I didn't know whether to post this other amps or effects...but here goes: Soldano HR50+ - great amp. Wouldn't mind being able to add delay. Tried a couple pedals and they all sounded like shit in the loop (carbon copy, dd7, dd500)...got distorted and made me really frustrated and angry. I cooled off on the idea of delay until recently when I figured I might be able to afford one more mental breakdown if it doesn't work. Thinking about the Lexicon MX200. Price point is nice, I can get it brand new so that if it doesn't work well in the loop I can return it and get on with my life. 1. Is there any other unit I might want to consider for under $500 CDN? 2. I've read the placement of the loop in Soldanos is pre-eq, so for high gain leads is this going to sound like shit regardless of how good a rack unit I use?
