FBV II shortboard - add new external switch for the looper

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have a Spider V 60 and FBV II shortboard.   I want to use the looper but playing live, the switch is too risky given it’s position at the back of the board - it is difficult to control and runs the risk of pressing a different switch accidentally.

 

So I have been looking at adding a new external switch to control it.  The basic idea was to drill a hole in the back of the bed all for a a female guitar jack socket connected to the existing switch with a footswitch plugged into the socket.

 

When I have tried this, the switch starts the loop but about 3 seconds later, erases it.  I am certain I have it soldered to the correct points on the base of the switch so could it be a different type of external footswitch is needed?

 

Anyone tried anything like this or have any ideas on how it could work?

 

Thanks

 

Pete
