    I think my work HERE is done.
    I just need to decide what to sell.

    Unfortunately yeah. These look super badass, but 225 for a fuzz and 400 for an octave fuzz is a bit steep for my broke keister.

    FWIW: I don't think this is too much to pay for handmade pedal of this build quality.

    You guys ever go to the D*A*M forum?
    These prices are nothing compared to other "boutique" builds.

    :bag:

    Okay, so i'll put it in the "over-hyped" pedals category like D*A*M? A 300% profit margin on a pedal is uncalled for in my opinion. I will agree they look nice but no soundclips or ever hearing of the pedal don't justify a 400$ pedal imo. Lower prices might get his name around..

    Not my point. :scowl:

    Here's my point:
    To me a build like this is worth at least 2x as much as say...


    :meh:


    a build like this.

    Here, I DO agree!
    Don't get me wrong, I wish the price were lower. :bawl:

    Fwiw: I know he has clips coming.
    and ymmv, in my case clips rarely sell me OR discourage me. ;)

    OK, I was going to bust you for being the maker of these pedals, but I guess not... maybe...
     
  15. I'm sure this would get me banned at TGP, but I think of D*A*M as this long, built-up joke for which I don't get the punchline. Then I have the punchline explained to me, and I still don't get it.

    So you're paying a grand or more for a Tonebender, and this is cool, why exactly?

    I'm sort of in the same boat. Besides, if I ever got my hands on any of these $$$ pedals, I certainly wouldn't bring them out to play shows, and seeing as how my recorded output hovers mere millimeters above nil...

    That said, there's nothing like gear whore adoration and internet fame.:p

    These are made in Portland, OR.
    I don't live in Oregon. :confused:

    I am not a builder either.
    I have modded and rehoused a few different Muff and delay pedals but never a ground up build.

    I don't pretend to understand paying 1000.00+ for a mojo tonebender clone. But paying =< $400 for some solid looking builds that aren't your run of the milll, made in china bulsh.. that I can see.

    If you think D*A*M are expensive, you've never played one.

    I've driven a Porsche, and I still think that's expensive.

    People wouldn't assume you're the builder or associated with the builder if you filled out the information in your user profile...This should clear up some confusion.
