    Guitar Amp Footswitch

    The Blackstar ID:260TVP is a programmable amp and those type of amps usually use a special footswitch that serves multiple functions from controlling modulations to switching channels and even the display of a tuner. These footswitches really depend on how the amp was built and are more complex than the footswitch made in this instructable. To the best of my knowledge, I don't think there's a way to build a simple footswitch for this application without schematics or without opening one from the manufacturer. I would suggest you search for a how-to guide specific to your amp or just buy one from the manufacturer.

    HiThanks! Sorry for the late reply... Indeed, the battery is used to power up the LEDs. Usually, footswitches don't have batteries instead, they use the current from the amp to power the LEDs. I wanted to make sure this footswitch could work with plenty of amps and also, you never know how the manufacturer designed the amp circuit to power up the LEDs. So having this in mind, I decided to provide the footswitch with its own power source for simplicity.
