GK Boost Pedal Switch
Just a quick question... Can the Boost pedal switch that comes with the GK MB500 be used with a GK 400RBII?
I think so. Hope so. Looking for a FS for my MBF 500.
The MB500 pedal contains a switch and an LED which comes on when the Boost feature is engaged. Not sure how the older RB Boost switch pedal is implemented. Perhaps someone who has one can take a look and describe.
I do know the 400RB/800RB switch was a simple latching switch with no LED. I don't have MB500 schematics to know the circuit used for the footswitch or if it will work with the simple scheme of the 400RB/800RB. Sorry :(
I never really missed the RB foot-switch until I got one with the MB500 - very handy.
I have emailed GK tech support. Will post the answer when I hear from them.
Just received a reply from GK's tech support:
"the MB500 footswitch has an LED and that LED interrupts the direct signal. Therefore when you close the switch it doesn't close nor open because the LED has no power. A simple on and off switch will work for the 400RB."
Bottom line is that the boost pedal switch that comes with the MB500 will not work with the 400RB(II). However, a boost pedal switch for the 400RB(II) is easy to make.
