i want to build a channel footswitch for my rockerverb, i don't care about the reverb.

i have seen this a few times:



i am assuming this is correct. however, all i have are 3pdt switches and n dpdt switches around.

what do i have to do to adapt this to one of the switches i have?

Just ignore the last 'column' on the 3PDT switch and wire the rest like you see on the diagram.

Keep in mind that since it's a 3x3 square instead of a 2x3 rectangle, it is possible (totally have not done it myself, don't even ask) to wire the switch "sideways" by rotating it 90 degrees from the diagram. Most 3PDT that I've used have the lugs horizontal (i.e., switch matches diagram when the lugs are horizontal) but I swear I remember a few with vertical lugs. Checking with a multimeter is the easiest way to make sure.

Ha! Yes. Exactly. You can use any two 'columns' from that view as a 2PDT switch wired as shown in the first post.

A multimeter set to check continuity should beep when you touch the middle lug to the top lug (in one switch position) and from the middle lug to the bottom lug (in the other switch position) for all three columns.

you'll need to look at the orange schematic to see how they wired the switching. The ampeg is probably just a simply ground to activate.
