Need Footswitch with LED for Peavey Classic 30 or Delta Blues

Howdee, I need a footswitch with an LED to indicate which channel I'm in. I have a Peavey Classic 30 and a Delta Blues. They both come with the two button switch with no LEDs. Will the footswitch for the Peavey ValveKing work?? (it has LEDs) I don't care about the use of the second button (I don't switch off the reverb and I have a separate tremelo box). I bought a VoodooMan switch with an LED, but it won't work on the Peaveys.

You'll need a switch with an internal power source (battery). I don't believe that the Classic series carries voltage through the footswitch to light and LED. You could probably mod your existing footswitch to light an LED by swapping out the switches to 3PDT and adding the battery, LEDs and 4.7k resisters on the additional poles.

Here's a Harmony Central thread with the schematic:
Washburn USA Custom Shop P4 Deluxe, USA G&L Legacy, Gretsch Power Jet Firebird, Gibson SG Classic, 72 Tele Deluxe RI, Ibanez Artcore AM73
MusicomLab Efx MkII - Zvex Fuzz Factory - ProCo Vintage Rat - Menatone Red Snapper - MXR DynaComp -
Eventide Modfactor - BBE Two Timer - Digitech Digidelay - Boss Line Selector - Boss Tuner
Fender Super Champ XD, Kustom 36 Coupe or Randall RM20 with Vox 2x10 cab

I had a well built Bespeco footswitch with an LED.
