No more knob fuss!

By LesDudis

from New Jersey

Comments about Boss FS-5U Nonlatching Footswitch:

I love the Boss FS-5U unlatching footswitch! I own two Boss DD-5 delay pedals and I use the FS-5U on one of them to use the external tap tempo feature. While the DD-6 has a built-in tap tempo, the DD-5 also allows you to set the pace of your delay signal! It's a really cool feature and I love not having to bend down to turn delay time knobs anymore. I can't wait to use an FS-5U on the upcoming Boss RC-2 loop station to set the tempo of my loops. This is quite a useful tool.

Nice Pedal, But Pricey & Sharp Edges

By Baxter

from Baltimore, MD

Comments about Boss FS-5U Nonlatching Footswitch:

The polarity switching makes this the most versatile footswitch around. However, it would have been great if it could also function as a latching footswitch. Instead you have to purchase a FS-5L to do that. All of these FS footswitches interconnect, which is very cool. However, the cords cannot be bussed so you will have a separate cord for each switch. Also the aluminum edges are sharp and will make quick work of your gig bag if you travel with it.

Boss FS-5U

By CDOG

from bolinas, CA

Comments about Boss FS-5U Nonlatching Footswitch:

I wish I had twenty of these things, they are really handy. For your keyboards,effects,amp switching, drum machines, recording start/stop & punch in, etc.With polarity switch, I haven't found a device yet that takes a footswitch that the Boss FS-5U couldn't activate.It is solid, quite and out of five I have never killed one yet.

Many uses!

By Bluesbird54

from Guilford, CT

Comments about Boss FS-5U Nonlatching Footswitch:

The Boss FS-5U Footswitch is a very nice item. It is sturdy and well built. The pedal is very responsive. The one problem is that there is no indicator light that says if it is on or off. This can be a problem if you are having difficulty hearing your guitar while playing live. I bought it for a Cube 60 amp but have found it quite useful with my Jazz Chorus and as a keyboard pedal. I have had it for well over 2 years and it still looks and works like I just took it out of the box. A very nice footswitch and well worth the money.

Sturdy Boss Footswitch!!

By Mark Wolf

from Jacksonville, FL

Comments about Boss FS-5U Nonlatching Footswitch:

Another great product by Boss, You can't go wrong. I use mine for Tap Tempo on my Alesis SR18 Drum Machine and also to start and stop recording on my Tascom DP-02. Also as a two channel switch for my guitar amp. I like the rubber base peddals better than the steel base ones for comfort. Great addition to a versatle home studio and band practice.

      It has a VERY fast response rate and works wonderful for my Boss RC-3 Loop pedal! It's a lot smaller than it looks but works great and doesn't even need a power supply!

      Stays put thanks the rubber footing. Feels well made. Ability to chain two together is pretty sweet (or just buy the bigger brother to start with).

      Purchased for Alesis D5. Strong construction; looks like it will take a beating. Works well to advance selections. I wish I could find one to advance back and forth

          I use this as my starting switch for my Boss DB-90 metronome. Once I have the rhythm track memory cued up I can grab my guitar and then use the footswitch to start the rhythm track while I am already strumming.

            Comments about Boss FS-5U Nonlatching Footswitch:

            Used 2 of these as external footswitch for an RC-3 Looper Pedal. Worked exactly as the manual said these would.

            One thing I really like is that the 2 can be latched together as one unit saving space.
