Unfortunately, one of these has to go if I'm to get a Gordon, which I've pretty much made my mind up about. Now, you could argue that the Martech is similar so sell it, but I just got a pair of original 1073's so is the Great River now superfluous? Oh decisions, decisions.

do you find the great river superfluous? Ive never used a 1073 but from what I've read the greatriver is based on it but still very different. do you find yourself not using the greatriver at all? if so then yes get rid of it. No point having something you arent using.

Can't you get the Gordon in your studio for a few days
before you have to sell one of the others?

You'll have to get them all together in your room to make an
informed decision that best suits YOUR needs.

On the other hand... do you have a Bricasti?

If not, forget the Gordon and get the Bricasti!

I haven't done a side by side comparison yet between the GR and the Neve, but I will probably dump the Martech as I bought it primarily to record my lead vocals, which I find the Neve's do better. The Martech is still great, but the studio is mainly for me and my music. I'd take the Gordon over the Martech simply for the fact that it's cheaper to have it in stereo.

I'm buying gear mainly for tracking, but I'm sure it's a great reverb.
