Does anyone know if this foot switch will work with a Galaxie? I'd like to have one with a LED on it. I saw some youtube videos on how to install an LED on an existing footswitch. But I thought it would just be easier to buy one, if it will work. I've seen some foot switches that are universal, but they need a 9 volt battery to provide power for the light. I hate running batteries, so it would be better (for me) to receive power from the amp.

I had the same issue with a couple of amps. My Laney L50H and my Remedy. The amps didn't send any voltage down the cable to light up the pedal when I turned it on. I ended up doing the 9 volt battery mod on two different foot switches. It was EASY to do and it works perfect. I have used the same battery for over 15 months and it is still going strong, and that is at least 50 live shows. I wouldn't worry about having to change the battery for one little LED because you won't do it more than once a year
Right before I got my Remedy, just for fun, I ordered the parts and built a footswitch. I called it the LOUD Pedal. You step on it and the Remedy gets louder! It just turns the EQ bypass on or off.
Update: I bought a LED foot switch FSGEN1BL by payne-labs (out of El Paso). I've had it for a month now and it works well. The light comes on when on channel 2 (like the amp). Also, it's slightly smaller than the Z foot switch, so there's a little more room on the pedal board.

GuitarZ: So, I cranked up the privacy protection on my browsers, facebook, etc. I have to say I miss the music ads and such. I really don't need ads for watches and other random stuff. Maybe the internet knowing me isn't such a bad thing.

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!
