    When I bought the amp, probably 8-9 months ago they didn't have the switch in the store. The factory one does lots of stuff besides switch channels that I didn't care about plus costs north of 200 bucks I think. Then some people say it only works on the GM series, some say both

    At any rate I tried some generic stuff a couple months ago, no good. Yesterday I got a Boss FS 2. It kind of worked, changed between clean and OD, but no crunch, and then only if I held the pedal down

    Took a closer look, a little slide button on the side says momentary and latch . Put it to latch and it stays. But still no crunch channel

    Mentioned it on a HK Facebook page and found out I needed a TSR cord, not a regular one. I didn't even know that animal existed So I went to GC this morning and found one. Success !!! It would have been nice if my regular store would have told me that. Oh, needed a power supply too .

    But at any rate it all works now

    Wish I’d known you need that bit of you information. I’ve been using that Boss switch for years. I could have told you a long time ago. The H&K switch is too expensive and I already had the FS-2 to use with my TTE...

    Appreciate it but I hadn't been really pushing it too much. I was just out and about the other day and popped in the store. They suggested this pedal. It just took a little trial and error to get it right
