Plain and simple, what is the cheapest way to ship single pedal (specifically a Boss DS-1). Would UPS or the post office be cheaper, and how much padding is needed?
USPS is cheaper. Definitely use that, UPS sucks. Use your judgement for the padding, it's better to have too much than too little.
I always use USPS for small items, like pedals. It used to cost me only $3.95 to ship a pedal in 2+ days via USPS. Within the past two years it now costs me around $5.30 to ship a pedal in the same amount of time, packed the same way, same size boxes, and the same weight.
thanks souperman08 i was wondering the same thing
