I used to work at RIM, and dealt with PCB boards. Some PCBs are so frágile and thin, that if you come near them with the soldering iron, the fucking pads just lift.

So yeah, some PCBs are garbage because they are impossible to rework.
For $35.00US, who cares? I've got a bushel of French Toast pedals in my possession. And none of them have broken. I'm just saying it's a good option for getting the genuine Foxx Tone Machine sound.
Not sure why you think im disagreeing with you.

Im only agreeing to the fact that some PCBs are utter crap.

Not disagreeing at all. Just doing the thing where sometimes crap is worth it.

Sometimes the cheap thing is better.

Like ice cream sandwiches. I’ll take the shitty one every time.
