ART SGX 2000

Does anyone have an ART SGX 2000 Express preamp? What can you tell me about it? I just read an ad which said a store here is selling one for AUD$295 used, and I'm thinking of moving into rack gear. What are they like?

I searched and only found two for-sale ads, from the same person. However I just got an email from the store and it sold after only a couple of days.

I had one and wouldn't buy one again. Lots of effects, but you're rather restricted as to what combinations you can have - no phaser and reverb at the same time, for instance. Plus there's a dropout between patches unless they have the same FX blocks, just different parameter values.

I think you could do better for the money.

Yikes! I'm glad I missed out on it then, what's the point of phaser without reverb? *LOL*

I had one for a while, and thought it was godly. They were about 1400US new with the pedal when they were new a decade or so ago. I did move it on though, and now have an RP2000. When I had it, I had a great deal of fun with it.

Still have mine, bought it when it first came out (non-Exoress). Upgraded, gigged heavily with it, but never really used the preamp section much. Got it with the X-15, and it was awesome (at the time). Being able to *morph*, blend, etc using the two footpedals is sweet!!!

Got a DIgitech 2120, still have the SGX. Each has a place (in a mix, and in my heart)

There were a couple of things that it couldn't do in combination. Most of the time you could get around it fine though; for me, it was the drop-out between patches that was the real pain.
