Best Multi-Effects Pedals

Looking for the best multi-effects pedal? There is no one-size-fits-all multi-effects pedal for every musician, but the following list contains some of the multi-effects pedals we consider to be outstanding.

Digitech Element and Element XP

The DigiTech Element and Element XP are two of DigiTech’s more recent offerings that are both affordable and versatile. Both these pedals are jam packed with hundreds of effects and amp and cabinet modulations, and come complete with a built in tuner and drum machine. The only difference between the two is that the Element XP comes with an expression pedal and four additional expression-based effects.

Zoom G5

The Zoom G5 builds on the success of its predecessor, the G3, to offer an unparalleled array of effects, amp models and cool additional features like a built-in looper. It’s also fairly cheap, so it’s an endearing prospect for those new to the world of multi-effects and people looking to upgrade their old units. In essence, it provides 297 different pedalboards in one solid unit – enough for a different effects setup for every single song in your setlist with hundreds of slots to spare.

Line 6 POD HD500

The POD HD500 is Line 6’s new favorite toy. The unit packs in all of the features from the 300 and 400 models, as well as boosting the storage space and the potential for hands-free control. It increases the number of simultaneous effects you’re permitted to include, and removes the irritating limitations that prevented you from mixing effects however you like on the 300 and 400.

Boss GT-100

The GT-10 is a legendary beast. Boss has a reputation of producing top-quality effects units, and the GT-100 is their new go-to-guy. It’s an updated version of the GT-10, and aims to become the new king of multi-effects. From a purely financial perspective, putting out a new effects pedal regularly makes a lot of sense. People are reminded of the things they love about their favourite pedals and eagerly order the new unit for even the most trivial of upgrades.

Line 6 M9 Stompbox Modeler

As multi-effects units get more and more powerful, behemoth devices like the Line 6 M13 offer 109 different stompboxes with 15 footswitches to operate them. The only problems with the M13 (in a practical, real-world sense) are the cost and the mammoth size, so Line 6 released the M9, a smaller version of the same unit. They’ve crammed the same 109 effects into it and it still has a fairly formidable seven foot-switches on board, and its reduced price-tag makes it more appealing to less serious players.

Line 6 M13 Stompbox Modeler

The Line 6 M13 is the monolithic, monster sibling of the more compact M9 and M5 units. It’s packed with an almost excessive fifteen footswitches, four LCD display screens and 24 dials, but it’s a true beast at fifteen inches wide, almost a foot deep and ten pounds in weight.

Digitech RP500

Digitech’s RP-500 is the second-largest member of the RP series, making it a definite option for players looking for something to use as a gigging companion. Digitech’s smaller units generally fall a little short of being up to the task, but they get pretty much everything else right. The extra size looks set to be the RP-500’s savior, allowing it to offer everything on the smaller units with the added bonus of genuine hands-free capabilities. But does it deliver?
