    How is the DigiTech BP200 for a first effects multipedal...?
    I curently only have the POS orange boss distortion pedal and i cant stand it anymore. Would the DigiTech BP200 be ok or is there sumthin else around the same price range that would be better to buy?

    Honestly it's a great pedal.... I have had mine for about a year and a half.. never any problems.. and cool features......

    If you wanna save some $$$$ I am actually trying to sell mine so I can get rid of some GAS, and meet a need of a new amp..... asking $90 shipped to your door..... pm me if you are interested.... it's in great shape.... original box and owners manual....... and the price is somewhat flexible.....

    I actually really like mine despite a lot of the "features" being useless, to me. I only use a couple things on there but the ones I do use are pretty sweet and easy to customize. It'd be a good place to start. Be sure you can get a copy of the manual it comes with, it'll make it a lot easier to fiddle with in case the previous owner redid everything and saved all his/her own presets over the stock Digitech ones. It's cool, go for it.

    I think it's a horrible pedal if you are using the presets. The tones are just awful. Two thumbs down here.

    To be fair, I never tried dialing in my own settings so I can't disagree with those that have had success there.

    Yeah, it gets a lot better once you over-write the presets. They are pretty bad.

    I got to agree. I was pretty disappointed with the default sounds that it offered. It got better when I played around with it for a while but ultimatley I ended up returning it.

    Had it, used it twice, sold it.
    The bypass mode still just sucks the tone from your bass.

    It is a really good pedal. Just be weary of the AC adapter's durability and make your own presets. A presence control wouldnt have hurt to have but it's cool.
