Trying to build one close to original.
Any help on the exact dimensions and a photo of one would be helpful.
Thanks.

Yes, I have a 4-button footswitch, pics attached.
The diameter of the housing is 4-1/2".
The diameter the circle for all 4 buttons is 2-1/4"
Note side view, and curvature of the housing.
The housing is a heavy cast metal with flat black wrinkle finish paint. The underside of the base is a flat rubber cover.
**Sorry** A Masters Degree in Computer Science is apparently not enough for me to figure out how to insert pictures or attachments. Send me an email address and I will gladly send all the pics you want.

I think it will depend upon what model amp the footswitch is for.

The round black ones were original to the K-100/K-200 series.

The better model metal fronts often had a more elaborate switch that had lights and labels (fuzz, reverb, etc.).

What version pedal are you looking for?

Thanks Mick, I really appreciate the effort.

I may have a line on an original 4 push button footswitch for my 250 (finger's crossed).

Hi Mick, I've been looking a long while for a pic of the 4 button footswitch for my 1967 200-A4. I've been looking for an original for years now. Would appreciate the pic's. Thanks, John

Hi John -
I have not yet figured out how to upload pics to the forum. If you would like to write to me at msutliffe@comcast.net I would be happy to send you some pics. The previous post was looking for external pics only. If you need internal pics of the wiring, let me know and I'll open up the switch.
Best,
Mick
