I have a few expensive pedals, but it seems like more and more the prices are nut expensive. I know the exchange rate and sales tax are big contributors, but take Kingsley for example... I bought mine used for I think $560, and another one was offered at $720. (The seller was asking new prices in lieu of the 1 year wait, I am not complaining about him. Best pedal I own probably.) Or a basic OD will be $255 + tax at L & M. I am not saying they aren't worth it from the builder's prospective, it just seems to be escalating out of control. I have a Cali76 comp, a Strymon Timeline, a Kingsley Minstrel, Some $300+ fuzz pedals etc. so I have ponied up. Just where does it end? Yes I understand there are cheaper alternatives and some low cost gems, but it seems $500+ is becoming more and more the norm. Just sayin'.
