Was thinking about getting a new effects processor for my electric guitar and wanted to get some input from you guys on your gear. I currently have the Digitech GSP-21 and its ok, but sometimes I feel that the menu is clunky and Ive yet to achieve a great distortion patch. I was looking into the newer Digitech models like the RP300 as they seam to be easier to program and it looks like you can actually download patches now and also get specific settings from guitar magazines for their featured songs. This ease of use sounds appealing and might get me back into playing more. What type of effects processors do you guys recommend under the $200-$300 range? Also, has anyone ever heard of the old Rat distortion pedals? A friend of mine used to have one back in the late 80's and I seam to remember it having a good distortion sound, but its been a long time.
