Over the last two months, I’ve been promoting a product that I’m really proud of, called The Pedal Label System. Basically, in a nutshell these are labels that are ready to be applied on basically any pedal out there to mark and record your settings. When gear moves from gig to gig, or sometimes during the night’s performance, your knobs get knocked out of place. This is a simple and easy way to see if something is a miss and to verify things are where they should be.
Now, how is this better than masking tape on the pedals? Simple, the labels, for one, look pro and consistent on the board. People will say to me “they almost look like they’re a part of the pedal”, and that was one of the goals. To blend into the pedal and do what it’s suppose to do – be a place to record your settings. Second advantage is the material we chose to use for the labels. These labels will not tear when you peel them from the pedal and use a low-tack adhesive so it won’t leave that glue gunk behind. I know you know what I’m talking about. So the labels go on tight, but peel clean and leave no residue. If you need to update your settings, no worries, peel it off and add a new one. Need to sell the pedal? No worries, peel the label off and it’s good to go.
Recently, I did a podcast with GearPipe where we talked about the Pedal Label System – “Interview with Hank Donovan of EffectsBay [4OnTheFloor]”
I wanted to post this tonight, to let you know if you buy a Pedal Label System pack from now to Monday (3/5/2012), I’ll throw in 2 extra 9″x4″ sheets. You normally get 6 individual sheets with 111 labels, and I’m throwing in 2 more for a total of 8 9″x4″ sheets in a pack. That’ll be plenty for your big pedal boards and enough for changes and even a few for bandmates, etc.

Seriously, this is a really great idea. One of those things you wonder just how you lived without them. For the minimal cost it’s really a no-brainer. Just what I needed for a few of my pedals. No more fast (and inaccurate) guesswork doing critical set-ups. The fact they are totally removable without a trace is really the icing on the cake.For the price of a beer or two you’re all set…..Reply
