Many VFE pedals had that feature.
The very best pedals actually feature a laser diode that etches the company logo into the ceiling and/or your retina.
Once, I had to turn off all my pedals really fast because a 747 was about to land on them. That was one of the few outdoor gigs I've played.
I pretty much don’t sell any of my pedals unless I really don’t like it.
I've only noticed this recently, may have been either my EQD Bellows or Fender Pelt Fuzz.
I guess this is a good way to keep you from looking down all the time when you're playing.
I give you...
The alternating red/blue tap tempo LEDs of the Behringer Echo Machine lights up the room like a police car at a crime scene.
I use the MXR 10 band EQ... and those bright lights have been enough to light me on stage in some small venues that have dark stages and not enough room for lights. So I'm not complaining!
I do have a small light bar for emergencies... but in the absence of any stage light... I point that at my singer.
Boss has it right.....just sayin
Which these days most likely means the venue is on fire and you shouldn't be staring at your pedals anyway.
Want to make an LED less bright? Solder a resistor in series with the LED. Now you control the brightness. Want to make it variable? Solder a potentiometer in place of the resistor. Can't solder? Cover it with a dab of paint.
Be the solution rather than a vessel for the problem.
My Megatone Classic Overdrive has a very bright green L.E.D., so I put a piece of Green electrical tape over it, and that tamed it for my eyes.
OP: "The more expensive the pedal the brighter the led. Please stop it!"
EQD Plumes: "Hold my beer."
Wow this is a new gem in this ridiculous endeavor: threats of a class action lawsuit over an LED indicator. Have to mention that one to my therapist that I’ve been visiting since I got into this business.
Well, it was one person and probably from the USA. I'm trying to keep it light but effective.
Cool musicians wear sunglasses at all times, even indoors. Problem solved.
Seriously though - someone asked for evidence around blue light being toxic to photoreceptors in the eyes. Here's a link to a story about the research guys from University of Toledo did: https://www.forbes.com/sites/robert...smartphone-harmful-to-your-eyes/#64f3f3c25c75
But you don't stare at your pedal led as long and often as your phone. Please try to keep it practical please.
