Boss FS-5U Footswitch with Non-Latching Type and With An LED Indicator

Roland/BOSS offers two types of sturdy metal footswitches for different applications. The FS-5U (silver) is a momentary "unlatch"-type footswitch, and the FS-5L (black) is a latch-type footswitch with an LED to indicate status. Both footswitches can be connected using ordinary guitar cables. Many keyboard players will use it as a sustain pedal, but since most effects pedals these days can be used more effectively when used in conjunction with an additional switch.

FS-5U External FS Control Polarity Setting:

  • If using an FS-5U connected to the RC-1 make sure to set the POLARITY switch direction toward the cable jack for proper FS functionality.
  • If set improperly (away from cable jack), upon pressing FS to STOP, the LOOPER will STOP but the LOOP will be ERASED!
  • The POLARITY will also be important when controlling the RC-1 from CTL/CONTROL OUTPUT of a BOSS EFFECTS SWITCHER like the ES-5, ES-8, and MS-3 or a MULTI EFFECT like the GT-1, GT-100, GT-1000, etc.
