I recently bought a Crate G130C XL used, but it did not come with a footswitch. I tried looking at the manual, but it’s only 5 pages and did not seem to specify which type I need. From what I can gather, I think I need a two-button footswitch where one button switches the channels back and forth and the other switches the reverb on/off. Also, I guess I can get a pedal for the chorus switch? Any help or links would be appreciated as I don’t want to buy the wrong ones or damage the amp.
If memory serves me correctly, the footswitch for channel switching on this amp is a temporary contact switch as opposed to the more common single pole/ double throw footswitch used in other amplifiers. The channel switching in this amp is actually done by transistor circuitry inside the amp and is activated by an temporary change in the circuits relationship to the amplifiers ground caused by stepping on the footswitch.
