  • Picked up some Mooer Candy Toppers....

    Just ordered some Mooer Candy Toppers in black and white. Anyone else here use these? I decided to switch to these from Barefoot Buttons as I recently discovered the Barefoot Buttons mounting screws dig into the side of the footswitch it's mounted on causing some cosmetic damage (bothersome to me). Plus these Mooer Toppers are alot more affordable than the Barefoot Buttons so I can use them on my whole rig and not spend a fortune.

    Let me know how these work out for you. I bought a cheap Chinese knockoff and they didnít work at all. The switch hole was too deep.

      I do not see the need for these. Just don't get it.

        Because you play live wearing cowboy boots.

          Theres several reasons for these. 1) In general to make the footswitch button target bigger so they are easier to hit when you need to engage them. 2) The bigger button expands the pressure point area so it doesn't hurt when you engage switches when you aren't wearing shoes. 3) The bigger target also helps so that you don't miss the switch because it ends up between your toes when you go to step on it without shoes.

          I usually play at home wearing socks so these kinds of things are useful to me and worth having.

              They're great. Been using them about a year and I have nothing negative to say about them.

                  They do make it easy to play barefoot. I have to pick up one for my looping pedal. Just one.

                    I also do not get hippie barefoot musicians either. Obviously not marketed at me....

                      Lmao.... donít do the barefoot thing either.
                      My interest is mostly for my tuner/wireless pedal. Itís in the back of my board and somewhat difficult to get at.

                        I am never barefoot when I play out, but at home I am. Julie is barefoot a lot, though. And it would work for her looper.

                          I'm very concerned as a few people have reported that these are really hard to get off, if by chance you need to, and you risk ripping off the button of the actual footswitch.

                            I agree - seems like a good option for non-front-row pedals.
