I bought the RP355 from Guitar Center. There are a lot of good points to the 355 and a few bad. One of the greatest features is its connectivity. With this box you don't need an amp. You can connect your 2 XLR, (left & right,) connections straight to your mixer. Due to the Amp modeling, the sound out of a PA will be as if you miked up a (line6, Marshal,whatever) amp. Yes the amp models are that good. To top it off you get stereo effects if you split the channels, (2 XLR from the 355), left and right on the mixing board. To top it off if you want a personal monitor you can use ear plugs or buds driven off the 355 box (at the same time). You can also use the TRS 1/4inch jack and a small combo for an extra monitor on stage. Before you even get on stage you can use the headphone option for personal warm-up or practice session that will not bother others (with earphones they can't bother you.) The second thing the 355 does well is acoustic simulation. (FOR REAL!) I was playing around and plugged in my acoustic guitar . AWESOME! a little chorus and tape delay with dreadnought settings... If you like the electric acoustic, try the acoustic with acoustic settings. Can't say enough. I have settings 1-10 programed as acoustic settings. All the effects are great with the exception of the pitch effects. The Whammy stinks and sounds digital. Oh-well.. not enough of a negative to not own this pedal. Best pedal I ever had!!!

I am amazed at the number of parameters that this device offers. Seemingly an infinite number of combinations. It's really a complex computer, and I'd have to be a programmer or an audio engineer to take full advantage of its potential. The construction is solid, and the foot switches are quiet and responsive. However, I was very disappointed by the 70 factory presets that came with the unit. At least 50 of them are just variations of "fuzz". (Not just dirty overdrive or distortion, but extreme ripsaw fuzz.) Many of the presets are practically identical in sound, although using different parameter combinations. And almost a dozen of them have echo delay in them, which makes them of no value to me. (In my 45 years of playing guitar, I don't recall hearing any prominent performing or recording guitarist using echo.) Finally, some of the presets are just plain useless, like the "swell" (reverse decay), the 3rd harmony, the octave-up whammy, or the one that sounds like a ring modulator. I would much preferred if the presets were a variety of actual sounds used by famous guitar players/groups/songs. It would also have been great if there were presets for 12-string, mandolin, or even banjo. I was able to modify some of the presets to get certain sounds I wanted, like a James Brown funk, or a Duane Eddy twang, but it took me hours of experimentation. I suppose that if you are trying to create "your own" never-heard-before sound, this device is perfect. But for a player like me, who does Top 40 dance music and musical theater, it lacks most of what I need out of the box. All in all, a good device, worth the money, but it needs a lot of time-consuming after-purchase customization.

Long learning curve but very dependable and very versatile. Excellent value for the price.

By Robin

from Evansville, IN

Comments about Digitech RP355 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

I've been using my RP355 in live settings for over two years at least once per week. I had my favorite pre-set dialed in and saved and didn't use use many others until I started playing with the programming software through my laptop. The software opened up tons of options and made the unit very useful for multiple guitar amp combinations. Now I have preset 1-10 set for one guitar/amp combination, preset 11-20 for another guitar/amp combo, etc... I even use a magnetic pickup in an acoustic guitar played through the RP355 to an Fender Champ electric guitar amp when I need to move quickly from acoustic to electric tones inside a single song. The expression pedal is programmable as a volume pedal, whammy, or increase/decrease effects for each preset. When I want to stay on one pre-set I can go into stomp mode and the stomp buttons can be used to turn on/off distortion, effects, delay. The built in drum machine is excellent for practice instead of using a metronome. Some helpful improvements to the pedal would be a remote footswitch to start and stop the drums and better tracking on the whammy effects. You get some strange tones trying to play chords with the drop tune effect. It's great for practice with the headset option, aux in. The USB can be used for recording or playing jam tracks into the unit for practice. Excellent pedal for the price. With a little time programing this unit will take the place of multiple analog stomp boxes.

Could be ok... if you have the rest of your life

By Lynn

from Lancaster PA

Comments about Digitech RP355 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

The pedal was near impossible to use. There's no way you can get the "ideal" effect without spending hours of your time trying to figure out all the pathetic settings. The presets are very basic and over half of them are impractical. The stompboxes are really cool if you can figure them out. The best part of the pedal was the tuner. Otherwise everything else just didn't meet Digitech's normal expectations. I love digitech, don't get me wrong, but this model pedal took to many shortcuts. Nice try digitech.

The right shoes...

By Matthew Cirillo

from Lilburn, GA

Comments about Digitech RP355 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

Aside from my 2 issues, this unit is simply amazing in sound quality, range of effects and dialing in exactly what you want sound-wise. With so many layers, you need to start with the amp models (or turn off) and then the type/amount of drive and build your tone from there. But you will find tons of awesome presets that you can easily tweak to your liking and save. Issue 1 is although the Wah on/off sensitivity is adjustable, I can't easily control the wah without accidentally turning it off (back to volume pedal)-haven't found sweet spot. Issue 2 is that with the right shoes, the 2-button clicking (switching from efx mode to preset mode, or tuner or bypass) works easily. With the wrong shoes, or barefoot, I must very deliberately click both footpedals simultaneously, detracting from my playing.

