  • Inexpensive effects units

    I'm in the market for an inexpensive effects processor. I need one with reverbs and delays, everything else is icing on the cake. So far I have found the following more or less interesting units for under $150:

    loose boxes:
    Alesis picoVerb $79
    Alesis nanoVerb $99
    ART MR-1 $99 or so
    Alto alphaVerb $99 or so

    rack gear:
    Fostex DE-10 $129
    Nady SDP-20 $129
    Behringer Virtualizer Pro 2024P $129
    Alto betaVerb $145

    There are older things one can pick up on ebay, and there are some other boxes that didn't seem so interesting. I don't want a pedal.

    The only ones I have seen reviews for are the Alesis units, the Alto alphaVerb and the Behringer.

    At the moment I'm leaning towards rack gear because I can imagine a time when I'd want some other units as well, so might as well put them in the same rack.

    Anyone know anything about the Fostex, the Nady or the betaverb?

    Check out the Lexicon MPX100. You can find them on ebay for pretty cheap. Also you can go into a Guitar Center these days and get a TC Electronics M300 for $199. This is a great box!!
