So, i want a electro-harmonix ravish sitar pedal badly, the only problem is that it's set top be priced at around 175 quid, according to the only website i could find with it on(it hasen't been released yet, if anyone could tell me the realse date i'd be thankful). obviously i would like it cheaper than that and it got me thinking about whether pedals drop in price over time, i know the whammy did after the release of the whammy drop tune, but i can't really see a similar situation occuring here.

Do new, first-hand pedals drop in price over time or do they tend to stay constant in price?

tl:dr-last sentence

I couldn't see it drop more than $10-$20 after a year or two. The reason that whammy probably dropped so much, is they really can't justify jacking the price of something up while only adding one extra option. So dropping the price of the model with less options seems more reasonable. And they probably sold a fair bit more of them then when they were at the original price so they would have profited well for themselves after that move.

Effects pricing is pretty consistant. Wait for a sale, look for a used one, or maybe look into a clone?

The pedal hasn't even come out yet, and there isn't anything out there that is even remotely similar, so probably not.

You might find an actual sitar for less money, if you look hard enough...

Theres nothing else like it, and EHX knows it. So probably not.

Side note-Why are people freaking out about this pedal so much? It hasn't even come out yet, and I hear a ton of guys are getting antsy for one. It seems to me like a pedal that wouldn't see all that much use.

this.

i know a guy who has a rogue electric sitar he got pretty cheap. it's not particularly good quality or anything, but it does the job.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.
