Effects Pedal Under $250?

I need a portable effects pedal for college. I'm wanting a John Petrucci or Marco Sfolgi Sound. I won't have an amp. I'll only be listening through headphones.

I second this.

Also check out the Digitech RP355/255 or a zoom product. try 'em all, then decide!

under 200 to play in your dorm room? Pod is decent. However, Guitar Rig 4 micro smokes it. Look at youtube videos of it.

Have a look at the Rocktron stuff, too. There was a great video posted on youtube by a member here several weeks ago. Pretty impressive. Here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8amVwYj_iBA

Re: Effects Pedal Under $200?

Thanks for the Suggestions. I have the Rp250. It's good for practicing but it's horrible for recording and using headphones. I like the Utopia G100 suggestion the most, I might try one of those.

If you have a decent laptop, I second the idea of getting GuitarRig. No comparison to anything as headphone practice tool.

I have a macbook pro. The Guitar Rig 4 player software is free, but what do you recommend to connect my guitar to the computer?
