You Pay: $50.95

The BOSS FS-6 is essentially two switches in one, combining latch and momentary switching into one unit. Sporting two heavy-duty switches housed side-by-side, the FS-6 allows each switch to be set for latch or momentary operation, depending on the individuals' playing style and setup. Individual polarity switches are also available for each pedal.

The FS-6 is equipped with a 1/4" TRS (stereo) input jack, and requires a stereo cable to function properly. This footswitch may be used with a wide variety of instruments, rhythm machines, and guitar or bass amplifers offering channel switching.

      The FS-6 pedal is a quality product from Boss. I purchased this pedal for use with the Roland VG99 guitar system,the GR 20 guitar synthesizer,and the Boss Eband JS8. Works as it should on these items. I rated the pedal as 4 stars simply due to the fact that I cannot attest to its useability on products outside Roland manufacture. Although,I feel the FS6 would probably work in any application requiring a foot switch. The plus side of the FS6 is the fact that polarity for the A & B functions can be selected independently. Also,either A or B functions can be set for momentary action or latch action. Momentary being active as long as the switch is pressed, and Latch mode being equivalent to switching a light switch on or off by pressing one time. The only minus side of the FS6 is that it requires a 9 volt battery and there is not a provision for using a 110volt/9VDC power supply.

      I bought before I researched. This footswitch is great for start-stop on drum machines and each switch can be either latched or unlatched. Unless I didn't read correctly the switches won't operate without a 9-volt battery and the only way to power off the switch circuitry is to un-plug the 1/4" plugs which is a pain for a permanent setup.

                Comments about Boss FS-6 - Dual Latch and Momentary Footswitch Pedal:

                I bought two of these to use in conjunction with the MFC-101 for the looper control on my AxeFxII. They work well for that (or any other switched function you might need).

                But, they're not perfect if you're installing them on a pedalboard. There's no aux power in if you wanted to run them off your 'board's 9v supply, and no switch to turn them off. You have to unplug them, or say goodbye to your 9v batteries as the pedals stay powered up.

                So, I added on/off switches to them. Not the perfect solution, but I don't have any power on my 'board (The MFC and the CCs don't require a local power supply). If I had 9v onboard, I'd have installed jacks to power them that way.

                For standard loose use, where you'd typically unplug them when you're done, they're great. But, who does that anymore?

                    I'm using it as page turner for my iPad, especially with ForScore, the music-reading app. It works excellently for that, and it's rugged enough to stand up to constant use.

                      I use this with my Epiphone firefly 30 amp. I would buy it again. You do need to pull the cord out of the pedal when you are finished with it. Thats what turn it off. Uses a 9 volt battery would be better with 110 adapter. All in All its a great pedal for the money.

                                        I bought this to turn on/off the preamp modeling and reverb on my Boss ME-70. Typical Boss quality. Built like a tank and works great. The only thing I'd like to see is a power supply input so I wouldn't have to depend on a battery. (But I quickly remedied that with a 1 SPOT battery clip converter.)

                                          It does all the things it said it did. It is built well, and seems like it could be dropped onto the floor without any serious harm.

                                            I'm extremely excited that there is no noise at all when switching between modes. Small convenient size. Nice look. I would recommend it to my friends.

                                            This product works great. I brought it for the BOSS-DR-880 Drum Machine and I had two functions instead of one. It takes a 9 Volt Battery and it works great. No On/Off switch the power is disabled when you disconnect it from the TRS cable.

                                              It works great. The versatility of switching between latched and momentary makes this the universal footswitch standard. I use it for switching amp channels. Works great in a Roland cube or Alesis drum machine. Just don't forget the cables since it doesn't have any with it.
