My blue sky needs a new switch, and my PT-2 hard case fell 6 and a half feet onto my poor Robot Graves Industries Sidereal tonight. Next leg of tour is in two days haha.

I'll be heading over to L&M tomorrow...

That's a crushing blow - good thing it didn't land on your foot.
It was about a foot and change away from landing on my head. My first thought was "well that could have been me."

What pedals is that? What does it do?
Robot Graves Industries Sidereal reverb V1. My friend in New Hampshire works for Black Market Custom amplifiers and decided to get into pedal building as a side gig.

What did it do?
To expand on my answer to Sambonee, it was designed as a dark reverb pedal. I actually won it via a social media contest. I wanted to buy the updated model (4 controls instead of 3), but this is ridiculous haha.

I was using this with my DD-500 and Keeley Caverns to get really big, trailing reverb sounds - I'm bummed it's broken. I'm more bummed that we have shows this week and this pedal was crucial to getting through them!

Great knobs, though, eh? Not a single dent on them. That's a great recommendation for them. The chassis, not so much.

Is there any chanceof it being rehousable?
Builder is confident it is toast.

Yes exactly Budda, have you tried to see if it works?
LED works, no sound.

Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayum

Glad it weren't yer 'ead.

I can get the stomp switch on yer Blue Sky fixed fer ya (dirt easy - unlike most digital pedals Stymon uses proper off-board stomp switches) and if you want, take a look at the Robot Graves to see if anything is salvagable... looks like the PCB woulda been cracked tho, but I seen stranger miracles (especaially if the pots were not board-mounted - could be fine).

I emailed strymon support - they sell switches in their web store. I took it apart to see if there was any noticeable issue. The switch works sometimes. The replacement doesnt require soldering, which is nice.
