    Foot switch options

    Post by Schevek21 on Fri Jun 03, 2016 7:06 pm

    Hi guys, I just bought the TM 36 combo.  It didn't come with any foot switch pedals and I need one to switch channels.  I love the crunch and lead channels this amp has and want to get rid of my distortion pedals.  What is my best option? I like the GM pedal but but it's too pricey especially since it's comes with so many options only available with the GM amp.  So what would be my next best choice? Thanks!

    Buy the cheapest you can get your hands on. I used to use a Thomann Harley Benton FS2. This is a twin footswitch and cost about £10, there are others knocking around at about the same price. As long as they are sturdy enough and have a decent switch in them they will do. I rewired it to suit according to H&K spec. Itr's a piece of cake if you can solder simple wiring.
