    DigiTech GSP2120 ArtistPublished on 07/31/03 at 15:00
    I bought this a few years ago for about $1000. I was looking for something other then stompboxes to give me some good effects. Now i realize that not everything in life is that easy. The 2120 does make some stuff easier how you can program patches and switch not just a effect on and off but actually program patches to the floor board. So im gonna get a k-7 and some more stomp boxes to add to what the 2120 lacks in on sound.

    I like how you can create a sound for what part of your song, and then say another sound for a chorus of the same song and just tap one button and switch between 2 or more completely different effect chains and settings. Programmable foot pedal is also a plus. And......

So im gonna get a k-7 and some more stomp boxes to add to what the 2120 lacks in on sound.

    I like how you can create a sound for what part of your song, and then say another sound for a chorus of the same song and just tap one button and switch between 2 or more completely different effect chains and settings. Programmable foot pedal is also a plus. And the design of the case, nobs and user interface.

    Okay heres where i get nasty. #1 if you gonna state that heavier artists are using your equipment like NIN, Korn and various other metal musicians make sure your distortion lives up to that title. Becuase the solid state distortion sucks. And the tubes suck too. I like my set up to sound like fear factory. And without an additional boss metal zone that would be completely impossible. So if your more into clean sounding effects and light distortions this is a great piece and crystal clear. If your looking to go nuts wiht brutal metal the distortion is lacking and adding too many effects at once in this unit is gonna give you a problem. The manual sucks, very very very vague leaving you puzzled and questioning what hey were trying to say.

    Solid. No problems at all with quality issues. But then again its a rackmount piece. How much abuse can it possible be given? It sits in a case and the nobs get turned, plugged in and turned on..lol But yea solid metal casing, metal nobs (sometimes dont respond right if your moving them too slowely to fine tune something) floor board is common to any of the digitech floor boards.

    Okay like i said before, if your doing ya know jazz,country,rock,r&b or anything on the lighter side of music this piece is wonderful. Now if your gonna go alternative styles of music like industrial,metal,death metal,hardcore, or anything that is heavy you might wanna invest in some other pieces that are giving you the sound you want before you add this into the mix. Right now im gonna invest in some more stomp boxes and then mix it wiht this piece if that doesnt work you might be able to buy it from me on ebay.

    I HAD PURCHASED THIS ITEM AFTER PLAYING THOUGH ONE IN A BAKERSFIELD MUSIC STORE WHILE ON THE PROWL TO FIND SOME GEAR FOR MY RACK. I HAD READ ABOUT THEM IN MUSICIANS FRIEND CATALOG AND WAS INTRIGUED. I WAS ALREADY PLAYING THROUGH A DIGITECH PRO 21GSP THAT WAS UPGRADED WITH A LEGEND CHIP. BUT I WANTED THE TREMELO SOUND WITHOUT HAVING TO ADD EXTRA FLOOR PEDALS. AFTER PLAYING THIS "COOL LITTLE BEAUTY" I HAD TO HAVE IT,BUT I COULDN'T AFFORD TO SPEND THE $949.00 FORM MUSICIANS FRIEND. SO I TURNED TO E-BAY AND FOUND SEVERAL. I STARTED BIDDING ON ONE UNTIL I COULDN'T AFORD TO GO ANY MORE. I HIT ON ONE FOR $700.00 PLUS SHIPPING.

SO I TURNED TO E-BAY AND FOUND SEVERAL. I STARTED BIDDING ON ONE UNTIL I COULDN'T AFORD TO GO ANY MORE. I HIT ON ONE FOR $700.00 PLUS SHIPPING.

