Section One - Introduction
Getting Acquainted
Congratulations on your purchase of the RP1000. The RP1000 Integrated Effects Switching
System takes your tone to the next level giving you the control that you need over your
external amp and stompboxes while packing in the power of a multi-effects processor. Use the
RP1000 to control and spice up your tone without any compromises. The RP1000’s vast pallet
of stompboxes, effects, amps and cabinets allow you to get any sound imaginable and then some.
Easily dial up a sound using the Tone and Effects Library knobs. You will appreciate the tone and
dynamic interaction of each of the amps, stompboxes, and effects with your system. Add USB
support for computer recording and you have the RP1000: the key to unlock your creative
potential.
Included Items
Before you get started, please make sure that these things are in the box:
• RP1000
• Cubase LE 4 DVD
• PS0913B Power Supply
• Warranty Card
We took a lot of care when we put this product together. Everything should be included and in
perfect working order. If anything’s missing, contact the factory at once. Help us get to know
you by filling out the warranty card and sending it to us, or register online at www.digitech.com.
You’ll be glad you did if you have any questions about your RP1000 down the road.
About the RP1000
Do yourself a favor and read the next couple pages before you start playing with your new
RP1000. It’ll help you get the most out of it without having to read the whole manual.
Preset Mode and Pedalboard Mode
There are two different ways to use the footswitches with the presets: Preset Mode and Pedalboard Mode. Push the Pedalboard button (just to the right of the knobs below the Display) to
toggle between these two modes.
Preset Mode
In Preset mode (Pedalboard button is off), each of the 10 numbered footswitches loads a
preset, and you can’t turn individual models on or off with the footswitches. The Up/Down
footswitches select banks of 10 presets.
Pedalboard Mode
In Pedalboard mode, footswitches 1-5 select presets, and footswitches 6-10 act like pedals
on a pedalboard. That means you can turn the distortion, chorus, etc. on and off within each
preset. The first time you power up the RP1000 when you take it out of the box (or after
doing a factory restore), it’s in Pedalboard mode.
The RP1000 remembers which mode you’re in when you turn it off, and keeps it in that
mode when you turn it back on.
Bypass
You can bypass all the internal amps and effects in the RP1000 by stepping on the currently
active preset’s footswitch. In bypass mode, your guitar’s clean signal comes through without any
processing. To exit bypass mode and re-activate the preset you were in, just step the same footswitch again. To exit bypass mode and activate another preset, step on a different footswitch.
If you’re using the Amp Loop and/or the Stomp Loop when you go into bypass mode, any devices connected to the Amp Loop and Stomp Loop are still active. So you can use bypass to kill
all the effects in the RP1000 without bypassing your amp/preamp connected to the Amp Loop.
1
Amp/Cabinet Bypass
You can also turn off the internal amps and cabinets for all the presets in the RP1000. This is
really useful when you just want to add effects processing to your own core amplifier sound. So
basically the RP1000 becomes a straight multi-effects box when you do this, and only Wah, Compressor, Distortion, Equalizer, Noise Gate, Chorus/FX, Delay, and Reverb are used.
To bypass amp/cabinet modeling in all presets, press the Amp/Cabinet Bypass button. When
that button is lit, amp/cabinet modeling is bypassed in all presets.
You can use amp/cabinet bypass in Preset or Pedalboard mode.
Tuner
The RP1000’s built-in tuner lets you quickly and easily tune your guitar, even on a dark stage.
Just press and hold the currently active preset’s Footswitch for 2 seconds. The Display briefly
shows bypass then tuner to let you know you’re in Tuner mode. To begin tuning, play a note
on your guitar (a harmonic at the 12th fret usually works best). The Numeric Display shows
the note being played. Arrows on the right mean the note is sharp and should be tuned down.
Arrows on the left mean the note is flat and should be tuned up. A left and a right arrow in the
center mean the note is in tune. The Expression Pedal controls the guitar volume while tuning.
Exit tuner mode by pressing any Footswitch.
Left and right arrows
in the center indicate
note is in tune
Note being played
A
If you use an alternate tuning, like down a half-step or drop D, you can still use the tuner as if
you were in standard tuning. Just go into Tuner mode and change your tuning reference. The
default setting is standard tuning, where A=440 Hz (displayed as A=440). But when you’re in
Tuner mode, you can rotate Knob 1 to pick an alternate tuning. These include A = A , A =
G, A = G , and tuning references A=427 - A=453.
Tone Library (Knob 1)
This is one of the RP1000’s coolest features. In Pedalboard and Preset modes, you turn this knob
to pick from a list of amp tones like Blues or Metal or Country. Each one has different Compressor, Distortion, Amp/Cabinet type, EQ, and Noise Gate settings, but you don’t have to mess
with any of those settings if you don’t want to, they just load up automatically when you pick
a tone from the library. If you’re into it, you can go ahead and refine the sound by editing the
preset (see Editing/Creating Presets on page 15), but the thing is you don’t have to. The Tone Library doesn’t change the Chorus/FX, Delay or Reverb, so you can experiment with different amp
styles quickly with the current effect chain. When in Amp/Cabinet Bypass Mode, the amplifiers
are bypassed, so only the distortion and overdrive stompboxes are providing distortion.
Effects Library (Knob 2)
This knob works hand-in-hand with the Tone Library knob. In Pedalboard and Preset modes, this
knob selects from a variety of post-amplifier effect chains (Chorus, Chorus + Delay, Delay + Reverb, etc.). And just like with the Tone library, you can edit the preset if you want to (see Editing/
Creating Presets on page 15), but you don’t have to. Changing between different Effects Library
selections doesn’t change the Compressor, Distortion, Amp/Cabinet types, EQ, and Noise Gate
settings, so you can experiment with different effect chains quickly with the current amp tone.
Effects Level (Knob 3)
In Pedalboard and Preset modes, this knob changes the relative level of the post-amp effects
(Chorus/FX, Delay, and Reverb). It’s like an effects mix control, where turning it clockwise
increases the level of these effects and turning it counter-clockwise decreases the level of these
effects.
2
Amp Gain/Effect Parameter (Knob 4)
This knob adjusts the Gain (distortion) for the selected Amp (not available for Acoustic) and is
also used to adjust parameters of other effects in the matrix. The amplifier and cabinets can’t be
adjusted when the Amp/Cabinet Bypass button is enabled.
Amp Level/Effect Parameter (Knob 5)
This knob adjusts the Level (volume) of the selected amp and adjusts other effect parameters in
the matrix. Amp Level can’t be adjusted when the Amp/Cabinet Bypass button is enabled.
Master Level (Knob 6)
This knob controls the overall output volume of all of the RP1000’s presets and adjusts other
effect parameters in the matrix.
X-EditTM Editor/Librarian
You can edit your RP1000 with your computer, using the X-EditTM Editor/Librarian, which you
can download from www.digitech.com.
