    I have a small stash of stick-on rubber feet in 2 sizes, as well as spare velcro. If I need to change what's on the base of a pedal, it's no problem to me.

    Btw for pedals where I don't want to spoil the rubber base and/or label (vintage Boss, Ibanez/Maxon), I use a pedal boot:

    I really have no problem with it because I don`t use any pedals:p
    If I would be on the search the velcro would not be a deal-breaker. I could always peel it off the pedal. No problem at all.

    Should not be a deal breaker to anyone who has been
    "around" ;) .....and I think most of us have!

    Gaffer tape leaves residue........and you can't wash it for re-use........

    I think the only pedal I ever bought second hand was before velcro was invented!

    Audept, could you please PM me her address and telephone number?

    Advertise them as 'pre-velcroed' and charge extra.

    Of course. The stock stuff sucks tone and kills sustain.

    Doesn't goo gone take the paint off the pedal though? I'm always nervous about that stuff.
