Okay, so here's the deal. I keep seeing Strymon pedals in the emporium such as the El Capistan with asking prices of $250 - $270 and it's really baffling me. I mean they sell new for $299 with free shipping from some places plus sometimes you can get a discount on top of that. I'm not complaining, I mean if someone is willing to pay it more power to them. I honestly just feel like maybe I'm missing something? Help a brother out! PS I don't see this as much with other pedals.
