I just got the RP250 a week ago. Looks like it was replaced with the RP255. From what I can see they are the same thing (may a couple extra effects/models in the RP255) - though the RP250 was only $99. Still, for $149 this is a bargain. The effects sound genuine and the amp/cabinet models are very good. Programming interface is a little tough because of all that you have to control through a few buttons and 4 knobs. This is solved with the software you can download from DigiTech. S/W is simple to use and allows you to easily program up new effects chains and models - way easier than trying to do the same across multiple stomp boxes. Took about 4min to get up and running. Follow the instructions on Digitech.com The USB interface allows you to record on your PC (I use Audacity). PC playback goes back through the device into the amp and allows you to record more tracks at the same time - cool for when you want to layer a few tracks. The presets kept me busy for the first 10 hours, but then I had to start tweaking them to get sounds to preference. But they make a great starting point to put together your own sounds. I am absolutely happy I bought this. No matter the level of musician this thing is a great fit - ease of use, variety of effects/models, portability, ease of programming, and recording aid. Hope this helped.

Dont buy this.I bought this to use strictly as a practice toy so I wouldn't have to pack and unpack my gig stuff for practicing at home. While some of the preset sounds are nice, it is overly complex for creating new tones. Also, it completely burned out in six months of practice use. It never left my bedroom, so it took none of the abuse regular gig stuff does. While these things sometimes happen, the company gave me a real hard time about honoring their warranty. GC stepped in and made everything cool, like they always do, but without the help of digitech. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this unit and company.

Best Multi Effects Pedal

By Mitch

from Houston, Texas

I got this a week ago, and so far I love it. It has 60 presets to start you out, and there's room for 60 of your own. This machine is very durable yet still looks cool. When making your own effects, there are endless combinations you can make by using different distortion, amps, wah, flanger, etc. The Wah and Whammy effects are my favorites, but I use every single effect for playing different songs and different styles of music. You can play Metallica to country to Tom Morello. This is a must have for every guitarist, I definitely recommend it.

Digitech RP255 RAWKS!!!

By Digi-Mon!

from Rockville,CA.

Just got my RP255 about 2 weeks ago. I have to say that I am very impressed-The Amps,Effects,and presets on this unit are all very useable. And tweaking the factory settings is pretty easy and fun, once you get the hang of it. The price is a great bargain. And I am looking foward to making some great new recordings with this unit soon. Don't hesitate to buy the RP255, you'll be glad you did!

Amazing pedal

By Patrick

from Massachusetts

I've been playing the bass for years and own the BP50 pedal. I got a guitar several months ago and bought the RP255 for it a few days ago. The pedal is amazing. It sounds fantastic, but the most impressive feature is definitely its compatibility with the computer. The X-Edit software is extremely easy (and fun) to use. The tone library on DigiTech.com is also awesome. Unfortunately I don't know how to connect the pedal to my speakers so I have to edit the effects on my computer then plug the pedal back into my amp and test the effects out there. The owner's manual doesn't help because it only shows a simple diagram. Lastly, the pedal is made of metal, which is great. Overall, amazing pedal, especially for a beginner guitarist like me.

AMAZING!!!!!

By RYGUY

from naperville, IL

Tis little thing has every effect and sound you could want. The looper is amazing and very easy to use too! It is very easy to scroll through song in the middle of a show. You could find the sound you want, edit it a little, and save it with a new name, like perhaps the name of that song it sounds like. Then let's say theres a solo in the song but you need a different sound so you edit the effect next to that one and make it sound like the solo and just name it the (song name) and solo. Its so EASY!!! I would highly reccomend it and also great for the PRICE!!!!!

By ALEKS

Awesome Product

By Bryan Roth

from Burlington, NJ

This Multi Effects Pedal is an awesome product for anyone. I play lead and rythem guitar in a Praise band. We play several types of styles. You can customize your own settings. If you plug this into a computer, you can save your settings on it. Plus, you get more options when you use a computer.

Replacement

By John Paschall

from Champaign Illinois

I had the RP250 but needed a looper so my brother got the 250 and I got the 255 2 weeks ago. I love it once I figure out the Cubase software my troubles will be over.I was strictly an analog guy all of my life. The digital equipment is fresh and exciting and a big learning curve. You should hear this played through my Vox VT series amp.

