MESA Midi Matrix

I'm about to buy a MESA Midi Matrix, but I'ld like to know some things the owner can't tell me.

1. What years were these units produced?
2. What did they cost new?

You would be much much much better off getting a DMC GCX or a Bradshaw.
The Midi Matrix was made in the mid 90's and sold for way too much at about $800 new. A mint condition used one is worth about $300- to $400 at best, but not even close to worth it in my opinion.
The GCX is more transparent and has 2 more loops, and can easily be expanded to all stereo if need be.

Thanx for the info, but I won't use the Matrix anyway. I'm buying it dirt cheap (about $100), and here in Europe, the thing will fetch over $600. Just making a little money to save up for a new axe

I'm satisfied with just one fx-unit and don't use any stompboxes, so such an elaborate system isn't for me.

I just saw John Petrucci is still using it in his rack!
