MK50 Footswitch alternative?

Post by Gadget » Wed Feb 18, 2015 10:58 am

Has anybody found a good straight-swap alternative footswitch for the MK50?

I see on eBay and the like that there are plenty of jack connection dual footswitches with LEDs from lots of different manufacturers from Fender to Orange, but does anyone know of one that works without modification?

I do still have my original which I could mod, but I'd prefer to leave it that way (I'm funny like that!). I've also posted a wanted ad, so if you have a spare I could mod insted, let me know.

Nope....they seem to be wired in reverse. I use a g-lab switcher in my rack and that works with the MK50 so I rekon you could make any type work by swapping the jack connections though.

If you're talking about the regular MK50 2 button switch I used to use a Marshall pedal... Just relabel the switches. HTH

Any you know of with working LEDs though, especially given the aforementioned reverse wiring?
