Some of you might have read my other thread about my friend and his MG.....and he thinks it have "Tube tone" now. Muppet!!!

Anyway, since he got it second hand, he has no footswitch. So, once again i was asked to come here and see what the dealio would be in making a footswitch for it?

Anyone have pointers on how to build one?
And what buttons does an origional mg footswitch have?

Cheers to the people who dont have cynical posts about the MG.

Thanx.

Bleh, imo its a waste of materials :/
But the 50 DFX (the one with the effects) had like the effect one then the drive one.
Or had it 3 i dont really remember but it def. had drive and effects, i can check it on friday if noone else has answered.

Which MG is it? If it's the same as the 100dfx I can take mine apart and draw you up a schematic.

I made one for my brother's crate amp. In his case it was just if the tip is grounded then distortion is turned off and if the sleeve is grounded then the effects are turned off. So basically when I found that I just figured out a way to have LEDs glow when they're not grounded and vice versa. Just experimenting.

Excuse me, but methinks that picture is wrong. I've made a few footswitches (for a Vox Valvetronics, so it could be different for Marshalls) but I'd connect the black wire to the sleeve, the white one to the tip and the red one to the ring.

Yeah you're right, sorry. I measured it right, but drew it wrong. Switch the white and the black.
Thanks styx.
