Will this work??

I have an old Peavey amp (circa mid 70's) that needs to have a 4-button footswitch connected to control the amp stages, reverb on/off and tremelo. I know the one that the store gave me is not intended to be used with this particular amp (the button labeling is all wrong), but it works. I need to replace it because I messed up the jack when trying to sauder one of the wires. Does anyone know if this will work?



I'm assuming it will since the one I was using worked fine, but if anyone has any experience with these and would caution me against buying it, please let me know. thanks

It seems that the end that plugs into the amp itself makes or breaks it (trying to find a footswitch that worked for a Triple XXX was a one shot deal)... the best thing to do would be to email or call Peavey and ask them what would work.

Switches are switches ... there is no deep majick involved here, as long as the connections and type of cable are appropriate, it shouldn't matter too much.

Why not repair the one you already have? Labels can be changed ...

If all you need is to solder on a new jack, why not try that (or pay someone else to).

...and as I said, Peavey can best guide you as to which switch will have the appropriate cable and pin connection.

yeah i guess i just assumed paying for someone to fix it might end up being more expensive, but maybe not. thanks