Presets
Presets are named and numbered locations of programmed sounds which reside in the RP1000
(in case you didn’t know). You load Presets with the Footswitches (see Preset Mode and Pedalboard Mode on page 14 for more information about that). The active effects in each preset are
indicated by lighted LEDs in the Effect Matrix, and if you’re in Pedalboard mode, the LEDs over
footswitches 6-10 show you which of those effects are on or off. The RP1000 comes with 100
User presets (1-00) and 100 Factory presets (F1-F00). You can save changes to the User presets,
but not the Factory presets. From the factory, the 100 User presets are exact duplicates of the
100 Factory presets. That way you can create your own presets without losing the sounds that
came with the RP1000.

Getting Started
Making Connections
There are lots of ways to connect the RP1000 to amps, effects, mixers, and other equipment.
Before connecting the RP1000 to anything, make sure both your amp and the RP1000 are turned
off.
Amp/Cabinet Bypass
The RP1000 lets you bypass its amp and cabinet tones so you can apply its effects to your own
amp/cabinet tone. To bypass the RP1000 amp and cabinet tones in all presets, push the Amp/
Cabinet Bypass button so it’s lit. To utilize the RP1000 amp and cabinet tones, push the Amp/
Cabinet Bypass button so it’s not lit.
Amp Loop
The RP1000’s Amp Loop lets you use an external amplifier or preamp with the RP1000’s signal
path instead of the RP1000’s internal amps and cabinets. You can turn on the Amp Loop with the
Amp Loop button on the left side of the matrix. With this button enabled, the external amp or
preamp is placed in the signal path around internal amps and cabinets, so the internal amps and
cabinets are totally bypassed when the Amp Loop is engaged. To enable the Amp Loop, follow
these steps:
1.
2.
Press the Amp Loop button on the left side of the effects matrix. When the LED on the
Amp Loop button is lit, the Amp Loop is enabled and the connected device is now in the
RP1000’s effects chain. Internal Amp/Cabinets are basically bypassed when the Amp Loop is
enabled.
Press the Amp Loop button again to turn off the Amp Loop. Internal Amp/Cabinets are
now again active in the RP1000’s effects chain and the external device is bypassed.*

Store your footswitch assignment to your preset.
*Note: If the Amp/Cabinet Bypass button is enabled, internal amp and cabinet effects are
bypassed in all presets regardless of whether the Amp Loop is disabled.
Also, if you attempt to enable the Amp Loop without connections being made, the display will
briefly read no Loop indicating there are no connections made to the Amp Loop and the loop
will not enable.
Stomp Loop
The RP1000 also has a stompbox effects loop (Stomp Loop). This loop lets you use an external
effects device or effects chain with the RP1000’s signal path. The Stomp Loop has a dedicated
Stomp Loop footswitch that enables and disables this loop during performance.
The Stomp Loop has the option of being inserted into two different positions in the RP1000’s
signal path: Pre Amp, or Post Amp. This lets you pick where to place external effects in the loop.

Section Two - Editing Functions
Preset Mode and Pedalboard Mode
There are two different ways to use the footswitches with the presets: Preset Mode and Pedalboard Mode. Push the Pedalboard button (just to the right of the knobs below the Display) to
toggle between these two modes.
Preset Mode
In Preset mode, each of the 10 numbered footswitches loads a preset, and you can’t turn
individual models on or off with the footswitches. The Up/Down footswitches select banks
of 10 presets.
Pedalboard Mode
In Pedalboard mode, footswitches 1-5 select presets, and footswitches 6-10 act like pedals
on a pedalboard. That means you can turn the distortion, chorus, etc. on and off within each
preset. The first time you power up the RP1000 when you take it out of the box (or after
doing a factory restore), it’s in Pedalboard mode.
The RP1000 remembers which mode you’re in when you turn it off, and keeps it in that mode
when you turn it back on.
14
Editing/Creating Presets
The easiest way to start editing presets is with the Tone Library and Effects Library knobs.
Try out some of the tones in the Tone Library and then try out some effects setups with
the Effects Library knob. Use the Effects Level Knob to increase or decrease the overall
Chorus/FX, Delay and Reverb levels if desired. Once you find a tone that’s pretty close to what
you want, use the Edit buttons to navigate through the individual effects to make some adjustments. The steps below go into more detail about how this works.
1. Select a tone
with the
Tone Library knob
2. Select an effect
3. Adjust the
or effects chain with the effects level with the
Effects Library knob
Effects Level knob
To edit and create a preset:
1. Use the Up, Down and numbered Footswitches to select the preset you wish to edit.
2. If you find a preset close to what you want, you can begin editing the effect parameters by
pressing the Edit Up/Down buttons and selecting the Effect row you want to edit.
3. If you are trying to find something different from the existing presets, begin by using the
Tone Library, Effects Library and Effects Level knobs to get close to a sound you
want.
4. Press the Edit Up/Down buttons to begin selecting the individual Effects rows to edit
their parameters.
5. To bypass or enable an Effect row, press the Tone Library knob.
6. Use the Knobs 2-6 to modify the effect parameter settings.
Note: Anytime a stored value within a preset is changed, the Store button LED lights up. This
indicates that you need to store the changes. Changing presets, or turning the power off before
storing any changes, erases any changes made and the RP1000 will revert to the stored values
for the preset.
Also, if you are using the RP1000 with the Amp/Cabinet Bypass button enabled (effects only),
Tone Libraries that use amps only will not provide distortion or tone changes since amps and
cabinets are globally disabled.
Editing Amp/Cabinet Models
Each RP1000 preset has a ton of world class amp and cabinet models to choose from. To edit
amp and cabinet models, follow these steps:
1. Press the Edit Down button until the Amp/Cabinet row is selected. The row’s LED
should be lit and the current amp model should be shown in the display.
2. Turn Knob 1 to select from the different amp models.
3. Press Knob 1. The current cabinet model will now be displayed. Turn Knob 1 to select
from the different cabinet models. Pressing Knob 1 again will return you to the amp model
display
4. To bypass amp/cabinet models in a preset, turn Knob 1, fully clockwise until direct appears in the RP1000’s main display, or enable the Amp/Cabinet Bypass button.
Amp/Cabinet Bypass
The RP1000 has the unique feature of being able to turn off amp and cabinet modeling globally in
all presets. This feature is extremely useful when you just want to add effects processing to your
own core amplifier sound. The RP1000 basically becomes a straight multi-effects box where only
Wah, Compressor, Distortion, Equalizer, Noise Gate, Chorus/FX, Delay, Reverb and any effects
connected to the Stomp Loop are the only effects being used.
15
To bypass amp/cabinet modeling in all presets, press the Amp/Cabinet Bypass button. When it is
lit, amp/cabinet modeling is bypassed in all presets.
