Kind of a filler post here…but lately, I’ve been outfitting my pedals’ bypass indicators with these fresnel lens covers instead of bezels. Generally speaking, I think a lot of pedal manufacturers need to tone it down with the brightness of these LEDs. Perhaps it’s common that stage lights (or playing outdoors) warrant an annoyingly bright indicator, but I always felt it was overkill.Â If I ever ran into the issue, I’d just change the LED resistor to something higher, or I’d just swap the LED (usually water clear) to a diffused one.
Anyway, back to these lenses. I just think they look great. I really like the way they diffuse the light, even in cases where the LED is brighter than I’d normally like it.
This Foxpedal Refinery actually had a fresnel lens cover (flat version) for the LED, but I replaced it the one seen here and swapped the red LED with a warm white one. Since this pedal is always on, this LED is now like a mini lantern!
