They've gone up in value from $250 used when I first started watching them a few years ago to $621!!! in the most recent eBay sale.

What the actual fuck. Gutted I didn't buy one when they were sold new for around 120. I'll never own one at this rate.

Did they ever actually come out over here? I was interested in one and got told by one of the UK retailers (Andertons or GAK probably) that Fender had told them there was some issue with the power supply that meant the UK release was delayed and then they just got discontinued.

Like you I've been watching them on eBay and the prices have gone nuts.

Ahh, guess that's it. I don't remember it being released in the UK, just that it piqued my interest and then almost immediately got discontinued.

The Fender Runaway Pedal is based on Softube's patented feedback algorithm, already used in the Acoustic Feedback plug-in. Now you can experience Softube's feedback simulation live!

I guess you could buy their VST?

The tech inside the Runway was done by Softube. They do a feedback plugin called Acoustic Feedback which can be controlled with a midi expression pedal.

Obviously not going to be enormously helpful if you wanted to use it live but might a cheaper (it's $49 at the moment) way of getting something similar for recording purposes? There's a free trial version on their website you can use for 20 days.

The lack of mojo arrows makes me want to vomit just thinking about it.

That is interesting, though. Some other brand should carry the torch now and make a pedal, please.

Yeah, I'm surprised that, with the 420 new pedals that get released on a weekly basis these days, no-one else has done something similar. The VST route just seems a bit too much faff for me and I would much prefer a self contained pedal.

Yeah, also an external sound card setup means a ton of latency with VSTs unless you want to use bullshit direct monitoring, and what would be the point of that for something as reactive as a feedback pedal.

I just want to wig out at band practice and annoy people.

Fuck, that plug-in is sick and sounds very realistic, gonna have a mess around with the free version later on.

I too wanted one of those Fender pedals, George. Never gonna 'wait until a cheap one turns up' ever again.

Fender Runway sounds like something connected to modeling.

There a Boss feedback pedal.

The Fender just costs a lot because it's rare, like the Boss Slow Gear or Danelectro reverse pedal.

The Fender uses different tech to the Boss, and sounds waaaaaaay better.

Yes!

If I'm honest, the larger part of that sounds a little bit iffy, but I'm sure it could be tweaked to sound pretty great.

Wonder what the list price will be. A Digitech Rep posts on TGP and is in their topic right now: https://www.thegearpage.net/board/index.php?threads/digitech-freqout.1783629/page-3 so let's bookmark it here for more lore as it develops.
