    would a missing LED on a pedal affect the functionality of the pedal in any way? or am i just being crazy?

    Well, it'll affect whether or not you can tell the effect is on or off before playing a note, obviously . . .

    It is unlikely that a missing LED would cause a pedal not to function, but it may be an indication of additional damage to the pedal.

    im pretty sure you can buy those leds are radioshack and throw it in their yourself with the guide from many people on this website. If not im pretty sure the website is www.indyguitarist.com hell fix it for you. but no it wont hurt anything it may cause problems live when you are all confused with different pedals on and such.

    i just ordered a Morley PWB off of Ebay but i thought i read somewhere a while ago that missing LEDs in pedals could affect the functionality of the pedal but i just now realized that the description says thats the pedal is fully functional soi guess i got nothing to worry about
