I use the Live Wire Solutions LWS21 Universal Latching Footswitch with my Gallien-Krueger Backline 250 Bass Head. It works great! The switch has a metal housing, a metal switch and has a rubber base (probably to keep the switch from sliding around or from marking up the floor). My amp keeps the setting from the footswitch even after powering down the amp and bringing it back up. Great product..

Works Great!

Comments about Livewire LWS21 Universal Latching Footswitch:

I use this for my Fender Frontman 25R and it works great for switching parts in song. It's all metal, so it's pretty durable. You can drop, stomp on it, bang it around, and it works fine. Highly recommended.

Half the price of the Fender switch

By Bruce

Comments about Livewire LWS21 Universal Latching Footswitch:

Works Great on my BluesJr. Very Sturdy. The cord is about 8 ft. long. This switch is half the price of the Fender switch; and, in looking at the reviews of the Fender switch, it may be twice as sturdy. Good grief, this is an off/on switch, why would anyone pay twice as much for a Fender switch.

    Comments about Livewire LWS21 Universal Latching Footswitch:

    I bought this footswitch to go with my Rogue amp. When I hooked it up it introduced a lot of hiss. I felt it was too much. Not sure if it's a cheap cable or what. I returned it. Otherwise, it's a simple footswitch that works. It did change my amp from clean to distorted channel, so that part worked. It was just too noisy for my taste. I hate to write a bad review, but I'm just being honest.

        I bought this footswitch to use with the Fender Mustang II amp. Hooked it up and works great. Footswitch is made well and seems like it will hold up for many stomps to come.

        Comments about Livewire LWS21 Universal Latching Footswitch:

        Check if it works on your amplifier call MF first and ask it didn't work on mine NOT UNIVERSAL!
        It says UNiversal I have a RMI 140 Amplifier and it doesn't work on my amplifier a minus
        The product it self works I went to some friends and tried it out on severel diff amps
        It just doesn't work on a RMI 140 so it isn't really Universal

        Still a good product!
        Strong Footswitch
        It isn't Universal

        Comments about Livewire LWS21 Universal Latching Footswitch:

        Overall, I don't think you can do bettter for the money spent.
        I don't use the Vibrato circuit on my amp very often, but wanted a footswitch to activate it when I did.Seeing this one and it's *bargain* price, I thought "why not have a go". I made a good choice!While it may not look as nice as the Fender version, it's made just as good and should offermany years of reliable service.

          Comments about Livewire LWS21 Universal Latching Footswitch:

          I was disapointed that the cord length was not disclosed in the description. I never expected a 6 ft. cord. I at least thought it would be 12 ft.
          The switch works Great but I cannot use it because the cord is Too short. I will have to buy a extension cable or another switch with a longer cord.

              I was looking for a simple one touch on/off switch for the effects on my board so I ordered this switch. It will turn the effects on and off but you have to step on the switch 2 times for either. Doesn't anybody make a simple one click on/off switch?
