Remote Switch and Footswitch connector: Same thing?


On some amps the back panel has a connector for a footswitch and on some amps the back panel has a connector for a remote switch. Are these the same thing and the different brands are just calling them something different?

Example:

The Peavey Bandit 112 has a connector on the back panel labeled as Remote Switch. Is this the connector for a footswitch? Is footswitch and remote switch synonymous when talking about amps?

Thank you.

In most cases yes, unless you have an amp that has two separate plugs labelled 'remote switch' and 'foot switch' then they would be different. Also unless you are getting into midi switches most foot switches will work with other amps - standard 1 or 2 button foot switch.
