Boss FS-5U Pedal - How can I get it to change patches?

I'm new... My understanding is that the abovementioned pedal can be used to switch patches (i.e. go from patch 1, to 2, to 3, etc.); however, I cannot get mine to work. Any suggestions? Thanks, KR

Try the follwing:

press <SYSTEM>

press <PAGE+> until CONTROL SW is shown.

press <ENTER>

Parameter: CtrlSW

press your FootSwitch (FS-5U) so the indicator-LED on your SPD-S for the footswitch is lit (or hold down <SHIFT> while pressing <PAGE> until footSW is lit)

Change the value of CtrlSW by pressing <+> / <-> until PATCH+ is shown on the display.

.. this should solve your problem.

By the way:
if you go to: ftp://ftp.roland.co.uk/productsupport/Manuals/
you will find the manual of the SPD-S for download.
On page 79 is the description for your request.

Best regards,

How to connect an expression pedal to a Boss gt-3


Just plug FS-5U or FS-5L or EV5 / FV300L (Roland),or other external switch to SUB EXP PEDAL.
You can also use pedal switch that you create by yourself.
Use stereo phone jack and cable.
It can be function for 1 or 2 switch.
Setting function for SUB-EXP-PEDAL is at UTILITY-GLOBAL menu.
You can set switch 1 or 2 for what do you want to function each switch at the external pedal.
If you want to connecting external expression pedal (FV300L),just plug it to SUB-EXP-PEDAL. Setting is same as above.

My boss me 25 pedal's sound isn't as clear and good as the demos' sound. My amp is a randall RT100 which is a valve amp and my guitar is an LTD with the custom pickups. so the problem is the setting i'm...


I have the Boss ME 50. Here's things to try. Use wall outlet to power the 25 instead of batteries. Have volume on amp up, volume on pedal all the way up, volume pedal all the way up(depressed), no gain on amp(use clean channel or clean setting if only 1 channel)effects on amp off(reverb, chorus, delay, boost, etc.) mid range knob below 5. only 1 pickup on, guitar tone knob all the way towards treble. If this puts you in the ballpark you can then make slight tweaks to any of these settings. What we're trying to do is not run a dirty sound from the pedal board into an amp with dirty settings. That double dirt often causes a muddy sound. Aside from that you can back off on various effects in the patches. My 50 has a list of the patches and factory settings, so if the drive, for example is set on 8, I might back it off to 4, or the compressor, or the delay, etc. If you like the sound save it. If not continue on. Start with the amp 1st. Higher output tubes(such as JJ's produce a cleaner sound. Also the demo you heard was not coming from your guitar speaker which may not be on the clean side.

I have the Boss RC-50 Loopstation. It has been great. Perfect operation for about 8 months. Today, when I started to use it, I noticed that I couldn't select "Phrase 1" by tapping the pedal....


Likely the switch contacts for that pedal have failed. You will probably have to get it repaired. Stomping on the pedals is a good way to damage them, but the switches are often marginally designed anyway...

If you can access the switch you could try getting some CRC226 available at Home Depot in the electrical department into the switch, but often the internal parts of switches fail.

There is a constant loud hum/buzz whenever I turn the pedal on. With my Boss Mt 2 Metal Zone effects pedal. It happens whether or not the power supply is plugged in. Ive tried switching cables and...


First and foremost , check your signal chain. By that, i mean put the pedal aside, ...just unhook it and take it out of your signal path. Using the same cables , guitar , amp, other pedals - borrow a friends MT-2 if you can get one , and try THAT to see if THAT works , OR any other kind of distortion pedal. If another one works ok , it's YOUR MT-2. Boss pedals are pretty rugged , but sometimes the little actuator (on/off switch) underneath the treadle (where you push your foot down) will become faulty. That's a high-gain pedal - are you using a basic Strat or other single-coil pickup guitar? If so , are you playing close to any flourescent lights? SIngle coils are noisy around those lights. Will cause a hum / buzz if using a heavy dist. pedal. You can check that by moving around as you play.

I don't know how to set my roland u-20 for using a hold pedal "Kurzweil". My hold pedal is new, but i can´t make it work.


The Roland requires a NORMALLY CLOSED contact and that usually cannot be changed.

You will need to reverse the contacts in your pedal to meet that requirement.

OFTEN the pedals have BOTH contacts and you just have to unsolder and move the wire to the opposite contact. This is a common problem

How to set up with amp and distortion pedal


With everything switched off. I will surmise that you are using the onboard battery with the foot pedal and not a power supply.
1. Plug lead from guitar/instrument into INPUT side of pedal
2. Plug lead from OUTPUT side of pedal into amplifier INPUT.
3. Turn amplifier volume to about 10 o'clock - to stop blowing your ears out.
4. Turn volume up on guitar to acceptable level.
5. press foot switch on pedal and adjust pedal controls to suit your type of distortion.
6. Play like Hendrix.
Good Luck
ps Just as an after thought rechargeable 9volt batteries are the way to go. I've been using them for years as I always get caught up in the power cable.
If you're going to add another pedal like a Phaser, Compressor, Flanger or what just use small connect leads between each pedal but always, always put the compressor pedal last in the line.
