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

I'll be looking for a verb soon too, trying to get in the
$300-$400 range.  I've thought either the MPX200 or
Digitech S-200, which seems pretty similar.  Any experience
with the Digi box vs. the others?

One thing which looked interesting is that the Lexicon and
Digi verbs include a compressor.  How does this compare to
a dedicated compressor(or no compressor)?

Incidentally this is for hand drums and didgeridoo.  I have
a Nanoverb now, so I don't want another cheapie toy, but
I'm not a professional either, and it was some else who
had the unlimited budget.

Yours in rhythm,
