Boss FS-6 Dual Footswitch
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 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.

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 ...

So it's not a product has avoided ...

Boss FS-6 Dual Footswitch
"I use the footswitch for about a year, only at home or with a friend while making the battery (no use in groups, scne, repeated srieuse ,...) I used my drive amp roland cube 30, a switch used to switch the channel clear channel modlisation, the other using the knob to enable or disable effects (flanger ,...)

Do I like this product, the cot clumsy, it's solid!

Do I like least:
1) the requirement to have a 9v battery for power supply of the LED, no possibility to connect a power supply collection outdoor
2) the obligation to unplug the cable between the amp and the footswitch at the latter, otherwise the battery will discharge to the pedals and no longer works
3 little time between when you press the pedal or the channel change is (can be of the amp)

"I made this purchase APRS buying my amp, I wanted to control the distance, I have not tried similar product

- Just looking for a person driving an amp, this item is sturdy and exudes quality. But for those who want to use it live or repeated, the small latency in the channel change is of the same Gnant.

- With the exprience, I think I would do this choice, all fawn for group play, the roland 30 is a bit limited

Boss FS-6 Dual Footswitch
I drive the dr-880 with the pedals, finally ... these two pedals: THE FIRST functions for start / stop and one for forward or backward in my programs.
PDAL solid and practical.
Just a BMOL with the use of start / stop function of dr 880: by pressing start, the rhythm pattern to Get You Started beginners as is desirable, according STOP against the rhythm pattern s 'net shall adopt and will not until the end. Live for stopping the song must be aimed just trs (not easy) or prvoir a reason for termination "white" to be properly sr stop the song.
For those who find it CHRE, I say that its strong market makes it even better than rummaging on the net, one finds an affordable price. Think of the dollar is weak right now plutt.

Boss FS-6 Dual Footswitch
uen week was that I use and I am super happy! I have only one amp and the footswitch ELKA stereo walk. a super pedal a bit expensive (65) but its good with some reduc does!
Unlike other tests that I footswitch, it makes no noise when changing channels with the stereo jack in the middle there is the possibility in my case) to change the channel and type of distortion ( if more than one) LEDs on the foot are very practical when used on stage or in the pnombre.
One defect was noted but it is minimal, there must be uen 9 volt battery for the alliment LED (small red stuff for dummies! Lol)
In the manufacture conserne nothing to say in a box and alluvial potarts big enough

In summary this is a good pedal with a good qualitprix I acquired this pedal without Siter

Boss FS-6 Dual Footswitch
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 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 ...

Not much to say on this Controller except that it is better to go his way.
Indeed, his biggest default in that it would need a 9V battery ... Everything for what? Just feed the small red LED power and two LEDs on each pedals. And yes, no battery, has not work.
But personal, I bought one to drive a Lexicon JamMan. So I had two pedals Fleeting. As a dj I possde FS-5U (fugitive only), I told myself it would be cool to the one inside the other (FS Roland / Boss have a rail and another mle ct on their female to be able to fix them). But here, the FS-5U o does not need batteries because it is only fleetingly, the FS-5L (contact vrouillage) and therefore, the FS-6 also, he, in need to display the state of the contact (on / off) thanks the LED. This is normal you say, and you are right. The problem is that these two pedals (FS-5L and FS-6) can be powered by a 9V battery and have no outlet AC / DC to connect a external power supply.
It seems futile you?? Then go up into two or three of this type in a pedal-board manufactured home and which you just managed to fix Tiez all your pedals and the cables that connect them. You will understand what I mean ...
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.
Luckily, I did not pay the mine (a gift store with whom I work) ...
- "Wow another h!! Y s'plaint for something that am ^ m not pay!"
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.
Three jacks share the rear face: A central stereo for both pedals and pedals for each mono jack, leaving the choice of cable users. It's nice.
Then, two switches for each pedals can select the mode Vrouillage or fugitive, and the polarity of each pedals.
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!

Anyway ...
