i bought my peavey windsor used and the foot switch was lost. without it im unable to switch from clean to distorted without using a boss distortion pedal. i decided i want to buy the foot switch that came with the windsor, to see if i can get a better sound. the head unit confuses me because there is no channel selector on the face of the head, only a boost button. looking at the foot switch, im also confused on exactly what it does. its two button, one says CHANNEL/LOOP, and the other says BOOST. is this going to let me get a distorted sound without using my boss distortion pedal? i havent bought the foot switch yet because i dont want it if my amp doesnt have distortion built into it. this may be a dumb question but im fairly dumb when it comes to amplification.

thanks to anyone who takes the time to try and help me
