El Dangerouso Posted April 28, 2006 Report Share Posted April 28, 2006 Normally, I can pretty much figure these things out, but I'm not making it happen this time. I've got a Shiva. Two button footswitch, no reverb. Here's how they do the footswitch; they take a three button footswitch and cap the reverb part. So, I figure I'll get a two button footswitch to save some space on the old pedalboard. Got one, the channel select will work, but not the boost. I pulled them open. Please someone, tell me what to do. Here is what I can tell by myself. Bogner switch: Channel switch on one termianl has a common wire with the boost switch and this is connected to sleeve on the stereo jack. The other terminal on the switch is connected to a diode (looks like a 12V zener) and a 33 ohm +- 1% resistor. The diode and resistor are connected to the two seperate leads on an LED. Also on the diode LED lead is the tip lead for the stereo jack. On the other terminal of the boost switch are two resistors connected to the two LED leads. One is 41 ohm +- 1% and the other is 100 ohm +- 1%. The 100 ohm also has the sleeve lead from the jack wired to it. New Switch: Channel switch has a 410 ohm +- 1% resistor on an LED lead and a lead to tip on the stereo jack on one terminal. On the other terminal is simply the LED lead and a lead to sleeve on the jack. On the boost is essentially the same setup, but with the lead on the resistor terminal going to sleeve. The LEDs are much smaller on this footswitch. What do I need to do to get this bad boy to work? Do I only need to add a diode/resistor combo, or can I not get there from here?
