So, I was looking for my first effects pedal and I stumbled upon these two digitech toys:

http://www.guitarcenter.com/DigiTech-RP90-Guitar-Multi-Effects-Pedal-104653852-i1375342.gc

and

http://www.guitarcenter.com/DigiTech-RP150-Guitar-Multi-Effects-Pedal-103952115-i1169083.gc


My question is the following: If the two are the same price, why would anyone get the RP90 over the Rp150. To me, it just seems like the RP150 has way more features and effects, so why is it priced the same as its (seemingly) previous model?

I feel like I'm missing something here, such as something the RP90 has that the RP150 doesn't...

Please don't flame me if this is a dumb question...im just not sure which one to get.

RP90 has the expression pedal.
RP250 has more effects than the RP150 and it also has an expression pedal.
I'd say anything in that line of pedals is a GREAT first effects pedal to get. It's got USB connectivity, a lot of effects, and a ton of great amp tones as well. I never use my amp without that pedal anymore.

ok, well sorry if i sound even noobier, but can somebody explain to me the significance of the expresssion pedal? I thought the pedal was just to turn the effects on and off quickly.

The RP90 has an expression (wah) pedal but no USB and is made of plastic.

The RP150 has no expression pedal, but does have USB and is made of metal.

The RP250 has exp pedal, USB and made of metal.

The USB is handly because you can connect to a computer to download new effects, made edits to the effects you already have and us as a recording interface.

There are other diff as well, like the number of total effects and so forth. There is a wealth of info and demos at digitech.com

can i switch channels on it, like can i use it to change my tone from like, a clean chorus to a death metal verse?
-Does it sound digital or what?
and
-whats the overall quality, would i be better off buying pedals?

if this isnt right for me, what should i get?
i play mostly death metal and black metal, but sometimes i like to play things... a bit softer, like Dream Theater, Cold, Kamelot, and stuff.???

If i've been thinking about getting a mutli-effect pedal, is this one any good?
should i get one of these or a bunch of pedals?

Yes, you can change your tone with the up/down footbuttons.
Yes, it does sound somewhat digital and the overall quality of the effects is pretty cheap. It's good for a first effects pedal, but you will want to upgrade it once you develop an ear for this kind of stuff.
