DT25 Combo footswitch
by Finewest on 2012-12-27 10:26:23.8100

As in which one to get? I found a old Marshall one with two switchs; one for channel and one for reverb. I thought I read in Line 6 docs you can use a simple two switch footswitch that will control the channel selection and reverb on and off. I can swithc channels, but not reverb. The connector plug is a 1/4 inch and has the two (stereo) connector rings. Whazzzz up!? Thanks for any help.

The switch has to be a latching type...It might be that the Marshall is momentary on the reverb...If it is a momentary, then it likely would switch the verb ON or OFF when you hold the switch down and revert when you release it...or maybe something has come undone in the connector or the switch...

Have you check the footswitch with a meter? sleeve should be ground...Tip and Ring are hot for the channel and verb...That should tell you really quickly if the FX is doing what it should...

Great advice! I bet it's the momentary type. Any advice on a brand; does Line 6 make one? Thanks!
