Hello everyone, this is my first time posting on this forum!

I am a big fan of my Kustom Amp (30W w/ Reverb and Tremelo, 1970's) I am and I am about to get a new speaker for it (debating between a Weber Legacy 12 or a Supro BD12, leaning towards the Supro but I can't decide with 75W or 95W ugh...) but I wanted to get a foot switch for it since it's always had the option to have one connected with just your standard audio jack.

I've seen Kustom foot switches that have click switches but I just found one that looks like it had some type of expression pedal built into it. And because the Tremolo and the Reverb on the amp are controlled by tone knobs it made me wonder if this would allow more versatility through the pedal. But idk if I would I need some type of 4-Pin to instrument cable converter? I was wondering if anybody had any idea what would be the best option? Or if anyone is able to give me some new information about my amp.

And sadly I can't post pictures or links so let me know if you have any questions.

Hello and welcome.
The type of pedal you discribed is likley for a Kustom 250 series amp an will not work with your model if I had to take a educated guess!

If all you need is a 2 button foot switch then I would go to Antique electronics supply and order up there H-471 foot switch.

The Kustom 1L came out in the fall of 1974 and would use the standard two button push on/ push off click type switch. The amp should have the 1/4" stereo jack on the back panel. The other footswitch pedal you mentioned might be for either the K200A series amps or the K250 series amps that Steven mentioned.
