Tech 21 is selling them on their site? Unless that's some new reissue that looks exactly the same?
Well, I think the one I'm looking at is a reissue that happened earlier than the current issue that's currently available. Look at the new version. It doesn't have "DC" next to the power jack. Plus it's quite a bit more expensive to buy new.
Tech 21: "If people will pay that much for the original, we should charge the same amount for the reissue!"
i feel you.
It's funny really... The one I used to have died after about 10 years of heavy use. That was about 5 years ago. I bought it used back in the day for probably 60 bucks or so. I just really connected with it using it to demo songs for my band, and it was easy to get a sound with it that I really liked.
Nowadays, they go for stupid money probably cuz Kurt Cobain used one. I really have a problem with re-buying pedals for stupid money that I used to have and had bought for nothing... Oh well though. I miss it.
I really can't blame Tech 21 though. It makes business sense.
I think they were always kind of pricey (but a good value for what they are) so relatively speaking I don't think the new ones are more expensive. i also don't recall them ever actually goingout of production, but I could be wrong on that. Also 60 bucks for one even back in the day was a screaming deal. I've had my eye out for one since the early nineties and I think the cheapest I've ever seen was 175.00
