The Digitech RP500
The simplicity of a Stompbox ~ The control of an Effects Switching System. The key elements to the RP500's control are the unique Amp/Cabinet Bypass function in conjunction with the Pedalboard mode. The Amp/Cabinet Bypass defeats internal amplifiers and cabinets, leaving only stompboxes and effects in your signal chain all with the press of a single button. The Pedalboard mode lets you turn on and off individual stompboxes and effects using pedals 1-5. Control your sound like the pros, personalized to your playing style. The RP500 is manufactured by Digitech in Utah in the United States of America.
The Jimi Hendrix Wah Wah Pedal
No guitarist in history is more synonymous with
killer wah playing than Jimi Hendrix.
This is the original 1960's design, modified to Jimi's specs to deliver a fatter, more open sound by lowering the effects frequency range. The result is an incredibly throaty, expressive wah that will speak volumes for you. 100% pure Wah Wah tone. The Jimi Hendrix Wah Wah Pedal
is designed and manufactured by Dunlop
in California in the United States of America.
Joe Satriani was born July 15, 1956 in Westbury, New York in the United States of America.

|The Dave Matthews Band Made in the USA
The South African vocalist/guitarist Dave Matthews formed the Dave Matthews Band in Virginia in the early '90s. Maybe Dave wasn't born in the USA, but his music pays tribute to the melting pot that is the United States.

|The Last Word
...We are sending you this news from our store in Alabama. Here in the South we generally celebrate the 4th of July weekend with barbecue, family, friends and music. I am thankful to live in this country.
... I am proud to offer all of the products featured in this newsletter and to share that I have really
been enjoying the Digitech RP500.
It is simple to use, but the sound is incredibly deep and complex. There is a preset that sounds like a reverse-delay. I am working to expand my Hendrix repertoire, and this sound is obviously Hendrix inspired.
...It's cool to share the same birthday as Joe Satriani (one of my heroes), so I want to represent his guitar strap and picks
...As a thank you to all our customers who subscribe to this newsletter, please check out the special coupon below and save an extra 10% by shopping July 3-5.
