    That's a tall order there. What will you be using it for? What kind of music? The only half decent one I can think of is maybe a pod pro or xt pro used. I have a b3 ATM and think it sounds better, but it depends what you're using it for.

    Check out the TC Electronics M-One XL. I think it sounds really good and it isn't very expensive, relative to other gizmos in it's class.
  5. I recently got a Boss VF-1 (24bit multi-FX in a half rack size) for around $200 with which I'm pretty happy.

  6. I second the VF-1. The TC M-One is a nice unit, but doesn't really have much in the way of effects beyond delay and reverb.

    Oh that's easy then! Seriously--you absolutely do not need any multi-fx unit. You need a big amp and maybe one or two distortions to choose between.

    Yes, discontinued...but available used.

    Decent units. Better (analog) distortions/OD's on the Boss SE-70, though. Though the switching isn't as smooth as the VF-1.
