    TC Electronics? Are the rackmount units actually even worth it? Or is it better to get some Pedal units?

    TC, Lexicon, and Eventide are amoung the best made. Eventide is definitely high-range gear starting around $3000.00. That said, in my experience, most of these rack units do some things well. Eventually, you will start to look for pedals or other rack units that cover the areas they do not excel at. On the other hand rack units are convenient, especially if you spend the time to program them. So, if you are looking for a single unit that cover most sounds adequately in a convenient package, go rack. If you are looking to develop your own sound and style, look for separate units.
