Ok so I was thinking of getting a VK with its footswitch and everything but then I started reading in various post and threads here that the VK footswitch was a very low quality product and that it had a delay when changing channels.
I also read that the Boss FS-6 footswitch worked perfectly with the VK so I said ok I'll buy one of those but then I saw this pic



And now I have no idea how to set it up with the amp...
Help please

You'll want to set the mode for both switches as "FS-5L Latching". Then run a stereo (important) cord from the A&B plug into the footswitch jack on the amp. Don't know about the polarity switches though.
AMP:
5150 combo
GSP1101 + Tech 21 PE60

GUITARS:
ESP LTD M-255 w/ SD Full Shred
Kramer Vanguard w/ JE-1000 active preamp
Douglas WF-150sn w/ GFS "Hot Lead" set

EFFECTS:
Bos SD-1 (boost)
AMT DT-2

Lol. Just flip the polarity switches until it works. There is only 2 options.

The hotbar should be floating parallel to the principle axis at this point. Next, take a hammer, and beat yourself in the face while crying JIHAD. problem fixed.

Ok, I use this exact setup:

First, you need a stereo guitar cable or a stereo to two mono lead. If it's a stereo to stereo, you plug one end in the amp and one end in the middle jack pulg of the footswitch. If it's stereo to 2x mono then plug the stereo end in the amp and the two mono ends in the other two jack plugs of the footswitch.

Set both to FS5L Latch.

You'll then find that one channel switches, and the other one turns off the gain boost on the lead channel.

Hope that helps!

i hear this is the way to go but am curious is there is something smaller and possibly a bit less costly.
