Jazz Chorus Footswitches

Postby VREEEEVROOOOOW » Sat Feb 03, 2018 2:49 pm

Bit of a newbie question here. My JC-40 manual says I can use a BOSS FS-5L for the chorus effect. But, near as I can tell, anything that can do on/off should in principle suffice. Is there any reason I can't use a BOSS FS-1, or maybe something even simpler/cheaper? What should I be looking for to know that it'll work with my chorus effect?

What you want is a standard latching (on/off only) footswitch, not "momentary.

That's all it says in that.

Standard Echoplex/Space Echo/etc style on-off should work providing the unit has 1/4" jacks (my Jazz Chorus is 30-something years old, so I don't have a current one!)
My pedalboard costs approximately 191 Metal Zones.
