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)
Gave these a try as I read so much about the effects of vibration isolation. Was skeptical but then amazed. Made very noticeable difference. Harshness on highs much improved. Using them on multiple components now. Thanks Herbie's! And by the way, Robert Herbelin spoke with me on the phone and by email. Was very helpful and responsive, and even sent me some extra parts. Thanks.
I purchased sets of 4 for my Atma-sphere M-60 amplifiers and my Coincident CSL pre amp. The tenderfeet replaced the stock feet. The amps and pre are placed on solid racks and I use tube dampeners for the 6SN7 and 101D tubes. The tenderfeet make a subtle but audible difference. I’ve got a wide assortment of Herbie’s products and so far there is not a single disappointment. The cost benefit ratio on this stuff is generally very high.
All of my components sit on Tenderfoots. Since my new phono preamp has two chassis, I wanted to add more for the power supply.
Been using for 10+ years in various audio-related applications. It just works.
I have purchased several items from Herbies and always noticed significant improvement in sound quality after using them. Isolating my speakers from the stands eliminated the muddy bass and generally cleaned up the sound. They do work.
Works great! Thanks
I recently acquired an Arcam CDS50 cd player. I wanted to improve it's performance and the Tenderfoot seemed a good way to go .Wow what a difference. Detail and sharpness of attack are much improved. Steve Hackett's Genesis Revisited has many complex arrangements. The tenderfoot allowed each instrument to have it's own voice and not just a noise in the mix. Love it. Mike
My turntable's direct drive motor assembly sits on four hard rubber feet and I could hear a hint of rumble while spinning vinyl. I placed four tendersoft tenderfeet under the unit and it eliminated that perceptible rumble.
I have used Tenderfoot under my SoTm switch and router. It gives a better sound with more relaxed sound. Great soundstage and details
I sent you a question about this & never got a reply. For my application I found that 4 Tall Tenderfoots were too much. It softened the sound. I then went to 3 Tall Tenderfoots. It was better but not quite right. I then went to 2 Tall Tenderfoots & 1 regular size. In order to get the right heigh I inserted apiece of cork. I found this to be the best way to use the tenderfoots with the Vennie Rossi LIO amp. I did not want to take off the feet so I needed the Tall. I have used the regular Tenderfoot on other equipment & like what they do. Depending on the type & weight of equipment the tall Tenderfoot may add too much damping where as with the regular Tenderfoot is fine.
After replacing the stock power cable on my Hegel CDP with an upgraded one and hearing the impressive results, I thought I was done. I was wrong. I had already purchased tenderfeet for my turntable, gliders for the speaker spikes and the Von Schweikert fat dots package, so I thought I would give the tenderfeet a try on my CDP. I purchased the tall ones to match the stock height. At first listen the improvement was immediate. Deeper, punchier and tighter bass. More pronounced and cleaner highs, extended decays and wider soundstage. But what I noticed most was the instrument timbre. Wow. Accoustic piano was so lifelike. The same for upright acoustic bass. The performance has moved into the room even further. Highly recommended for CD players. I ordered 3 to match the stock setup but will probably order a fourth for better balance. May even try the sonic stabilizers down the road. It's like an equipment upgrade for a fraction of the cost.
