    Great addition to my home studio

    Very happy with this footswitch. I'm using a Line 6 Spider IV 15 watt amp, miked with an SM57, to record both lush 80s strat and Zeppelin meets VanHalen plexi tone. But, what a pain to stop and punch the channel you want, in the middle of a song, with your finger: I wanted a footswitch almost immediately.

    I'd looked at the Line 6 short board, but really just wanted a footswitch to change between the clean and crunch channel. I don't use the next two channels anyway so this footswitch was what I was looking for: uncomplicated. Plug it in and go.

    It seems to be built really well and they give you an ungodly amount of cable to plug into the amp, reminds me of an Ethernet computer cable from work. My guess is they figure people like me use these tiny amps for recording, a la Jimmy Page, and might want to place the amp in another room, or an isolation box, cranked at max volume to get the most out of microphone response. At any rate, I just used the included twist ties to secure what length of cable I don't need. The cable does kink where it wants to, it's not rounded and predictably pliable like a guitar cable. If you've handled an Ethernet cable, from your computer to your internet router, it's just like that but black: you know what it's like.

    Switching is flawless and crisp as you'd want it to be, much like an MXR stomp box button. You can cycle through all channels without issue. You cannot skip a channel, you'd need the short board if you want to do that. You can overwrite the channel presets on these Spider IVs so I could program two more custom setups, like another clean and another dirty and just go one direction with this footswitch. In my case, less is more and I love it.

    Playing guitars is a 50 hobbie with me. Mostly self taught. Like to play with friends and learn new things. Sometimes play for friends at their private parties. Will not accept money for it. Just like to play guitar and enjoy the party.

    Line 6 FBV2 switch

    The switch works great. It also came with its own new cord. I had to buy a cord for another Line Six amp that I bought used that didn't come with a cord. The cord alone cost me almost as much as the new switch with a cord cost delivered to my door by Sweetwater. The shipping was fast from Sweetwater too. The only thing I don't like about the LIne 6 switches is the cords won't lay flat and like other foot switch cords will. They use a computer type cord with lots of wires in them. The cords have a memory and want to coil back up. You can work the kinks out but as soon as you roll it up an put it away you will have the same problem the next time you get it out.

    simplicity

    Easy to use and set up. Comes with a nice long cable. I took off 1/2 a star because it is unfortable to press with bare feet. I understand in aperformance you probably wouldn't be barefoot. But practicing at home without shoes is something I do.
