    DSL50 comes with two channels.. classic and ultra - which are footswitchable.

    However each channel has two settings:
    Classic - Clean/Crunch
    Ultra - Lead1/Lead2

    I want to be able to footswitch between the two settings on the Classic channel. Is this possible? The amp came with a marshall channel selector footswitch..which lets me switch between Classic and Ultra, but not the individual setttings.

    is there another Marshall footswitch which will allow me to this?

    i'm about 99% sure the anwser is no. With the exception of the DSL401 (1x12 combo) which allows you to activate the 'boost' on the lead channel via footswitch, the DSL line operates as a true, 2-channel amp; This isn't to say that a skilled tech couldn't modify the amp for you but as it stands, i think you're out of luck.

    The issue isn't actually with the footswitch, it's in the circuit board inside the amp. The way that circuit boards are made today, I think that it would be a difficult job to cut into the switching circuit that selects between "Clean/Crunch" and add a 1/4" jack somewhere to plug a "standard" footswitch in. You might ask your local Marshall dealer if there is a competent repairman they know who can perform this surgery. GOOD LUCK!
