Saw an SGX2000 with an X-15 together on Craig's List in Kansas City for $100. Anybody interested?

Wow, I would be if that was local . I use a x-15 with the art sgx nitro . It's a great efx unit , as long as you set the levels. The pedal alone gets some good money .

Oh MAN I am this close to saying yes...I already have the X-15 but as you may know the selector button crapped out on my SGX. I better pass though, too much else going on. Thanks for the headzup!

It's a mixed bag - it's a very good effects unit, particularly when you consider its age, and the X-15 foot controller really makes it work, but, good luck getting any work done on it, or finding parts if something goes wrong. Haven't seen anything from ART in a few years, after they'd gone over to making little mic pre's, and abandoned multi-effects. I wouldn't chance it. My Multiverb II died years back, and even then, it wasn't worth the effort or expense to repair it.

The preamp tube is one of the big plusses-so far the units I have looked at to replace it have none. For going DI or into an SS amp it`s a pretty darn good unit.

Dusting off is free, so you can't lose there. I wouldn't invest any cash in repairs if it has problems, though. This is a very early reverb, early in the history of digital ambience algorithms, & about as sophisticated as the first generation of Alesis units. You might get some usable sounds out of it, but it will be considerably less refined, & certainly noisier than equally inexpensive units from the present. I never liked ART reverbs, but that's all very subjective.
