Yamaha G50-210 amp footswitch and user manual

Unread post by Stringmusic1983 » Wed Feb 27, 2019 3:58 am

Hi everyone, thank you in advance for your help ! I recently purchased a Yamaha G50-210 amp that came with a footswitch that is original to a PG1 preamp (per my research). I am considering modifying it to work with this amp but I am making some assumptions to make that happen. I don't know exactly what the original footswitch configuration/design is. To keep from being excessively wordy, does anyone have a schematic of the original, a description or pictures that I can work from ? Also, a user manual ? I have a schematic of the amp itself. Thanks again !

Welcome to the forum and the string section :D

I believe your amp is made for 4 footswitch controls:
Preset Volume
Tremolo
Reverb
Distortion

The pedal from the PG-1 has 3 switches and 3 led's wired for the PG-1

You can use this pedal for 3 functions, but I think you can sell it since it's quite rare.

Al you really need is 4 single latch switches with a jack for each.

Best Regards

I don't have a user manual at the moment, fortunately, this amp is easy to figure out even without the manual.

Thank you so much ! I really don't want to modify the PG-1 footswitch since it is a rare item and had rather it be used for it's originally designed purpose. If I can't find an original soon, I will try to find a four button aftermarket footswitch. All of the information is very helpful ! I am looking forward to "dialing" in my new find and I appreciate your time and effort to help make that happen !
