Footswitches

Postby raboof » Sun Feb 08, 2015 2:11 pm

On stage you don't want to have to use flimsy buttons, but stand on a solid footswitch.

What do you guys recommend for that? I've heard good things about the Behringer FCB-1010 but it seems like rather overkill. Any other recommendations?

Is this for use with a computer? If so, a USB pedal may be cheaper and integrate better with software. I've been using the very rugged and reliable Scythe 3-pedal unit (http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/2513949263 ... =82&chn=ps) for several years. And one pedal is my piano sustain, so it gets constantly pressed for hours. Very gig-worthy. I've even dropped it on cement floors and taken chips out of the plastic casing, and it still works.

Can't say the same about 2 behringer products I bought, both having malfunctioned. I won't gig with that brand.
