Re: New Lexicon Reverb...MPX 500

Hi Amos,

        I've got the MPX100, and it certainly has a lot of bang for the 
buck. You
can usually find them used on Ebay these days for $150 or so. The reverbs
are pretty nice in it, and there are a few that are outstanding. I don't
think of the MXP100 as having too much in the way of adjustability for the
reverbs, certainly not to the same level as the MPX1 or PCM70/80/90 series.

        I've played around with the PCM90, it seems like such a nice box, 
but at
such a tremendous cost. The
MPX-1 seems like a nice box, and the price continues to drop. I like the
idea of the MXP-1, but really have been looking for a dedicated reverb. The
main reverb I use is from my G-Force unit, that has very excellent reverbs
and I use the box for the quality of the sound. 

        You might also want to check out the new Roland reverb unit, the 
It's about $500 for the non-digital version and I think about $750 with the
digital I/O. I was checking that out at a local Guitar Center and that's a
very nice unit. It has a lot to offer if you want to use it live, since to
me, it seemed to be laid out very nicely to adjust various reverb
parameters. Of course, it's a Roland so you'd have to get past their
owner's manual!  :-o

        Good luck on your search, Amos.