Great Pedal

By Robert

from Valparaiso, IN

this is a great pedal. the settings are very precise and can tweat to match tones to perfection. it also has a 20 second looper which is fun to play with. i would highly recommend this pedal. i also see a comment from someone giving it three stars. he complained saying that if you want to turn off distortion, you have to stop and scroll down and turn it off. disreguard that comment for it is done by one hit of your foot. the whole point of the presets is to tune distortion on in one, then off in another. that simple. *there are 120 presets to fill*

Awesome

By Zeni

from PA

I just bought the RP250 for yesterday and Im having a ball with this thing. I think the RP255 replaced the 250. Anyway, this thing seems very durable. Has so many effects, amp models etc. to mess around with. I had a few Stomp boxes and now Im selling them because they are in this pedal plus a whole lot more. Its a must for any guitarist who doesnt have something like this. Only the 2nd day and I'm looking forward to creating my own sounds. Get it you won't regret it

very impressive pedal

By Tim

from WI

This pedal surprised me when i started it up, i have a cheap peavey raptor plus, but it made my guitar sound 100 times better than before, No matter what kind of music you play there is an effect on here for you,i like that you can turn wah on and off when you want too, has noise gate which helps me allot because 3 out of the 5 pick-up settings buzz, not anymore. it is hard switching from one effect to the other, but you can customize effects so if you customize effects you can place them right next to each other, I hope this review helped you,

ok guys listen up

By keith

from blaine,mn

ok i bought this unit about 2 months ago.it was some of the best money i have ever spent.i'm not what you would call a effects guy by any means however having just started my new band(we have all played for 30 years each.)anyway one night at practice my old boss me-5 had a melt down.so i was forced to get a new fx system so i did my homework looked at all the stuff out there.I plugged into this and fell in love.it has everything a guitarist would want.I've used this unit hard from the time i bought it and use it at lest 6 hours a day due to the fact that i'm out of work right now.I have yet not had to add any new settings because these settings are almost perfectly set up for clasic rock sets.the best part is the price.I'm really impressed with my rp 255 thanks digitech

One little glitch

By Madscotsman

from Grand Rapids, MI

I've been using the RP150 for about five years. It was getting pretty ratty, so my wife gave me the RP250 for Christmas. I love this pedal! The effects are cleaner and easier to personalize than with previous Digitechs, and the USB port combined with the included software allows me to swap song/lick ideas with other band members in between rehearsals. The only flaw I've found is the looper...it works well enough, but we play a wide variety of styles, frequently with one song segueing into the next. The fact that holding the "arrow down" pedal down for 2 seconds throws you into looper mode instead of zooming you into the right voicing for the next song can be a real pain.

AWESOMENESS!!!!

By Michael, Lead Singer of Piratas De D

from Dallas TX

I was going to buy a boss ML-2 Metalcore pedal but was introduced to this bad baby when in the store and I must say it is one wailing pedal! You have to get used to making your own tweaks and what not, but some of the predefined sounds that come with it are just amazing! The "Heavy" sound and the "Metallica" sounds are 2 of my favorites to use on the pedal, and I can tell you, if you like Hammerfall, Iced Earth, Megadeth, Metallica, Pantera, King Diamond, Mercyful Fate, etc, then this pedal is for you!!! I was rocking so much when i got it that I forgot to go to sleep, and so now i'm at work tired as hell, but still jamming out in my head!

A Nifty Pedal That will Amuse All Guitar Players!!

By Emerson

from Somerset, New Jersey

While you may think that digitech pedals don't have the sound quality needed for a good performance or recording, you are wrong!!! This pedal sounds exceptional and serves well, both, for a new guitarist trying to get new sounds or for a more seasoned player to find a sound that fits their style without having to worry about the hassle of a huge pedalboard; it also works well as an "around the house" throw-around pedal that works well for practicing at home or before gigs. The sound is very exceptional (of course its not an expensive tube amp, but the sound quality is serves well) it has a whole bunch of distortions that will suit your needs, from oversaturated tube breakdown, to overdrive, to high gain metal distortions. The integrated looper allows for lots of fun while you practice because you can record up to 20 seconds and just jam with yourself (Try recording a chord progression and just improvise to it.....you can switch presets while in loop mode. The drum patterns are ok, they aren't the best but then again this isn't drum it's a multi-effects unit. The expression pedal works nicely and you can apply most parameters to it, it has also an adjustable V-Switch that allows to engage the Wah effect by just applying pressure to the expression pedal (Very Useful for soloing with wah effects!!) Also, you might want to get the Pro Coverage for this because its the footswitches aren't as reliable as they should be. However, I would recommend this to anyone and I would definitely buy again if broke or got stolen (As I am going since it unfortunately did, however I'm Getting the upgraded 355 version this time, which you should buy if you are actively gigging) Bottom line this pedal is great, if you are thinking of buying it, do buy it!!! You will not regret it.

cool but so confusing

By guitargodgreg

from Los Angeles, CA

When i first got this pedal i was looking for a pedal that's not as big as a pedalboard but still as effective. The pedal sounds great however the preset effects are a annoyance to shuffle though to play songs, and are ridiculously easy to screw up. One major downside is that if you want to turn on or off distortion you have to stop playing and shuffle through stuff to shut it off or on.

Not very good

By D.B.

from las vegas,nevada

My second Digitech pedal but I`m not impressed! Presets from previous units are not convertible. So digitech has alot of great presets in its forums you can`t download and use with this thing! Also you can`t tranfer your existing presets.
