Dual Latching Footswitch for Amps & Effects Units
All kinds of musical equipment can make use of a dual latching footswitch. The Latching version of our Skinny Little Twins dual footswitch is wired in a similar way to a Boss FS-6 on its Latching settings. The Twins, however, are much smaller, and completely passive, meaning it doesn’t need a battery or a 9v power line to work. Oh yes.
Be sure to use a stereo patch cable with the Twins, or only the left footswitch will work. Contact Us if you need help sourcing a stereo patch cable.
As an Amp Footswitch
Pretty much every amp out there uses a dual latching footswitch to change channels on the left side, and turn effects on / off with the right. Compiling an exhaustive list would take forever, so check your amp’s manual – if it mentions a dual or “standard” footswitch, you’re golden.
For Effects Units / Drum Machines
There’s all kinds of effects units and drum machines which use latching footswitches – again, listing them would take forever. If you’re unsure, get in touch and we’ll advise you further.
We’ve made the latching Skinny Little Twins as completely unkillable as the rest of our pedals, because we realise that your average gigging musician needs something that can be trod on over and over, and still ask for more. It’s what we do.

Does exactly as it says, and so very well made. I use it now with three very different amps, so I’m in the middle of trying to simply put on labels signifying channel/reverb/vibrato/fat and whether it’s light on/off!! But I’ll get there… So useful having the LEDs where so many name brand amp pedals leave it to the ears to determine whether on or off – not so good mid gig when you forget! Thank you Vein-Tap!

Yup, a true upgrade on many “official” products; well made, smart and simple and space saving. Added to my Supro Delta King 12 it has turned a clunky boost & OD channel switching system into a smooth and practical giggable solution (as am now able to hit BOTH switches at once, taking it from a clean amp, to a clean boosted amp, to a dirty amp, to a dirty boosted amp and instantly back to clean). Also, I ordered the wrong switch type…not a problem, Vein-Tap took care of that, no problem. My 2nd Vein-Tap purchase and will not be my last…trusted builder and solver of problems 🙂 thank you!

Rock solid and totally reliable. Takes up very little space on the board but still does the job perfectly. And you will never miss it in the dark! Awesome value.

Dual footswitches with two LEDs are rarely sold. I ordered from Japan but arrived in a short period of time. It is working without problems. Thanks Ben.

Great little pedal that works the Boost and Tone functions on my Roland Blues Cube Hot, doing the same job as the Boss FS-6 but for a considerably smaller sum of money. Robust, small and works perfectly.

Great little pedal – Very robust, lovely finish!

Perfect compact replacement for the enormous Marshall-style dual footswitch that came with my amp. Much more appropriate for the pedalboard.

Bought this to use with my Katana 50 and it works perfectly. Arrived quickly, looks really cool, and seems like it’ll be bombproof (not going to test that though!).
Compared to the price of a Boss footswitch, this is a no-brainer.

Gorgeous little thing!
Beautiful finished, top notch materials and rough as a rock! All of this with great customer support (Thanks Ben!) and lifetime guarantee… Do yourself a favor and get 2 🙂

I got the version with the leds for my Boss Katana 50.
It works great for switching between the two channels and two banks (in total 4 channels) that the katana 50 has.
The pedal is compact, feels very sturdy and the two buttons give a nice click when pressed.
I can recommend this pedal to everyone looking voor a dual latching pedal!

Works perfect with Boss Katana Amps and can be used with or without 9v power connected. Used without power connected of course will not light up the LED’s.
Solid built. Paintwork mostly ok although mine has a lighter patch on one side which was under painted.
One recommendation I would make would to have a rubber base or some similar non slip material rather than just a painted metal base.

This is an excellent product! I use it to control the effects on a Marshall acoustic amp. It cost a fraction of the price of the recommended switch and is built as well, if not better……. in fact scrap that, the build quality is far superior to the Marshall switch. This thing is built like a tank!
Top that off with some of the best communication that I have ever received from any company.
Keep up the good work Ben!

Just the job for Boss Katana 50 channel & bank switching.
Lovely small footprint and great value. Most excellent!

This Skinny little Twins is the second pedal I have bought from Ben. These are great little pedals which take up no space hardly on my board. They do an excellent job and the help and advice received from Ben was great. The LEDs on the Skinny Little Twins are really bright, great indicators. I would definitely recommend Vein-Tap anytime….

Bought the Skinny little thing to switch reverb/tremolo on a Fender Deluxe Reverb. It does the job, of course, but what I like is the very small imprint ideally suited to my very compact pedal board. Great !
This is the second switcher I buy from Vein-Tap, i already have a FS3X. I bought this for my Infinity looper and couldn’t be happier. These are handmade tools, extremely well built with good components and sold at very reasonable prices. Ben is also great with his feedback and communications. Very highly recommended!

I bought one of these to replace the two separate foot switches I was using to switch between lead/rhythm and clean/crunch on my Mesa Boogie Mk3. It works perfectly and has freed up a lot of space on my pedal board.
Really pleased with this!!

I was going to buy a Boss dual latching switch until I came across Vein-Tap. All I can say is how gutted would I have been if I had. This pedal does all you could want it to, runs with or without power and looks like it would survive the fires of hell – and all for half the price of the other plastic alternatives. The Dark Triad is next on my list, do yourself a favour and start collecting today.

Works perfectly and has such a small footprint! Also, Ben was extremely helpful and wired the pedal with the specific color LED’s that I requested. I would definitely purchase from vein-tap again.

Fantastic! I bought two and Ben reversed polarity on one before shipping, now THAT is service!

Great company to deal with. I had a problem with delivery which wasn’t Vein Tap’s fault. Ben updated me promptly and re posted the item. Great customer focus..oh and a wicked little pedal, very robust with a small footprint. It fitted into my pedal board a treat. Thanks Vein Tap, great service! Best wishes Mark

Ben is responding in a very quick and thorough way to your questions. The package was delivered very quick (in a few daya, from the UK to the Netherlands), but most important: the switch looks awesome and works great. Great value for money.
Fantastic!. I wanted the pedal to run alongside my Fractal Audio MFC101 to offer additional control options. I needed it to house an internal battery to run the LED’s, so Ben built a custom one for me. It turned out the polarity of the LED’s was opposite to what I expected, but that was easy to solve with the MFC101 CC settings. Works a treat! A nice solid roadworthy pedal. I also have the Momentary version of this pedal running into the MFC and that also works great!

Lovely small footprint. Nice positive switches. Ben was very helpful as I needed to swap around the action of one of the led’s. Talked me through which wire to swap to which switch position. Highly recommended. Dave.
