    My beloved Boss LS-2 is having issues :(.
    The master switch only works eratically.
    I guess it's been used too much and cries for rest.
    Where the hell can I find the replacement part ?
    Is it easy to repair ?
    While we're at it, if you have any cool mods for the pedal I'll be glad to try them. :hyper:

    No ideas where you can find this new. Maybe you could try to find a dead Boss pedal and take its switch ? Or maybe it could be replaced by any momentary switch of the same size. I think replacing the switch would be quite easy.

    I didn't managed to find the LS-2 schematics :meh:
    A cool mod would be to add the possibility of running the loops in series, but I have no idea if it is easy, or even possible in this pedal.

    EDIT : I think I'll take a closer look at the circuit soon. Maybe the // mode can be modified with a parallel/serie switch...

    I tend to find BOSS Pedals to be more "disposable" than the rest because they're a huge Pain to repair. When I buy dead pedals, you'll never see a BOSS on the list. Not worth the time or effort generally.

    Unfortunately, that's what I thought.
    I've looked for units for the same job but can't find anything that really does it all.

    Not even a loooper ? No boost, but with a volume on each loop, you could have something really similar to the LS-2, no ? With the possibility of adding a parallel/serie switch, or other custom functions.

    Looopers are close. They miss a few things though.

    Jazzy, I may have the right switch around the house from my Redhead project. Remind me over at Allan's later.
