  • Digitech DHP-55 > Digitech Valve FX

    I had no idea they made one that sounded as good as the 55...... I thought the VFX was way better than the G-Major and this just blows them both away. I'm still scratching the surface. Clips soon.

      Congrads, and welcome to the family!

      I remember the first day I got mine...heh, I spent hours it seemed just playing around with the 'String Pad' preset. Grab ya a volume pedal and run it into the CC pedal jack for some killer realtime control.

      Just curious, what firmware version is it running? Anything v2.00 and higher is golden. Enjoy!

        Yup it's version 2.04.
        I gotta read the manual now.

          I the ValveFX.

          The DHP sounds like a very cool unit.

          Congrats on the find.

                  Does anyone here know of a source for a firmware update for the DHP-55? I just picked this one up at Guitar Center and it still has version 1.04. I contacted Digitech and they replied that they no longer had any firmware chips available. I am just hoping that someone knows of a source for this...

                  Thanks

                    I got mine from a ebay store. To tell you the truth it was a horrible 3 month long experience, but was a necessary evil in the end because the firmware upgrade was completely worth it.

                        I purchased my dhp 55 new in about 93-94 and barely used it. price was $750. Now, I want to run my mic from the Motu ultralite to the 55 and back to the motu inputs & I need some help with the cabling.

                        Any suggestions?

                          Hey Billy,

                          If it's just sitting there, I'll take it off your hands if you like

                          Seriously, let me know if you'd like to unload it.

                            I've got both the DHP55 and the SGS2112 and while they're certainly not the absolute best units out there, I think they're damn good and perfectly capable of getting you an excellent tone (and fx) if you know what you're doing programming them.

                            I almost sold my DHP55 a couple months ago, but backed down when I started thinking about what it was capable of.
