Is there a way to change the modes on a GFS pedal if the selector switch broke off and I lost it?

That may very well be the most obscure and unanswerable question I've ever read. Detail, man, detail. Elucidate.

probably not without replacing the selector switch, it'd be pretty easy to do. but if the stick on the selector switch is broken then there maybe be no mechanical way to select a different path in it's innards.

Well on my GFS Brownie the amp selector switch broke off entirely and I want to switch it's modes but IDK how. Do you need a picture?

Just open it up, not somewhere how the cables are connected to it, and substitute it with another one of the same type.
That should cost no more than $2 and half an hour of work if you're not expert.

that is the only real option you have. the switch is mechanical so if the mechanism is broken there is no way to way move the parts inside of it.

That's a very simple fix, but no way for it to function short of replacing it.

So where could I get a new one?

probably radio shack. you'll need to take off the back and confirm the part.

could be a DPDT or a SPDT, dunno. just take out the part and go up to radio shack with it and search through their switches drawer.

you're gonna need a solder pencil too and some solder.

Take plenty of photos before you disassemble it so you know where everything goes come time to put everything back together.
