Sound — 10
I use an Epiphone Gothic SG (I'm not a goth, it just looks cool) and a 65 watt Laney (I can't remember the actual name) and with tha it sounds brilliant. It has a noise reducer setting so even with the heaviest distortion from the different distortion pedals you can choose there is no feedback at all. This pedal is brilliant for getting sounds of artists as there are presets for AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Joe Satriani, the sound on 'Enter Sandman' and 'Woman' and probably more that I've forgot, even if there isn't a preset for your chosen artist then it's pretty simple to make one with plenty of choices of amps, distortion pedals and even a choice between humbuckers or single-coil Pick-ups. There is a different choices of effects including flange, chorus, phaser, envelope filter, reverb etc so it is hundreds of pounds/whatever currency you use saved.
Overall Impression — 9
I play classic rock/blues and it fits it perfectly as it would any genre including Death Metal, Indie, jazz and more as it has many different sounds. I have been playing since the start of 2006 and I bought this 7 months ago and it has been in my setup ever since. If it was stolen/lost I would definately save up and buy it again or even buy the more expensive model which has more features. The only thing I wish it had was more drum Machine options as the ones now have a lacking in cymbals and also a recording option would improve my already great liking for this piece of equipment. Overall a brilliant piece of my setup which has more things than I actually need which is a good thing.
Reliability & Durability — 9
This pedal is very reliable as nothing has gone wrong yet and probably never will, even though I've never gigged (I'm 13 so yeah) but if I did I would solely rely on this as my main equipment as it is built with a hard metal case which according to the review in Total Guitar (I didn't copy by the way, you can check) is 'Boot Proof' as it will withstand a lot as many a time I've dropped it and atill it remains undamaged.
Ease of Use — 9
The DigiTech RP250 looks pretty confusing when you first look at it, but 10 minutes and a quick look in the manual and you know all you need to know. Editing patches is made extremely easy as there is a double for each of the 60 presets so you can edit them and still have the original preset left if you decide to use it. The manual just basically tells you all you need to know which is useful but personally I worked it out mostly myself. But overall it is relatively easy to use as everything is in 1 place and it's easy to remember, also a bonus is to active the wah, you just have to press down on the pedal like an actual wah pedal.
