Ok fellas, I need some input...Using wood and rope, I built a way to give your foot precise control over any effect knob of practically any electric guitar pedal. On a basic level, this would allow you to control the level in your distortion pedal (effectively a volume pedal). More interestingly, using this with certain pedals (delay, phaser, tremolo, etc...) creates completely unique sounds. These can be layered for an infinite number of options.

Some Features:
The attachment has a small footprint and works with every existing guitar pedal.
You don't need to keep your foot raised to turn the knob (like the "Hot Foot").
Adjustment is very natural and as precise as using your fingers.
Targeted knob can be adjusted quickly and on the fly during shows.

I think that every guitar player (especially those playing live shows) could use something like this.

My question is this:
What would you be willing to pay for something like this and do you think you could use it?

If you've built it, we want to see a video of it in use before deciding if it's any good....

I play a guitar, not a pedalboard. I do remember once seeing a Megadeth show where Mustaine was doing his own pedals. He spent the entire set standing in once place to be near his board. It was so damned boring.

Doesn't occur to you then that Mustaine, who is also the singer, was standing still so he could do things like... sing?
