Fender mustang foot switch compatibility

Recommended Posts

Are  the Fender Mustang  2 and 4  button foot switches  or expression pedal compatible with the Stomp?

What kind of connector do they use?  They might be but only partially. If they use a TRS connector, I think the Helix considers those to be an expression pedal. Not sure how the Helix would deal with a Foot switch connected via TRS. I believe those foot switches are also latching and not momentary contact. That might be a problem too.

@godfather_77 Good questions! I have brand new sets of matching Fender 2btn, 4btn and Fender Exp-I Expression Pedals for use with my Fender Mustang v.2 IV and v2 III amps. .I have not used the switches and expression pedals much with the Mustang Amps. Subsequently I got a Helix Floor, and the Mustang Amps became my Helix's powered speakers, so the 2btn and 4btn fender footswitch units and EXP -1 got not use. Still a bit curious if any of them will work as is with the Helix Floor. Now I also have an HX Stomp, and the question remains if either the 2 or 4 btn fsw units or the exp pedal would work as is? Or if they would need to be rewired.
