    How well would it sell if it were readily available competing with dozens of other options at Sweetwater or Guitar Center?

    IMO - the hype is inflated because of the waiting list. I'm not saying it isn't great, I haven't tried one. I'm just saying it's clever marketing that keeps people talking about it. People always want what they can't get.

    that is a interesting look at our expectation based on brand and reputation.
    so, all the listed stomp boxes have similar electronics?
    :eek: oh no I'm paying for hype?:cry:

    I find the whole pedal-thing a bit blown out of proportion.....there are quality pedals around with a higher pricelevel, but worth the money.
    I LOVE my Strymon pedals or my OCD or my T-Rex Gull Wah......BUT: if somebody tells me to wait at least 2 years before my El Capistan arrives, I'll happily go back to my T-Rex Reptile, maybe even my TC Nova Delay or look for a nice Catalinbread Echorec or something else.
    Same with overdrives: I could easily swap my OCD for my TC Dark Matter or my T-Rex Alberta or my Tech21 Blonde, maybe even for my cheap Harley Benton AC Tone.
    Do they sound the same?
    No.
    Will I get a satisfying sound out of them which matches my playing style and my ideas for a livesound?
    Of course.
    My main guitar, amp and pedals are important to me - but I'm in no way lost or even in trouble, if I have to play something else from my stock....
