Using the Fender® Mustang™ II, IV, V 2  and 4 button Footswitches
The 4 button footswitch (Part#0080996000) has three modes that are identified by the three LEDs labeled MODE 1, MODE 2 and MODE 3. Thefootswitch also has a Tuner mode which is indicated when all of the mode LEDs are off. To switch between modes, press the MODE button. To activate Tuner mode, press and hold the MODE button.

Mode 1—In Mode 1 the footswitch is used to select one of three Quick Access presets, using the buttons labeled: QA1 /QA2 / QA3 (in line with the MODE 1 LED). When you select a Quick Access preset, the number of the preset will appear in the display of the footswitch. You can any assign any preset to be a Quick Access preset in the Utility menus. (see Utility Menus, page 6 Fender® Mustang™ Advanced Maunal http://www.fender.com/support/articles/fender-mustang-amplifier-owners-manuals).

Mode 2—In Mode 2 the footswitch is used to select presets down/up, or in banks of 10, using the buttons labeled: DOWN/ UP / BANK (in line with the MODE 2 LED). When you select a preset, the number of the preset will appear in the display of the footswitch.

Mode 3—In Mode 3 the footswitch is used to bypass the Stompbox, Modulation or Delay effects, using the buttons labeled: STOMP / MOD / DELAY (in line with the MODE 3 LED). The footswitch button LEDs indicate the effects that are active, just like the buttons on the amplifier.

You can also have a footswitch button assigned to bypass the Reverb effect by adding on the 2-button Mustang footswitch (see Six-Button Footswitching
options, below).

Two-Button Footswitch (Part#0080997000) Connect a 2-button footswitch to your Mustang amplifier (included with the Mustang III, optional equipment for the Mustang IV & V) to enable remote multi-function foot control. Use the Utility menus to assign one of the following functions to the 2-button footswitch:

• Select presets (up/down)
• Select Quick Access presets (QA1/QA2)
• Bypass effects (various combinations)
• Set TAP interval

Six-Button Footswitching options Plug both a 4-button and a 2-button footswitch into your Mustang amplifier to expand your remote control options.
By assigning different functions to each footswitch you can create more than a dozen different foot control combinations. For example, you could assign Quick Access presets to the 4-button footswitch and Up/Down presets to the 2-button footswitch. Or you could bypass effects with the 4-button
footswitch and select presets with the 2-button footswitch. The choice is up to you.
