    I need a cheap (<$200) hardware reverb for live acoustic guitar and voice. I just bought an Alesis Nanoverb for $50. Turned out to be WAY too cheap. Sounds not much better than the Radio Shack reverb I had in 1983.

    How about the cheap Lexicon models? Sound OK? I'm not too demanding; I just need a decent Hall or Plate that doesn't sound like a tin can, man.

    I have the lexicon LXP-1 , got for 125.oo ish

    they have a MRC controller for it, if you can find one,,,

    I saw this unit listed in the lead players rack from the group YES , so must be ok enuff,

    hope my 2 cents helps

    I also have an LXP-1. I think its pretty good but you should be able to get a Sony DPS-V55m for that price (or one of the other Sony units. Can't remember their names). I think they sound alot better than the LXP.
  4. i think the TC electronics verbs are quite a bit better than the Lexicon ones, esp. for the price. The Alesis MidiVerb 4 is a decent one in that price range too.
