Help with rack gear

Hey guys, so I've started to put together a hybrid software/hardware studio. I've got some excellent monitors, headphones, and all the nuts and bolts. It's finally come time to picking out some hardware pieces, I've got a few FET compressors, a nice DBX tube compressor, an old Lexicon Reverb, but I'm wondering what sort of old archaic rack effects can get some cool sounds in the vein of early 90's Warp artists.

I'm probably getting an Alesis Midiverb II, and an SP-202 shortly. I'd prefer gritty/lo-fi outboard gear, since I get most of my polished sounds in the box.

Would a parametric EQ be a decent investment? A multi-fx unit? I do have a slew of guitar pedals to use so maybe a multi-fx would be useless.

I'd also take suggestions on a synth to compliment my Roland Alpha Juno I. Maybe a DSI Mopho? I really like the pad sounds on the Alpha Juno I, so I think I've got everything covered for pads. I'm sort of lacking in the bass department though.

Just please don't respond, "but this plug-in does ________ better than (this piece of hardware)" I'm well aware of VST software, I just come from a rock background so tactile instruments tend to be better than software for brain.

How about a Jomox T-Resonator? Goes from spacey-smooth to hardcore-distorted, analog and unpredictable. Needs a limiter for ear and monitor safety.

Or an OTO Machines Biscuit.

Whoah that Jomox T-resonator sounds insane.

EDIT: Apparently it sounds awesome with practically anything, I just watched some demos with a Rhodes, Moog Little Phatty, and a guitar...
