Switch gives problems after prolonged use  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have purchased two of these footswitches. They are well constructed and do not slide around too bad on my rug. They initially worked very well but after about 1 year of use they both became intermittent in that the switch would not provide a positive closure to key the rig. The keying is "choppy". After the second one got this problem I am on the search for a better switch.
