DigiTech RP200A
The Digitech RP200A is a multi-effects guitar processor. It is digitally based and has just about every typical guitar effect you can think of. You can mix and match the effects, use the presets, or create your own presets. It has 40 presets from the company and then has 40 more you can program yourself. It also has expression pedal that really comes in handy. It has 1/4 inch inputs and outputs for your instrument and it is not rackable as it is a foot pedal.

UTILIZATION

The configuration of the pedal is pretty easy to follow. You can select between the effects and presets with the foot controllers and it has three knobs that control various parameters depending on the effect you are using. The manual seems pretty through, but I haven't used it too much as it is an easy pedal to learn.

SOUND QUALITY

The effects of this pedal are versatile and it is easy to get a wide array of effects. I love having all of these effects in one place, and it is real nice to be able to make my own presets to use. I have only used this pedal with guitar - usually a Gibson SG and a '76 Fender Twin Reverb amplifier. My favorite sounds on this are the delay and the compressor, although all of the effects are pretty usable. This being said, the effects aren't the best I've heard, or even close to it, but it is nice to have a variety of usable effects within one unit.

OVERALL OPINION

The Digitech RP200A was the first guitar effects processor I bought about five years ago. I have since upgraded to using a number of different pedals to achieve the sounds I got with this, but for the time I had this it worked quite well for me. The sounds are good and being able to make your own presets is a huge plus. The price is also a huge selling point, as this unit is really cheap, giving you a wide array of sounds for a cheap price. I would definitley recommend those interested in getting into using effects on their guitar to check out this unit.

MGR/Mike M's review"Digitech RP200A"

DigiTech RP200A
I bought this a a music store in Boston, Mass used for $100 in excellent condition. I bought as an upgrade to my original unit the RP50 which i grew out of. Also i bought it because i wanted something really simple i didnt want to have to carry around all these effects pedals, this fits easily in a backpack or some other type of small bag.

I like that it has the built in expression pedal because my old RP50 didnt have one. Ive always liked Mike Einzigers volume swells so I wanted to use it for that and the wah. Im a big fan of the wah pedal so i was happy it came built in and i was able to easily get my own wah programmed in. Also theres many different ways you can make each effect different. Theres so many choices I find that flange, chorus, delay, reverb, phaser, and wammy are they coolest effects (in my opinion) on here and i use them all the time. you can get any sound out of this thing! the best part about this unit is how much money you save rather than buying several different pedals and cables. the amp modeling is great to because my distortion on my amp is so bad so i just put in a clean setting and play.

I dont like the fact that its so difficult for me to find the right EQ. you might not have this problem but i cant find a clear distortion sound. The wah on this unit is alright but i think ill save up and get a seperate wah pedal.

This thing is unbreakable to me because im aways dropping capos and slide on the screan and theres no marks sometimes i drop it not a dent or anything...well built and long lasting.

Besides the dislikes i mentioned everything is great i love it and ill probably have it for a long time. i suggest you go out and buy one youll like it too. Oh and and please DO NOT pass up this item just because i cant get a really clear sound but i got really close im just stupid and i still have to get used to it. trust me you want this pedal!

MGR/Alex's review"Digitech RP200A"

DigiTech RP200A
I got this unit for christmas. It's $150.00 in musiciansfriend

Everything is great. I couldnt get over on how great all the effects sounded and there is so many ways to change them and manipulate them. The drum machine is awesome. I read some other reviews befor i got the item and people said the Wah setting on the expresion pedal isnt all that great. I think they just couldnt figure out how to use it. What you do is you choose it in the expresion pedal then you go up to the top and use the second knob and choose what type of wah you want.

There is nothing that is wrong with this.

The quality is great the whole this is medal except for the blue pedals, people dont think they can withstand stomping but there made out of a very strong plastic.

this is the best

DigiTech RP200A
Largely given elsewhere: I note that the machine still gives an impression of solidity.

UTILIZATION

Configuration and editing simple and logical. Sufficient manual (in English only, in my experience). I wanted to highlight an unusual use: effects for harmonica (diatonic blues anyway). The idea was given to me by a harmonica player from the United States, which is selling Digitech settings, he uses himself. For $ 15, I experienced and some of these "patches" are actually very useful. See site
http://www.hunterharp.com/effectset.html.

SOUND QUALITY

Again, my purpose is not that of a guitarist, and I have little experience of effect pedals. Most effects seemed to me very correct, we must take it easy with the feedback delay, the reverb can be used without further but this is not the strong point. The difference between some virtual amplifier (Blackface and shop) seemed huge (size and distortion).

OVERALL OPINION

After two weeks of experience, I am satisfied with my choice, especially for a pedal that I paid, nine, 85 euros. I use a microphone for harmonica "Bottle o 'Blues" and send the output to a small Roland Cube CM-30. This weekend, I Strenna formula on stage for a few solos for harp, my colleagues and the man musicos sound which dub the CM-30, were happy. Positive results.

