RE: EDP pedal fix

Title: Re: EDP pedal fix
Not to worry; I have some metal ones here at that sort of price which work well. I can custom-make footcontrollers for anyone whose willing to pay the extra,
Thanks anyway.

The switches, alas, are expensive -- I was told they were $10 each.  They are longer throw than the mouser switches.  I personally love them, but they might not be to everyone's taste.    I find them rhythmically quite accurate, but they need a much stronger push than the mouser switches.  if you still want to know what they are, I can call dbm on Monday and find out --

If these switches are a massive improvement, and I can get them at a sensible price, we may be interested in using them for future manufacture and for replacements.
Are they as responsive as the Mouser switch? I've tried many different ones and while most seem to last longer than the Mouser, none of them have been as precise in operation. There's a real trade-off here, accuracy versus reliability versus cost.
I would love to offer the EDP F/S with accurate switches that last forever but cost the same :)

Just wanted to let all you EDP owners know that I had my pedal upgraded by dbm electronics in NYC.  They seem to have done a great job (tho a bit expensive -- $200), replacing the easily destructible mouser plastic switches with metal things that look as if they could withstand a military campaign -- I'm having great fun stomping my heart away without worrying about breaking anything.  Cheers!
