I'm looking for recommendations for a good, durable Dual Momentary Footswitch, please. I mainly use them to control different FX parameters or switch between operating Modes on my Boss MFX & Looper.
The only pieces of Boss gear that have regularly failed on me have been the footswitches, both the FS-5L Latch FS, and the FS-5U Unlatch (Momentary) FS. In fairness, I don't think Boss really makes them - I've seen the same product sold as a generic FS under the name Bespeco or something similar - but nonetheless, they give out after normal, not even heavy use. Most recently, one of them started randomly flipping my GT-10 between Play Mode and Tuner/Bypass Mode a while back. Fortunately, I discovered this while sitting at home, not during a performance.
The Boss footswitches aren't terribly expensive, and they haven't all failed on me, but this is probably the fourth one that's developed the exact same problem. I know there are plenty of Dual Footswitches out there for Channel & Reverb switching on Amps, but they're generally Latch/Toggle style switches, and the Boss DSP favors Momentary Switches for the GT-10 & RC-50; just to be perverse, the GT-3 requires the FS-5L. Inexpensive as they are, their failure rate has been consistent enough that I'd really like to try something else. FWIW, I'm good to my gear: everything lives in a case or heavy-duty travel bag when it's not in active use, I keep everything clean, dry and properly powered, so it's not dirt, moisture or any of those likely issues. To be honest, I haven't wanted to even try Boss' FS-6 Dual Footswitch, because I suspect one side or the other will fail, if it's built with the same kind of switch as the others.
So, favorite footswitches, anyone? What do you like?
