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)

bought the Tenderfoot in regular and the Firm version too placed under my Nuc i7 and PS10 PS Audio and that gives a more relaxed and natural sound than using Elemente Finite products

Brought the best out of my DAC and amps

Under my DAC and amps, it helped extract a little more detail, deeper textures, giving a little more palpably to instruments. No apparent sonic colorations, a very benign accessory. I also have the tall version under my Vidar monos, the overall effect is commutative and provide a noticeable sonic improvement.

I purchased the extra firm tenderfoot (4 of them) for under my Naim Uniti Atom. I do think the sound is now a bit more focused than before. I’ll probably be ordering some fat dots for my speakers as well. Great customer service also. Personal attention to questions is appreciated.

Works really well! A little more of everything.

Squeezed a little more detail out of my system. Instrument textures are just a little more real, more palpable. Instrument séparation and imaging improved. Made my all Schiit system a little more transparent and dynamic. No apparent negative side effects. I’m adding more Herbie products to my system... :-)

Baby Booties

Put baby booties on a pair of Klipsch RP-500 dolby atoms speakers sitting atop my PSB synchrony's. The difference was immediate and VERY noticeable. Deeper bass, clearer highs and mid range. Also a tad louder. Wonderful product and I highly recommend.
