Super bright LEDs
Am I the only one who dislikes 'super bright LED's'? Maybe because my effects are on a table at waist level... I don't see the need for them, and they actually hurt my eyes (that could just be me getting older). Anyway, I think the super-bright trend is dumb, and I hope it's over some day. But maybe they are really useful, like if your band uses a fog machine. But I've had to put tape on some of my effects, to compensate for the brightness.
What say you?

I like them whenever I have to play a daytime gig outside. Love them then! You can always put some tape over the bright ones, but there's really no helping the old dim red ones on a bright sunny stage. Those effects might as well not even have LEDs in those situations.

Aha, the daytime outdoor gig didn't occur to me...
good for negative photographs and glowing sculptures

I don't like to be guessing "is this thing on?" so, I vote 'Aye'.

The Genz Benz GBE1200 i owned was worse than my pedals.... Man that thing had lots of blinding lights!
I do like pedals to be bright as I play a lot of outdoor gigs. As an example, a Boss TU-2 is basically unreadable in direct sunlight but a TC Polytune is super bright outside.

i had some friends of mine complain about the LED on my REDDI. They were in the audiance...

I get blinded by some of my pedals, don't like these new super bright blue LEDs.
Easily fixed by putting a piece of white electrical tape over them though, and the tape can come off outdoors.
