    Product Description

    Boss FS-5U Unlatched Footswitch

    BOSS offers two types of footswitches to choose from depending on your application. The FS-5U is a momentary type footswitch and the FS-5L is a latch-type footswitch.

    These footswitches can be used as sustain pedals for most keyboards and can also trigger various functions on effects pedals and other machines. Also compatible with:

    • Boss Katana 100 MKII Guitar Amp Head
    • Boss Katana 50 MKII Guitar Amp Combo
    • Boss RC-500 Loop Station
    • Boss SY-1 Guitar Synthesiser Pedal
    • Boss GT-1000CORE Guitar Effects Processor Pedal

    Please check whether you need a latching or momentary switch. See the related items below for the Latching version.

    Simple and effective. I don't have much guitar gear, but have enjoyed tinkering with the Boss Micro BR now and then. The BR-800 is a whole new thing and to use the loop record I need a foot switch pedal. Really didn't know what to expect but the FS-5U just works to switch Play or Record on and off. Simples! Now I have to practice with it.

    Not the most appropriate accessory for my needs. No light to indicate on / off BUT works very well as it is intended to do.
