RE: new to LD - advice please

For everyone's information, I'm in the middle of building a production run
of 130 Echoplexes, the PCBs are finished and tested, just needing to be put
into chassis and then soaked for 24  hours.
After this I think the plan is to build a further 600 for Europe.
There will be no shortage of supply!!!!! :)))

I also just ordered the Gibson Echoplex Digital Pro (EDP) from Alto Music.
I spoke to a woman there who told me that Gibson had discontinued the unit
and they (Alto Music) bought all the remaining stock.  They have "quite a
few" of them.  On their website they are advertising them for $699, but 
also have them listed on eBay for $649.  They were willing to honor the 
price when I called the store directly, but I was unable to get them to go
below that.

They did offer me the foot controller for $99, which I declined.  I believe
I saw something on the LD website about how to build one yourself.  Anyone
have any experience with building a foot controller for the EDP?  They
charged me $20 for 3-business-day shipping via FedEx from New York to
California, which did not seem excessive.  And they said they would ship 
same day I ordered.

If you think you might want an EDP you might think about getting one while
they are still available.
