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)
I have been using Herbies tube dampers for years they for sure lessen vibration and improve imaging , their Tenderfeet are excellent , I just bought a new Denafrips dac and just putting these tall tender feet under it gave a more cohesive performance especially soundstage depth and imaging , Paul J Letteri.
After I installed four (4) Herbie’s Audio Lab Tenderfeet under my dac/pre and headphone amp, I realized how much more musical my system sounded. The high & midrange frequencies emerged more clearly, while the bass introduced more impact. I believe the Tenderfeet’s improvement provides a big improvement over the gear’s stock footers. Comparing my system with and without the Tenderfeet proved to me I much prefer Herbie’s Audio Lab Tenderfoot devices. Thank you Robert.
My Keces phono preamp has two chassis. I already had three of these under each chassis. Now they have four under each box. More stable, and better sound with four.
Used them under arcam reciever and arcam power amp in a mid Atlantic rack. Made sound more transparent.
Calmed down my rowdy MC225. Great price and visually innocuous. I'll have to get some more.
I purchased "Von Schweikert Special " big improvement on sound for my speakersthen decided to purchase "Tenderfoots" for my tube amplifiers. All I can say I made the right choice, bigger and clearer bass, highs and a bigger sound stage What else can I say but WOW!!!!! Aloha
I used a total of 8 Tenderfoots. 4 of which replaced the stock feet of my Yggdrasil DAC and the other on my music server. Prior to these footers, one could feel vibration on both components when listening at moderately high volumes. This is terrible for digital clocks. This is no longer an issue with the Tenderfoot! There is also a slight improvement in soundstage which I am very excited about. Vibration control should be taken seriously and this is an affordable way to delve into component level vibration control. Cheers
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.
