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.

I love it

By Brock

from crescent city, fl

Comments about Digitech RP355 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

After messing with my RP150 and Toneport UX2 for a little over a year now, I picked this baby up from my local music shop just days ago and I'm still dropping my jaw at all the sounds this thing can create - and how many of them sound so amazing. If you're at all familiar with digitech's super-easy-to-use interface, you're basically working with the same setup as on previous installments of the RP series. For those not familiar, it'll take about 10 minutes (tops) of your time before you start carving out your own presets from the vast amounts of provided amp + cabinet models, compressors, eq's, distortion units, and all of the other possible effect combinations your mind can envision. The expression pedal provides hours of fun, the looper is handy and at your disposal, and the stompbox mode makes it super easy to play out live. Not to mention the USB capability that will blow your mind. Basically, for recording musicians who want to have fun and play a few basement shows - you will love this. Super serious musicians who can't do without their crazy guitar rigs with tube amplifiers and whatnot will probably think this is just a toy. This is pure liquid.

Good idea, terrible hardware.

By Dennis

from Warren, OH

Comments about Digitech RP355 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

I bought this as a Christmas present to myself last year, as I was in search of a good, complete system that didn't require 8 different pedals. For functionality, the RP355 is completely worth it. The tones are very customizable, whether you play brutal, technical metal, to beautiful clean leads, trance style music...anything you want. The overall sound is limited to the creativity and patience of the musician at hand. The hardware, however, is complete garbage. I'm a performing musician, so I use my processor often...but the "actuators" in the footswitches suck. I had 2 of them go out simultaneously, had it repaired, and now one of my footswitches went out. As a live musician, I can't be having these little inconsistencies. If this pedal had analog switches, rather than the electronic actuator concept...this thing would be golden. Alas, it does not.

The Perfect Gift

By Debbie

from Oxford, Ohio

Comments about Digitech RP355 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

I bought this pedal for my son's 21st birthday. Since I don't play myself all I can say is he loves it and uses it everyday. I'm not sure how this would rate with a professional musician but for a self taught guy who likes to play at home or with some friends it is perfect. I will say that this site has fantastic customer service. They called me to verify the purchase prior to charging my account since the shipping and billing addresses were not the same. This is something I wish more companies would do and I greatly appreciated that.

Awesome, Must Buy.

By Chris Parise

from big rapids, mi

Comments about Digitech RP355 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

I got the rp355 last summer, after my rp350 died suddenly, and Guitar Center no longer carried it, and upgraded me to the Rp355 for free. this pedal has drastically changed my approach to songwriting, sound, and everything in between. The looper allows for unlimited overdubbing for endless room to create textures, or just something to jam off of. Most of the presets are great, and making your own presets is easy as well. Over all, a must have, great tool to have, regardless of genre and style.

great all around pedal

By Spence

from Springfield, VA

Comments about Digitech RP355 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

I've had this pedal for a little over 6 months and it has been everything I wanted. I'm able to run this through a 15W practice amp and still get really good sound. With all the different amp settings and effects, I can get a pretty good Metallica, then AC/DC, then Iron Maiden, then Chuck Berry sound all saved on presets. Beyond the sound, my favorite feature is the looper. For ease of use, can't beat it. Within a week of bringing it home, I caught my 9 year old jamming with the looper. I couldn't be too mad, cuz she sounded pretty good. Bottom line, good technology, good sound, and great value.

AMAZING PEDAL!!! I love mine

By Lucas

from Richmond, IN

Comments about Digitech RP355 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

Amazing. It is everything I expected and more, and the tonal possibilities are endless. I got mine on sale @ guitar center in Indy for about $180. It was sort of confusing at first but I mastered it in a day. (reading the manual three or four times really helps) PROs: *lots of: effects and parameters to edit them *lots of amp models and cabinets to choose from *you can edit any of 70 presents, save them, and name them *many famous stompboxes, amps, effects, and cabinets mimicked *so many possibilities!! *all in one. literally. basically everything you'll need for a while if you're just starting out CONs: I didn't have any major problems whatsoever but these are my little complaints *the drum patterns aren't too good and you can't use the drum machine at the same time as the looper; one or the other *the 'edit' buttons are a little small... *presets' names can only be 6 letters long *to switch to and from some of the modes you have to push two pedals at the EXACT same time and sometimes I have trouble doing that... but I have smaller feet *acoustic sims aren't that realistic, they sound more like a really clean chimey guitar Bottom line: BUY THIS!!!

