channel not switching to distortion from footswitch

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I have a spider IV 75 using a fbv mkII footswitch. Whenever I change the channel to a distortion channel from clean, the channel switches to the distortion channel but the sound does not. It will still sound clean and not distorted? Does anyone know of an easy fix? I hope my hardware is not broken. I bought it used.

Are you using an FBV Mk11 Express?  The A B C and D switches change the amp to the currently selected bank's patches.  I suspect you don't have the tone patches set up in the banks correctly.

If the foot switch switches between 2 separate amp channels, set one channel with the gain turned UP! Set the 2d. channel Clean, not near as much [preamp] gain/volume  UPSers.com

Check the cable connection in the rear of the FBV II. Mine did the same when it first arrived until I checked. I thought it was all the way in, but It is a very firm solid fit, so needs a good shove, plus the outer plastic sometimes slides back and forth making it seem the the adaptor is further in than it actually is.

Good luck.
