this kid doesn't care about your pedals.
I like Barefoot Buttons and I always wear shoes when I play. It just makes finding and accessing certain buttons easier. And although they have sometimes come off due to my not packing the pedal so well, I just tighten them back on for next time. The buttons are expensive but I only needed a handful for certain special buttons
I'll have to try someone's suggestion about wrapping the button in electrical tape for a more secure fit. I also agree my pedals look stepped on and play fine, they are made for the "abuse" and appreciate getting out of the house every week.
Is there a greater first world problem?
I think not.
Clorox wipes will take care of any unhealthy foot residue.
Just like the first dent in your brand new car. Just devastating
Aw man...the poor guy has a bit of OCD. I get it. It's completely irrational, but I get it.
Sounds like he'd be a nightmare buyer on the used market.
"You didn't tell me that there would be dust on it."
With the amount that some people spend on pedals (not me, of course) and the whole buy-to-try philosophy that informs many a pedal purchase, it's no wonder people want to keep the resell value. Maybe hold off on the barefoots till you know it's a keeper?
You just need more practice in loosenin up them buttons...
So, ten pedals taking a $20 apiece value loss would equal $200 out of the OP's wallet?
We already know that quite a few pedal buyers won't buy a used pedal without the original box.
I wonder how much less all those picky pedal buyers pay for triple gouged footswitches?
Really though, tightening grub crews into chrome?
C'mon, you had to know!
That's what I've been thinking! I know not everyone's a machinist, but c'mon... how do you think a set screw works?
This is a valuable thread for me though. I've been thinking of making my own switch buttons, and maybe making a few extra to see if anyone wants them. It would never have occurred to me to warn someone that a set screw will leave a mark.
Now I know!
Tone socks sound better.
I just hit them barefoot if I’m practicing at home. It hurts sometimes, but you have to build up callouses.
Learning new stuff comes pretty seldom at my advanced age.
Boss makes pedals??
You didn't see the allen screws sticking into the middle hole of the button? How did you think they secured? Tractor beams?
For future reference, in a battle between plastic and metal, metal usually emerges victorious. I know, hard to believe...
I gotta say, I own like 17 pedals on 2 different boards, at least half bought used, and there's easily another 10-15 used pedals I've bought and sold over the last 5 years and not once have I even looked at the sides of switches for micro dents or scratches. I fail to see the problem.
Some of my pedals have paint missing from the corners, I think I may need trauma counseling.
Get this... I saw some guy demo a pedal on Youtube the other day and he used his foot to turn it on. I mean, come on. Leave it on the table and use your fingers like the rest of us.
The reverberations will be felt through the used pedal market for decades.
