JHS makes the Bad Monkey expensive

bought one used some years back real cheap and used it for a while then gave it to a friend who later sold it. I'd wished I'd kept it after I gave it away, he was sorry he sold it and wanted another. I picked one up again about a year ago under $50 and have kept it. Passed on one on Craigs List just days before the JHS video for $25. I bet there's seller's remorse there, wonder if the buyer beat him up over the $25? They are a pretty versatile pedal but then so are a lot of the many pedals I have.

We could just say, guitarists are crazy! Look at the whole vintage market 🥱
I appreciate vintage wood just like most but come on..

100 Bad Monkeys jumping on a bed. One fell off and bumped it's head.

I seriously have no idea what the internet is buzzing about over these pedals. I haven't bothered to follow the topic.

I assume this Josh guy (no idea who he is) did a review of the BM. And now, like the Marshall Bluesbreaker everyone just needs one?

Not me.
