    Hey everybody!
    I’m looking at purchasing a JCM 4212 combo because I have heard that they have a channel selector between distortion and clean channels? Can anybody confirm this?
    I play and tour for the band shorelines and I need the option to select between the two channels.

    Thank you

    Yep. a footswitch with channel and reverb should work if you don't have the original one. I have a 4212 and love it. Try a patch cable in the effect loop or use a eq for added oomph.

    The original footswitches for those are so cheaply made, with a plastic housing. Get a newer 2 button Marshall footswitch.
