Hello people. I am still in the process of getting money for my JCM 900, I just have to wait until my parents will give me goddamn permission to sell my MG and ME-20 online until I would be able to get the head. Anyway, now to the question.

Are there any better footswitches for a Marshall JCM 900?

Here is the one made for it

http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Marshall-P802-Dual-Footswitch?sku=482942

It has bad reviews so I am wondering which ones might be useable and better. If there are none, then I can live with that footswitch.

judging from your sig, pleaaase dont tell me you plan to run the metal zone into the JCM900 for distortion? pretty plox?

i would just get that one, but im sure most standard two button ones would work though, so if you see a cheaper/better one, you could get it and chances are itll work with the marshall

The footswitch is fine, I had the mg one and this, and I'll tell you the 900 one is actually better, the buttons are a lot smoother.

Bad reviews for it?
hmm....
it seems fine to me, if you want for cheaper than you can get a normal standard two button switch if you want.

and nutinpwnsgibson is right, DO NOT run an MT-2 into a nice amp like this.

I don't plan to use the metal zone any more.

Ugh.. I can't wait any longer.

I wish my parents weren't so concerned about selling online, I can't do it independently right now. Ever since my parents caught me watching porn on the computer they haven't trusted me on the internet.

Shouldn't the 900 come with a footswitch?

any stereo (two button) footswitch will work fine, as far as i know. and how much are you selling the MG for? invite some friends over and smash it with baseball bats and stuff...

Well obviously, the 900 isn't made anymore

Usually when I buy an amp I assume it comes with the footswitch, unless it's really cheap I wouldn't even bother if it didn't. But as long as you don't jump on that switch, I don't see it dying on you, most footswitches last pretty long.

I am selling it for $500, everything is in mint condition and I got it only 2 months ago, it never left my house. That way I can get a little more money.

that is quite a ridiculous price i hope you realize, but i guess it would be OK for a starting price.