    THE SOUNDS ON THIS ARE REALLY COOL. PLUS I LIKED THE FACT THAT I COULD KEEP MY SOUND IN THE TUBE REALM. I HAD PLAYED FOR YEARS SOLID STATE,AND WASN'T HAPPY WITH THE WAY MY SOUND WAS COMING OUT SO I GOT RID OF THE TWO COMBO AMPS, AND BOUGHT A PEAVEY 60/60 STEREO RACK AMP. HEAVEN AGAIN; SINCE I STARTED PLAYING WHEN TUBES WERE THE ONLY THING AVAILABLE.
    DUAL DISTORTION PATHS (TUBE & SOLID STATE) GAVE ME AN EDGE THAT BLEW AWAY MY BUDDIES! I WAS IMPRESSED WITH THE MANY PRESETS THIS UNIT HAD TO OFFER.I COULD PLAY THE SURF SOUNDS AGAIN.OR SOME NASTY BLUES,COUNTRY,OR MODERN ROCK. SOUND LIKE BRIAN MAY FROM QUEEN;IF WANTED TO.OR BB KING. NAME IT I COULD DO IT.

    I WASN'T TOO THRILLED ABOUT HAVING TO MAKE A SHORT PATCH CORD TO CONNECT THE DIGITECH'S INPUT FROM THE FRONT. ALL THE REST OF MY CONNECTIONS ARE IN THE REAR. NOR WAS I PLEASED WITH NOT BEING ABLE TO RANDOMLY ACCESS PATCHES ON THE FLY LIKE MY GSP. HEAR THAT DIGITECH! ALSO THE MANUAL IS TOO VAGUE.

    EVERYTHING ELSE ON THIS UNIT IS A MAJOR PLUS. EASY ACCESS IN THE REAR. LOTS OF CONTROLS ON THE FRONT PANEL.JUST WHAT YOU WOULD EXPECT FROM A HIGH PRICED PROCESSOR.PLUS THE PURPLE FACE ADDS A LITTLE COLOR TO MY RACK.

    I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYONE WANTING TO BE ABLE TO CREATE THEIR OWN SOUND WITH ALL THE EFFECTS AVAILABLE IN THIS UNIT WITHOUT HAVING TO DO THE "FRED ASTAIR TOE TAP DANCE". AS ONE WOULD DO WITH STOMP BOXES. YOU JUST HAVE TO TRY IT FOR YOURSELF AND SEE.

    As multi-effects, it is complete, comprehensive, with the effects of very high quality.

    The edition sound effects or is it easy? Trs!
    The manual is clear and sufficient? ... Well, go, I will say that this cot is not perfect, I find nothing more than what I dj dduis the direct use of the rack (to be said that the 'widescreen makes good) but hey, I put even when using 10/10 because you can not have any problem to use. Same for edit sounds in PC, it's simple, just plug a MIDI cable in, another out, all on the sound card and you're jou were very fortunate to see the curves graphic EQ and you can save all sounds best on a PC.

    SOUNDS

    Saying anything, PRO quality.
    It is true that the price of the bte, it was better ...
    We found there in the end and I like the sound trs own (although the mean finger on the strings, ...)
    Again, I compare against other prampli: the JMP1 (which also has two 12AX7 type lamps). We can say that the 2120VGS at least as good sound quality but that can refine even more with the graphic EQ and / or parameter. In addition, there is a choice with the digitech to go through the lamps (tubes) or channel transistor (solid state).

    OVERALL OPINION

    DSOL to 10/10 still has not trssrieux, but when you get any satisfaction in a product, we can finally concentrate fully practice the guitar without thinking we could have better sound (well you can always be better, but what price?: for those who think mesaboogie eg. we would lose can be more versatile) What a pleasure to finally play with the sounds we love .. .. In short, it's a double pramp a multi-purpose high quality of trs.
    I think it is no longer available for about a year, will be difficult for digitech to do better, and if you have the opportunity to listen the sound that comes out, jump on the OCCAZ ...

    I think we did in the preceding notice an update on its characteristics. The doc is quite easily "findable" to realize. It's serious and even more for the time of its release.

    UTILIZATION

    For the uninitiated, rack focus will spend some time with the good doc but must not be rocket science to create patches. The screen makes it easy and with a minimum of time you become familiar with the manipulation of databases.

    To fully exploit the possibilities of the machine is something else. Routing is couillu a song and we really wide action.

