Hey there,

When I play clean, I like to use some chorus, but when I play distortion I don't want it.

I use a chorus pedal for the chorus, but the clean and distortion are the channels on my amp which i can switch using a pedal that came with my amp. So I need to tap my foot on both pedals to get the result I want. Is there a way that I can turn the chorus on/off when switching channels, so with just tapping my foot once.

thank you

i don't think there is, at least not by just having the pedal straight into the amp. if the amp footswitch is easy enough you could put them next to each other and step on it sideways to hit both.

either that or put in for some tap dance lessons

Very versatile and quality sound. It should treat you well

There are complex ways to do it involving midi controllers, true bypass loops, and relay switches(assuming your amp supports external switching, or you can make a custom switch).

But honestly, for one pedal... Not worth it.

Put them close enough together so you can hit both at the same time. If you were capable you could do some modding so you can switch the chorus with the footswitch. That would require a DPDT channel footswitch and some wiring between that and the chorus. Easier just to stick them close enough so you can hit both at the same time.
Myself, I do it with a rack and MIDI and stuff but for one pedal? That would be serious overkill.

Arrange the pedals so your foot clicks both at the same time (one button switch under your toe, and the other under midsole or heel - and practice switching.

One of my amps (Egnater Armageddon) has a feature where you can assign the effects loop individually to each channel. With this feature you can leave the pedal on all the time, and when you switch to that channel where the effects loop is on, you only need one click

some amps have two loops for the different channels, but if you don't, as cath says the simplest solution is probably to put them close together or something like that.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

You could build this:



That's just a 3PDT footswitch and four phono sockets. You'd leave the chorus on and when you hit the footswitch it would bypass it and change the amp channel. You may have to move the amp channel control lines to the bottom two instead of the top two depending on which state it has to be in for the channel you want.

You could make the channel control lines just a cable coming directly out of the box with a phono plug on the end or add a phono socket to the box for that too - your choice.
