a library of hundreds of presets on your computer, with 60 loaded onto the RP250 at any given time. DigiTech also has a thriving online community for it's products so that you can swap presets with other RP users. With the new DNA2 chip, in terms of tone and sound quality, the RP250 easily competes with the current top-of-the-line multi-effects processors (in fact it dominates in my opinion). And for the price, it's a total bargain considering all the features that are packed into this box. For me, this is one of those cool toys that you wonder how you ever lived without before you had it.

I have been using the RP200A for over 2 years now.When I first read about the new RP250, I figured it may be time to upgrade. I was wrong. Most of the presets on the 250 are useless, having to change so many of them wasn't appealing. Also, the effects library isn't that diverse. The wahsounds are thin, distortions too heavy. On the digitech website they list the 250 as having the effect "Synthtalk". It doesn't, only the 350 does.My 200A has that effect, and much better presets, including the artist presets. I play every week,soI need more diversity-the RP200A does that.

Producing the sound you want with ease!!

By Army_In_Between General: Fabio

from Warner Robins, GA

About two years after I started playing a friend of mine (who was also a decent guitarist) gave the Digitech to me. I love it because it allows you to make your own effects by simple tweaks of a knob and put them in any scroll slot you want. I do alot of distortion/clean switches, and it allowed me to switch from Thrash to Pink Floyd-like clean reverbed sound with the stomp of 1 button. The only thing is the wah pedal is very susceptable to turning off in the middle of the solo because its wah/volume button is fairly sensative. The built in drum machine (also tweakable) helped me write when the band wasnt around too, so I would have to say this is one of the best products a beginner/intermediate guitarist could possibly want.

I bought this product from a friend that owns a music store. I was all set on buying a boss me-20, and he talked me out of it fast after I played around with it in the store for a little bit.This has all the effects you will ever need. Some effects cannot be used at the same time as other effects though, like you can't use the whammy with a phaser. But this pedal has all the effects that the ME-20 had, plus all of the other effects that I was gonna get in other pedals later! This saved me a ton of money!It's very easy to use, and I don't have any complaints except that I wish that I could pick through the effects the way I like, but thats what single pedals are for.Overall, I would recommend this to anyone that wants a good sound and tone. This covers all genres of music, and has all of the effects you will ever need at a price that can't be beat. Its great for people on a budget.


Very Nice Pedal

By newjacksonlover

from Jacksonville, Ohio

See all my reviews

My friend bought this pedal. The wah feature stopped working on it, but they let him keep both when he got the replacement. Unfortunately, the wah stopped working on the second one as well. Being the nice guy that he is, he gave me one of these. Besides the wah crapping out, it's a great pedal. I play thrash metal and this pedal is great for my aggressive taste. It's worth more than the price. If you want a digital pedal, this is the one for you.


Great Deal

By EatAPeach

from Georgia

This pedal is deffinitely bang for your buck. Boasting a clean, user-friendly interface inside a sturdy, well-built case, this pedal will deffinitely hold up on the road or in your room! The preset effects are sufficient, however, extremely easy to tweak to any desired sound. I've had this pedal for quite some time now and havn't had the slightest of problems. Overall, an easy-to-use, great-sounding, and economic multi-effects pedal.


The RP250

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This pedal is the best I have ever had. If you are someone who is looking for any sound under the sun this is a great pedal. It has everything, it even has models for what stompbox you want it to be like, what amp model. Its ridiculous! Its like having thousands of dollars of equipment in a little pedal... not only that but if you turn the patch all the way up on this pedal, it can make a 15 watt amp sound like a 75 watt amp in no time. So its good for being loud as well. Overall the only thing I find wrong with it is that it is kinda tough to get the hang of when you first get it. But that isn't much of a problem there.


Digitech RP250

By sgmonger13

from Connecticut

See all my reviews

Anyways, I play a style of music that it is frowned upon to use anything digital. So yes, I have carried my old faithful 70's DM Spectra around with me to every gig, along with a small arsenal of pedals. But the problem with that amp and the pedals was that I just could not get the tone I was looking for, and I would be stomping on footswitches and stompboxes for the whole show. I picked this thing up expecting it to replace my pedalboards. Nope, not after hearing the amp now run my Spectra clean at a balanced EQ setting, and run a '68 Marshall Plexi model through it, at a variety of different volum levels for my main sound. But yes, I can switch to any sound i want throughout the show since Ive programmed custom settings into this little savior. The combination of the Digitechs models and the tubes in my DM just equals amazingness. People are always amazed when I tell them that I use a Digitech RP250 as part of my main setup. It just sounds like the amp, my friends. BUY THIS RP250!!


