    Default Vintage pedal help

    Alright,

    Dug this up at the parents' house today



    Turns out these are worth some serious dough ($500+). The problem with this is that the rubber grommet (if that's what it's called) deteriorated and is now missing. The part holds the footswitch in place.

    Any ideas on a replacement???

    Should be able to find a rubber grommet at a hardware store.

    Lots of bongs use those rubber grommets, a head shop might have one that fits.

    Or an auto parts place....those same type of rubber grommets are used for routing wires and cables through firewalls into the interior of a vehicle.

    That is one bad ass pedal. I hope you locate what you're looking for.

    I really want to get my hands on one of these old fuzz pedals. I've wanted to clone one for quite some time. Never wanted to spend the dough on it, though.