What you would expect from DigiTech

By John Wattenbarger

from Lewes DE

Comments about Digitech RP355 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

For the price and what it delivers, it's outstanding, offering me hours of cool expression and creativity. I don't even use my MB tube amp, I just run this through my small mixer to headphones or out of my small powered amp (like a Bose L1), since you really do retrieve great amps and effects. -- I don't like the envelope filter or Wah expression. But you can buy the Cry Baby later or other effects, otherwise all other effects are excellent.

It'll get the job done if you know it well, and can spare the time.

By Bryant Seavey

from Ontario, Ca

Comments about Digitech RP355 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

I've owned this pedal for about 3 years now. I've learned a lot about it since I bought it to hopefully save some money on guitar effects. I've spent a fair share of time perfecting each tone. As a seasoned player, I tend to be very picky about what I want to hear. Surprisingly enough, this pedal actually has the capability of sounding exactly like a stompbox with the correct settings. I've gotten pretty good sounds out of it for the money saved. There are also a couple of things that are kind of a waste. Pros: Good tones with some work recording capability is very useful and sounds great USB connection Amp/Mixer switches make all the difference Various options for connectivity/ useful for multiple instruments Very reliable if taken care of Cons: Fragile Tricky power supply/ no option for battery usage Complicated interface Time consuming Multiple effects/features I've deemed useless -amp/cabinet modeling -pickup and acoustic simulators -looper -expression pedal (Only useful for volume control) -chromatic tuner

Exceeded my expectation

By MINH PHAM

from Boynton Beach, FL

Comments about Digitech RP355 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

I read many good reviews about this unit before purchasing, and I'm not disappointed. I was looking for something within this price range that has decent sound, with foot pedal, that can be interfaced with a computer for recording via USB. All these things, the RP355 does well. I've only owned the unit for a few weeks, so cannot speak to the long term reliability, but it looks solid enough. For the duration that I own this thing, there has been no glitches; everything function the way that is described in the manual. Ease of use: It took me just a few minutes to glance over the PDF manual to get familiar with the capabilities and controls. What I found confusing was that the manual didn't do a good job in describing that there are 70 factory presets, with another user preset, which, are exact duplicate of the factory presets initially. So as I'm cycling through presets, it seems like there are only 70 presets. It's not until I started to change some of those presets and save them did I realized that there are 140 presets in all. The factory presets briefly flash an "F" when you're cycling through them. Quality of sound: The factory presets tend to please multiple musical tastes, therefore, I only find a few that were to my liking. But after Googling for free RP355 patches, I found quite a few that sound great. Of course, you can always change the presets to your exact liking - The possibilities are limitless; especially with the X-edit program that allows you to modify and save these patches at the comfort of your keyboards and screen; it's a great substitute for bending down and messing with knobs, buttons, and LED display. Chances are, if you're willing to spend the time experimenting, you'll find the exact sound that you really like with this unit. Other benefits: This single unit replaces multiple stomp boxes that I otherwise would have to purchase. This saves money and space. I got rid of my wah-wah pedal and a couple of other stomp boxes. It's just cleaner for me. I probably would give this a 4 stars if I had to pay the full advertised price, but I found a cheaper place on the net, and GC beat it; so I have to give this product a 5 based on my expectations and the price range. Overall, I'm a satisfied customer.

My effects board is going on E-bay.

By Robin Stonestreet

from Evansville, IN

Comments about Digitech RP355 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

This processor is a wonderful tool. I can play my favorite Strat and bounce between acoustic and overdrive tones at the push of a switch. I program may favorite effects and name them for individual songs. The looper is easy to use and was up and running in a few hours of practice. All of this for about the same price as ONE of my effects pedals. The harmonizer allows me to tone the Strat like a twelve string or Bass guitar. The built in drum kits are great for solo performance or when our drummer is out of town. I practice with the metronome and move right to a drum beat with ease. The Tuner allows non standard tuning and isolates the guitar from the sound system. THe amount of equipment I now need to carry is reduced to one guitar, an amp, the Digitek, and a BBE Sonic Stomp. I run the Sonic stomp after the Digitek to clean up the tones. I use only solid state amps to keep the maintenance cost to a minimum and the Digtek makes an inexpensive amp sound like a tube amp with the AMP modeling features.

Over Processed Sound

By Doug Traser

from Oakley, CA

Comments about Digitech RP355 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

I bought the RP 355 as a replacement for a very old and very used RP200 I've had for the last 10 years. I was excited about the new features especially the USB interface. Unfortunately after trying to get a warm sound from the thing, No matter what I try every tone sounds over processed. I returned it and resorted to good old fashion individual peddles on a peddle board to maintain that warmer tone.