Amp/Cabinet Bypass can be used in either Preset or Pedalboard mode.
Storing/Copying/Naming a Preset
When you’re done editing a preset, you should store your settings to any of the 100 User preset
locations (presets 1-00). The following steps tell you how to store changes to a preset or copy a
preset to a different location:
1.
2.
Press the Store button once. The Store button LED blinks and the first character in the
Display flashes, indicating that you can now name your custom creation.
Use Knob 1 to select the alpha-numeric character and Knob 2 to select the next character location.
1. Press Store;
characters in Display
flash individually
2. Use Knobs to
name Preset
3.
4.
Once the desired name is shown in the display, press the Store button again to enter the
second stage of the storing process. The red Display begins to flash.
Select the User preset location where your new sound will reside using the Up and Down
Footswitches. The displays show the preset name and User preset number about to be
overwritten.
3. Press Store again;
Preset number flashes
4. Select destination
with UP and DOWN
Footswitches
5.
Press the Store button again to save the changes.
The procedure for copying one preset to another preset location is the same. Use the Footswitches to select the preset that you want to copy, then follow steps 1-4 for storing a preset
as described above. Press either Edit button at any time to abort the Store procedure.

Section Three - Effects and Parameters
About the Effects
The RP1000 is like a dream collection of vintage and contemporary amplifiers with several pedalboards full of classic, modern, and boutique stompboxes all in a single programmable, portable
package. With stompboxes, the order in which they are connected affects the overall sound.
The RP1000 has placed the Amps and Effects in an order for optimum results. The following
diagram shows the order in which they are connected.

Effect Definitions
Each Amp and Effect within the RP1000 can be programmed to suit your personal taste and
application. Understanding how these components alter the sound, and how each parameter
alters the effect, will help you get the sound you are looking for. The following pages talk about
the RP1000’s amps, cabinets, and effects and what each effect and parameter does. For more information about each effect, like how it’s used by some musicians, check out the Effects Descriptions section on page 37.
Wah
Wah is an effect controlled by an Expression Pedal making the guitar sound as if it’s saying
“Wah.”
Wahs - Knob 1 selects the Wah type. Values include: CRY wah (Cry Wah is a traditional sounding Wah), clydewah based on a Vox® Clyde McCoyTM Wah), and FULlRaNG
(DigiTech® Full Range Wah sweeps the entire spectrum of audible frequencies). Press this
knob to turn Wah on and off.
Wah Level - Knob 2 adjusts the Wah Level. Ranges from 0dB to +12dB.
Compressor
A Compressor is used to increase sustain, tighten up guitars, and prevent the signal from clipping the input of other effects. It sets a maximum boundary for the strength of a signal.
Comp - Knob 1 selects one of three Compressors: DIGiCoMP (DigiTech® Compressor),
CS COMP (Based on a Boss® CS-2 Compressor/Sustainer), or DYNoCOMP (Based on an
MXR® Dynacomp). Press this knob to turn the selected Compressor on and off.

Effects on and off. Only one of the effects in this row can be used at a time. After selecting the
type of effect in this module, Knobs 2-6 can then be used to adjust the individual parameters
associated with the selected effect. The following list describes each Effect and its parameters in
more detail:
Chorus
A Chorus adds a short delay to your signal. The delayed signal is modulated in and out of tune
and then mixed back with the original signal to create a thicker sound. The RP1000 includes
the following Chorus Effects: CECHoruS (based on the classic Boss® CE-2 Chorus), tcchoruS (based on the TC Electronic Chorus), CHORUS (DigiTech®’s Dual Chorus), glischrs
(DigiTech’s Glistening Chorus) and MultCHRS (DigiTech’s famous Multi Chorus®), voo doo
(based on the VooDoo Labs Analog Chorus), and clone (Based on the Electro Harmonix Small

Phaser
A phaser splits the incoming signal, and then changes the phasing of the signal. This signal is then
taken in and out of phase and mixed back in with the original signal. As the phasing changes, different frequencies get canceled resulting in a warm sort of twisting sound. The RP1000 includes
the following Phaser types: phaser (the DigiTech Phaser), trigphas (the DigiTech Triggered
Phaser), mx phasr (based on an MXR Phase 100), and eh phasr (based on an Electro-Harmonix Small Stone).
Knobs 2-6 have the following functions for the various Phaser Effects:

Pitch Shift (PitCH)
A Pitch Shifter copies the incoming signal, then shifts the pitch of the copy to a different note.
The shifted note is then mixed back with the original signal, sounding as if two guitars were playing different notes.
Pre/Post Amp - Knob 2 determines where the effect appears in the effects chain. Turn
counter-clockwise for Pre (appears before the Distortion effect), or clockwise for Post
(appears after the Noise Gate effect).
Shift Amount - Knob 3 selects the interval of the shifted pitch. Ranges from -24 (2
octaves below) to 24 (2 octaves above).
Mix - Knob 6 controls the mix level of the shifted pitch. Ranges from 0 to 99.
Detune (DetUNe)
A Detuner makes a copy of your incoming signal, takes the copied signal slightly out of tune from
the original, then mixes the two signals together. The result is a doubling type of effect as if two
guitars were playing the same part together.
Pre/Post Amp - Knob 2 determines where the effect appears in the effects chain. Turn
counter-clockwise for Pre (appears before the Distortion effect), or clockwise for Post
(appears after the Noise Gate effect).

Reverb
Using reverb in recorded program material gives the listener a sense that the material is being
performed in an actual room or hall. It is this similarity to actual acoustic spaces that makes
reverberation a useful tool in recorded music. The RP1000 features genuine Lexicon® reverbs,
whose rich, lush effects have been heard in countless songs, soundtracks, and live performances
for decades.
Reverb Types
Knob 1 selects the Reverb Effect or acoustic space. Press this knob to turn the Reverb

Section Four - Other Functions
Expression Pedal
You can link the Expression Pedal on the RP1000 to control the RP1000’s Volume, Wah,
Whammy™,YaYa™, or almost any of the RP1000’s other parameters in real time with your foot.
When a parameter has been linked to the Expression Pedal, you can also set the minimum (heel)
and maximum (toe) value for the range. When you push down hard on the toe of the Expression Pedal to activate the V-switch, the Expression Pedal switches between the linked parameter
and the Wah. To link a parameter to the Expression Pedal, follow these steps:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
Press either Edit button until the Expression row is selected (indicated by the LED lighting
on the Expression row).
Rotate Knob 1 until EXP PeDL appears in the Display.
Rotate Knob 2 until the desired parameter to be linked appears in the Display.
Rotate Knob 3 to select the minimum (heel) value the assigned parameter will reach with
the Expression Pedal in the toe up position.
