Author Topic: Adding On/Off Footswitch Out Jack to arbiter treble booster?  (Read 115 times)

Hi everyone. I'm planning on building an arbiter treble booster amp top clone ala the original and had a question as to how I would go about adding an external footswitch jack (to work with a normal roland nipple switch or etc.) to turn the unit on and off. My only concessions to the original schematic are that I will be using a 3pdt switch and true bypassing the unit along with an LED. Can anyone tell me how I would go about doing this and which jack I would need to use? Thanks a lot for any help folks and have a great memorial day!

Are you planning to remotely switch the effect on and off? If you are hoping specifically to have the effect right next to the amp, probably the best way would be to use a relay for bypass. Something like the Madbean Softie would let you use any momentary switch as a remote. You would only need a mono jack.
