Footswitch....For a Footswitch??

    Little dilemma...

    My pedal setup is as follows:
    Instrument into Donner Tuner pedal,
    Into an MXR M80 DI+ Preamp,
    Into a Boss LMB-3 Limiter/Enhancer, to the amp.

    I'd like to keep everything together in a homemade setup on top of the cab, but I still need to control the distortion portion of the DI.

    My question is, can I wire an on/off footswitch into the MXR to control JUST the distortion, without turning on/off the preamp as well?

    Thanks in advance for your help, lads.

    I know someone has to have done something like this. Just a single button control switch with a long cable. Nice and neat.
  3. It should be possible to modify the m80 to use a remote foot switch to activate the distortion, see a local repair tech.
