There's lots of things to consider of course but here's one reason I like using my BOSS pedals more than my other brands. The size of the button! It's not even a button it's the entire lower half of the pedal! I move around quite a bit on stage and some times do a bit of tap dancing on the board. Having a huge target to hit with my foot has really saved my butt on some gigs. I hate having the tiny little dime sized target that comes with some other manufacturers. Anyone care to venture why more builders don't use a similar design? I see no flaws whatsoever with it.
