Alternatives to Boss FS6

Postby Kit McCarthy » 09 Oct 2018, 11:41

I'm looking to buy a program change pedal to use with my NS3, and the Boss FS6 comes highly recommended.

However, searching online, I found dual switch pedals at about a fifth of the price (such as this one). Would a cheaper pedal work as well, and what might the disadvantages of it be?

Many thanks for any help!

You have a very expensive and fantastic keyboard in the Nord Stage 3, so why scrimp and take a chance on a cheap untested pedal? The Boss comes highly recommended because it's reliable, well built and just works. Used for loads of gigs, including the demanding musical theatre environment with no issues. I've added a grippier rubber to stop it moving. Go for it, you won't refret it!
