Maestro PSFS-2 Footswitch Design?

Postby pmkipp » 18 Jun 2017, 19:44

Anyone ever tried to build one of these to work with the Maestro PS-1A Phaser? Would love to figure this out.

So, I did figure this out. But it is a pain to build, mostly because of the 6 wire connector required and having to build the plug from scratch. It works fine with my PS-1A - the Blue (Slow) switch has to be on.

Update - there was actually a busted switch in my build. Replaced it, now it works perfectly - used with all the onboard rockers in OFF position. Little pop when turned on or off, so need to figure that out...
