Lives for gear
 

If you want the neve sound and don't want to spend a fortune for a vintage one... BAE is the way to go.
If you want something really cheap..sound skulptor mp573 is incredible for the price.
Much better than warm audio or GAP.
Pretty close to the real deal tbh.
It's API lunchbox format..so you'll need a lunchbox if you don't have one.

The avalon is not what I choose first for rock...but for rap it's a proven workhorse.

One bad experience with used gear should not deter you from the second hand market.
I buy used and sell all the time and had very few problems in 15 years (other than regular maintenance) absolutely worth it.
And buying second hand is great for the planet
