Remember that Pino Precision we all thought was a tad overpriced...

...then get a load of this bargain being sold on Reverb by Tony Levin...

It must be part of the collector's mentality to see additional value in hardware because of who owned it previously. I have no time for that.

It’s an interesting point. A few vintage Guitar dealers I know don’t mention previous owners or try and increase the price as a result of who has owned or used it in the past. Unless it’s an iconic guitar (or bass) one dealer quite righty said he can’t see why it should increase value.

On the other hand, some of the London dealers will use every trick in the book to ramp up value, which is fair enough if it works.

Wouldn't it be funny if Tony Levin was reading this thinking, "what a sh*t pedal that was, glad I got rid of it, sounded crap"

If this IS TL selling it, then he's not shy of trying to screw money out of fans is he?

Hate to say this Tony, old chap, but Peter Gabriel was the celebrity, as you know.

Even the shipping is €133 :)
I wouldn't personally pay that for the pedal and shipping together.

My old Mesa Boogie Road Ready 210 EV was previously owned by Mark King.

Thankfully it didn't make me sound anything like him.

I assume because I've looked at this Reverb listing, I'm now gettting Tony Levin's for sale ads popping up in my FB feed.

Amongst them, I found this. One for blue I think....

Hilarious. I suppose some idiots fall for it (like the fools who pay a fortune for soiled bed linen used by stars and sold by the hotels they stay in).

This seems better value for the same price. At least it's actually an instrument.

I think you're all overlooking the fact that there is a guitar pick also included in the deal, clearly adding justification to the price.......

It’s no different to people buying gold or diamonds. The value is in the rarity. It’s the effect of supply and demand in a totally inelastic supply market.

If a few rich people want something they’ll pay whatever the market will stand.

I see the Tony Levin funk fingers are £117!
Our drummer keeps threatening to make me a pair from his old sticks, I made a rude hand gesture in response :0)

Me neither. Do people think that if they buy a bass (for example) that was owned by a famous bass player that they will somehow, by osmosis, suddenly be able to play and sound like said player and instantly enjoy the fame and success of that player? Or what..?

Buying a phase pedal previously owned by [ROCK STAR] at an extortionate price isn't going to help you record and produce a million-selling album, is it? Unless you were on your way to recording such an album anyway, of course... ;)

Anyway, I like Behringer pedals. They're nineteen quid.