This processor is a cut above!

By iptaytiger

from Va

My wife bought the RP250 for me for xmas and let me tell you this piece of equipment will replace every pedal you own! When you install the x-edit program it only gets better! Wow! It's Pandoras box! This thing is like a Rocket waiting to be launched. 60 presets from the factory and X-Edit will let you adjust 60 more setting's,name them and you can even download other user patches that they have designed. Buy this rocket and unleash it!


Great pedal for the ca$h

By RPGoof

from Michigan

See all my reviews

This pedal can give you a great sound for literally any genre. Its got crushing distortion for heavy metal riffs, but still sounds great with just a touch of gain and some light blues riffs. This pedal is just so versatile that you can't get so many great sounding options out of anything else in this price range. DigiTech took the next step and added the USB capabilities for computer recording, which I think is the best feature yet. If you want a pedal with lots of effects and a ton of different sounds, get the RP250. It's not the same as a line of professional amps and guitars, but it definitely gives a great sound.


Wide range of quality sounds!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This pedal is amazing. I got and I was dumbfounded by the number of effects it had. The whammy and wah features are impressive, and there are tons of distortions. Also, you get the basic effects from other pedals. (chorus, flanger, phaser, etc.) this will make you sound so much better, and you won't have to get another pedal for a long, long time.


Favorite New Toy!!

By Uriah

from North Adams, MA

This is quite possibly the single greatest guitar product I have ever bought. I have been playing for 5 years and thought it was time to get a pedal. So I purchased a weeping demon. didnt like it returned it and bought this instead gotta say you definitly get yor moneys worth. I would suggest the RP250 to new and professinal guitars player alike.


A Great Sounding BEAST

By A. Blocher

from Ohio

This is a great multi-effects processor that I didn't expect the world from, but it gives a TON of cool features and offers a cool set of drum beats to play to which was quite easy to edit and tweak. The whole unit is easy to edit and change things like you want it. The only thing I had a problem with is that you don't want to get too crazy on the pedal because if you press down on it hard enough it turns on Wah which sounds bad when you are already on Whammy. I wish the price could've been maybe a tad lower, but I'm satisfied.


Great pedal for a good price

By Metal is awesome

from Redmond, OR

This pedal he's been awesome to me. It has tons of effects so that I find exactly what I want. The expression pedal works great for just about everything. The wah works great. I highly recommend this pedal for anyone who wants a good pedal for a good price!


simple and amazing

By Saxman449

from Hickory, NC

You will be simply amazed by the effects and simple interface. I have had this unit for over a year now and I still find new ideas using this. It is built with solid construction. These aren't effects that are useless. The effects are perfectly designed. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a multi-effects pedal. Best processor for the price period.


The RP-250 sounds great

By QAMacKOv5

from Estill Springs, TN

I have had the RP-250 for about 3 weeks now. It is so versatile. I guess one of the biggest things I like is the use of brands name amp, cabinets, and effect models. It is easier to remember how a 59 Bassman sounds different from a Marshall Plexi, rather than rock amp1 or rock amp 2.The second feature I like is the ability to create your own presets and upload them through the USB connector to your computer or the digitech web site or you can download some that are already out there and tweak them however you want.I have even run my mic through the pedal for the amazing reverb.This unit also does wonders for an acoustic/electric piezo pickup output.The pedal and gray body is made of metal.It sounds great in headphones and to record.

I am very pleased with my RP250. I haven't had it for very long but I'm already making quite a few new effects. It is very easy to use. For the price you can't get anything close to this. I really recommend this for anyone. It's not the greatest for doing live shows but it is so much fun just to mess around with it.


Freakin Great

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I just got this for Christmas and I absolutely love it. The only thing i dont like about it is you cant switch between presets quickly, you have to scroll down. But once you factor in the price it doesnt really matter. I would definetely recomend it for anyone who plays.


Wow $!$!

By Henk Dawson

from Bellevue, WA

My main effects unit is a GNX4 - the top of the line Digitech Guitar. The RP250 sounds as good or better. It doesn't have as many features as the GNX4 but it's much smaller - I wanted something more portable and I got it AND I don't have to compromize with the sound quality.


Great Value!

By Dazach91

from Milwaukee

For the price this is the best effects pedal period. I've tried several others and expectations were low but WOW was I pleasantly surprised. I don't know how useful or rugged it would be for a working musician, but for a hobbyist that mostly plays in my basement with a few friends, I think it's great. One of my friends comes over just to play with it, loves it too.



By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

So this has alot of different effects, and they are all decent, but the quality just isn't great. The distortions are terrible, the wah has no midrange, etc. In addition, all of these effects sound fake and constrained.
