I see you can't swing one without hitting a Digitech BP8. They are for sell everywhere, new and used for some decent bucks. Mostly they go for about $150 to $175. They do look a bit big and cumbersome. truthfully, I have never used any effects so this will be an adventure for me. My though was that a floor processor would be better than a rack mount since I will be using it on a big Ampeg combo rig as well as my SWR stack. I really want the best unit I can get for less that $300 so I'm up for some advice here. Compression would probably be the most common effect that I might need. Help me out here guys & gals.
