    I recently was able to get my hands on a Zinky-built Supro Tremolectric. It did not have the factory footswitch with it. I'd like to have a footswitch built so that I can integrate it onto my pedalboard. It takes essentially two separate footswitches to operate currently. The typical two button Fender style footswitch with the stereo 1/4" cable to operate the channel switching and reverb PLUS a single Fender style footswitch with the mono 1/4" cable to operate the tremolo.

    What I'd like to have is all three integrated into a single enclosure with LED's to show engagement of the switch. I'm assuming this is a custom build? Who would you recommend?

    One more bump just because I'm stubborn.

    Available retail/ready made for me at my local music shop:

    https://www.long-mcquade.com/1772/Guitars/Parts/Apex_Electronics/Three_Button_Footswitch.htm

    This is the MFGR's website (Yorkville and Long & McQuade are Canadian, both established by the same family in the 1950's)

    These are *very* good quality. I use one of their 2-button versions with my Marshall, you could drive a tank over it and it would survive. Comes complete with extremely high quality 1/4" cables (one mono, one TRS stereo for the 3-button version). Should be exactly what you need.

    Cheers

    Thank you so much. That's exactly what I'm after.
