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)

Excellent value, great results

I’ve been ordering Herbie’s Audiolab footers, not to mention tube dampers, for years now. I keep coming back to Herbie’s Audiolab every time I buy a new audio gadget. I’ve used the baby booties (and big baby booties) with small gadgets like streamers and smaller headphone amplifiers, where they do a great job. The Tenderfeet (Tenderfooties?) are best under DACs. Their performance with amplifiers is somewhat less unambiguous: they worked great with a tube amplifier I had until recently. Not sure if they’re equally adept with solid-state items. Be that as it may outstanding value and great service. Viva Herbie’s Audiolab.

Good products, good price

I bought a number of tenderfoots to put under my Antipodes K50 Music Server, Aries Cerat Kassandra DAC and MusikLab M300 Power Amps when I installed the equipment into a new rack. The rack itself has no vibration control, and the footers are supporting the equipment chassis directly bypassing whatever footers that equipment has. I'm pleased with the results. The sound hangs together a bit better than it did - it feels more 'right'. I recommend the Herbies approach as a cost effective way to minimise the impact of air / floor transmitted vibrations on sensitive equipment.

Now we're done

My latest purchases were to finally isolation the PS Audio Power Plant and my big tube amp. Both had been sitting on their own factory feet, so let's Herbie them to complete the system full of Herbie feet. More relaxed. That's the impression I got almost immediately. Perhaps a veil or fuzziness now removed from isolation the Power Plant and further with the Amp. Tweaks are the last frontier of system optimization and Herbie's footers have consistently performed for me.

With Melos 400 power amplifiers

Installing the Tenderfooters under the Melos tube amplifiers gave a noticable improvement in bas tightness and widened the soundstage.

Tenderfeet are the best!

I have been using tenderfeet for many years and have them beneath all of my components. In my system they offer the best performance for the cost, by far, in comparison to other footers I’ve tried. Love them, *highly* recommended!

Tenderfoot Review

I bought four of these to put between my Panasonic DP-UB820 and Lumagen Pro video processor which tends to run a little hot. The Tenderfoots created just right amount of air space between the two units without sacrificing stability whatsoever. A happy purchase.

Herbie's soft Tenderfeet

First it needs to be disclosed that my use of the Tenderfeet are not conventional but are very effective when used as a Vibration Transducer device in conjunction with Walker Audio Resonance control discs. They have proven to be very effective when used on speakers, components, audio rack shelves, power supplies and Acoustic treatments such as ASC Tube traps. Highly recommended in both the intended application under components and as a component of vibration transducers.

Turntable Isolation

Just received my Tenderfeet order and installed underneath the isolation platform (54mm solid birch ply) I built for my Origin Live Sovereign TT. The platform & TT weigh in at a combined c.37kg so sourcing isolation support options were limited & costly. This is a fantastic addition with an immediate improvement to sound quality - bass extension with clarity and air around instruments are two things that stand out. It’s allowing my TT to sound its best in a very musical way. I hoped for some improvement with this purchase, but it has far exceeded my expectations. A superbly cost effective upgrade.
