    Hi all,
    Has anybody heard of/have knowledge of anyone making/selling repop rattrap pedals, in a kind of general TOC style?
    I see lots of other items replicated, but don't really recall seeing any such pedals.
    Just wondering.
    Incidentally, why "repop"? This side of the pond we call it "repro".

    Happy New Year, let us know how it is! I do remember not long ago some member was querying the masses on interest on him reproducing some so a search might yield some results? I guess the repop term is from the mass production of reproduction parts or maybe we just ain't all that good at English? I think you know that answer!

    A very Happy New Year to you too!

    I believe Mike Cates offers some very nice repop rat traps.

    Those repop "originals" are beautiful.

    Got a set from Mike many yrs ago for a Pierce and they are nice. He hasn't made any since that time and I've asked him on several occasions but he doesn't make them anymore from what he told me. The original price was $550 - then.
