    Does anyone happen to know what kind of momentary switches Boss/Roland uses for their multi-effects pedals? Normally open or normally closed?

    I don't have the unit in front of me atm for testing (won't until next week), but if anyone happens to know or has done any repair work in the past, it would be much appreciated.

  2. Surely it'll be one that is normally open.

    That way, it's normally open, so the unit is off, then when you put your foot on it, that's the switch closed, and the unit on?
