Mine started to have problems after about a month. One of the 1/4 inch jacks became very loose and some of the switches were flaky. Instead of ordering another one, I thought I would break it apart and see if there was something I could fix. Indeed there was. The input jack was loose because it wasn't soldered in! In fact most every component was loose. The original soldering was very clean, but hardly any was applied to most of the components. The fix was very easy. I soldered all connections of every component. I screwed everything back together and now it works like a champ. Even if you're not very good with the solder iron, this is a pretty simple fix.The switches are good quality and haven't had any problems since the soldering. Everything responds great now. I would give this a higher score if it wasn't for the bad solder job.

worst pedal ever

This is the single least reliable, least sturdy, biggest piece of crap pedal on the market. I had two of them. BOTH broke. I know several other people's that broke as well....Read complete review

This is the single least reliable, least sturdy, biggest piece of crap pedal on the market. I had two of them. BOTH broke. I know several other people's that broke as well. I doubt anyone will get to read this because im pretty sure this website and crate don't want you to know how much it sucks.

      Comments about Crate CFS3 3-Button Footswitch:

      I am just adding my thoughts here because I like the footswitch just fine, but my connecting cable for it has "disappeared" twice (kids???) and it is an odd thing to replace. You need a TRS plug and a 1/4 inch plug on one end (two cords) and the TRS has to split to two 1/4 inch on the other end, and the other 1/4 inch cord switches the reverb. It seems to be unnecessarily difficult to get a replacement without piecing one together. And why it "grew legs" to begin with is anybody's guess? If you're stuck with using an ordinary 1/4 inch cord, then you can only switch one of the distotion channels on and off, although that is not exactly a disaster, just underperforming. As far as the negative reviews, Crate perhaps does have a reputation for good designs with cheap components, but I have had pretty good results with my solid state amp, and I have played out with it quite a bit without any problems at all.

        Comments about Crate CFS3 3-Button Footswitch:

        The ability to switch from clean to bluesy or fully metal crunch is awsome. My old pedal stopped working a while back and I found this to be a great price for a great pedal. Only had it a few weeks but it's been going like champ.

        Comments about Crate CFS3 3-Button Footswitch:

        I bought a crate gt85d several months ago, and I got tired of getting up to change to the settings (clean/OD,tube/ss, fx/none).I figured Crate pedal for a Crate amp.This cured all of that. It came with the cords to connect it to the amp. The actual product is much more durable than then picture leads you to believe. The one I got was made of metal.

        I've had this foot switch for a year now. I've played only 4 shows, babied it around, and I've had to replace it twice already. I guess you have to keep buying them every time they break. At least they're easy on the wallet. You get what you pay for. The quality isn't very good, but hey, this is Crate we're talking about, not Fender or Marshall!

        The footswitch works fine now. I haven't had any problems with it within the month Iv'e owned it, but I am scared about it just failing one day based on the other reviews.

        I love the footswitch but it breaks easily

        Comments about Crate CFS3 3-Button Footswitch:

        I got one of these switches with my crate amp but 2 of the buttons broke far too easily. Well one was stomped but the other merely clicked on and wont click off. So I'm replacing it, but if you take care of it it should last a long time.

        I have had to replace two of these switches within the last year and a half due to the soldering failing in the switch.
