My no name one that worked with no delay in switching channels just died, and the stock peavey one is asstastic (huge delay in switching channels) and I was wondering what the cheapest (or just any really) footswitch with no channel delay would be for the valveking?

Someone mentioned on the boss one, but I'm not 100% on that.

You could probably just go for this, it's cheap and it should do the job well. have you ever considered that maybe the delay in channel switching is caused by your amp and not your footswitch?


As I already stated in my *first* post I had a no name one that worked perfectly.

Thank you for reading though, and do you have any proof that the one in your link will work with the valveking?

Sometimes it's better not to post...

Any stereo two button footswitch will work


No, it will not. As I have one right here. Huge delay.

Read my friend, read.

Are you sure there's a delay, it could be so that it switches the channel after you let go of the button, not when you press it (with the stock VK footswitch). And the other footswitch could have changed right when you stepped on it.

Just theorizin'.

More then likely thats what was happening.

Also not all footswitches work with this amp. I know Marshalls and one other i tried cant remember the name of it didnt work. Just an fyi to the threadstarter..

BOSS FS-6. It's used with every amp I've owned or tried, including my Peavey Valveking.

P.S No Delay either.

Thanks, I'll be getting this.

As for the "when you release" answer, no.

When you step on the channel switch, the other one slowly fads in and there is a pretty big delay. Sorry. Not it.

That really sounds weird, I'd bet on the footswitch being faulty. Or just badly designed and low quality. Or something.

Still under warranty?

Nope, got it used. I heard it's a small mod to fix it but I'm as handy with a soldering iron as I am with a jackhammer.

So how are you with a jackhammer?

Meh, how much could you lose? I can't imagine it being that hard (if it's a simple fix), or maybe get a friend to do it. Worth a shot IMO.

(of course I'm assuming you have/one of your friends has/you can borrow somewhere else a soldering iron and some solder)

Oddly enough, I have a soldering iron, I just lost the guide to it, or I'd give it a go.

I'm sure there are soldering faqs on UG (Building and Customising forum maybe?), or you can Google one. I believe it's something like "plug iron to wall, let it heat, then use it to melt solder". That simple.
