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.
