It’s gonna be priced around the £200+ mark. So that’s me out.

There’s a TC copy which looks decent for £50ish.

Still love to try one though.


Bun that Metalzone nonsense though.


It's all bollocks youth.

Decent gear but not aimed at the likes of us. Same with the AVRI Fenders.

Don't get me wrong, I could buy one but wouldn't on principle alone. £200+ for a fucking pedal? Laughing

Players will find alternatives like they always did, and then that will get mojo hiked in years to come. It's an endless cycle.


All this ^... £200?, I just hope these W pedals all take off then the price of the originals might come down.

I was kind of hoping that it would have a toggle for a DC-3 setting (but then again, that's a digital pedal, so that wouldn't make any sense).

Here's hoping they do a BF-2w with an HF-2 setting. I have my CE-2w on the CE-1 setting at all times.

As for pricing, do UK/European dealers not ever make deals? Most places here do.

Not particularly on stuff like Boss because it always sells. Besides that there aren't many music shops left.
Our best bet is second hand.

That sucks. I don't always get discounts but I do sometimes when I ask, especially if it's a place I've bought from previously like Sweetwater, Sam Ash, or Musician's Friend. Not huge discounts mind you, but every bit helps. Prymaxe is one place here that offers 25% off on the reg, but they're often out of stock on stuff so you have to wait a few weeks before you actually get it. It's how I got something like 25-30% off a Ventris last year on Black Friday.

I'm surprised Anderton's or Thomann doesn't allow for a little negotiating.
