Digitech FS 3X

1053

3-Function Foot Switch

Digitech offers a wide range of effect pedals, which shine through many new ideas and are anything but "one trick ponies". It would be great, of course, if the many possibilities of the all-rounder could be used synonymously without spine warping between two songs (or even just during one). This is exactly what the FS3X pedal offers - with which you can comfortably switch models and other functions of the JamMan loop, the Jimi Hendrix Experience pedal and the new EX7 expression pedal.

  • For JamMan Looper, Jimi Hendrix Experience pedal and EX7 expression pedal
  • Modes: Up and Down
  • Stable metal casing
  • Passive operation
  • Incl. 3 m TRS stereo cable connection (no additional power supply required)
available since September 2005

Perfect companion for the Trio+ band Creator
Emansell 21.02.2018
This foot switch board is something more than a simple set of switches: despite its default use allows hands free use of the Trio+, the product for which I've bought the FS 3X in bundle, the footswitch module can be configured in order to select alternative functions, based on the player taste.
This unit is highly suggested for the comfortable activation of the Trio+ looper: sometimes it is really difficult to me stay on the beat while pressing the integrated footswitches on the Trio+ unit and the possibility to expand the interaction with it without releasing the hands off the guitar is simply priceless.
The unit is built in a solid metal case allowing also the heavy feet guys to interact without any hassle or fear of damaging the device. At the end, an high reliability is expected for this item.
The price is absolutely adequate to the product, also considering its construction quality, and I definitely suggest its purchase.
A not negligible plus, for the customer of Digitech, is related to the wide compatibility of this unit with other Digitech products.
A last word in favour of Thomann: packaging was accurate and protective for the items and shipping to Italy has been fast and reliable.

FS 3X with DOD Rubberneck Delay
jeredog 24.02.2020
Solid build, firm switches. I use this as an external control foot switch with DOD Rubberneck Delay, connected via the provided TRS-cable.

There's 3 switches for 3 controls;

1. Left switch engages the rubbernecking feature of the delay (doubles or halves the delay repeats + control for the speed of the change). With this external foot switch there's no delay when engaging the rubbernecking effect, as opposed to without the FS 3X.

2. The middle switch acts as an on/off switch for the modulation of the delay repeats. This is handy as it lets you "save" the modulation settings and just switch the modulation on and off. Without the foot switch modulation is turned off by setting the controls counterclockwise

3. The right switch controls the delay regeneration feature of the Rubberneck and acts as a tap tempo, similarly as in the delay pedal itself.

Only downside I've come to find is that the FS 3X doesn't register multiple switch presses. In the Rubberneck you can use both the regen & rubbernecking simultaneously when pressing down on both switches, something that doesn't work with FS 3X.


Overall I'd say this is a great choice for people looking to have some extra control on the DOD Rubberneck.

Great Little Pedal
BillDL 20.01.2022
This is a neat small size pedal that makes my older Digitech Trio Band Creator Pedal much easier to use hands free, especially after updating the firmware of the Trio pedal. It was cheaper from Thomann than any of the UK retailers. The buttons feel very positive, it is in a nice sturdy casing, and the stereo jack to jack cable is of reasonable quality and plenty long. As usual it was delivered well packaged and quite quickly by Thomann.

Beats bending down
Anonymous 08.01.2017
This is a nice little addition to a whole range of Digitech pedals. Unfortunately Digitech themselves aren't too clear on what it can and can't be used on but my specific use for it was for the Whammy DT which when connected allows me to scroll between the different settings. Pressing the 'mode' switch allows me to switch between the Whammy and Detune functions each side of the pedal while the 'up' and 'down' switch obviously lets me scroll between each setting within that mode/function.

One small thing that annoys me is the length of the cable that comes with it. Like most other pedals used with this footswitch you will most likely need to be near the actual pedal to see the setting you want so why they felt the need to include a 3m cable eludes me. I bought a much shorter TRS cable to make it more pedalboard friendly.

While it's a nice addition I can't help but be annoyed at Digitech for not just using a button instead of a dial to navigate through the different settings on the pedal in the first place. Then again when you have people like me willing to fork out an extra ¤26 for the footswitch I guess you can see why.....
