Question Best Reverb Box for under $300

Okay,

So I know that this limits me quite astutely, but what do you recommend as far as reverb hardware goes for this price range? I've been a fan of the Alesis stuff in the past, are there any others worth considering?

I play on using this for live rigs moreso than any recording application.

Not that you can get them new any more but the Behringer V-Verb Pro is pretty balls to the wall, there is a whole lengthy thread about it.

Perhaps you can pick one up used?

Hello

TC electronics is very good in hardware reverbd and delays

TC Electronic M350 Reverb and Effects Processor

A good feature about this box is that it can be fully integrated with a DAW. So you get a hardware effect with the setting controlled by DAW software like with VST plugin.


Cheerz!!

For studio I would definitely go with the V-Verb (great value if it works) but since you want a unit for a live rig, I would go with something more robust and reliable - Any of the Lexicons: 200, 300, 550 or the TC units in the same basic price range would be fine.

You guys have given me a lot of gear to ponder over. That's great. Do you know anything about the old Yamaha SPX-900? I know they have the 2000 out now and it sounds great, but I have found a few used 900s for around my price range.

Sony R7

or really cheap:
Digitech TRS 24 (for one preset only, but good for the money)
Boss SX-700

SPX900 is quite cool....good for electronic stuff, to me, not as good for 'real' music.......Sony R7 better for that.

The Sony R7 is an awesome box for the money and it is a tweakers delight as well. The TC M-One XL is good too.

Look used!

I picked up a Yamaha ProR3 for $100 (those were >$1k new) and it's great... also using a V-Verb and a few other 'cheap' units that work just fine for me.

You got an incredible deal. You usually can't find the ProR3 for near that cheap. I have one in my rack as well. The R7 was around $1600 or so new as I recall. There are a lot of boxes that fall into that category, that cost quite a bit new but for whatever reason, didn't hold value... which is good for us.
