Circuit board

EDIT: Keep in mind that's for ease of manufacture, however. The circuit could basically be described as a row of switches which trigger lights and send a control signal to the amp via the multi-pin connector. This is accomplished by a custom IC. You can build this by hand and point-to-point wiring, but I think the box will be a hell of a lot larger. :lol:

Anybody ever look inside one? Is it a circuit board or just wired pots screwed into a metal plate?

I'd look in mine, but it's a 30 minute drive from my house.

I have a long stock Roadster switch and am curious to see if I can make my own 2-row version of
rather than buying one.
Only the long roadster switch is TRVE! Thing is fucking mental looking :lol:

I think it can be done without too much hassle, just be sure that the channel switches are momentary, and the others are latching (I think).

Wait, someone actually uses the footpedals that come with Mesa amps?

They've always sat in the box for me. Wire it up MIDI!!

I used mine, which was the super duper long Roadster one. I can't think of any reason why not to. :shrug:

I looked inside my Road King one when I had it, and yeah, it's a big old circuit board with loads of stuff on it. But as Vince said, you can just use the switching jacks and wire it up to a midi controller switcher ;)