GREAT!!!

By Ben

from Temperance, Michigan

Comments about Digitech RP355 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

I have had this pedal for about a month now and i love it. There are so many different combinations of effects, you can create any sound you want. The clean is so clear you would swear it was an acoustic. The gain is perfect for any amount of distortion. If you are debating between this and a similar pedal for the price... GET THIS!

Digitech Rp355

By Britton Rice

from Mustang, Oklahoma

Comments about Digitech RP355 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

Very good pedal. I've had my share of pedals and this is by far the best. I started with a Rp150, it was good but not as good as this. I play music like parkway drive and chelsea grin. I play in drop b and this thing just tears it up. If you want good distortion, clean and good sounding harmonics this is the pedal to buy. Go get it, it's worth the money.

Buy It

By Dave K.

from Commack, NY

Comments about Digitech RP355 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

I'm very, very happy having finally bought this piece of gear. Extremely versatile yet simple. I highly recommend installing the two pieces of software off their site so you can edit and control it through your computer. That also allows for direct play & record via USB into Cubase. There are 70 presets. Some useless, some fun, some exactly what I wanted. There are enough editable parameters to really allow for shaping the preset. And changing a parameter really makes a difference to the sound so it is worth taking the time to experiment. The amp modeling section is more than I expected to find in what I think of as an effects box. I spent a lot of months agonizing over whether to get a new guitar, a new amp or this. I an so satisfied I scrimped and got this. Now, I play clean �ۡ���� something my amp can handle �ۡ���� the RP355 handles all the sonic goodness and I love my guitar even more. Physically, the unit is more rugged than I imagined it would be. The pedal works smoothly. My only complaint is that it can be a pain to switch from edit mode to play mode �ۡ���� you have to hit two pedals simultaneously �ۡ���� if you're not using the computer to edit. I'll sum it up with what I said to a buddy after I demoed it: �ۡ��̏Now that's what an electric guitar is supposed to sound like!�ۡ�ݕ�_

Terrible Footswitches/ Wah Pedal and Terrible Through Amp

By Joe

from Queens, NY

Comments about Digitech RP355 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

This pedal is great for recording, but as a live effects pedal it is awful. My Footswitches would often stick, causing the effects to change mid song. My wah pedal stopped working after about 4 months of owning the pedal. I love it for recording purposes but when put through an amp this pedal sounds awful.

Nice piece of technology

By taylor moon

from Colorado Springs, CO

Comments about Digitech RP355 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

I got this as a birthday present yesterday and, while i did not feel like tweaking with it then, ever since i got home this evening Ive been playing with it. so, some things about this review, first, im fifteen and a three year player, and this review should be treated accordingly. second, the others are true testimonies to how i feel about the pedal, so i wont waste my tme or yours repeating what they already say. after playing for about 2 hours i had the presets, looper, stompbox and wah effects figured out ( i think completely) if that gives you any idea how easy it is to learn. the presets are 70 factory and the same factory settings, only then editable, under the idea that you can edit the ones you almost love, keep the ones you already do, and toss the ones youll never use. personally i like this feature. the first 20ish presets are meant to be classic amps and sounds that the mainstream guitarist would love. afterwards are combos of the various effects that are mostly only utilizable in small parts of songs, if at all. following them are more of the same, mixed with the effects meant for punk, grunge and general indie, (me) and at the end there are some effects that model jimi hendrix and ac/dc. i found myself wanting something like that list before i sat down and played for hours. i have decided that the pedal, once figured out is extremely functional, but getting to this point is time consuming. i still have no idea how to do many of the functions described in the manual, but im on my way. the looper takes about 5 seconds to figure out, and the multi- layering is sublime. i managed to have a "bass" an "acoustic" on rhythm, as well as suitable drums backing my playing in about a minute, which is amazing, safe to say. as for the sound, i had been planning on replacing my brother's old practice amp (its more mine now since he rarley plays electric) due to its frail, hollow sound. i plugged in to the amp, rather unhappily, to discover that the sound i heard was rich, full and powerful. i have no idea how, but i decided right off the bat that it was something to be loved, not questioned. so, overall, if you posess the patiance to develop a knowlage of this little box, you will be greatly rewarded. im so incredibly happy with this product, i highly recomend it.

