Super Tube Screamer
Anyone heard of a 'Super Tube Screamer'? Some guy is selling a set of 4 of them, Ibanez and Maxon, for a mere $4000.00.

I don't know about the provenance of these pedals, but I only know of one way to ensure that there are no other pedals like them anywhere...  
 
 
 
*My* pedals are guaranteed one-of-a-kind as well, and I sell them for only $800 each... ;-)

I'm just wondering what the mid boost control did and where it is in the circuit.

I've had one of the Super Tube Screamers (Ibanez)and to be honest the mid control isn't very effective and the pedal isn't that rare in europe. Bought it for ca $100 and sold it for $150. I prefer the standard TS-9 over the Super Tube.

Would you believe the winning bid was $1825 with a 2nd place bid of $1800!!! Both from Ebay newbies who almost always pay way too much. I've never heard these pedals mentioned in the same breath as the TS-808.

From what I've read and heard, they were sold mostly in Europe and Austrailia. People have paid as little as $40 for one used. Some like them more than the Tube Screamer, some don't.  
 
 
 
Anyway, a friend of mine said that his 'collection' was probably worth about $150.
