HUGE but solid.
05.03.2017
the FS-1 is a channel switch pedal, wired to work on Orange amps (and very likely on lots of other brands too). it looks cool and very Orangey (yep, the operation LED is actually orange, and i love that). nothing shabby and cheap as Fender and Peavey footswitches, to name just a couple.
it requires a standard instrument cable (with 1/4' mono jacks), that means that NO, you have to buy it too, and YES, it has virtually no damageable parts (of course except the switch itself, that feels as solid and straightforward as a soviet tank), and doesn't force you to use a 5 metres cable if you need to put it less than 2 metres away from the amp...
the only real issue is that it's HUGE, and stupidly so. I guess it could have been just as solid and cool in 50% of its volume...

Works as advertised
urist, 10.04.2019
I bought this switch to pair with Crush Bass 50. Mostly for playing at home and occasional studio usage.
FS-1 requires instrumental cable, which I consider a plus because you can easily replace it if it gets broken for whatever reason. I paired it with cheapest instrumental cable I could find and it works with zero problems.
As some other owners noted light is quite dim, but visible well enough under most conditions.
Build quality is very good, this thing weights a ton and feels like you could use it to smash rocks and it wouldn't break. Underside is lined with decent no-slip material which helps if you are playing on slippery surface. Switch itself never locked on me, and while it requires some force to push it, but isn't uncomfortable to use even without shoes.
Design wise it looks like a brick with giant orange logo on top, it isn't exactly something you would want to put as a centerpiece of your studio or anything, but it fits well enough with rest of the Orange lineup.
All in all, solid switch, maybe lacking in features but build quality is excellent and if you care about branding Orange logo might just be worth paying a little extra.

Strong decent footswitch
Mark1168, 07.05.2015
I bought this footswitch to complement the Orange CR120 amp head that I ordered.
Essentially this is for changing the amp channels only, you can get another switch that does that and switches on the reverb as well, but this one is the single channel switch.
It is certainly strong enough for gigging, I have used it many times without problem.
You will need a guitar cable to run it into the amp, just get the cheapest moulded plug cable that there is at the correct length you need, I quite like that system better than the all in one footswitch/cable.
The only issue I have found is that in a brightly lit rehearsal room you cannot really see if the light is lit or not.

simple and effective!
RedSun, 27.01.2014
We got this pedal for our Orange Rocker 30 so we can switch between the natural and the dirty channel.

It's a durable metal box, fairly big for what it does but simple and effective.
It still works after 5 years!

Solid

This is the only footswitch I've ever had that people ask about after gigs, due to the typically funky Orange graphics!It's a sensible size. It's reasonably weighty so it won't wander round the stage and the white finish makes it easy to see.

Orange footswitch

This is basically a channel switching button. It is quite expensive for what it is but you get what you pay for. It is good build quality and rugged (it has withstood a drunken dancer fall on it without leaving a scratch!)
