I bought it new, but like I said I've had it for longer than a year so it's no longer under warranty. Just got an email back from Eventide… yeah I'm not going to give you guys $100 and wait a few months to replace two shitty switches. Not sure what you mean by a gritty environment, but it certainly hasn't been submerged. It's only used in my bedroom, at practice, and shows. I've never brought it to a woodshop or a steel mill if that's what you're asking.
I found some similar switches on Mammoth Electronics. Think these might work https://www.mammothelectronics.com/collections/switches/products/4sfsspst-m?
I just want something that
- is easy to press
- actually turns on/off when pressed
- works fine with barefoot buttons
Yeah, I would still recommand our footswitches (https://store.eventideaudio.com/collections/accessories/products/h9-replacement-footswitch) cause they are very durable based on my use experience, and we have been using these switches for so many years. However, you may use whatever footswitches you like, as long as they work properly.
