    4 months ago these were selling for arounf 799 US on Musicians Friend - now they're going for over 900!

    I put off getting one back then cuz I was in NEW bass and rig aquisition mode and didn't want to get distracted with complex new toys.

    Now that I got my new tones dialed in - it's time for compltex new toys! But this Exchoplex price increase perpexes me. :confused:
     
  2. Hey Jeff,
    Take a look on the Bay sometime as to what the used EDP's are going for, that will give you a little insight as to how they can get away with it. I've been searching for at least a year to get one of the original Oberheim units to match the one I already have. :) What's scary is I got my original unit for $425 with the footpedal brand new at a store, and shudder paying double that for a used one without all it's memory and older Loop software upgraded. Loop IV is still another $100 to upgrade, and it is worth it for doing wackier stuff.
    I love the one I have and truly they are worth the price, but I'm yearning for stereo looping.
    Good luck,
    Dirk

    Yeah . . . I shoulda known. I did see a few used ones on e-bay selling for way more the 799 Musician's friend price.

    I even e-mailed 1 guy to tell him he was a moron for buying used gear for more than the new one sells for.

    (BTW - if that was someone here on TB who paid 890 for a used echoplex when new ones were selling for 799 - please accept my heartfelt denial of an apology - I still think you're an ass :smug: )

    Guess I'll have to bite the bullet. :meh:
