Double Footswitch cable question?

Post by leeowensoas1 » Wed Oct 02, 2019 4:13 am

So controlling channel and reverb on my RV100 MKIII with an orange 2-button footswitch, could I use a double key TS cable like this?

Also if I wanted to throw just a single pedal in the effects loop could I use this?

It's pretty pricey, but should do the job.


Bear in mind that for footswitches, the cables only transfer an electrical signal - no sound actually goes through it, so nothing is importany beyond cable reliability.

Got to admit, for a single pedal in the fx loop, that'd be neat..... but once you get one.... the 2nd might follow quite quickly..... :wink:

this will work just as well for the pedal:

and cost $13. Will it sound as good in the loop? I have a shorter one that I'm using to run a reverb in the loop of a Marshall Origin, and it sounds fine -- by which I mean the amp doesn't sound different at all as you switch the loop in & out, except for the reverb.