Tone Killer

By Chandler

from Tulsa, OK

Comments about Digitech RP355 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

I got this multi-effects pedal before I bought my first tube amp. At first, I thought it was great because it has lots of neat effects. Eventually, I came to realize that my amp sounded absolutely awful. So, I bought a new tube amp, which sounds worlds better than the solid-state. At some point, I also came to realize that this multi-effects was not professional-grade either. So, I got a fantastic distortion pedal, the Fulltone PlimSoul. Eventually, I decided to A/B the two pedals before I bought a whole bunch of other stompboxes. I plugged them both in at the same time, tried both distortions, and they both sounded pretty similar. Then I took the multi-effects out of the chain... I got tone that was at least ten times better than with the multi-effects (I know it wasn't the PlimSoul's fault because it has true bypass). I haven't tried the RP355 for recording, but it does not sound good for actually playing through an amp. Basically, don't buy this pedal if you want to have any sort of good tone. I personally wouldn't purchase any digital pedals, either.

The rp 355 is okay. But after about a month of using it, the expression pedal stopped working. And I have nothing against digitech, but they either need to improve their design, or improve their QC.

I went shopping around for a new multi-effects pedal. I have tried them all. I always seem to pick digi-tech. One of the cool things for me is the USB connection to my computer. I love to record. And my pedal works perfect. So good in fact that I've used it to record on Tommy Lee's Methods of Mayhem project. They told me the tone is perfect. And sure enough I made it on the album.So this pedal is great for studio recording. I only use $60.00 software so it's the pedal that makes the great sound.There is a bass guitar effect on this pedal that works really good. So you don't even need a bass guitar. I use that effect on all my recordings as well. Saves lots of money there alone.I will use digi-tech for life!!!

Comments about Digitech RP355 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

when I got this I didn't really have my hopes up but wow, this thing eats babies. I mostly play metal and this thing is one of the best there is for that genre, by far the best for it's price. I also play some blues and it sounds great for that. The distortion is amazing and really customizable. I've set it up so that it has a lot of punch but not too much, and also bright and gnarly (great for solos and riffing). The noise gate on it works amazing, I thought I'd have to buy a seperate pedal for noise recuction but this works really good. the cleans also are just godly. I like it with a nice hall reverb and just a touch of delay and this thing makes the sound in my head so much better. It has more effects than you'll ever need. I've become rather attatched to the harmonizer, as it really helps add more to my band. Another cool thing is you don't even need to have an amp with this when you play live. I'ts got ins and outs for P.A. so can plug directly into that if you want, but you can also plug into an amp onstage for monitering. the cons of this thing aren't really huge deals for me, the footswitches aren't analog so I don't like that but that's just personally. Also you can't have more than one effect at once wich is another thing that I don't normally use, but it could have been better. The wahs don't sound good at all. but other than that this is an amazing multi effects and the only better thing I can think of is the line 6 pods. Buy this.

Something a girl can stomp on even in cool shoes to make cool sounds. Simple? I think so. Once I opened the package and plugged everything in, I bounced my way around edits and presets. Next it was downloading sound settings from Digitech website on my favorite artists. After a day of playing around and learning by feel, I actually read the manual. So much fun just figuring out the way it worked, I am soooo glad I found a way of linking the expression pedal with various effects in the user presets. (I read very few nasty reviews about this product before purchasing it and I can say that they either got a broken pedal or they are really dumb.) So if you want something to sexy up your sound versatility, then think of buying the RP355! ~Kisses~ LexiKat
