So they are called stompboxes, meaning you're going to step on them. And they have a footswitch to accomplish said stomping. So why is it that some pedal makers put the switch so close to the knobs that you can't step on the switch without hitting a knob (or toggle switch or other control). I've got size 12 shoes. If you're designing for supermodels or are expecting me to start a footbinding ritual you're sorely mistaken. One reason I like my Mail Bomb is the switch is all the way at the bottom of the box, away from the knobs. OK, I feel better now. Well, not really. I need coffee, then I'll feel better.
