When you think of some of the most expensive guitar pedals in history, what springs to mind? Perhaps a Klon Centaur overdrive pedal, which can (optimistically) be listed as high as $500,000? Or maybe a late-'60s original Arbiter Fuzz Face, which fetches upwards of $2,500?

How about an AmazonBasics drive pedal, with a street price of $26.75?
