    I went to a guitar shop a few days ago to get my bass checked out(was making weird ground noises). While i was there i decided to try out some pedals, tried out some digitech guitar distortion stuff. nothing special.(overpriced aswell....)


    So i asked the guy if they had the EHX big muff, they said "no mate, but we can order you one"

    they said it would cost OVER £100!!, you can get one for about half that price off the web.

    Do you think these guys are trying to get money off me, or are they really getting these pedals from really expensive suppliers?

    Well the store has got to make a profit ;)

    The green ones are around £100 I think, but then again he wouldnt be ordering one of those would he?

    Could be what they have to pay, plus profit to make worth while.

    If the price difference is that great, order direct from the cheaper place.

    And it's pretty ridiculous if they're charging list price.
