    Hard to say, but my educated guess says it's a no-name MIT. What's even more surprising is that bidding is already up to $16.50! I don't get it, what's the attraction?

    Looks a lot like a Sound Percussion.
    Your basic simple cheap Japanese pedal. Worth $20-$25.

    Sound Percussion sounds about right, which is an MIT brand. I just checked my local CL (Los Angeles area) and found quite a few really nice pedals between $20-$40, so, again, I don't get the attraction to this cheap eBay pedal. Maybe everyone thinks they're getting a real bargain!

    I agree that generally there are tons of brand name pedals available for $20-$40 that are much better made than
    the one we're discussing. If the bidding stops at $16.50 than that would make sense.

    Even at $20, I would think shipping will cost at least $15. It's really shipping costs that have skyrocketed over the years. I'll watch this pedal and see what happens!

    Good detective work. The pedal in question sold for $34 + $10.99 shipping. The pedal you posted from Walmart is $24.56 brand new. I just don't get it! What was the draw of the eBay pedal?!!

    Buying something from eBay is much better quality than Walmart!

    I'm kidding of course.

    I should list the stock photo on eBay for sale and then direct ship from Walmart.com to the winner. I can pocket the difference minus fees and never touch the merchandise or pay shipping!
