Needed a volume pedal. Got online and was kind of offended by prices. So I went to local pawn shop and offered $25 on an old '70s Shaller Fusschweller pedal. Took it to office, plugged it in and does nice smooth sweep. Cuts it off and maxes it out. Does exactly what it is supposed to. Ugly, but works. So, out of curiosity, I looked them up. People want anywhere from $44.99 to $192 for these pieces of plastic with a 100k pot and two jacks. I paid what I thought it was worth. I honestly wouldn't have paid $5 more for it. And there were thousands of these things used everywhere for decades. It's not like its rare or even collectible. Why is it that people think just because something is old, it is valuable? I get it if it's cool, rare or even superior to anything newer. But if I'm going to spend anything close to $100 for a volume pedal, I'd just go ahead and buy a VM-Pro. Perhaps all this stuff I see listed for crazy prices will still be listed for crazy prices if I'd check again 10 years later.
