    Someone... it may have been me... accidentally plugged his footswitch into the attenuator bypass speaker out on his Galaxy and killed half of the switch...

    Can someone help me identify this switch and point me to someone who sells a replacement? I had ordered a 6 lug DPDT Dunlop switch hoping it was the same size on the lugs... but it is too narrow.

    On this one the lugs measure 3/8" x 9/16".

    Thanks!

    Is a DPDT switch, similar as the one MXR uses.

    Right... I know that much, I'm just looking for a direct replacement, or one that will actually fit the contacts on the circuit board.

    I'd contact Toneking to see what Mark suggests. I have to run out, I will check my bin and see if I have one similar in size when I get back. If I do I will mail it to you. Send me a PM just in case I forget.

    Yeah, if you have something that would fit let me know and I would certainly send you some money for it.

    I may have found something on ebay, but with shipping it ends up being a pretty expensive part, and I'm not 100% sure it's the same thing.

    Contact Mark - he may be able to send you the part.

    Yeah, you know I bought the amp used online and the ad didn't note that the foot switch wasn't with it... The seller wasn't having any luck (or perhaps trying too hard) in getting a replacement. I got in touch with Mark and he just ended up sending me one. No charge.

    Good dude. Great amp.

    Yeah, I wasn't having any luck any of those places.

    Think I found on ebay. $15 w/ shipping seems a bit steep for two of them, but oh well.

    I found one on ebay, bought a pair... didn't fix my problem... turns out it was the LED, not the switch. Replaced that... problem solved.
