Re: QuadraVerb GT - Replacement?

I had a QVGT a long time ago...

Possible successors (assuming you want some of the "guitar effects" from 
the GT):

* Slightly less old, Roland GP-100

* Non-rack: Line6 M13 or M9

* Non-rack: Probably a range of things from Roland/Boss

* More rack spaces: For several years, I was using a Tech21 PSA-1 and a 
Lexicon Vortex. You might want to add a reverb to that but there are a 
range of options in that regard. (I would probably sell my PSA-1 since 
I've moved away from racks. I'm less ready to sell my Vortex.)

* Lacking the guitar centricity but with lots of effects configuration 
options: Korg AM8000R (I've got two and would be willing to sell one)


P.S. For obscure things in the same direction as the QVGT, there was a 
Yamaha box that combined an SPX90 with a distortion section for 
guitarists. I owned it but can't remember what it was called.
