Picked one of these up as it is what Roland specifies to use with the Roland AC60 acoustic amp that I recently purchased. So its expensive for a foot switch, but not overly so. So I get it home and it turns out that I need a special Y cable to use the thing. They specify using a special Boss cable which L&M doesn't carry. Online it'll cost about $60 delivered. After a little research I find that a Hosa Cable STP201 will do the exact same thing for $7.12 on Amazon. So after a week I can finally use this thing. The actual unit does what it is supposed to, however I feel that it has some major design flaws. The first issue is that there is no on/off switch and no input for an AC adapter, meaning you can only power off a 9V battery and that you have to unplug it every time you finish using it. My second issue is the indicator lights on each of the two pedals that indicate that the effect is active, do not stay lit. In my case the pedal activates chorus and delay and while strumming an acoustic it is not easy to hear if the delay is on or off. Would have been nice if those lights were illuminated while the effect was active. Again, this thing does what I need it to do, but for the price it should do it a lot better.

Bought this Pedal when I got a used Peavey Valveking that the seller did not have the Peavey footswitch. Had it set up in minutes, does what a footswitch is supposed to do. Left side changes channels, Right side enables the "Boost" circuit for solo's Metal body is more robust than Peavey plastic switch and more Pedalboard friendly size. Works as advertised.

I loved this pedal. I used it to control my drum machine for starts Stops and Fills. and setting tempos. this is the perfect pedal for what I needed. I have only had it for 2 and a bit weeks, and my Right pedal has stopped working. And there is a slight delay in the right. It may just be that I got the rare lemon pedal. I will be bringing it back to the store. I highly recommend Boss products. I think I was just one of the unlucky ones to get a the rare bad ones.

Needed a footswitch for my peavey valveking 2x12 combo and this did the job perfect. Right happy about it, and cause you can play with the polarity and the latch it can be used with almost any other amp needing a 2 button switch. You'll need to buy a cable (stereo cable in my case) which is fine, can be as long as you want!

I originaly got this for my RC-2 looper. BOSS is horible for making you have to pay stuff that should come with their products. Power supplies for example. At least this item can be used with other stuff. With the ability to set polarity and go latched or unlatched I can use this puppy on a varity of things made by Alesis, Digitech and other items that allow external pedals.

It adds a lot of functionality to the great ME-70 in my effects run, especially useful in the memory bank navigation which was really hard to navigate without these extra pedals. Super well built, they've been stood on for over a year now and respond super quick and without a single hiccup, even after the cat peed on it, just a bit of cleaning and it worked perfectly. However rather expensive as it shouldn't be necessary to buy a $45 accessory to make your ME-70 work the way it should have from the start.
