Seeking opinions on best bang for buck used Harmonizer

Hello;

I have been thinking of getting another Harmonizer product for my guitar rack and was curious what people think is the best bang for buck purchase of the older Harmonizers post H3000 because I have a H3000 D/SX. I realize the Eclipse can still be purchased new but am more interested in the others for the moment, like the 4000, and 7000 series.

It would only be used for guitar so I guess perhaps in the 4000 series a GTR 4000 may make more sense then a DSP 4000, then there was what, the DSP 4500, DSP 7000 and rather than the DSP 8000, the DSP 7600 would be the more targeted to guitar unit seeing as it's only a stereo unit.

Thanks

If you already have a 3000, how much better is a 4000 really? I’d go as modern as my wallet allows. you already have vintage covered. Why get “slightly less vintage”? I can only imagine a 7600 has loads more algos.

I have no hands on experience with any unit post H3000 so I am unaware of what tangible advancements each successive model introduced. So unfortunately when you state how much better could the 4000 be I honestly don't know. As you suggest the 7600 would certainly be the most modern and after skimming the product details it's more powerful than the initial 7000 series which that is stated as being 4x the processing capabilities of the DSP4000.

 

One thing I hadn't given enough thought on is the going price of the 7600, looking at eBay the past few days the prices are right up there and approaching the 9000 territory so perhaps a 7600 isn't the best bang for buck. On the other hand with it being recently discontinued the chances of getting a perfectly working unit would theoretically be much greater than an original 7000 series or a 4000 series unit seeing as those are much older.

Swing for an H8000?  This might be perfect for you.
