Boss FS-6 Dual FootswitchPublished on 09/04/08 at 16:52
I have had this pedal for three years. What I like about it is you can use it on just about any device that has 1/4" jacks that you need a on/off pedal, or a momentary pedal (ie tap tempo). What I don't like is the same thing I don't like on most of the boss pedals of this kind, only battery power. Whats the deal? I am not to found of having to carry batteries around as a necessity and don't want to have throw away batteries all the time. I know rechargeables exist, but those are a hassle too. A power plug is just more reliable, flat out. I have tried similar things but none that let you select between momentary and latch. (momentary being the tap tempo kinda thing and latch......

(momentary being the tap tempo kinda thing and latch being the toggle, on/off thing). These go for around $50, and I recommend them because they are sturdy, small, and light. I always seem to have a need for it in my rig somewhere. Yes, I would buy it again.

Not much to say on this Controller if not it is better to go his way.
Indeed, his biggest default like the fact that it need a 9V battery ... Everything for what? Simply feed the little red LED power and two LEDs each pedals. And yes, no battery, no running.
Or, Me, I've bought a controlling a Lexicon JamMan. So it fallais me two pedals permanent contact. As I possde already a FS-5U (fugitive only), I say it would be cool to be able to max out into each other (Roland / Boss FS have mle rail and other female ct on their order fix them). But here, the o FS-5U needs no battery because it is THAT fugitive, the FS-5L (vrouillage contact) and therefore, the FS-6 also, he, requirement to......

But here, the o FS-5U needs no battery because it is THAT fugitive, the FS-5L (vrouillage contact) and therefore, the FS-6 also, he, requirement to display the state of the contact (On / Off) thanks to its LED. This is normal you might say, and you are right. The problem is that these two pedals (FS-5L and FS-6) can be THAT Food once by a 9V battery and have no outlet AC / DC to connect a external power supply.
It seems futile ??? So get in two or three of these in a pedal-board manufactured home and on which you tiez arrang precisely to fix all your pedals and the cables that connect them. You will understand what I mean ...
Clearly, if you use a pedal like me-board which interest is precisely not to have dplacer / replace your pedals one each during your installation of sc nes, you soon realize that it is particularly nervant having to play malgrs screwdriver while changing a battery on a pedal as these.
Furthermore, this battery is automatically dconnecte dbranche when the jack. Now I have my pedal-board manufactured in such Manire no cable (jack or power supply) is visible. Only switches and knobs of my pedals afleurent the playing surface. So if jeveux logout what satan conomiser cable for the battery, I must first unscrew the cap supprieur My pedal-board ... Very practical amount.
In short, I prvoyais to buy two to drive my JamMan, but eventually, I will surely dbarasser me to replace it with four pedals fugitives individual contacts of a brand and concurente g nrique (like Matrix or Proel), because yes, we must also keep in mind that the price of such type controllers is boufonnerie unnamed as compared to what they contain.
Amazing to pay as much for so little.
Luckily, I did not pay the mine (gift shop with which I work) ...
- "Wow !!! another h Y s'plaint for something that am ^ m not pay !!!"
Yeah, and then a does not prevent me from having a consumer notice;-)

Well, if not, do only this down, you still m ^ m as well reconnatre ct construction, it is a bunker.
Three jacks share the rear panel: A central stereo for both pedals and a mono for each pedal, leaving the choice of cable the user. It is fun.
Then, two switches for each pedals allow select the Vrouillage or fugitive mode, and the polarity of each pedal.
At this level, say nothing, it's damn good.

But damn, they would still m ^ m have thought that the number of potential users of the Controller have the same kind of editing m ^ me !!!

Anyway ...

So it's simple it is solid and it does its job.

I use to drive my Alesis SR18.
START / STOP switch. A / B / FILL on the other.
I am a bassist and manages the rhythm in a duet, it's great.
I have two jacks connected to it, I have not tested input A + B

I recently built a Pedalboard.
Many complain of the 9V battery, it is true that it is strange to not place a 9V jack on this kind of device.
But for your information, there are adapter cables for connecting the connector on a 9V power supply standard, that's what I did and need to connect disconnect / etc manage the stack ...

Clearly, if like me you use a pedal-board intrt which is precisely not to have dplacer / put your pedals at each one of your implementation of sc ties, you will soon understand that it is particulirement Nervi have to play the screwdriver anyway to change a battery on pedals such as these.
In addition, this battery is automatically dconnecte when unplug the jack. But I made my pedal-board in such Manir no cable jack (or PSU) is visible. Only the switches and knobs of my pedals afleurent the playing surface, so if this jeveux dconnecter satan SAVE cable for the battery, I must first cover dvisser supprieur my pedal-board ... Very practical after all.
In short, I prvoyais to buy two to control my JamMan, but ultimately, I'm srement dbarasser and replace it with four pedals fugitives individual contacts of a competitor brand and g nrique (like Matrix or Proel), because yes, we must also keep in mind that the price of the Controller is an unnamed boufonnerie as compared to what they contain.
Incredible pay as much for so little.

Yeah, and then a m'empche does not have an opinion of consumer ;-)

Well, if not, do only get this product, you still m ^ m as well reconnatre ct building is a bunker.

At this level, say anything, it's screwed.

But damn it, they would all m ^ m have thought that number of potential users of the Controller are m ^ m such mounting me!
