SOLD INDIVIDUALLY, NOT AS A SET (4 recommended for most components)

 

Individually molded with a proprietary platinum-cure silicone blend formulated in-house in consultation with Wacker Chemie AG of Germany for maximum micro-vibration absorption. Recommended for audio and video components weighing from 2 to 220 pounds (100kg).

Particularly well-suited for CD/DVD and SACD players, DACs, Blu-ray Players, preamps, power supplies and conditioners, turntables, and power amplifiers. Delivers a full-bodied and quick, highly articulate result with amazing linear extension. Works equally well with solid-state and tube components. Does not "ooze," mar, or discolor surfaces. A thin decoupling grungebuster Dot is adhered to the base of each Tenderfoot (Extra-Firm version has black grungebuster Dot).

Two versions available:

TenderSoft: for components weighing 40 pounds or less (18kg)

Extra-Firm: for components of virtually any weight up to 220 pounds (100kg).

Dimensions: 1.1" x 1.1" x .65" tall. (28mm x 16.5mm). Default recommendation: four Tenderfoot isolation feet per component.

Though scarcely ever really needed, pressure-sensitive adhesive is an available option.


Big Tall Tenderfoot: Same as above except molded extra tall to lift components free of tall factory feet. Also great for turntables having severe footfall or other macro-vibrational issues. Superior upgrade for AR, Thorens, and VPI suspension springs.

Dimensions: 1.18" x 1.18" x 1.02" tall. (30mm x 30mm x 25.9mm)

Superb improvement with imaging

The big tall / extra firm tenderfoot have created a noticeable improvement in my system, the music has better resolution and imaging. I've placed these under the Uptone JS-2 DC power supply. After hearing the results, I ordered another set.

Wonderful

I have the tenderfoot under my Jadis Orchestra Black. The amplifier is 46 lbs, with most of the weight in the back, on the left side. The tenderfoot provides a stable platform, given the odd distribution of weight. They are solid yet supple and easy to use. I ordered more from Herbies!

Tenderfoot

Great product and easy to attach. These are being used under a pair of Essence Jasper monoblocks, with Herbie’s stud gliders supporting their floating power supplies.

I was skeptical, but with VPI offering a sorbothane replacement for the springs in my HW-19, there had to be something to it and all the positive reviews on these, I gave it a shot. Seems like the reviews that I'd read were mostly on point. What I notice is accurate, defined bass more than anything. No change in the soundstage width on my setup but it was worth it for the low end detail. I would do it again, and I'm sure my thirty year old springs were well worn out anyway. They're a little short on the my turntable, so I unclipped the springs and left the adjustable spring bases in there to compensate. Had to replace the round top screws with flat, machine screws. Worked out well.

The slimming of the bass

Amazing product works well to tighten up flabby bass. Recommended under amps, speakers, and source components.

tender feet

used tenderfeet and bases to eliminate the sprung suspension of my VPI HW 19MKIV Nice upgrade! Cleared up a resonance that was apparent in recordings of keyboards and pianos.

Nice Feet

Works well with all audio gear. They are neither bright nor dark with a fat bass. In fact, my gear did not change the sound that I paid for and enjoyed, unlike spikes and other overbuilt and priced footers that cost hundreds, and all they did is strip the sound of color, body, and overtones just for a clean sound with a loss of natural dynamics. I was surprised to say the least, I brought mine for the fun of it, thinking last call on footers, done with them, well, I'll be buying more.

More control, more separation

It was a big suprise to me what some good footers can do. I attached them to my integrated amp and it feels like there is more control and the instruments are a bit more separated from eachother. Awesome tweak!

Tenderfeet

I don't have a high end turntable. It's a 1980 Onkyo CP-1280F. The original feet had some foam and springs; they're long gone. So I put a double set of tenderfeet underneath where the footers would go AND put that on a 4" maple block which also has double tenderfeet underneath it! That's 16 tenderfeet underneath the turntable! Do I have footborne vibrations?! NO! Does my music sound great?! Yes!

Tenderfeet to the Rescue

One can count on Herbie’s products 100%. Why? Because they work 100%. As my system has reached its zenith it’s easier and easier to discern what Herbie’s products do. One can get great results by purchasing four Tenderfeet and slapping them under a product. I’ve always heard the results of adding Herbie’s products to my system. But as your system improves one can not only hear the improvement that’s made by you’ll find where each Tenderfoot is placed under a component makes a big difference. Just moving them a few mm at a time is easily heard. If you can’t hear what placement position does or heaven forbid what they do on first placement then your system needs done work. It’s not the Herbie’s product at fault that’s for sure. And you know even if you don’t like them or hear what they can do they have a 60 day no question return policy. So buy a few as Mom and Dad give them a try. I’ve used: Tenderfeet (all four varieties, Big Fat Dots, Supersonic Stabilizers, Baby Booties, Tube Dampers, Giant Sliders, and more.
