I've used a Bricasti and they're amazing, but I don't own one. Otherwise, I REALLY love the Klark Teknik DN-780. EMT plates are pretty fantastic (again, I don't own one, but I've used LOTS of them over the years). Sony DPS-R7s are also really cool and can be had super-cheap these days. Also really love my PCM-60, especially on snare. My Lexicon 200 (the big one from the late 70s/early 80s) is absolutely gorgeous, but every few years it breaks again and it costs about $500 to get fixed. Ugh...

I had an m3000 which was so flexible and easy to use. It also had lots of other useful tools other than reverb. Mine crapped out shortly after I got it though. I was pretty disgusted. I liked it so much I almost bought another to replace it but couldn't bring myself to throw more money at something that had caused me so much grief. I took a chance on a unit I hadn't heard or used before-an old Barco Emt 248 from the nineties. No bells and whistles, and the routing is not as flexible as the m3000, but the reverbs are great. It really stays out of the way, which is one of the things I like about it. It's the only box I have. I've used boxes that are more useful and flexible, but none that sound any better.

Does running Audiodamage EOS on an old iPhone count as hardware?
