    Hi all,
    After gigging with this amp I wondered if it was possible to modify the pedal with an led to show which channel the amp was in....

    I think this is what DTR was talking about.
    I’m sure Em7 can help you out with this.

    Its possible, but you would have to change the switches out and add a battery to run the leds.

    I have not seen the inside of an MT15, but if it uses relay-based switching, then a mod like I created for the 2-Channel will provide LED-based footswitching without having to install a battery in the footswitch. My mod also works if a non-LED-based pedal is inserted into the footswitch jack. However, it does take a specially wired LED footswitch.

    Yes, I created the mod after Experience 2012. People were asking Doug for a footswitch that had LEDs. Doug's LED footswitch design required a battery. I went home, thought about the problem for an evening, and came up with the mod.

    It is not simple plug-and-plug solution. The mod was tailored to the 2-Channel "C" and "H." You have to rewire the footswitch jack, insert a small circuit board, and tap the relay power supply for V+. If the MT15 uses relays, then a similar solution could be developed.

    If you’re sticking it on a pedalboard you could power it with your psu maybe? Gotta make sure it’s well isolated though.
