    I lost the nut on the pedal switch of my Strymon Flint. I was wondering if anyone knows where I can get it? Does Canadian Tire, Princess auto or any of these places have it? I tried looking for it online and I found a set of 4 for $4.45 in Amazon but the shipping is $7.00 which I don't mind but it will take 10 days to deliver. So are those places I mentioned carry it?

    If it's a normal size stompswitch, I may have some. And Jon/Nextgen may also have some. You're welcome to bring it on by and we can try some on for size. I'm around this evening and tomorrow morning.

    @player99 maybe it's Lance Armstrong pedal syndrome, lost one nut. Except the pedal isn't lying about PED??

    Just as well. I have to go in to the Heart Institute tomorrow after lunch for some routine testing. I wouldn't even be able to offer you coffee since I've been told caffeine is verboten. And my wife is working from home tomorrow, so dead silence will be the order of the day. Thursday will be perfect. See you then.

    So did I when I first saw the thread title. Prompted, I suppose, by the "when did you go gear crazy" thread.

    Of course, when you need a guitar-pedal nut, I suppose the best person to consult IS a guitar pedal nut. ;)

    This proves once again, all the action is in Ottawa.

    Truth be known, I came in thinking this was like a support group for pedal users........"nuts".

    I have contacted the company that built the unit, and they sent me the exact nut in an envelope, free. DigiTech and ProCo were a couple of companies that helped me out.

    I did go to the Strymon website and they are actually selling it. Except the shipping was too much.
