$600 for a Shure Fatboy!? (Buy 5 57s...trust me)

$250 and up for most MIJ Boss pedals (Buy like 6 Behringer, unless you plan to gig)

It goes on and on and on...

I only look at Reverb as comedy at this point, and have become VERY familiar with my Sweetwater rep
Yes the guitar pedals have gotten seriously off the chain. One night I found myself torn between and comparing the merits of a Roland SRV-330 and an old MXR phaser pedal that were both the same price. The SRV is one fine old rack reverb and once I snapped out of it clicked buy it was gone! Doh!
Still when a pedal goes for the same price as decent studio gear it's all about the rock.
