RP50 (discontinued)

  • Rp50_small

Meet the incredibly feature-packed RP50. Our engineers built the RP50 with the great tone and effects you expect from DigiTech®, including award-winning amp, cabinet and pick-up modeling and an arsenal of studio-quality effects. They didn't skimp on the processing either. The RP50 uses our AudioDNA™ DSP chip to ensure that both modeling and effects are world-class. Plus 24-bit A/D/A conversion so that no frequency response is lost between inputs and outputs.

And when we weren't looking, our engineers even snuck in a drum machine with 30 patterns and an easy-to-use 13-LED array tuner. Then we made sure that the RP50's user interface was so simple a drummer could operate it (well most drummers, anyway).

If you've drooled over our bigger RP Series models but didn't have that much cash in your jeans, get on down to your DigiTech dealer and score an RP50.
