When switching from clean to overdrive using the footswitch with my B-52 AT-100 head, there is a short pause or delay before the overdrive kicks in.

Does anyone know why this is and if there's any way to correct it?

I know that some expensive amps (Marshalls) have the same problem. I figured it was because the clean channel is using the tubes differently than the overdrive channel, so the tubes have to momentarily adjust when the overdrive is kicked.

UPDATE:

I found out it's not a delay, but rather the overdrive kicks in when I release my foot from the switch, rather then when I initially kick it. Does ANYONE know how to fix this?

just get used to the way you have to switch it, click it faster
EDIT: though i've never came across a high end amp that did that.
Now officially has too much gear to list

PM me if you want to know about my recording setup

Some switches engage on the release rather than the press, but I'm assuming that you have the same footswitch as I have, and mine doesn't do that....

I have the AT-212, which is the same amp, just in a 2x12 combo..

Is your footswitch the B-52 model with "gain""channel""reverb""effect"?