Rotate Knob 4 to select the maximum (toe) value the assigned parameter will reach with
the Expression Pedal in the toe down position.
Store your Expression Pedal assignment to your preset. See page 16 for more information
on the storing procedure.
Footswitch Assign
You can link footswitches 6-10 to almost any of the RP1000’s parameters or to enable and disable the Amp Loop. From the factory, footswitches 6-10 are set to turn on and off the Compressor, Distortion, Chorus/FX, Delay, and Reverb respectively when the Pedalboard button is
enabled. If a parameter other than these on/off parameters is linked to these footswitches, you
can specify a minimum value (LED off) and maximum value (LED on) for the parameter. That way
you can toggle a parameter like chorus speed between two distinct values while you’re performing. Footswitch assignments are stored with the preset so they can be different for every preset.
To link a parameter to the footswitches 6-10, follow these steps:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
Press either Edit button until the Expression row is selected (indicated by the Expression
row’s LED lighting).
Rotate Knob 1 until FS6 ASN - FS10 ASN appears in the Display. This selects which
footswitch you are about to change the assignment for.
Rotate Knob 2 until the desired parameter to be linked appears in the Display.
Rotate Knob 3 to select the minimum value the assigned parameter will reach when the
footswitch is off (LED off).
Rotate Knob 4 to select the maximum value the assigned parameter will reach when the
footswitch is on (LED on).
Store your footswitch assignments to your preset.
LFOs
The RP1000 includes two assignable low frequency oscillators (LFO 1 and LFO 2) that you can
assign to any of the same parameters available for assignment to the Expression
Pedal. A low frequency oscillator automatically varies the value of the assigned parameter at
a steady rate. You can set the minimum and maximum value that each LFO will reach.
For instance, if the Amp Gain is assigned to LFO 1, and the minimum value is set to 1 and
the maximum value is set to 99, the RP1000 will automatically sweep the amount of
distortion from a clean sound to a distorted sound. You can also set the LFO speeds. In the
previous example, the LFO speed would determine the length of time it takes the LFO to sweep
from the clean to the distorted sound. To assign the LFOs in the RP1000, follow these steps:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Press the Edit button until the Expression row is selected (indicated by the LED lighting on
the Expression row).
Rotate Knob 1 to select one of the two LFO links, LFO 1 (LFO 1) or LFO 2 (LFO 2).
Rotate Knob 2 to select the parameter you want linked to the LFO 1 or LFO 2.
Rotate Knob 5 to select which waveform you want the LFO to use, Triangle (TRIanGle),
Sine (SINE), or Square (SQUARE).
Rotate Knob 6 to select the speed you want the parameter to be controlled at.
31
Wah Min/Max
You can set the Wah effect’s minimum and maximum values with the Expression row. To do so,
follow these steps:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Press the Edit button until the Expression row is selected (indicated by the LED lighting on
the Expression row).
Rotate Knob 1 to select wah pedl.
Rotate Knob 3 to adjust the Wah effect’s minimum value.
Rotate Knob 4 to adjust the Wah effect’s maximum value.
Expression Update
You can set up the RP1000’s Expression pedal to update its position each time you change
presets. Normally, the Expression pedal only updates its position on a preset change when it’s
linked to the Volume Pre or Volume Post parameter in a preset. This lets the Expression pedal
behave like a real volume pedal between preset changes. When Expression Update is enabled
(ON), the Expression pedal will update its position no matter what parameter it’s linked to, so it
has more of an “analog” feel like a typical standalone expression pedal.
To enable the Expression Update function, follow these steps:
1.
2.
3.
Press the Edit button until the Expression row is selected (indicated by the LED lighting on
the Expression row).
Rotate Knob 1 to select EXPUPDAT. The default setting is for Expression Update is OF.
Press Knob 1 to enable or disable Expression Update.
Expression Update affects all presets. You don’t have to save this change to each preset.
Factory Reset
This function resets the RP1000 to its original factory settings. This procedure erases all custom
User presets, and recalibrates the Expression Pedal.
ATTENTION: Performing this function will erase all user-programmed data. All
such data will be lost forever! Be sure you want to erase the memory and start
fresh before continuing with this procedure.
The procedure for performing a Factory Reset is as follows:
1.
2.
3.
Press and hold the Store button while powering up the RP1000.
When the display prompts you with FACt RST, release the Store button, which is now
flashing.
Press and hold the flashing Store button for 3 seconds until ReSTOReD appears in the
display and release. The Restore procedure takes several seconds to complete; during the
procedure, the display will count up. After the Restore procedure is complete, the Expression Pedal calibration procedure will begin.
Expression Pedal Calibration
The Expression Pedal on the RP1000 needs to be recalibrated for use after you do a factory
reset. This calibration procedure automatically starts after the factory reset procedure is completed. (You can also start the calibration procedure by pressing and holding the currently active
preset’s footswitch for about 5 seconds.) If the pedal’s calibration fails, or if the pedal does not
function properly, it can be re-calibrated using the calibration procedure. This will not erase the
User presets. The procedure for calibrating the expression pedal is as follows:
1.
2.
32
Press and hold the currently active preset’s footswitch until PEDL CAL appears in the
display (BYPASS, TUNER, and EXIT will be displayed before PEDL CAL is accessed, after
about 5 seconds.)
When the Display prompts you with TOE DowN, rock the Expression Pedal forward (toe
down) and press Footswitch 5.
3.
4.
5.
6.
When the Display prompts you with TOE UP, rock the Expression Pedal back (toe up)
and press Footswitch 5.
The Display now prompts you to calibrate the V-Switch sensitivity (VSWitchxxx), where
XXX is the current V-Switch threshold. Rock the Expression Pedal forward and press
firmly on the toe once to turn the V-Switch on (WAH ON), and again to turn the V-Switch off
(WAH OFF).
If the V-Switch is too sensitive, press the Up Footswitch to raise the threshold (range is
0-199). The Down Footswitch decreases sensitivity. Keep testing the V-Switch sensitivity
and adjust the threshold until it only engages when you want it to (too sensitive a setting
will lead to the V-Switch falsely triggering on or off when using the Expression Pedal).
When the V-Switch sensitivity is set to your satisfaction, press Footswitch 5 to exit.
Note: If the Display shows error, an error has occurred and steps 2 through 5 should be
repeated.
Preset Level
Each of the presets in the RP1000 can have a specified programmed level. To change the level of
a preset, follow these steps:
1.
2.
3.
From the preset name display, press the Edit Down button once. The Wah row will be lit.
Turn Knob 6 to change the Preset Level parameter.
Store these changes to the preset using the Store procedure if these changes are to be
recalled later.
Bypass
Any preset in the RP1000 can be bypassed using the preset footswitches. Bypass will defeat all
amp and effects modeling an output an unprocessed bypass signal. Bypass can be selected any
time during performance or editing.
1.