    SOUNDS

    I used to when I was in a rack config mesa 20/20. I used the preamp section and effect. On reflection I think it would better serve only Vallue effects. The preamp is very light for me who had a big lead in potato. Even by combining the tube and the state it lacks dynamic sounds pretty cold. In clean and crunch is a regal but distortion is really like ... more is still a bit light for lovers of big sounds.

    The effects are very thin and provide broad possibilities also seen that they can be up one block after another. Only the reverb did not satisfy me. I put an average score as a preamp / multi-effects preamp section I relied a lot on which disappointed me. Too flat and all seems cold.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Listening to live taken and I did at the time, I think it was a good machine but to combine with a preamp at the level of concern because the dynamics does not solve that easily. If the effects section is of good quality, better seriously consider the additional purchase of a preamp, especially if it is to use live.

    Given the current price it can be found in the € 650 is an interesting stuff for those who do not work too much lead or at least not in large distortion.

    UTILIZATION

    The configuration is painful .... need to fiddle about in the manual if it is guaranteed to crash, especially if one wants to create characters alogorythmes ...
    The presets are excellent, some changes to make and they sound of thunder
    yes the manual is clear but should be read in french it's easier

    SOUNDS

    This amp is very versatile and very punchy and it fits my guitars' Vigier Excalibur or jackson sl1) with delight
    The clean sounds are superb with Reverb The phaser is amazing ... its clear ..
    The distortion is excellent in a hard rock record of the year 80/90
    I love all the sounds that come out of this preamp is without exception the most versatile I've owned

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 3 months .. I was put off by his side had a factory gazj'ai Marchall JMP1 Quadraverb coupled with a boss or a G700 I found the settings + easy
    I had a pod live a digitech rp 350 ^ I thought briefly get out without too galleys, well it is not won
    At present the value for money is excellent ... nothing to do with the crank gear level simulators amp .. The sound is richer deeper + dynamic mix of short out easily it's heavy, coupled with the pedal is the top
    All that's missing a publisher that works properly under Vista and allows us to do all the chaining and the changes it wants without taking the head ...

    I am now convinced by this type of stuff so the idea to take another seems to me not stupid, or try the prophesy for example ...

    We get a good sound easily if one starts with a preset origin. on the other hand, to fiddle in and create a new sound, well need to spend a little time! if not, I think almost anything is possible, provided programming

    SOUNDS

    it fit your style of music? With what (s) guitar (s) / low (s) or effect (s) do you play? What kind of sound you get and with what settings ("crystalline", "fat ",....)? What are the sounds you prefer, you hate?

    It is especially important that you can combine a lamp with a solid state distortion for example.
    The clean sounds are very good, distos contairement are nice and some advice, I find them quite adequate.
    I play it with my Vigier Passion
    I especially like the preset Satch 1 and 2
    I did not need so many user memories, just 3 or 4 presets and it's good fun.

    OVERALL OPINION

    For how long have you been using it? What thing do you like most/least about it? Did you try many other models before getting this one? What is your opinion about the value for the price? Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...

    3 months, buying used, I was drooling at its output (1600eur. priceless for me) I see it is still down, fairly intuitive.
    He did not have all these amp models that I hate, it's really a preamp with a good multi-effects.
    Not at all outdated in my opinion, someone really did something new since then?
    Tested before any kind ... All tube amp + pedal line, replaced by a pedal to modeling and then resold to the rack.
    I like the fact that this is a rack (not like me bend over and break my back on a pedal) and I like its sound quality.
    The fact that there are knobs on the front and it finally set as an amp is not bad at all. Of course with this type of gas plant, should spend some time on it, but eventually all those pesky cables, power supply and in any kind of buzz everywhere! it's super clean, studio-quality if you want and everything is in the box, nothing is missing. I just use my wah-wah in front, turn on and play it. Turn a knob press store and it's done. I regret that there is no headphone jack on it. The only addition to the current devices is the USB for transfer and exchange of sounds on the net, I think.
    At the price I got was a good buy, especially since I sold my pedals at the same price. At full price, not that I purchased. Always very current
