Man, that's a lot of money to spend on all of our opinions.
I was about to say:
Two 1176 or two Purples (I say two because you're gonna want them on the drum bus)
When I noticed that Surfkat said almost the same thing.
Great minds, right?
I'm not a huge Distressor fan, but that didn't stop it from outselling probably everything else in it's class.
I think that better than renting, do what research you can, and go with what your head tells you. You'll need more than rental time to really get 'down and dirty' with each unit. If you buy them "right" you can change a piece here and there if need be. But rental can tell you if you're in the ballpark.
