DC3 chanel switch help please!

Post by Kels866 » Tue Jan 19, 2016 1:43 pm

Hi all,

I have a DC3 and have lost the lead for the chanel footswich on the front panel. I've tried a stereo lead but it just flips it to the lead chanel and the foot switch doesn't work.

I'm not techy at all and have no real idea about leads/cables ect so would anyone know exactly what cable I would need for the footswich to work?

Thank you so much for your help!!

What kind of footswitch do you have? a single button that you normally plug into the front? If so then any old guitar cable will do.

I have an original footswitch, and when the led blew, the switch for that function stopped working. As riku asked, which footswitch do you have?

Mk IIA->C+ DRGX head "Cold Sweat" in GTS shell
1966 Fender Pro Reverb
DC-3 head
Orange Dual Terror
EVM loaded Thiele; MS-12 1/2 back
71 SG; 72 Tele; 76 White Strat; 77 LP Custom; 81 Goldtop; 05 Am Dlx Strat; 11 G0 plaintop

Hi all,

Thank you for your reply!!

I have the original footswitch. I have tried a normal guitar cable and it doesn't do anything. I tried a stereo cable and they just put it straight to lead but didn't switch.

Do you think I should try and order a cable from Boogie?

Thank you so much for your help!

All the best
Kelly