2.
Press the currently active preset’s footswitch. The display will read BYPASS and unprocessed guitar signal will be heard on all outputs.
Press any footswitch again to exit bypass and return to the last state (edited or unedited)
the RP1000 was in.
When a preset is bypassed, any devices connected to the Amp Loop and Stomp Loop will still be
active, meaning you can use bypass to kill all effects in the RP1000 without bypassing your core
tone.
Looper
The RP1000 includes a dedicated Looper phrase sampler that lets you record up to 20 seconds
of your guitar playing and play it back as an endless loop so you can solo over it, You can also
add more guitar work to the recorded loop (overdub). What’s great about the RP1000’s Looper
is that even while the Looper is playing back and/or recording you can select different presets or
turn on and off effects to add different sounds to your loop or overdubs.
You turn on the RP1000’s Looper with the Looper button in the matrix section and control it
with the Up/Down footswitches when the Looper is turned on. You can also connect an FS3X
footswitch to the Looper Control input jack on the rear panel for stand-alone remote control
of the Looper.
Normally, when the Looper is turned on, the Up/Down footswitches won’t change preset banks.
However, if an FS3X footswitch is connected to the Looper Control input on the rear panel of
the RP1000, the Looper will always be enabled, the Looper button will always be lit, and the
RP1000’s Up/Down footswitches will always change banks.
There are two ways to use the Looper: with a “quiet start” or “on the fly.” “Quiet start” means
you activate the Looper’s record feature when you’re not playing your guitar, and it automatically
starts recording when you start playing. “On the fly” means you activate the record feature while
you’re playing, and it starts recording as soon as you step on the Down footswitch.
33
To use the Looper with a quiet start, follow these steps:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
Press the Looper button to enable the Looper. The Looper button should now be lit.
None of the Record, Play, Overdub LEDs will be lit at this time.
To begin looping, press the Down footswitch. The Record LED on the matrix will flash
red indicating the Looper is armed and ready to record but not actually recording yet.
To begin recording, just start playing. The Record LED will now light solid red indicating
recording is in progress.
To set the loop point, press the Down footswitch again. The loop point will be set and

To begin tuning, play a note on your guitar (a harmonic at the 12th fret usually works best).
The numeric display shows the note being played, and the alpha-numeric display indicates
whether the note is sharp or flat. Arrows to the left (<<<) indicate the note is sharp and
should be tuned down. Arrows to the right (>>>) indicate the note is flat and should be
tuned up. When your note is in tune, -><- is displayed.
To exit the Tuner, press any numbered footswitch.
While the tuner is selected, you can set your tuning reference with Knob 1. The default factory setting is A=440 Hz. The tuning references range from 427 Hz to 453 Hz (± 50 cents (1/2
semitone) from either direction of 440 Hz). Below 427 Hz, are alternate dropped tunings. The
alternate tunings are REF A(A=Ab), REF G(A=G), and REF G(A=Gb). The display window briefly
flashes the selected tuning preference.
USB Setup
The RP1000 features a USB jack which connects it to a computer. The USB jack serves two purposes: Streaming audio to and from a computer recording software application, and as a connection for use with the X-Edit editor librarian software (downloadable from www.digitech.com).
See www.digitech.com for free X-Edit and driver downloads.
Note: PC users must download and install the ASIO driver to use the included Cubase® LE4
recording software.
There are two parameters in the effects matrix for adjusting USB parameters; USB Record Level
and USB Playback Mix
USB Record Level – This option provides a digital level control for boosting or cutting the level
sent to your recording application. Range is -12dB to +24dB.
USB Playback Mix – This option controls the playback mix between RP1000 processing and USB
playback from your computer’s recording application. The range for this control is from USB
Mix 0% (all that is heard is the RP1000 processing, no playback) to USB = RP (both USB playback
35
and RP1000 have equal levels) to RP Mix 0% (all that is heard is the USB playback in the outputs,
no RP1000 processing).

Section Five - RP1000 Effects Descriptions
Wahs
Wah is an effect controlled by an Expression Pedal making the guitar sound as if it’s saying
“Wah.”
DigiTech® Wah
DigiTech’s Full range Wah sweeps the entire spectrum of audible frequencies giving you the most
range of tone from the wah pedal.
Dunlop® Crybaby™ Wah:
This Wah pedal is the more “traditional” sounding Wah pedal that you will have heard in the 60’s
to the 80’s guitar solos. This Wah sweeps the lower to mid range of the audible spectrum.
Vox® Clyde McCoy™ Wah
This Wah pedal was the “original” and was designed to try to emulate the sound of a muted
trumpet. Clyde McCoy was a trumpet player that had asked Vox for a device that could make an
instrument sound like his muted trumpet. This Wah has a “thinner” tone and sweeps more of the
upper end of the audible spectrum.
Compressors
A Compressor is used to increase sustain, tighten up guitars, and prevent the signal from clipping
the input of other effects. It sets a maximum boundary for the strength of a signal.
Boss® CS-2 Compressor/Sustainer
The CS-2 compresses high-input signals while boosting low-input signals, giving you smooth and
long sustain without degrading the quality of the original sound.
DigiTech Compressor
The DigiTech Compressor compresses high-input signals while boosting low-input signals, giving
you smooth and long sustain without degrading the quality of the original sound and also allows
you to adjust the tone of the compression.
MXR® Dynacomp
The MXR® Dynacomp will compress the high-input signals and boost the low-input signals
while adding its unique voicing that has become popular with many players for leads, clean
chicken picking, and simple boosts.
Noise Gates
A Noise Gate is used to control the volume of an audio signal. In its most simple form, a noise
gate allows a signal to pass through only when it is above a set threshold. When this happens, the
gate is ‘open’. If the signal falls below the threshold no signal is allowed to pass (or the signal is
substantially attenuated) and the gate is ‘closed’.
DigiTech Silencer Noise Gate
This noise gate allows you to reduce line noise or audio signal when that signal goes below the
set threshold. Depending on how you set the parameters (Threshold, Attack Time, Release, and
Attenuation) you can make the audio transition cut your signal at very low noise volumes or
high noise volumes.
DigiTech Auto Swell Gate:
This noise gate will also let you set the threshold of the noise floor but instead of a strict feel of
“opening and closing” the gate, you get more of an auto volume swell effect making it a smoother transition between the open and closed positions.
37
EQ
The RP1000 is equipped with a 3 band semi-parametric EQ which helps shape your tone with
Low, Mid, and High controls.
3 Band Semi-Parametric EQ
By adjusting the frequency and levels of each band, you can control how much or little of the
frequency range of 60 Hz to 8 kHz you want in your overall tone.
