Just finished making another boost pedal.
I call it a repro-mod because it's a reproduction of a Kustom pedal using a modified volume pedal.
All parts, including the pedal, are new.
20' cable with gold plated 1/4" stereo jack.
Just tested it on my K 250-4 and it worked great.

Think there'd be any interest in these?

That look`s great, you do nice work!
It would seem that the board gets about 3 to 5 people a year turning up looking for these things, and I am sure there are many more k250 owners who might have given up finding a OEM one.

Thanks.
I wasn't sure if it would be acceptable since it wasn't an original pedal.
I made my first one because I couldn't find an original one any where.

I put it up on ebay.
I'll see if there's an interest there.

I guess it's not something people want.
Zero bids starting at what it cost me to make.

A lot of guys don't know what these pedals do.

And it only works on the higher model heads, so you just have to wait for the right guy to find you. Or you have to find him.

You have to also keep in mind that the K250-4 head is the only head that could use it, and thinking of production from 71 to late 73, how many of the K250-4 heads were made. I think you just need to list it on craigslist where it's free to list and someone will need one sometime.

A few weeks ago, an original one (looks like it was found in a barn) sold on ebay with several bidders for over $120.00.

I think it boils down to originality.

Sorry, no more available.
Doubt I'll have time any time soon to make any more.
