Need the cables for crate flex wave footswitch


They look to be 1/4" stereo male to male jacks (known also as TRS). I don't know where you are but they are easily available.

You need a pair of them at the length you need.

Crate three button foot swich how do you connect it to the amp


The Fender Hot Rod Deluxe shows a 2-button footswitch as standard but I'm confused. This link shows it as connected to the amp via a mono cable ... FENDER Hot Rod Deluxe DeVille Footswitch which is impossible using two switches. Normally it's a stereo (tip, ring, sleeve) with tip to sleeve being one connection, and ring to sleeve the other. Good luck with this one.

Crate flexwave 120 head effects malfunctioning


That is probably a momentary switch that is dirty and sticking. These onboard effects on guitar amps are usually nothing more than a computer sound card and I've found bad connections going to and from them as well. I do think that switch is dirty and sticking, though.

Wiring a crate 2 button footswitch to work with the prometheam ibenez bass amp...can it be done?


Mixing brands on footswitches, even within the same brand but different series is NEVER a good idea. While many can be converted by elecvtronics competent techs, the effort is usually not worth it for anything other than the simplest footswitch.

My clean channel wont turn on. Light just stays red on distortion.


Insufficent information !!! Are you controlling this by the footswitch or the onboard switch? If the onboard switch and you HAVE at some point used the footswitch, likely the contact on the footswitch jack has failed that transfers control to the internal switch. If you haven't tried the footswitch see if that has control. I can send you the link to the schematics if you know how to read them. Here they are:

ON my fender mustang II as I switch channels with my footswitch there' s a lag before the sound comes up


Possibly you are holding the switch down???... it MAY activate on the release of the switch. Try quick tap on switch.
I tried to find schematic to analyze this but could not find one.

Fender Hot Rod Deluxe Footswitch


Main thing to verify is that the particular footswitch and cable you have is specifically for that amp. If it is not the right one, that is your problem as there is very little compatibility among footswitches.
Looking at the schematic, plugging in JUST the cable shifts operation as you observed. This uses a crazy circuit in which AC is applied on the cable and the footswitch has a diode each direction that causes the amp to shift between the states. when you plug a bare cable in, it disconnects the internal diodes and switches for control at the amp, hence the signals float.
You should investigate the footswitch to make sure it is the right type with the diodes resistors and caps that is for the Fender Deluxe.

You can find the schematic for the amp here:

http://www.fender.com/support/amp_schematics/pdfs/Hot_Rod_Deluxe_Schematic.pdf

Look at the circuitry of the switches on the schematic at C8. Your pedal should have similar circuitry. Assuming your cable is good, the problem would be in the pedal itself.
