    I have a DP-4 unit I use basically for my drum reverbs it is an amazing piece of gear problem is that it is broke and the company which was bought out no longer does anything for it's customers
    so I am going to purchase a new reverb unit for
    drums the thing is I don't want owe on it for the next ten years like some units are but on the other hand i want some amazing sounding reverb
    if anyone has any suggestions other than a Larc 960 or System 6000 hahah please feel free to
    suggest!

    Ditto the Lexicons, but not the really low end stuff. PCM 81's and 91's are going for about $1500 USD at Sam Ash right now. That's a pretty good deal. I think we paid $2000 for our 81.
     
  4. if you like the sound of it i would look for a used one or a used dp4+ .i have that unit- it has great effects but has some noise problums-but still great effects.
    also i think you should check out the lexicon pcm 60 (you will only find a used unit they dont make them anymore.)great reverbs i worked with it and it rocks.
    also you can get a pcm 70 or 80 .
    i like the charecter of old reverb units they have a grainy feel.
    the best thing to do is to check what you like best no matter the price --if it fits your needs then it doesn"t matter if its cheep or expensive
    a nice units is the lexicon mpx 1
    not expensive and has tons of options.

    Hands down, the Kurzweil KSP-8. 4 engines like the dp-4, with the same great split of special fx and reverb. Elegant and powerful, it has the smooth tails of a tc with the clarity of eventide and the make it stick out-ness of Lexicon. The midi integration is flawless (it is based on the KDFX, so there is absolutely no zipper noise). All kinds of routing.
    And it's only $2500.
    Fantastic.

    Rob I have heard about those and have heard they are great it's been a while since I posted this
    so i actually just been out shopping around and wouldn't you know it. That is the unit I am going for! They are real nice and I think you hit the nail on the head with the description! Good Postin'

    TC came out with the TCM4000 which has many of the same presets as the awesome TCM6000. I'mn not sure if it has hit stores yet. It's definately on my list of verbs to chack out along with the KSP8.

    On the LoCost-Side one could also consider the Sony DPS-V55M - I got mine used but mint condition for about 150$ and it sounds pretty good!
