With the modern technology nowadays, it has become very common to play your guitar with an effect pedal and perhaps also an external amp. By pairing your trusty guitar with a decent effect pedal, you can greatly widen your creativity. You can craft your own signature sound. The possibility is next to infinity. Now, we have two guitar effect pedals that are both very popular on the market: Digitech RP500 and Boss ME 25. Between these two products, Digitech RP500 is a little bit more expensive than Boss ME 25. So, which one should you go with?
In terms of design, both models have been made to be very solid and rugged. They each sport a metal chassis that is certainly able to endure the harsh and heavy-duty usage of real life. Each of Digitech RP500 and Boss ME 25 also comes with a comprehensive control interface that aims to provide the easiest and quickest access to the built-in features. However, Boss ME 25 is indeed quite more compact than Digitech RP500. Boss ME 25 is not as wide and is very slim, as opposed to Digitech RP500’s wide and rather bulky body. This is, of course, because of the fewer built-in functions and the smaller display screen. While Digitech RP500 comes with a one-line alphanumeric LED display, Boss ME 25 only has a two-digit seven-segment LED display. Of course, Digitech RP500 then provides a more intuitive and convenient operation than Boss ME 25.
