• IDO LXL 16MM Latching Metal Guitar Kill Switch


    This is a LATCHING Guitar Kill Switch.  With a moderate amount of pressure you can use this as a momentary switch giving you that coveted stuttering guitar effect, but if you click it all the way in, it will mute your guitar and stay muted until you un-click it.

    NOTE:  This KILL SWITCH does not have an LED.  It will work in any guitar with no additional battery or switches required.  If you're looking for the Tesi 16mm Switch with the LED ring, search "Tesi FILO".

    What does a kill switch do? This modification to your guitar allows a quick stuttering on/off effect to your guitar signal. When used with phaser, delay, chorus and copious amounts of gain, the rhythmic possibilities are endless. Imagine Buckethead or Tom Morello without a kill switch. 

    This switch is easy to install. If you have the slightest bit of skill with a soldering iron you can do it yourself. If you do not have that skill, you should have a guitar repair person do it. 

    The mounting hole is larger than a standard volume or tone pot (16MM vs. 9MM).

    Since there is no battery it will function easily with active or passive pickups and includes:
    (1) Tesi IDO/XL Stainless Steel kill switch with the proper color-coded wiring already attached 
    (1) Set of easy-to-follow wiring instructions 

    *Please note that the photos showing two switches is for comparison between open and closed operation. This listing is for ONE switch only.
