    I need help!

    I bought this amp sans footswitch and I need one for it. I can't find a Hiwatt switch anywhere so I'm looking for something compatible.

    What will work?

    It probably uses a latching footswitch. Antique Electronic Supply has them with LEDs for around $14. If it requires a 2 button, they are around $20.

    I bought a genuine Hiwatt switch off Ebay a few years ago, but the only thing different about it from the above is the Hiwatt logo.

    I just did a little checking around, and it is indeed a latching footswitch setup. It seems that there are Hi Gains with reverb and without. I think you'll need at least one dual footswitch to control both if you have reverb.

    Here is the part number for the dual switch at AES...... [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][SIZE=-1]P-H471-LED[/SIZE][/FONT]

    I couldn't figure out how to link directly from the site, but the main site is: http://www.tubesandmore.com/

    I am pretty sure those will work. Not sure on how many you're gonna need to control everything, but the latching type is what you want.....
