Digitech RP500 Integrated Effects Switching System. Make the complex simple. Pros use large effect switching systems to connect and make it simple to control large assortments of stompboxes, effects and amps. They need control over effects on/off state as well as the ability to completely change the effects in their "pedalboard" at the touch of a single button.

Stompbox feel. Pros like stompbox type metal switches due to their feel when pressed and simplicity of operation. On/Off, or program number is all they have time to worry about in a performance.

The Simplicity of a Stompbox. The Control of an Effect Switching System. The RP500 takes the complexity of an effect switching system and combines it with the simplicity of stompboxes. Professional tones are at your disposal, all easy controlled. Concentrate on performing.


Every guitar player is different from their core tone, how they achieve it, and how they control it on stage. Whether you get your tone from your amp and just need a few effects or get your tone from a single box the RP500 has the sounds and control over them that you need. Unlike multi-effects that take over your tone and limit your control, the RP500 is an effect switching system over internal stompboxes, effects, and amps.

Control your tones in Preset or Pedalboard mode. The Preset mode allows you to switch between saved presets and can drastically differ from one to another. The Pedalboard mode allows you to turn on an off individual effects and stompboxes with ease within a preset.

To top it off, the unique Amp/Cabinet Bypass mode defeats internal amplifiers and cabinets in the RP500 leaving you with just stompboxes and effects. Your RP500 is now the perfect collection of stompboxes and effects with unprecedented control to use with your distorted or clean amplifier. Augment and spice up your sound any way you'd like and retain the control you need with the RP500.

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

Please fill in the following form to request a price match.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

If we are unable to verify the previous condition, we will notify you that we require additional information to verify the Price Match request. Our goal is to make this policy simple and hassle-free. We are committed to responding to your requests quickly.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.

Please select your country/region

Choose the region you are shopping from to view products in your currency.
