I plugged it into my Fender Frontman and my Peavey Envoy, it works with both, and makes no popping sound when I switch it on an off. The sides are plastic but the body is 4mm thick aluminum, it feels robust enough to take the weight of the leg often. The underside has two pads made of a dense and pretty hard foam that adheres well to the ground, and seems like it won't chip away easily.
The switch itself is the standard (like in Dunlop pedals) chromed steel thing with strong body and bolt/nut assembly. I opened the box and saw the soldering is neat and full, the wires are not too thin, the rubber is less strong than in good guitar cables but seems durable enough for its job.
I couldn't scratch the paint with my fingernails, and the plug sits firmly in the amps' input jack. The whole thing is tough and well made, but what I like most is the silent operation: it doesn't pop at all when turned on or off, and that's what matters most with a footswitch. Some days ago I went to listen to a rehearsal with professional musicians, the guitarist was well equipped but one switch in his pedalboard popped, that's annoying and it disrupts the music a bit. The FS-1 doesn't pop.
Do you believe this rating to be inaccurate or unacceptable for some reason?
I needed a simple Footswitch for my Marshall Valvestate 65. There are many very expensive original Marshall Footswitchs but what do you need? Just one thing to switch between your two channels. I don't need a new box with the name Marshall on it. This one is cheap and does what it has to do. It switches between to channels. OK the used material is not metal like the Marshall footswitchs. It is plastic, but it doesn't look cheap. The switching is a bit too loud but you can turn your amp a bit louder! It has a very sturdy box so it's stage proof. The only thing that's the best is the short cable.
