hi i am getting a cube 60 and wanted to make a footswitch for it, i am not sure about the switch i need to use, i want it so i can push the switch and the effects comes on then push it again and the effect goes off. what sort of switch do i need to use? Latching Unlatching or momentary?
also how do i wire it up to a 1/4 '' mono input jack?

a plain on/off would work better.

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.

I have a cube 60, and you definately need a momentary switch. If you use a normal momentary switch it will work ok, but the effects will come on when u release the pedal after stepping on it. The effect will then stay on until you press the pedal and THEN release it again. This results in a small delay in the effects coming on and off. If you use a push-to-break momentary footswitch though it will work perfectly and the effects will come on and off on pressing the switch and then pressing it again. The trouble is i can't find momentary push-to-break FOOTswitches, so had to use a normal smaller push-to-break switch. These are less heavy duty but i find it still works perfectly. Here's what you need

Would you have to add any other components?
