I am seeking a footswitch for my Vox AD50VT, but I am a little reluctant to spend £30 on a new one if they can be made easily enough? I can't imagine the electronics are very difficult. Does anyone know the basic principles behind their operation?

On a similar note (excuse the pun :lol: ), will a Marshall 2-channel footswitch work on my amp? These seem to surface from time to time in the second hand market but the VFS2 is a lot rarer (in fact I dont' think I've seen a single one second hand anywhere!).

Thanks

Rob

I would guess that any 2 button footswitch with a 3 conductor 1/4 inch plug should work just fine.
Maybe something like this

At the very least, it shouldn't cause any damage.

Thanks. I have since managed to source a footswitch for £10 so decided to put the home-build idea on a backseat! :mrgreen:
