    Great minds think alike, though fools seldom differ. ;)

    Not just that. It’s as if people forget the parents providing the trophies to their spoiled kids of our generation were... wait for it... the ones calling us names now.

    Funny how that works!

    I know Meris is showing off this and the 500 version of the Hedra, but I wonder if they'll be showing anything else of their own...

    What’s your $$$ cutoff point for ridicule?

    I admit to missing my girlfriend, but this just sounds naughty.

    Maybe we should start talking about these pedals' brand as "Automatone" instead of Chase Bliss? Or at least change the title of this thread to reflect Meris' involvement.

    whatever your pedalboard is, I'm going to chuckle at you for it.

    I'm not really...
    but do you understand the ridiculousness of your comment?

    are you the, 'nothing is worth that much' type?
    or the, 'why are they charging so much for something that's worth less than $150 in components' type?

    because if it's the first one... sure every one has a cut off point as @cbm kinda mentioned.

    if it's the second... do you complain at the price of a dish at a restaurant because you could make it at home for a third of the price? no, of course you don't! of course some people do... they fail to realize that they're not paying for the food. they are paying for the salaries/labor, the lights, the gas, the rent etc. no restaurant in their right mind would have Cost Of Goods more than 30% (maybe 35% if they were making it up with something else on the menu at 20%). it's the same with any other business, like making new innovative never been made pedals... your paying to keep steady jobs for CBA&Meris builders, your paying for R&D and marketing... not just components.
    it's actually really hard for people to over price things these days. the only way it's possible if the company or business has built up a reputation that allows them to charge what they think they are worth. I think all of us would love to be there, in someway or another.

    lastly if you're the type that just looks down on people for spending their own money and partaking in their hobby of choice, I feel bad for you.

    I was on the fence about this pedal, but your forceful and cogent arguments have convinced me that I will indeed purchase it, even if it turns out to be something I don't want and can't afford. Thank you for your enlightening contribution.
