DigiTech® proudly introduces an affordable Amp Modeling Multi-Effects Processor with a built-in expression pedal. The new RP200 combines the tones of 12 vintage and modern Amps with 28 fully programmable, studio quality effects (up to 11 at once). The built in expression pedal can be assigned to control your choice of parameters in real time. Each effect includes up to 3 adjustable parameters providing the flexibility to create the exact sound you're looking for. The 6 character alpha-numeric display and 3 knob-matrix based user interface provide simple, straight forward editing functions. The Rhythm Trainer is a great tool for improving your timing with your choice of different patterns, tempo, and adjustable volume level. A chromatic tuner lets you quickly check or tune your instrument to one of 4 different tuning references.

The RP200 comes ready to use with 40 great Factory Presets, and includes 40 User Presets for custom creations. The rear panel features a single 1/4" input, a 1/4" TRS stereo output, 1/8" stereo headphone output for late night rehearsal, and an 1/8" stereo Jam-a-Long™ input.

General Comments:
Fantastic buy. I recommend for anyone who is just starting to learn guitar but is very convenient for professional use. Fantastic features, many presets and the cool thing of putting in your own presets. The pedal is rather sturdy, though i have heard of people who have broken theirs, it has been flawless. Sound quality is rather good aswell, though occasionly the effects sound louder when the volume has not been changed. Very good effects for small amps.

What do you especially like about this product?
Pretty much I like everything about it. The presets are very accurate and the great feature is adding your own effects into the pedal. To find artist presets not on the pedal, go to www.digitech.com and go to rp200. The product is very reliable and is surprisingly cheap.

What do you dislike about this product?
The only bad things about the product is the way that you have to go through all the effects without just skipping to a single one. The pedal is known to be bodgy, but is fine for me. The sound quality is fine except for when it goes louder for no reason.

General Comments:
This is basically an average, low-end multi-effects pedal. Despite all the wonderful features DigiTech outlines, it's nothing really special-however, if you can't afford to buy the effects it offers individually, this could be a good purchase. Otherwise, I'd reccomend either buying a few good stompboxes or, if you can afford it, a better multi-effects.

What do you especially like about this product?
A few of the features are actually really useful; the abiility to create your own custom presets, the foot pedal, and the built-in tuner come to mind. If you have the patience, you can fine-tune the settings to get great sounds, as the level of customization offered is staggering. It can be a good pedal if you work with it a bit.

What do you dislike about this product?
Two of the above features I've outlined-the foot pedal and the tuner-both broke! The foot pedal now seems to be permanently stuck in the "all the way off" position no matter how much I pump it up and down, which renders any settings with a wah-wah or pitch bend useless, as well as any that use the foot pedal to adjust the volume. This constitutes about half of the built-in settings that I now cannot use. In addition, the tuner will now erraticaly display random notes that have nothing to do with the actual note being played; I can drone a low E and see everything from an F to a D#. Arrgghh!
