The $1,000 vintage stompbox

Here's a thing. On 11th October last year, a guy in South Korea bid $1,088 for this Ampeg Scrambler stompbox - a very rare and cool-looking octave fuzz pedal. From what I can see, it was a real bid and a real sale (the seller's feedback was "GREAT TRANSACTION!!!"). Not surprisingly, Ampeg announced at NAMM that they're re-releasing the Scrambler range - no prices or dates yet. More about the Ampeg Scrambler here.

Much like the vintage Electro-Harmonix 16 Second Delays that were going for ~$1000 right up until EHX announced the reissue.
gonna repost this as it is an incredible thing..

i found this bugger on ebay last week...
a pedal box with several pots, jacks and a breadboard connecting the components into one of 5 circuits...An AMPEG SCRAMBLER clone, his take on the Klon Centaur among others....

the first one i saw went for 89 smackatonies(u$)
50% of the final value will go to World Vision: 2004 Tsunami Relief Fund
My knowledge of electronics is very limited and would like to develop my ear for capacitors and the like....just what happens when i run the circuit like so...
obviously all the components could be had somewhat cheaper through an electronics dealer but the cdrom manual sounds worth trying, and the Case is EXTREMELY Ugly. Not the fake wood grain for a backing..... not as cool as the synths but maybe more practical
Don't worry, Rock1 Rock2, you haven't been ignored!
