There's your TL:DR.

Step 1: rebox cheap behringer effects in powder coated enclosure
Step 2: call it "Count to Six, a TGP exclusive"
Step 3: announce there will only be a super limited run of these
Step 4: sell hundreds of them at inflated prices.

Maybe the new update will boost you to no.1. just saying ;)

Man, I love my ct5. I play 3 to 4 sets everyday on a 4,000 guest cruise ship, and it features in atleast half my songs. I have learned to get quite a few different sounds out of the old girl. My latest is mode 1, tiny buffer, free quantization, set to close to unity, max feedback, use it as a riser, or to get crazy spaceship sounds.

LudicrouSpeed, if you ever make a demo video of all he ways you're using your Ct5, I'd love to hear it! :thumb:

Hey Mathias! I guess my post sounds like I think I've found something that others have not in the ct5, but I just see it as a personal best kinda thing, but that's actually a good idea, it would be fun to make such a video.

They should be up by MOnday or sooner.

and just fwiw in response to your more previous post, the last ct5 run was in the store for ~6 weeks (which is typical) so i don't think you can really blame people with fast fingers ;). however we usually have some every 3-4 months ish and haven't sold any for more like 6-7 months now, so who knows.

Thanks for responding. Glad that my post wasn't TL for you to R.

I'll be buying one of the new CT5s, and I'm eager to hear what this version has under the hood. I sold my rev J some time ago; I wanted the capabilities of an updatable later revision but just missed the last Ls and wasn't about to buy a secondhand one for more than its new price. I priced my J lower than what I paid for it (because it was a used pedal and not completely as capable as newer models – heroic, I know), and the guy who bought it put it back up for sale on the day he received it for $150 more. At least my karma is intact.

As for who deserves blame for price inflation, you're right: the physiological link between dexterous digits and unconscionable greed has yet to be proven. But you've seen a quick sell-out and subsequent secondhand hike yourself with the 856. I had similar situations in mind: Spaceman pedals, numbered like art pieces, compulsively gobbled up regardless of what they are; Outwards resold on the day of delivery for double their new price; a Pretty Years recently listed for $900 (from Sweden, of all places. Can't always blame another board). In any case, builders seem to take such mania nonchalantly,* which, despite my own fussing, seems to be the best response. Disregard it out of existence.

*except Spaceman, who orchestrate and stoke the hype in ways that stretch what I think of as "clever marketing" and apparently base their increasing prices on it – a separate (though parallel) issue, and one I won't pursue in another builder's subforum, but I thought the distinction should be made.

Out of curiosity, how many Count to 5s have been sold?

Re: Count To Five

I've had 3 over the years. At least that many.

It's all good, i don;t mind hearing what people have to say but what would you suggest as solution? it seems raising the price is business 101 here supply/demand but then it seems like you don;t enjoy that either based on the spaceman comment :). Originally this is part of why they went form iirc 225 to 250 a ways back but in the end it did not slow sales at all so maybe we should have moved it higher ....

somewhere in between 3 and 100,000.

Fair enough! I just know that I'm seeing them all over Instagram and not just on ILfer boards and pedal review YouTube channels, and that is a really good thing!

You could take to conducting telephone interviews (à la Klon) to determine if applicants are "well qualified" (or perhaps in this case "well quantized") to own this pedal. :idk:
