I just sent back the Digitech BP200 to American Musical supply and am getting the Zoom 708 II. Call me wishy washy, but I had to change my mind. I had the opportunity to try both of these (BP200 and 708II) a little more extensively and now I have to give the 708II my endorsement, not that that means anything to anyone, but the 708II has more features than the BP200, more effects and a far better rythym trainer. I like the Amp and cabinet models better on the 708II as well. It is a bit less user freindly but that just means I will have to get into the manual deeper. It also has a sampler which the BP200 does not have, I believe you also have the ability to record a sample of a song and slow it down some without changing the pitch which can be nice if you play by ear the way I do. There are also Smart media cards which you can purchase for it that allow you to download and save patches and also save patches and samples of your own. I love the fact that the 708II has an on/off switch which is something the BP200 is lacking and in my opinion beats the heck out of unpluging and pluging in the cord everytime you use it. I still don't like that it is made of plastic but heck I do not plan on jumping up and down on this thing anyway. It would be nice if they would throw in the AC adapter but you don't have a choice to use batteries with the BP200 because plugging it in is your only option. Well thats my two cents, hope it helps any of you who are pondering these effects pedals make a decision.
