I went up to guitar center to order a DPDT Stomp switch and they told me it was 25 dollars. I basically told them to go to hell. Are they seriously that much??

Some are more, some are much less.

Try shopping at an electronics store for your electronics needs.

I do. I got all my capacitors, transistors and all of those items at my electronics store, but he didn't have any switches, and told me guitar center may have some.

Have you personally ordered from them? I hate ordering of the internet for fear of fraudulent websites.

+1 more to PPP.

I've ordered at least a dozen times from them.

Only hiccup has been extra parts now and then on larger orders. Fine with me!

You shouldn't have said that.


... you should have told them to ram that $25 switch where the sun don't shine.

Is it packaged like many guitar parts are where its hanging on a display, sold individually in a blister pack? Sold like that they suddenly become much more expensive as its "musical equipment" vs the same switch sold out of a bin at an electronics place. And there are many who would walk in and say oh thats what they cost ok give me one.

Places like pedal parts plus and small bear are fine to work with. A place like mouser many times you can get a better price but you do have to know what your looking for, vs PPP where they only sell parts that you would use in pedals. But PPP selection can be very limited.

I've ordered from smallbear, and there was a bit of a hiccup with shipping, but it got all sorted out.

$25 is at least 6 times overpriced!

On a side note though. It was rather rude of you to tell the retail assistant to "go to hell". He was not responsible for setting the price, Guitar Center was. The poor dude is there to tell you of the price that Guitar Center sets for their DPDT switches.

it's so cool to hate Gibson, even the federal Department of Justice hates them.
