Digitech RP500 Multi Effects Processor Open Box
  • Availability: This product is SOLD OUT and is no longer available!
  • Item Condition: Open Box

This is a repackaged item with full factory warranty. These items have been either opened or returned, then repackaged in a plain brown cardboard box with power supply and software. The plastic bags that the items come in inside the  box may have been ripped open or may be missing which is common in a return or demo model which these may have been. 

The story of why these are so inexpensive: A major chain store ordered a little over 20 of these from Digitech. Someone entered the order with an extra "zero" so a little over 200 of these shipped by mistake. Before the mistake was caught, the major chain had all ready put their price and inventory labels on all of them. Digitech picked up 200 or so of them and they were repacked in plain cardboard boxes as peeling off the labels turned out to be nearly impossible. They offered them to us at a deep discount to take them all in need of repackaging.  Of course we took them all as it allowed us to offer you the customer an amazing deal!  It was only a matter of ordering special boxes, inspecting and repackaging each one, and then sealing them in their new brown cardboard shipping box.  There were a handful that showed the inner plastic wrap being opened (which is this listing).   We suspect these were ones actually opened and possibly customer returns.  They still come with a full factory warranty, but at a fraction of the price.  

Digitechs RP500 boasts tons of models, effects, and performance-friendly features sure to make it the center of your guitar rig! A new Pedalboard mode makes the RP500 act like 5 separate stompboxes and effects, and a bypass mode lets you easily turn off all amp and cabinet sounds so you can focus on effects only. Built like a tank with 9 vaccum-style switches, and a convenient 10-character LED display, you also get a built-in expression pedal to take control of your sound. Packed with pro-rig sounds in one portable, affordable box, you won t believe how you ever played without your Digitech RP500!

New "Pedalboard" Mode

Digitech s RP500 includes a new Pedalboard mode. When activated, you can turn five effects on and off via the RP500 s convenient footswitches. Acting like a complete pedalboard in one convenient unit (with only one AC adaptor!), you can get your signature sound in a pinch with the RP500 - no more need to haul all of your gear to and from rehearsals.

Amp/Cabinet Bypass Mode

When used in tandem with Pedalboard mode, you can focus only on turning effects on and off, using the built-in expression pedal for dynamic, real-time control.