Chorus Stompbox Models
A Chorus adds a short delay to your signal. The delayed signal is modulated in and out of tune
and then mixed back with the original signal to create a thicker sound. The RP1000 includes the
following Chorus Effects: Boss® CE-2 Chorus, DigiTech® Dual Chorus, DigiTech Glistening Chorus, DigiTech Multi-Chorus, Electro Harmonix® Small Clone, TC Electronics Chorus, and Voodoo
Labs Analog Chorus.
Boss® CE-2 Chorus
A very simple but popular Chorus pedal. Its simplistic two knob design makes it easy to use
adjusting the Speed and Depth of the Chorus while keeping a nice warm tone.
DigiTech Dual Chorus:
A warm dual voice chorus that allows you to adjust the speed, depth, level, AND wave form.
DigiTech Glistening Chorus: A more simplistic Chorus giving you a warm Chorus tone like the
CE-2 but adding a 3rd knob allowing you to adjust the overall level as well.
DigiTech Multi-Chorus
DigiTech’s famous Multi-Chorus allows you to get an incredible warm Chorus tone using 16
voices that interact with each other in Stereo Mode giving you the most incredible unique Chorus tone you can imagine.
Electro Harmonix® Small Clone
A very lush, watery Chorus which can be heard on hits by bands including Nirvana. This Chorus
has a very “earthy” tone to it and definitely take your Chorus tone to a different place.
TC Electronics® Chorus
A Chorus pedal that was made for guitar but also used by Bass and keyboard players as well.
Many keyboardists use it to enhance their electric piano “Rhoads” sound. The speed knob controls the speed of the chorus or flanger sweeps. The width knob controls how much frequency
change the effect spans. The intensity controls how much of the effect is used.
Voodoo Labs Analog Chorus
A strikingly vocal with distinct organic tone Chorus pedal. It is capable of a wide range of
sounds from a thick analog doubling, to an ultra-lush chorus, and even a Leslie rotating speaker.
Flanger
A Flanger uses the same principle as a Chorus but uses a shorter delay time and adds regeneration (or repeats) to the modulating delay. This results in an exaggerated up and down sweeping
motion to the effect. The RP1000 includes the following Flanger Effects:
ADA Flanger, DigiTech Flanger, DigiTech Filter Flanger, DigiTech Triggered Flanger, Electro Harmonix® Electric Mistress, and the MXR® Flanger.
A/DA Flanger
A super quiet Flanger with plenty of headroom. Made popular by its ability to get thick and juicy
tones from using not only the standard knobs of the normal Flanger but also the Harmonic knob
which offers the user a slightly different timbre going from even to odd harmonics.
DigiTech Flanger
DigiTech’s own Flanger model! This gives you the Flnager effect and allows you to control the
standard Speed, Depth, Regeneration, and Level of the Flanger effect.
38
DigiTech® Filter Flanger
The DigiTech tone team expanded on the traditional flanger by adding a band pass filter in the
feedback path of the effect. Because of the filter, the filter flanger’s feedback affects only a set
amount of frequencies to generate a different flanger effect.
DigiTech Triggered Flanger
By setting the threshold sensitivity, you control when the Flanger starts sweeping, and by setting
the LFO Start knob, you control WHERE in the sweep it starts! Next you can adjust the speed
that it sweeps and the overall level of the Flanger effect!
Electro Harmonix® Electric Mistress
This Flanger has a unique tone giving it a sort of Chorus/Flanger mixed tone making it not as dry
as some of the other Flangers (but with a more pronounced sweep). Its easy to use with only 3
knobs (Color, Range, and Rate) which also makes it a little easier to dial in your tone quicker.
MXR® Flanger
A big rich and organic Flanger tone made popular by such people as Eddie Van Halen. The MXR®
flanger creates a variety of wild sounds from dynamic jet plane or cool space effects to short
delay, chorus and vibrato. Back off Width to zero to disengage auto-sweep, then use the Manual
knob to physically place the effect anywhere along the frequency spectrum. Manual knob selects
frequency center of effect when auto-sweep is disengaged Width knob at zero disengages autosweep, rotates clockwise to increase total phase sweep of effect Speed knob modulates rate of
effect Regen knob feeds effect back onto itself at adjustable intensity, increasing the total phase
effect.
Phasers
A phaser splits the incoming signal, and then changes the phasing of the signal. This signal is then
taken in and out of phase and mixed back in with the original signal. As the phasing changes, different frequencies get canceled resulting in a warm sort of twisting sound. The RP1000 includes
the following Phaser types: DigiTech Phaser, DigiTech Triggered Phaser, Electro-Harmonix® Small
Stone, and the MXR® Phase 100.
DigiTech Phaser
This Phaser will give you the standard Phaser tone and options for controlling it via the Speed,
Depth, Regeneration, and Level settings.
DigiTech Triggered Phaser
Like the Triggered Chorus,You can set the threshold of the sensitivity knob to state what volume
you would like the Phaser triggered. Then using the LFO Start knob, you can set where in the
range of the Phaser you would like it to start from.
Electro-Harmonix® Small Stone
The Small Stone’s full-bodied, 3-dimensional phasing adds a special swirl to every musical style.
Blues players dig its rapidly rotating speaker effect while Country players use it to add seasoning to their chicken’ pickin’. Metal-heads and Industrialists dig the Stone’s jet plane woosh. Its
simplistic 2 knob control panel (Rate and Color) make it easier to dial in a quick Phaser tone
that will be just right for you!
MXR® Phase 100
Another industry standard in Phase pedals with its own unique tones. It as well has a simplistic 2
knob control panel (Intensity and Speed). Along with the speed control that controls the speed
of the Phase sweep, there is the Intensity knob that selects four different intensities, defined as
preset waveform patterns. Between the intensity and speed settings, you’ll find quite a supply of
excellent sounds!
Pitch
The RP1000 comes equipped with effects to manipulate your pitch and do incredible things
with it like harmonize both intelligently and by using standard semitones, detune, and do cool
effects by raising and/or lowering your original notes from 2 octaves down to 2 octaves up! Pitch
pedals it is equipped with are: Boss® OC-2 Octaver, DigiTech Detune, DigiTech Harmony Pitch,
DigiTech Pitch Shift, and the ever popular DigiTech Whammy Pedal!!
39
Boss® OC-2 Octaver
Based on the Boss® OC-2 OctaverTM, this adds two signals to your original guitar signal. The
first is one octave below your guitar, and the second is two octaves below your guitar. Each additional signal has its own volume control.
DigiTech® Detune
A Detuner makes a copy of your incoming signal, takes the copied signal slightly out of tune from
the original, then mixes the two signals together. The result is a doubling type of effect as if two
guitars were playing the same part together.
DigiTech Harmony Pitch
Harmony Pitch Shifting makes a copy of the incoming signal, and then changes the pitch of the
copied note to a diatonically correct interval specified by the Amount parameter. A Harmony
Pitch Shifter sharpens or flattens the shifted pitch in order to keep the specified interval within
the selected key and scale creating a true harmony.
