Yamaha FX500? Other cheap fx?

Post by BluMunk » Thu Nov 17, 2011 4:40 pm

There's one of these available locally on craigslist, and I'm kind of interested. I've been thinking about getting some sort of effects/reverb for my Alpha Juno 2 (that would also double as fx for guitar and whatever else I feel like plugging into it).

I've always heard that the Alesis midiverb is a good, cheap unit, but I never see them around here for under $100, which is what I'd like to spend. So, this FX500 is available in mint (well, mint for a 20+ year old box) condition, and I have a little extra cash on me, so I think I might take the plunge.

My question is, do folks think this is worth the $80 asking price, or are there better options for that kind of money?
