DRX Attenuator - Optional Type "B" Foot Switch
Optional Type "B" Foot Switch
The type "B" foot switch allows for switching between DRX attenuator's Rhythm and Boost levels, while simultaneously switching channels on amplifiers equipped with the channel switching feature. One channel can be set for clean tones with the DRX attenuator set for minimum attenuation. The other channel can be "cranked up" and the DRX attenuator's other setting can be adjusted for an appropriate volume level.
The type "B" foot switch is designed to work with channel switching amplifiers that use a 1/4" mono plug/jack for the switching feature, based on an Open/Closed contact for switching channels. A toggle switch is provided to change the switching polarity from normally open to normally closed. If your amp has a 1/4" stereo plug/jack for the switching feature, then a modified type "B" foot switch box is required.
The type "B" foot switch can be also used as a foot switch for the attenuator, without using the amplifier channel switching feature.
Notes: Before using the type "B" foot switch with your amplifier with the channel switching feature, ensure the amplifier uses an Open/Closed contact to perform the channel switching function.
