Really, where? The only place I could find one,
and it was a special order, cost me around $80
plus shipping. Was I just completely ripped off?

I sure felt completely ripped off at the time.
After looking for one for what seems like forever
and already dumping so much into a decent condition
JP8 and an encore midi kit, I had to go with it to
finish the install. It seemed like alot of money
for one and I think I even asked Tony K. at the
time and got a guesstimate of about $50 to $100
for a punch.

I'm extremely happy with the midi kit and use the
Jup on almost every track so I'm not too disappointed.
Just curious if I could have bought one for $10? Who
knows, maybe I'll have to buy another one in the future
for a banana jack or XLR and it would be good to
know where to buy the punch.
