I don't get it, either. Why someone would go shopping for a used item that sells for only $29.00 new is beyond me.

Not sure why you posted this link. They want $15.00 plus $11.00 shipping for the cheapest one, which just underlines my point, above, and the OP's. Guess that saves him a nickel, though.

If you are saying that they are selling for more on Ebay used than from online guitar stores new, than I have to agree with JerryD. The fault lay not in Ebay sellers, but in yourself...

We all want a good deal. But this time it sounds like buying from Music123 or Musician's Friend IS the good deal

Compared to the price of your lower wattage model, it probably is more expensive then you would hope it would be. Unfortunately (for you), that's the same foot switch that they sell to mate with the $300+ 100watt model, so it's much more in line with what they would be charging for that.

look to see if any other foot switches will work with the amp. i've purchased them made by other than the amp manufacturer and have got them cheaper.

or, you could build your own.

play music!
