Tough and silent

Total rating

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.

Very Good

I use this with my Amp and its great for changing between the drive and clean channels on stage its an absolute bargain and i think every guitarist should have one for there amp.

I use this with an old 1960s Fender Amp, to switch on the tremolo. It works fine, and does not look cheap. Obviously, something chrome and 60s-looking would be prettier, but this does not look ugly

Robust litte channel changer which I use to switch channels on my Fender Frontman guitar amp.
No LED on the pedal but there's one on the amp anyway.
Does it's job unobtrusively and reliably.
Cheap and good alternative to the original Fender footswitch.

Cheap Footswitch

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.

Bought to use with Kemper.

I bought this unit along with the FS-2 to pair together on a pedal board for live use with my Kemper Profiling Amp.

I use this to switch to the tuner and back with 0 faults. The metal housing is very sturdy and strong. It happily takes my foot beatings when Im on stage pedal dancing between sections of our set.

I've also gone to the length to re-spray the housing matte black so that when the two pedals are side by side they look like one single unit.

For the price, cannot complain at all. Does the job perfectly.

In future maybe it'll be nice if there can be a 3 button version?
