Hey guys, my EHX DMB's tap tempo switch has already gone bonkers after just a month. How easy is it to replace a switch (if EHX doesn't want to honor their warranty because I didn't notice the little warranty card) and are there any soft, no click switches you would recommend that are durable? I use tap tempo a lot. Thank you!

smallbear stocks a 'soft touch' momentary switch http://www.smallbearelec.com/Detail.bok?no=672.
I'm guessing that you haven't done much soldering. I'm a big proponent of learning how to fix and build things, but if you are looking at this to save a few bucks, I'd recommend having someone do it. You should be able to find someone locally to do this really cheap, and you wouldn't have to worry about durability of the solder joints. They could also make sure you get the right switch, which I'm not sure about as I haven't seen inside of a DMB.
Sorry I couldn't be more helpful. If you would like to try your hand on it, I'm quite willing to give you some more info, but I'd need you to post a picture of the inside of the pedal, showing the switch you suspect to be the problem. You will need to have a multimeter, a soldering iron, some solder, and a replacement switch, at a minimum. If you don't have these things, it is very likely to cost you more to get the tools than to have someone else do it for you.