- Fully Pdalier numrique (ADC / DAC 24-bit), no PC connection.
- Connectivity: Jack In, Jack Out, "Jam-A-Long" mini jack to connect an external sound source, headphone jack, power.
- An expression pedals (assignable volume, wah, whammy, power of effect, effect settings (PERIOD of tremolo or flanger example ),...)
- 2 switches, a "select" button to edit the preset, a button "store" to save the whole, a button "drums" for the box rhythms, 3 knobs to diffrent assignments depending on use.

Tuner function.
Simulations Amp: '65 Fender Twin Reverb, Matchless DC30 Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier, Mesa Boogie MKIIC, '57 Fender Tweed Deluxe, Vox AC30 Top Boost, Marshall '78, Marshall JCM900, "Fuzz," "Acoustic", " Clean Tube "," Crunch. "
Several simus Wha. Simus of several speakers. EQ, Noise Gate, Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Tremolo, Panner, Vibrato, Rotary, Yaya, AutoYa, Autowha, SynthTalk, Envelope Filter, Detune, Pitch Shifter, Whammy.
Delay (Numrique, simulation of analog, Ping Pong), several types of reverb.
"Drum Machine" pretty basic.

40 presets + 40 other artists presets.
Plutt complete a multi-effect of this range (85 thomann.de on ...)

UTILIZATION

The configuration is bone simple: APRS selection of a preset with the pedals, the edition is done with the select button and three knobs. Even without instructions, in 10 minutes it took over.
The edition of the sounds is very simple.
The expression pedals rpond well, the knobs may be a little sensitive (that would be fine with a system that allows a dfile not - not values).
The manual is clear plutt.
However, small -: the tiny button "Drum Machine" is not practical, and the choice of a value is almost impossible prcise bpm (knob too sensitive and values ​​in increments of 2: 100, 102, 104 ...)
It would also be more convenient to switch between the functions of the expression pedals (volume / whammy for example) without having to touch rglages. (But nothing serious, just edit two successive presets, one with the volume and the other with the whammy, and when to switch.)

Trs easy to use, intuitive, accessible.

SOUND QUALITY

I use a Cort KX1F, and only with headphones.
- Simus The amp is correct for a camera in this class, provided for use with speaker simulation, otherwise garish trs.
- The effects are good overall: ok chorus, flanger phaser nice but not gnial, ok tremolo, pitch shifter pretty cool, by simulating whammy against average trs (trying in an effects loop on a good amp, it might be better ... but in direct use, it's garish, and full of parasites imprcis)
- The wha-wha are pretty cool, still has a sound multi-effects pedals trs far from true wha, but OK.
- Delays INTERESTED (but not gniale volume edition) and easily adjustable, reverbs correct.
Some factory presets are trs INTERESTED, but most are anecdotal and trs even when only serve to make the toy beginners ... Edit faster you same your own sounds.
The whole is trs east hard rock / metal, with its synthetic trs, but not go wrong.

The (well,) the sound of Drum Machine trs is basic, it is not with you will make a coaching drinking anything. However, as a mtronome is relatively convenient

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 3 months now.
J'apprcie amp simulations, the simplicity of use, quality and wide selection of sound effects for some. The sound is far from being perfect, but widely acceptable to the headphone.
However, I regret the lack of quality of the Whammy, and the impossibility to combine several effects (chorus + tremolo? ^ ^ Finally becomes a complicated modliser I think) but not d quences.
A BIG +: the expression pedals, and prcise with a wide range, years Lumire many other multi-effects I've tried (although sr is only my opinion). It is a pleasure to use.
Let's say for under $ 100, I doubt that you will find more complete, simpler and better sound quality.
With exprience, I would do this election if j'tais limit in the budget (which silent my case). Otherwise, I would put a little more and invest in a Zoom G2.1u plutt, or in a Pod Floor Pod ...

This pdalier Submitted normment DIFFERENT effects like whammy, clean sound, the fuzz, chorus, ...

UTILIZATION

It is a pdalier trs trs simple configuration, where we can edit the sounds of a fawn simple, with a clear manual, explaining all disponnible effect and indicating that each effect can be used to do.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound quality is not bad at all, the effect is much imitated, however, a guitarist for beginners, this too pdalier Submitted sounds and effects, even I myself a hard time serve me a quarter of effect.
However, I'm mostly down on music death metal, hard core, and no sound can be used to play this style, and setting up sound of this type is trs trs hard for the his demand ... For the guitarist in my case, I suggest you a pedal that is the "METAL ZONE BOSS" is a 99 euro!

OVERALL OPINION

I use this pdalier for 1 year, I am satisfied there normment of possibilities and for the price trs is correct, the quality of the product is good trs trs .
