Hey everyone!
Yes, yes I am a noob! And, I'm sure that this answer will be so very obvious.. But, I was wondering what the pedal (or foot switch) is called that lets you alternate from the clean channel to the distortion channel (instead of having to push the button on the actual amp). Much appreciated!

Fixed.

OT: Distortion pedals doesn't change the channels on the amp, they add distortion before the sound makes it to the amp.

We know exactly what you mean. It's called a footswitch!!!

I think I get what he means, the effect is built into his amp, and he just wants a footswitch, that will turn on the effect in his amp, only he can do it with his foot instead of bending over and pushing the button on the amp itself.

It's called a footswitch. Most of them also let you engage the boost on the gain channel, and some of them even let you switch the effects loop on or off.
Ceci n'est pas une signature.

I understand what he means now. He doesn't want a peal that adds in distortion to the current channel, he wants a pedal that switches his amp from it's clean channel to IT'S clean distortion (Instead of having to hit the button on the amp).

Thread starter, I'm actually not sure where you would get something like that. If you've got skill with circuits you could probably make one yourself.

To change from the clean to distortion channels on your amp, you'll want to find the foot switch to it. Foot switches are usually built for the specific amp, so you'll have to find one that works for your amp specifically.

A distortion pedal is going to distort your sound before it hits the amp, preferably while it is on the clean channel, but it will not change the channel on the amp itself. You'll only want that if your amp doesn't have it's own distortion channel, or if you don't like the way that distortion channel sounds, i.e bad tone or not enough gain.

Hope that clears it up.

Pretty much as said several times. It's called a foot switch. Go to a search engine and enter your amps model and add footswitch at the end and you can usually find one designed for your amp. Make sure to shop around however as they can be strangely expensive for what they are.
