    hey guys ,
    I have just joint this site.i am playing for bit more than 1 year now just got a yamaha pacifica 012.i want to go in for a processor now my budget is around 8k.
    there is no fixed type of music i play.mostly nirvana,deep purple,pinkfloid.audioslave,LP......mostly rock.
    pls let me know.i would like a processor which has a variety of effects which are great for playing lead and decent rythms.a good wah would really help.so i guess a expression pedal is required.

    1. Scroll down to the end of the page
    2. You will find some similar threads

    Now regarding the fact that you have fixed your budget @ 8000 you have these popular options (which others will definitly add to):
    1. Zoom 707
    2. Zoom GFX3
    3. Toneworks AX10G
    4. Digitech RP200A

    And now, Even I am confused.

    GFX-3 or the toneworks processor would be good choices.

    hey guys
    Thanks for the quick reply.rp200a is the one that i was thingking to go for as my friend has it and it is pretty good.it is cost around 8800rs.but i dont know much about the other models mentioned here are they in any way better than the rp200A if so let me know.
    they seem the same when u read about it.
    Is the expression pedal good in the rp200A and also does it have good effects for playing lead and have better sound quality ascompared to others.
    whats the difference between the rp200A and rp300A.

    Hey Chill,

    if possible then play thru each of these processors (u will come to know about the sound and quality)
    Play around with their preset patches (so that u will realise which one is easy to edit/tweak)

    Then decide

    I'm pretty sure it'll be better than most pedals at that cost. I models amps like the peavey 5150, marshall JCM800, Vox AC30, Roland Jazz chorus, Mesa boogie mark III,Fender Tweed Delux '53 and a Twin reverb and pedals like Boss MT-2,OD-1, Fuzz Face,Marshall Guv'nor Overdrive Pedal,MATCHLESS Hot Box and couple of zoom's own pedals.

    ^^^ All those amp models are there in Boss too...

    Anyways G1 is supposed to be really good.. HC reviews..

    dude why the hell do you go by the reviews on Harmony Central??? Complete noobs post those reviews. I suggest you look for Comparisons or articles by the editors and writers for Guitar Magazines. They are little more informed!!!

    @ Chintan : Only n00b's can tell best about the Customer Service and stufff\..

    I've read other sites as well.. G1 and G2 are good...

    chintan9 yay! i won the ipod!

    Dude noobs are usually first time buyers who have absolutely no experience in relatino to customer service and stuff. You need a seasoned buyer who can tell you for sure if the service offered is upto the mark or not. U get my point dont you.

    Umm..are all reviews at HC by noobs?...There are quite a few ppl claiming to be 20+ years pros out there...and there are noobs too..they mention it in the review..assuming they arent lying, there is a fairly equal no of noobs and experienced ppl ..
