    I bought the Mini Amp Gizmo with the interface cable for Mesa Road King II. Now I want to modify the cable, so that I can switch the mute instead of the reverb. The reverb is switched on all the time in my setup.

    Please can you send me the pinout of the Mesa® RRN (Rectifier®/Road King™/Nomad) cable? And as well the instruction sheet?

    The instruction sheet is attached.

    To get access to the mute, you'll need to replace the connector on the amp end with an 8-pin DIN. Mute is on pin 8. Move the blue wire from pin 7 (which is reverb) to pin 8.

    Thank you very much, this helps a lot!

    Just a question, for the sake of completeness, can I get the rest of the pinout?

    The connector pins on the Road King / Roadster are as follows:

    1: Ground
    2: +5 volts
    3: Channel select (different voltages on this pin select different channels)
    4: Loop (Loop 1 on RK)
    5: Solo
    6: Loop 2 (RK) or Mute (Roadster)
    7: Reverb
    8: Mute (RKII) or Ext Switch (RKI)
