I do not use the FX on my RP500 very often, so I am thinking of selling it and going to buy just 2 or 3 pedals that don't sound quite as digital. I want to get a Digitech Hardwire TL-2, an MXR 10-band EQ, and either the Hardwire delay or the MXR Carbon Copy Delay pedals. I want to get probably $220 for the RP, so I'd have enough $$$ to get the pedals, but first I just wanted to hear some opinions on that. Preferably unbiased, however difficult that is for us UG'ers. Thnx...

I bought the RP 50 years ago and never really got into it as much. I bought some pedals and they've taken over as my main effects.

I just found the RP's controls and stuff too convoluted to be worth it.

I'd say keep the RP500 until you get a better amp than the FM.

Yeah you're probably right, but til I get the cash for a Soldano...

Any other pedal suggestions? No Metal Zone. I don't like it. Period.

ProCo Rat - Gives a solid classic rock crunch. Crank filter and gain and you almost get a Big Muff.
Big Muff - Smooth fuzz like a sax. Profiles mp3's "Streetwise" and "Loop Noodle Soup" use a Russian Big Muff.
Envelope Filter - for Funk. I have a DOD FX25B and it's pretty cool.
Jeckyll & Hyde - Left side like a Tubescreamer, right side classic crunch like the Rat only a little less bright. Stack them togeather or separate. Tubescreamer side drives other distortion pedals well too.
