    You sir are a better man than me because you fought for your product. Glad it did finally get to you.

      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.

      here is a pdf off the g-major site with the wiring...this will also work for a 2 way f/s

      I switched the reverb on mine so the pin would be a different one for that...it depends on what you want to switch!

        Damn, sorry to hear that but glad you at least got it after all that effort.

          It's easy enough to make. The amp schematic has the details. Should be easy enough to find. If you can't find it I'll send you a copy.

            Years ago I had found the schematic, but yeah, its not too difficult. I did find the foot switch for mine and promptly lost it again. But they had problems switching on their own and stuff. Not the most reliable switching setup.

                www.atg.wa.gov click on consumer complaint, fill out the form, and you might just get your footswitch as fast as UPS can bring it. It sure worked for me, after two months of prodding him with emails and phone calls, writing down false tracking numbers etc. Voodooman actually gave me false tracking numbers. Twice.



                Hope this helps.

                  Eh, this was last year and I don't even have the amp anymore. Thanks though. If I ever get screwed by an internet scam artist again, I'll fight for it.



                  And honestly, I don't know if he intends to be a scammer, but when you set up a website (or two) listing a bazillion different footswitches you make and indicating that you have some in stock (I notice he doesn't do that anymore...) when in fact all it means is you have the PARTS TO BUILD ONE in stock...well, I'm pretty sure you get buried in orders get behind, have shoddy prioritizing, order fulfillment, etc. get way behind and can't keep up, orders fall through the cracks, waahhhhhhh. Well, at that point intentions or not, a scammer you've become.

                    Good on you for giving him the benefit of the doubt, Ovid9. It's mighty Christmassy.



                    The consumer complaint online form has a space where you can request a refund, rather than the product. Just sayin'.

                      I assume you've checked ebay, right? I found two footswitches on there both for only like $40 or something. Ended up selling one with one of the VH100R's. Still have the other, though I really don't switch channels on that amp ever. As everyone has said though, there are other people who can make them pretty easily I guess.





                      If you get an original footswitch, so far mine is fine. It's been carted around and really hammered being loaded and stuff, but I never really switch channels, so I haven't stomped on it a ton. Still works awesome though.
                      I do not accept any liability for anything said in the above post.


                      For your reference, what I'm mostly using right now:
                      Laney VH100R
                      Titan "Cerberus" (sorta)
                      Mesa 4x12, homegrown 6x12 (v30/g12h30)

                        As I have a VH100, the footswitch wasn't weak, but lord that cable sucked. I thought my footswitch was going in less than a year, I get another under warranty in like 2 weeks, well in the mean time I found another DIN cable to try ($5) and it works like a champ.



                        Of course that other I cannot find for the life of me now... I think I left it in a styro case at the other guitarist's place.

                            Be careful with the volume knob as you might be DEAF. MY VH100R gets LOUD fast. I mean boiling paint off of cars at 200 yards loud. I ended up getting a Hot Plate to use with her as she just is LOUD! Before I got that I was told that I need to turn down, no one could hear the drums!



                            To the OP Black Label Switches makes a lot of footswitches and used to list the FS4 for like $70-80 IIRC.



                            Okay, there is a VC50 (2x12 combo version of the VH100) that is available locally that I'd love to have. Why not, I mean I barely use my VH100 now that I have my Road King... Being a Paul Gilbert fanboy & loving the idea of a combo @ my feet as a monitor to push a cabinet I completely WANTED that combo for years! And I just got that 5150 III 50 Watt from Loop!

                              I would love a VC50, no joke. I looked but they're elusive. ****************ing go for it, and congrats if you do
