I have this problem and the shoes thing too! I'm partially
sighted and find that I have to work pretty much on memorising exactly which
pedals I've pressed as I can't see the detail from sitting or standing position.
The DL4 was OK as I could see the LEDs associated with each footswitch. I asked
an engineer about installing brighter ones and he said it depends upon the
current consumption and whether the circuit can cope with it.
I remember Cara saying in a post that she always plays with
bear feet to trust which pedals she's pushing - I do this in the summer, at
festivals etc, but it feels a bit strange at most gigs!

Here's a thing.
Did a lovely open air gig today
at Will Gile's Exotic Garden in Norwich, great fun, played a good
I was set up on the balcony of the house, spouting out
my sounds across the lovely garden, it never occurred that when the sun came
out, I wouldn't be able to see any of my LEDs on my RC20, soundbite sampler or
guitar FX. Big problem, had to try to create shades while playing.
I usually have the opposite problem, and often need to set up a little light
so I can see the controls.
... and the cats! At one point I had
two moggies climbing between my legs and across my pedal board, and one
perched atop the mixer.
Playing there again next Sunday; must pack
sunshade (but will this encourage rain?) and pepper
