MK50 II Footswitch Cable

Post by Gadget » Mon Feb 23, 2015 8:34 pm

My MK50 II was one of the first off the bench and its footswitch has a 5-pin DIN connection. At some point (anyone know when?) the connection seems to have changed to a 6-pin connection for later models.

Anyway, I need a short length of the 6-core+screen cable which runs between footswitch and amp so I can build a new short lead.

It's labelled "7-6-2C MNB". I've seen some for sale on eBay and Farnell, but can't seem to find it in short lengths and don't fancy paying £40 or so for the 1m I need.

Anybody know where I can get it by the metre?

Did you get any luck? My cable crapped out on me and I'm having trouble finding a quality and hassle free equivalent. Ps. Mines is the 6-pin

No - still looking for something suitable without costing an arm and a leg.

I'm tempted to cut a metre or so off my existing cable and fit a couple of new connectors, but would still rather just build a new lead if poss...