DigiTech Pitch Shift
A Pitch Shifter copies the incoming signal, then shifts the pitch of the copy to a different note.
The shifted note is then mixed back with the original signal, sounding as if two guitars were playing different notes.
DigiTech Whammy™
The DigiTech Whammy is an effect that uses an Expression Pedal to bend the pitch of the incoming signal, or add a bendable harmony with the original signal. As the Pedal is moved, the note
bends either up or down.
Vibrato / Rotary
DigiTech Rotary
The Rotary is an effect that produces the Doppler effect and volume change of a rotary speaker.
The sound is lush and full.
DigiTech Vibrato
The Vibrato produces volume and tone change that can be found on surf and country classics.
DigiTech Vibro / Pan
The Vibro/Pan not only changes volume but shifts it side to side. This effect is great for stereo
setups.
Unicord Uni-Vibe™
The Uni-Vibe creates a chorus type effect in tandem with a vibrato to produce a lush swirling
effect.
Tremolo
DigiTech Panner
Pans the sound from side to side. The speed controls how fast and the depth controls how much
of the signal is panned.
DigiTech Tremolo
The Tremolo is a volume changing effect that can be heard on surf and country classics.
DigiTech ScatterTrem
The ScatterTrem combines two tremolos that are “out of sync” to produce an unpredictable
scattered tremolo sound.
Fender® Opto Tremolo™
The sound of the Fender® Opto Tremolo is as classic as their amps. Both tone shift and volume
effects are produced to create this unique tone.
40
Vox® Bias Tremolo
Another way to achieve a tremolo effect is to alter the bias of the poweramp tubes. This Vox®
Bias Tremolo produces the volume and tone effects to create a tone heard on many famous British tunes.
Envelope / Special
DigiTech® Envelope Filter
An envelope filter is also called a “auto-wah” for its wah effect. The amount of wah is dependent
of the output volume of your guitar – he harder you play, the more wah you get. A definite BMovie soundtrack tone.
DigiTech Auto Yah™
If a wah, why not an effect that says “yah” when you use it? This is another take on the vowel
based effects but it is controlled the same way that the envelope filter is controlled.
DigiTech Sample & Hold
Using a changing filter, the Sample and Hold produces skipping tones
that can be heard in experimental and alternative music. Best used with distortion in front of the
effect.
DigiTech Step Filter
The Step Filter changes frequency in related patterns much like a sample and hold effect.
DigiTech Synth Talk™
Another DigiTech first, the Synth Talk™ makes your guitar sound like it’s talking due to vowel
like qualities.
DigiTech YaYa™
A descendent of a wah, the YaYa™ is a more complex circuit that produces a “ya” sound.
DOD® FX25 Envelope Filter
The DOD® FX25 is an classic analog envelope filter that can be found on many funk and alternative tracks. Used by both guitar and bass players. Try this one clean for a really funky sound.
Delays
Analog Delay
The analog delay produces delays that were derived from ”BBD” analog delay chips. The BBD
chips were the first ways to produce delay aside from the costly tape delays. The delay sound
was not HiFi but was reminiscent of the original signal and quickly became a cornerstone to
modern guitar sounds due to their warm qualities.
Boss® DM2 Analog Delay:
The DM2 is a classic and standard BBD analog delay that used 4,096 stages of delay. The frequency response and noise depended upon the delay time. The signal derogates with every repeat so
as the repeats are turned up, the signal becomes less and less recognizable and actually becomes
more of an “effect” than a delay.
Digital Delay
A digital delay can be called a perfect representation of your guitar’s signal. Desired for their brilliant qualities, digital delays have virtually no noise and a full frequency response.
Lo Fi Delay: The Lo Fi delay is an analog delay with a severely limited frequency response to
produce an even grungier delay effect.
Maestro EP-2 Tube Echoplex
The Echoplex is the standard to which all analog delays are judged. The Echoplex was the first
widely used tape delay and had a tone all of it’s own. The Echoplex can be heard on many rockabilly, surf, country and rock tracks.
41
Modulated Delay
A modulated delay is a digital delay with chorus added to the delays to produce a wider sounding stereo delay.
Pong Delay
A pong delay’s repeats jump from side to side and requires a stereo setup.
Reverse Delay: The Reverse Delay senses the guitar’s input signal and plays the delayed guitar
backwards once it is sampled. Reverse delay used to be a studio trick, now with modern technology it exists in a stompbox!
Tape Delay
The tape delay effect produces a warm tone by limiting the frequency response and adding the
distortion that exists in a tape delay.
2-Tap Delay
While most delays are derived from a signal delay with one end tap, the 2-Tap Delay uses a single
delay line but with two endpoints that are spaced about at different ratios. Use this effect to add
more of a rhythmic quality to your delays.
Reverbs
EMT® 240 Plate Reverb
The EMT Plate Reverb is the reverence reverb to which all studio reverbs are compared to.
Using a large sheet of metal, one end of the “plate” was excited by a transducer and the sound
would then travel through the plate to the other side where the delayed tone was received. The
frequency response and dynamics of the signal would change when traveling through the plate
creating a reverb effect.
Lexicon® Ambience
The Lexicon Ambience reverb is full, bright and produces ambience around or behind your guitar
signal.
Lexicon Hall
The largest of the Lexicon reverbs, the Hall produces lush reverbs with a swirling decay unlike
any other reverbs today.
Lexicon Room
A great effect to produce a small room, the Lexicon Room produces that reverb found in many
isolation rooms in recording studios today.
Lexicon Studio
Larger than the Room reverb, the Studio Reverb is the Lexicon studio standard reverb algorithm.
Spring based on a Fender® Twin Reverb™
The tone and reaction of the spring reverb is captured! Surf’s up, the best setting is at maximum
- Cowabunga.
Distortions
Distortion and overdrive pedals were designed to give your guitar tone gain before it reaches
your amp. Many heavily distorted pedals such as the DigiTech Grunge™ were designed to provide most or all of the gain and run through a cleaner amp. Overdrives are great for boosting the
gain of your guitar sound and driving an already distorted amp giving your total tone, more gain
and a heavier feel. Overdrives on their own and ran into clean amps provide a bluesy tone.
Arbiter® Fuzz Face™
The Dallas Arbiter Fuzz Face surfaced in 1966 and used germanium transistors to get it’s unique
fuzzy sound and inspired many other fuzz pedals to follow. The Fuzz Face produces a thick wall
of edgy distortion and a very full low end. Perfect for creating ‘60s or modern stonerrock tones.
42
Boss® DS-1™ Distortion
A truly classic distortion. A nice, common distortion that ranges in tone from rock to mild metal.
Use it to drive a distorted amp!
