The DigiTech BP355 bass multi-effects pedal gives bassists more sounds, effects, flexibility, and control whether you're practicing alone, rehearsing, recording, or gigging. Most bass players don't ask for much in the way of effects, but DigiTech has gone to great lengths to ensure that they will find everything they're looking for and more in the new BP355.
Powered by the AudioDNA2 processor, the BP355 features advanced modeling of 20 amps, 17 different cabinets, and more than 70 different effects. Although the durable die-cast metal chassis of the BP355 is made for the stage, it's the perfect tool for virtually every bass player to perfect their playing. The BP355 has an additional input for your MP3 player, 60 different CD-quality drum patterns, and a 20-second looper players can use to jam, practice, or play along with. It also has a built-in tuner and expression pedal and includes the power supply.
Using the USB port on the BP355, bass players can stream audio to their computer and customize their presets. There are 70 pre-programmed factory presets with 70 more user preset spaces available.

I picked up the BP-90 in store and loved it, but an extra influx of money led me to return it and order this beast. I waited rather impatiently until arrival, and tore it out of the box as soon as it hit my home. This thing is POWERFUL! You have so many options for customizing your sound, and high enough sample quality, that I don't see a reason to use individual pedals. First of all, I should start with a warning: this pedal will lead you to hours of fine-tuning your sound. While a simple effects chain is easy to create, the versatility and sheer number of customization options inevitably drive me to micro-tune everything. The distortion and effects settings are amazing. All are distinctive and highly editable. That, in and of itself, justifies the price tag for me. Adding the amp stacks, and the ability to switch between two different stacks (with different equalizer settings) with the press of a button within the same setup, simply sweetens the pot. Editing settings from the pedal is easy and intuitive, and the software is powerful. Unlike my previous multi-effects unit (a Vox) this one doesn't require keeping the manual handy for every edit. The XLR ports are also handy for recording or a direct-out for live shows, and the ability to output in stereo via 1/4" or XLR is another nice perk. No tool is ever perfect, but my complaints on this are very minimal: the software could be a little more intuitive and there are settings that cannot be edited directly from the pedal (such as the range of your treble equalizer band), making the software necessary. These complaints are well-balanced by the myriad perks, and overall it's a high-quality piece that sounds great, feels great, and just generally IS great. I would recommend this to any bassist wanting a little more versatility in his/her kit.
I'm fairly picky about gear, but I really love this multi-effects bass pedal from Digitech. If you can read instructions and you have 15 minutes to spare, then you can easily learn how to tweak this thing to your liking. Some of the presets are pretty good and some are awful. The key to getting just the sounds that you want is to dial in a couple of vital things: amplifier / cabinet setting and EQ. The amplifier / cabinet selections make big differences in the sound. Some of them overdrive very easily when you dig in to the strings and are great for rock and metal. Others are quite clean and make great choices for jazz, blues, etc. As far as the EQ goes, I'm telling you right now that many of the presets need a serious boost in the bass. Some of them had the eq bass setting defaulted between 2-4 on a (-10)--0--(+10) scale. I found a value of 7-8 on the bass EQ to be sufficient for most of these presets that needed fixing. This kept the bottom end from vanishing, especially when using some of the distortion/overdrive presets. The effects themselves can use a tweaking also sometimes like the amount of gain in a distortion effect or the rate of a flanger effect. My favorite things about this pedal? Distortion effects, delay effects, flanger effects, funky envelope filter effects, decent quality drum tracks, looper, tuner, expression pedal, very solid construction, the price and how cool is it that you can plug in the headphones and play without running your bass through an amp.
My dad got this pedal to use at church, and it sounds AWESOME. I have messed with it a bit, and have gone through all the settings, and I think its great for anyone who wants to plug in and play, or who wants to sit and mess with different effects dialing in their sound. It looks cool, feels good, and is compact enough to fit in a backpack or gigbag.
I bought it to use as a practice/headphone amp. I can plug my IPOD in, put headphones on and practice for hours. That alone is worth the price to me. Add the fact it's a looper, drum machine and has some good effects; it's a great value. I was never that much into effects on bass but I have to say some of them are fun. My favorite pre sets are R N B, and the Flanger Delay. Also noteworthy are "Geddy", "Flea", "Tool" and "Rage". I was a little disappointed in "Jaco" who is my hero. It's a bit muddy. Any way, you can get some good effects that help you cut thru the mix better with a little bit of better tone. I would recommend to not mess with the volume and mix controls on the unit, keep some headroom on your amp and work your volume from your bass as each effect has different volume levels, and you'll be adjusting and readjusting every time you change a setting. I also find they get a little less clear when you mess with the volume, gain and mix on the unit. They're pre set so leave them alone and use your basses volume to tweak. In my opinion, overall there's enough there to keep it very useful and very interesting. It's worth the reasonable price tag. Check it out and enjoy.
I had heard so much about how great this pedal was and sounded. I bought it, took it home, read the manual, played through the presets, listened to the effects, used the looper, drum machine, shut it off, put it back in the box, and returned it the next day for a refund. This pedal is not for the "plug and play" bass player, it is for someone with a LOT of TIME on their hands to FIND, TWEAK, SAVE and USE the sounds in it. KEEP IT SIMPLE, MAKE IT EASY TO USE, AND PUT IN USEFUL SOUNDS!!! Every patch was like going from one sound into the next. They just got worse as I went through each unuseable sound. Digitech has never been a favorite for effects. If you want to spend HOURS setting this thing up, go for it. If you're looking for a "plug and play effects pedal", THIS IS NOT FOR YOU.
The Digitech BP355 is truly amazing. The versatility on this unit blows me away. I bought mainly because it had a looper. The looper alone is worth the money. It does give you 20 seconds of looping but you can do multiple overdubs. Neat practice tool. The effects are very good quality. The synth sounds are decent. The drum patterns are another great practice tool. Overall, this is a great unit. Very durable.
