    I have been looking at the layout of this pedal and cannot help but wonder if it is possible to hit the foot switches without kicking the knobs. I love the top loaded jacks, but why make the pedal so narrow and cram the controls together?

    Any thoughts (and please don't turn this into a thread about other pedals).

    Either find a suitably sized washer to fit under the knobs. From recollection there's a fair amount of clearance. Or, if you don't care about the looks, take the knobs off. Set and forget

    ...and yes, I found that I was constantly knocking the settings with my foot! 😊

    I have to be very careful about mine. I've also got it front and center on my board to limit reach and (hopefully) increase accuracy in hitting the footswitch and nothing else.

    Thanks guys. This pretty much confirms what I feared.

    Has to be one of the worst design concepts ever...

    We have been putting rubber mini washers on lately, underneath the knobs.

    Controls stay put really good this way. I used one at a blues jam the other night and had no problems but I had pointy shoes on.