Boss MT-2 Metal Zone®
The Metal Zone will produce nearly any metal tone needed from tight, percussive Bay area
thrash to deep detuned grind core.
Boss OD-1 Overdrive
The OD-1 is perfect for just adding a little gain to your tone no matter what type of amp you
use. To produce a bluesy tone, use it with a clean combo. To drive your stack, crank the gain and
level.
Boss SD-1 Overdrive
With a little more gain than the OD-1, the SD-1 will drive any amp into another realm. If you’re
just looking for a good classic rock tone, this is it.
Demeter Fuzzulator
Enhancing the proper frequencies with a pre-emphasis tone circuit, the Fuzzulator produces
distortion that is unique and does not get muddy. It just gets better and the Fuzz is turned up.
DigiTech® Amp Driver
The Amp Driver distortion is designed to turn a regular distorted amp into a monster. The Amp
Driver not only distorts the guitar’s signal but also boosts frequencies around 600Hz. By emphasizing the frequencies around 600Hz amps can be driven harder and take on more of a metal
tone. A mean sound is not only how determined by how much gain you put in front of your amp,
but how hard you drive the amp and with what frequencies the amp is driven with.
DigiTech Death Metal™
Designed in 1992 to provide death metal musicians with a wall of sound, the Death Metal™
pedal does just that. Whether you play early ‘90s grindcore or modern death metal, the Death
Metal’s tone controls that are placed at the correct frequencies give you a multitude of sonic
options.
DigiTech Grunge®
In late 1991 as Grunge hit the radio the pedal was designed as the DOD FX69 Grunge. The
pedal was designed by a young engineer who played “punk” and was released as an experiment
to see what this “new type” of music was all about. Now a decade later, the Grunge is still a topseller. The Grunge produces tones from early famous Seattle sounds to borderline metal. Don’t
forget your flannel….
DigiTech Redline Modified Overdrive
Not your standard overdrive, the Redline takes overdrive to a place that never existed. The Redline’s circuit overdrives the guitar’s signal in a way that is not evenly clipped like the way a tube
amp distorts. Add extra gain and a thicker low end and the Redline was born.
DOD 250 Overdrive/Preamp
The DOD®250 is another classic overdrive. With no tone control to get in the way, the 250’s
beauty is just it’s pure overdrive.
DOD Classic Fuzz
A part of the original DOD FX family, the Classic Fuzz gained a following for its clearer voicing
as compared to many fuzz pedals.
DOD Gonkulator Ring Modulator
Meet the needs of many experimental guitarists, the Gonkulator was a silent hit only to become
a high cost interned item. The Gonkulator is a compination of a Grunge pedal and a ring modulator that produces distortion and mixes in bell-like ringing. The first pedal with a “suck” knob.
Electro-Harmonix® Big Muff Pi®
A requirement for any alternative player, the Big Muff Pi’s thick fuzz is unmistakable in grunge,
new wave and many punk hits.
43
Fulltone® OCD Overdrive
Straddling the border of overdrive and distortion, the OCD produces amazing harmonics and
drives any amp into oblivion. The overdrive is thicker than most yet clear letting every string and
note come through.
Guyatone® Overdrive OD-2
The OD-2 is yet a different flavor of overdrive. The OD-2’s is transparent and does not get in
the way when playing single notes or chords.
Ibanez® TS-9 Tube Screamer™
One of the most famous pedals ever created, the TS-9 has not only stood the test of time but
can be found on nearly every pedal board.
Ibanez TS-808 Tube Screamer™
The predecessor to the famed TS-9 the TS-808 has spawned a whole boutique market around
modifications to this classis design. If you want one of the standards in overdrive, this is it.
Modified Ibanez® TS-9
Take a TS-9, add more gain and modify the low end to produce a thicker, bluesier overdrive.
MXR® Distortion +
A classic pedal due to it’s simplicity. Just plug in an go. The Distortion + produces good honest
distortion, perfect for driving a distorted amp.
Pro Co RAT™
Want gain? Want more gain? The Rat was one of the first pedals to take the gain to another
dimension. The filter control gives the Rat it’s unique tones and flexibility. It is rumored that early
Bay area thrash bands used it in conjunction with a Marshall® JCM800 to achieve their heavy
tones.
Roger Mayer Octavia™
Designed in 1967, the Octavia was featured on “Purple Haze” and “Fire” by Jimi.
Voodoo® Lab Sparkle Drive®
The Sparkle Drive mixes a 808 tone with boosted clean to form a perfect device to drive amps.
Amps
’99 Carvin® Legacy VL-100
Steve Vai’s signature amp that he has been using since 1999. Custom tweaked tone to Steve’s
specifications featuring an EL-34 tube output stage. Very smooth for soloing.
‘57 Fender® Tweed Champ®
The Tweed Champ is a straight ahead, growly amp with that is best suited for blues and garage
music. The tone is nasely, distorts easy due to the low wattage but cuts through!
‘57 Fender Tweed Deluxe™
One of the most sought after amps ever made, this is a tone you can’t get enough of. This baby
shows off its glory when pushed to the limits.
‘59 Fender Tweed Bassman®
This classic really roars with lots of bottom end. Great for blues riffs but equally great for driving rock and roll rhythm guitar parts.
‘62 Fender Brownface Bassman®
From the era of the first tolex covered Fender® amps, this particular amp was used on the classic Hendrix song “Voodoo Child”.
‘65 Fender Blackface Twin Reverb®
The benchmark for twin speaker combos. This great amp is one of the most recognizable clean
tone on recordings for the last 40 years.
44
‘65 Fender® Blackface Deluxe Reverb®
The single speaker version of its bigger brother, this amp is equally at home for blues, country
and rock players.
’59 Gibson® GA-40
A very cool blues/rock amp in the ranks with the Deluxes but with a personality all its own.
‘69 Hiwatt® Custom 100 DR103
This superb rock and roll amp was the staple of Pete Townshend’s tone in the early /70s. A
monster that has loads of headroom, this is at its best when cranked up all the way and paired
with the Fane 4x12 cab.
’69 Laney™ Supergroup
The Supergroup was used most notably by Tony Iommi and was key to the sound of early Black
Sabbath records.
‘65 Marshall® JTM-45
Perhaps the turning point for blues and rock and roll, this amp set the course for the future of
Marshall® amps. It started the “crunch” revolution, turning up on classic songs from AC/DC and
most notably the Bluesbreakers “Beano” album featuring Eric Clapton.
‘68 Marshall 100 Watt Super Lead (plexi)
This is undoubtedly the amp that changed rock and roll. It is a benchmark for many of the greatest guitar sounds ever heard. From Hendrix to Van Halen, this amp is the real deal.
‘68 Marshall Jump Panel
This is the method to get the most saturation from the classic plexi. By jumping channel 1 into
channel 2, you get a bit more push over the top.
‘77 Marshall Master Volume
