Comments about Roland Ga-Fc Ga Foot Controller For Roland Amps:

Does it perform as advertised? Yes! Is it worth the money? Yes!

I bought this controller to use with the Boss Acoustic Singer Live acoustic amp (40 watts). It's a plug-and-play unit: pre-programmed application. Learn which switches apply to which features, apply the adhesive labels, plug it in and then learn when to use the features. This is about as mindless as foot-switch technology can get. That said, there are a couple minor issues to complain about.

To my way of thinking, the eight-foot stereo cable might be too short. In order to hear myself play and sing, I need to be in front of the amp. I usually use twenty-foot cables for the mic and guitar to get the mic comfortably away from the amp to avoid feedback. The eight-foot stereo cable for the foot switch doesn't allow me to place the mic far enough away from in front of the amp. SO, mic placement needs to go within eight on either side of the amp. This creates a monitoring problem with the amp-only setup. A separate satellite monitor would be helpful but I don't know if I'll go that way.

The other thing about this controller is that it's awkward punching in and out while standing. It seems to have been designed to operate from a sitting position. It's possible that my legs are too short to reach and belly too big to see which switch I'm reaching for with my snow-shoe feet. :-)

If you're buying this to go with one of the Boss Acoustic Singer amps, you likely bought the amp primarily for the harmony feature and possibly the 40 second recording loop. And, those are the two switches you'll be using most. It takes a while to get used to maneuvering but worth the effort. It'd be a shame to own one of those amps without this controller.
