Ok so here's the thing: I lived in holland for a few months, I'm going back soon.. but my effects pedal is breaking (I have the RP90).

I'm considering getting the Podx3 which is like 400 euro...to take home... but the other alternative is like the Rp 355 which is like 230 euro...

With these in mind, what do you guys think would be best? pro's con's? strenghts and weaknesses?

I didn't tried the Digitech, but it seems good for the money, you get interface with Cubase LE4 even.. On the other hand, POD seems like a more stable solution, although it is not in pedal form. Not really sure, I think you will be satisfied with Digitech too if you aren't too picky regarding your sound. Both of these devices are strictly for home practice/recording.

POD X3 is not a pedal, unless you plan on getting the X3 Live version, while RP90 & 355 are both pedals. That's important if you need to switch patches/effects in the middle of a song.

Both X3 & 355 can be used to record through USB.

If don't need/care about recording then I'd recommend a BOSS ME-70. It's a lovely unit. I like it better than X3 to practice because it's so simple, but it doesn't record through USB.


If you are going to record I don't know how good the 355 is, but X3 works great. Even if you get the X3 Bean (not pedal) you can get a pedal latern on which connects to it and allows you to change patches/effects etc. Or get the X3 Live if you prefer to have it all in a compact pedalboard.

Here are a couple mini reviews I recently wrote:
