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)

Last SQ tweak, best value, so worthwhile

After experiencing consistent improved SQ upgrading components, cables, interconnects, power cables and conditioner, I installed threaded stud gliders and one set of Tenderfoot isolators last month. Back for more Tenderfoot isolators this month having experienced improved sound quality. Yes, a testimonial, but based in reality. Very pleased. Easily the best value ever in audio.

Simple and Effective Upgrade

I’m using these under my turntable and the difference is noticeable. The bass is clear and tight, and in general I’m hearing more clarity and less distortion.

Fantastic Tweet

I purchased 4 feet and put them under my Rega Brio Amplifier. I wish I could put into words effectively the startling improvement it has made. I am hearing my system in ways I have never heard before and just want to play my whole collection of Cd's. It has got me excited about music again and I find myself listening more to the "performance" rather than just the recording.

Best bang for the buck ever

Tenderfeet made a noticeable improvement on my DAC and CD transport so I’m buying some more.

Tenderfeet for amp and phono stage

They were delivered quickly and looked very high quality and much softer than rubber. Perfect size to just exceed the height of my existing feet so I didn't have to remove them. Haven't heard a sound difference per se, but I am sure they will help with any vibrations affecting those boxes.

always great

As always, Herbie’s delivery was prompt and everything was handled professionally. I love the individual products - made a huge difference in my system. Reviewed them already individually.

Herbies Tenderfoot positive feedback from Parmenter Sound

Dear Robert I would like to thank you for your wonderful Isolation product the Herbies Tenderfoot. I am incorporating your Big Tall Extra Firm Tenderfeet in my Parmenter Sound audio racks to isolate the shelves from the rack frame. The Tenderfoot Isolation product is excellent at reducing vibration from footfall and wood floor vibrations. I am so pleased with your Herbies Tenderfeet that I have made them a standard part of my audio rack design. Very highly recommended audio component. Thank you Jason Parmenter. www.parmentersound.com

Tenderfoot works

Placed four under my Peachtree Nova integrated amp. I was surprised at the effect they had on the sound. Everything sounds cleaner/tighter. I did a few before and after comparisons and there was definitely a change for the better.

Tenderfoot helped well!!

The first use of Tenderfeet was under my Rega TT installed in a compromised environment to remedy feedback, it helped. Then moved the TT to another system/location that I thought was not compromised and enjoyed spinning the vinyl, but sometimes wondered why it was not wowing me more. Voila! Dropped the 3 Tenderfeet under the Rega factory feet and detail was back in spades from controlling vibrations. Also ordered a set to put under my beautiful Eico tube amp. Didn't expect much improvement there, but once they came, dropped them under and you could tell immediately a substantial improvement in SQ. If you think of it simply, it does make sense: the same music vibrations you are enjoying can feed their way back to our tools that are reproducing music and cloud the presentation with destructive interference. Some folks whine about the cost of Herbie's products: they are excellently designed and worth every penny in a system that is of sufficient quality to notice such things. Thanks!
