  1. Depends on what you need it for. If you want a Marshall sound for your solid-state power amp or head, then it's a darned good buy. If you want to lay that fabled tone down on tape, it's not gonna happen with the 9001, unless you're willing to turn it up and mike the cabs.

    ART DR-X

    I could not recommend ART to anyone, for any purpose. If you should ever encounter a piece of ART gear, do not allow it to come within several meters of any existing, quality gear, or it will likely cause major electronic malfunctions by osmosis. I am convinced that my DR-X is somehow responsible for my inability to have a stable and satisfying relationship with members of the opposite sex. I would hurl the ghastly waste of printed circuit board and steel from my balcony in a fit of rage, but I'm afraid that some small child might pick it up and send it in to ART for repairs, thus passing the
  3. This is a good entry-level effects unit. I believe it's not in production anymore, so you can probably get one used. It's good for live applications, because, let's face it, the sound quality doesn't have to be perfect. I wouldn't haul an Eventide to a smoky club even if I could afford to. For recording, it's usable, but I'd recommend getting my distortions and reverbs elsewhere.
  4. As a direct recording device, it blows away my Marshall preamp's speaker simulator. For distortion, it dusts off my Marshall, my Randall head, my DOD box, my Boss ME-6, and my Peavey 212. If I could change anything about it, I'd include a power supply, as its requirements are a little choosy, and I'd put a switch in to bypass the microphone simulator. I think it'd sound a little better that way when used as a preamp. This thing is great for the money. I'd buy it again, no doubt about it.
