Does what it's supposed to do
Benjamin I. 24.05.2016
Plugged it into my Peavey Envoy, works as the Peavey manual says it should: one switch turns the volume boost on and off, the other selects the distorted or clean channel, without a popping sound, it's perfectly silent electronically.

However the hollow housing acts as a small resonant box, so the mechanical sound of the steel switches is enhanced. I find it a bit annoying, so I cut sponges in pieces, and stuffed them inside the housing to dampen the clicking sound, and it works.

When I opened it, I saw clean and full soldering; plus, the copper wires are not too thin. There was a bit of aluminum dust but I brushed it away. The housing is rather thick metal, and the side panels are tough plastic. The whole thing is rugged against shocks and the pressure of the player's weight.

The cable is okay but its rubber is not stiff and thick as a good guitar cable like my Klotz, so I give it only 4 stars. The jack locks firmly onto the amp's rear panel. The other end of the cable is crimped on the stompbox's panel, the arrangement looks quite solid, you can't budge it if you pull it.

The bottom has two rubber pads that don't wear out easily, and grip pretty well. An anti-scratch paint rounds up the thing. I don't travel with it but the footswitch looks like it should last long even if you do.

Bargain Double Footswitch
Wardle 29.08.2018
I bought this to go with a new Boss Katana 50. With the V2 firmware I wanted a 2 button pedal to access the 4 available banks. To be honest, when I added this to my cart I was a little dubious about whether it would be compatible with the Katana but at ¤13 I thought "why not?".

Tested this with the amp last night and it works flawlessly. The build quality (for ¤13!!) is very good and it seems robust. The lead is long, though is perhaps a little thinner than a high quality cable but no cause for concern.

The switches seem to engage without any issues and are similar to switches that cost multiples of this price.

Overall this is an absolute bargain for anyone who just needs a simple 2 button switcher - it costs just 20% of the price of the Boss double switch!

Good Quality and Cheaper
BillDL 21.08.2020
Works on Boss Katana 50 MkII for simple channel and bank switching, and with other amps I have that take a single stereo jack and need "latching" switches. If you don't need LEDs to remember whether the button is on or off, then this pedal is VERY much cheaper than big brand names and even some lesser known ones. Good sturdy body and good positive feel on switches. If you don't know what footswitch you need for your amp you need to ask an expert at Thomann. Generally ones with no LEDs will work on nearly all amps that use 2-button switching, but ones with LEDs don't always work on as many different amps without modification. I hate stiff cables that kink or very thick and heavy ones. This one is nice and rubbery and just the right thickness. SO much cheaper for the same thing than elsewhere.
