Re: Reverb: Bang for Buck (Was: Percussive Loopers)

I think you'd like the Lexicon LXP 15.  My favorite reverb unit.  Pretty
deep reverb with many ways to tweek.

I have 2 of them.  Will sell one.  Let me know via email.

BTW, I think the TC M-One is a good buy for the money.  Something about the
verbs in the LXP, though.  Don't compare it to the MPX-100.  Different
animal.  I had the MPX-100 and dumped it - truly awful, IMO.
