DigiTech: RP300A

Purchased from: http://www.thomann.de/

Sound — 10
I use a Marshall 40W value-amp and an Epiphone Les Paul Custom with the DigiTech RP300A. It gives you a whole load of useful functions such as Jam-Along, which allows you to play along to music, and Learn-A-Lick which allows you to take a 10 second long part from any song and slow it down to upto 1/4 of its original speed. This is great for learning fast solos, or tabbing as it allows you to keep up and get faster. It also slows down without any change in pitch which is important. A very usefal pedal allows you to have wah-wah mode, which you can have great fun with. The RP300A also combines 12 tones, and 26 fully programmable studio quality effects (up to 12 at once). 5 knobs, allows 5 adjustible parameters.

Overall Impression — 10
The pedal covers all styles of music making it a universal pedal for all styles. I play mostly rock, with works great. It produces more rock kind of sounds than the amp alone could ever do. If it got trashed, yes I would buy the same one again. I compared this to all other makes and models coming to the conlusion that for the money it was not to be missed. You can find it now for 112 at the same place I purchased it for. A great accessory to have.

Reliability & Durability — 8
It is a great pedal, quite firmly built, with a nice pedal which works very well but I doubt this could take quite so much abuse. I would quite happily take this to a gig as long as I don't trample on it or abuse it too much.

Ease of Use — 8
It takes a while to get used to how to get hold of the sound you want, but once you get going any sound you want, you can get. As it comes with 80 pre-sets, 40 artists and 40 factorie, you don't really need to make your own really. The manual talks you through anything you want to do with it, so it is all easily done.
