Single Rectifier footswitch

Post by mikelaunslager » Mon Mar 27, 2006 10:42 pm

So, my single recto footswitch isn't working properly. The footswitch is working for the solo function, but I can't get it to work for channel switching. Anyone had this problem, or know what I may be doing wrong?

Take a screwdriver or a small piece of wire and short the pins in your cable to ground (probably the outer metal ring, but possible another of the pins). If you can get it to switch channels something is wrong with the footswitch. If you can't get it to switch channels the cable is dead and needs replacement.
Ignore the hype and trust your ears. Play more, buy less = better tone.
