I need a project for Welding class + My new VK212 didn't come with a FS, so Imma build one. I'll do the housing in class, not a problem, but a few questions about the elsectronics:

I only need 2 buttons. I wanna put in an LED for each switch. do I need 2 wire in a battery source for these to work? or can they work off the amps power? dumb question...

also, if I need the battery, could I put in an on/off switch, so the battery isn't always on?(as if in an effect pedal, when the input cable is in)
-Epiphone SG400
-Epiphone ES-339
-Dean Ekoa acoustic
-Peavey Valveking 212
-Fulltone Full-Drive 2

Mebbe u don't need a battery.
Mebbe u can wire a LED in parallel with each switch, if it doesn't draw 2 much current.
But f it draws too much current, it will ngage teh relay.
F tahts teh case, u can wire the LEDs in series with each switch.
Then teh indication will be in reverse, but u will still no.

Go 2 page 10 of this pdf. N teh lower right hand corner is the connector for teh footswitch.
