I've had a Quad for ove a year, and finally picked up an FU-2 pedal off of eBay. The footswitch did not come with a cable, so I tried to make my own.

It didn't work. Are the wires in the cable supposed to be shielded?

I opened up the FU-2, and it looks like I only need four wires, no ground. I took my time soldering, and made sure they were connected right. If it does not require a shielded cable, my next option is to undo one side, and test the wires un soldered in various combinations. Wish me luck.

I should have checked the manual! Ok, it's supposed to be shielded.

It worked! Now I don't have to buy another one on eBay, but there is one on there right now:
