  • Laney... I Can't Seem to Find a Way to Get a #%$# Footswitch for the VH100R!!

    I got a really good deal on a VH100R around a year or so ago, but it didn't come with a footswitch. I didn't think too much of it at the time, assuming I'd just buy one from a dealer or on ebay later.



    I kind of blew it off for a long time. Now I'm looking for one and having a difficult time, and I've read that Laney won't even sell them without buying an entire new amp. I also read the FS's are of weak quality to boot. WTF? Maybe they're only intended to be studio amps. I'd considered a Voodooman version of the pedal in the past but read a thread a long time ago warning to avoid it.



    Anyway, it'd be cool to find a way to get something together, but after scouring the web I'm not sure that'll happen -- or at least not anytime soon. So, unless I'm wrong, I'm probably going to off it and stay away from that company in the future. Anyone have any idea how to replace it or maybe have similar gear stories?

    **************** Voodooman in his scamming ****************ing ass. I know some people have had good luck with him, but he ripped me off. Never saw the ****************ing pedal, never got my money back, never got a reply nothing.



    Since I love old Peavey amps, those usually have impossible to find footswitches. Nice I have a VTM now so I don't have to worry about it.



    Here is another dude making VH100r footswitches. Don't know anything about them though.



    Edit: Took link out because its still the scammer dude.

      Damn, I'm sorry to hear what happened to you. That's the type of thing it seems I heard happened to a number of people. That really sucks. I'm glad you dig your VTM, though. I've always wanted one but was completely broke when one was for sale in a pawn locally for very cheap.



      Oh, and thanks for that link! I'll check into it!

          Eh, partially my own fault. Thankfully I was just out like $50 or something.

            I never used all 4 switches so actually just used a marshall switch with two buttons and soldered up the right switching config on a midi jack

            then I used the g-major to switch it

              Careful. Black Label IS Voodoo Man. Just a different name because his name is so toasted.

              He's a local guy here in CA and he's done a lot of work for me over the years, great dude to deal with.

                I'm glad it wasn't for more, but I know sometimes $50 can be a lot, especially if you have to put down even that much more to find another one! Hopefully if I try through this site it'll work out well, and it's a good price IMO. I appreciate the warnings of those who've experienced bad things with a vendor as well as posts about the good deals.

                Thanks for the reply. I've wired up an XLR jack for an old Vox 2-button FS to work with my previous older Carvin X100B's, just working 2 of 3 functions, but have never tried to wire up a midi jack and don't have an fx processor, though I've always liked the tones I've heard from the G-Majors. Maybe I can look into which of the midi lugs do what, though I also understand the orginal pedal is somehow powered from the amp, which has caused me to wonder if I might not be able to figure out how to rewire another FS.

                        That's a good idea. I'm just not sure there's a local tech who'd do it.

                            Okay, and thanks! That's a nice-looking FS, too.

                              I sure wouldn't want to say anything bad about Voodooman Switches, since mine finally arrived within days of having had to actually contact the friggin' Washington State Attorney General to get him to ship. All that time spent putting paperwork through the Better Business Bureau and stuff, why, that was just peachy. Plus, on mine, the led's light up when you're on a clean channel, which is kind of counter-intuitive. Sure, it works,, but it's like having the hot water faucet on the right side of the sink-the whole rest of the world works the other way, so it's minor consolation that you still have hot water. No, don't write off Voodooman Switches, he sure gave me a good two months' worth of aggravation on top of a lame product. Peavey sells a whole slew of different footswitches, and has excellent customer service. Mojotone too maybe?
