- Sometimes you want to make a statement.
You don’t just want to speak, you want to yell.
You don’t just want to paint, you want to drench.
Playing guitar is as tactical as it is creative,
and knowing how to surprise an audience
can be the difference between "so-so" or creating a remarkable impression.
Knowing when and being able to pull out the stops,
just at the height of tension,
can make your performance linger well beyond its time.
It can be a way of not just speaking but being heard.
A killswitch is a tool that can you accomplish just that.
To push your music even further and to break the tension like a fever.
Killswitches are a simple,
easy way to add a whole new dimension to your playing,
and totally transform your guitar into a show-stopper.
A guitar kill-switch works by momentarily cutting power to your pickups while pressed.
Once you release the button, all sound instantly resumes back to normal.
This does not harm your pickups or electronics at all, and is done by simply grounding out the pickup signal.
When used rhythmically & in conjunction with your playing,
it creates a choppy/staccato effect that some prominent guitarists have adopted as a staple to their playing.
(Buckethead, Eddie Van Halen, & Tom Morello)
“The music is not in the notes, but in the silence between.”
Lucky for you, these switches are compatible with BOTH passive & active pickup guitar setups.
It just depends on the configuration you want to use.
Do you want control of the LED? A passive install kit w/ micro switch will do.
Do you want the LED to automatically turn on when the instrument cable is inserted? Then an active install kit with a stereo jack will do the trick. (Most active-pickup guitars already have one installed!)
Can you use the killswitch without the LED? For sure, simply cap off the two lighting wires. The switch will still function 100%
Do these work on bass guitars too? Absolutely worked on this awesome Krashburn Atlass II Bass :)

No more evil kill-boxes or tacky buttons!
Each of our killswitches features a stealthy black finish to have your guitar looking like a nighthawk stealth bomber.
The aircraft-grade aluminum body is nothing less than rugged too. Up for anything you throw at it, and ready to provide countless hours of fun effects.
The button's action leaves a satisfying click in its wake, providing you with accurate, reliable functionality. It's also a joy to press!
On a dark stage, the illuminated button is a real eye-grab, and can be quickly pinpointed without missing a beat.
To make life just a bit easier for you, each switch comes with professionally soldered leads. This saves you time & some of the hassle of having to hook up extra wires.
Installation is a cinch with just some basic wiring skills. There's 2 killswitch wires, & 2 LED wires. There's no need for complicated splicing or wire-routing. You can have your switch up & running in as little as half an hour.
There's 6 LED colors available to light up the stage!
Blue, Green, Magenta, Red, Yellow, & White
Are LED Lights not your thing? No worries. You can simply cap off the LED wires & leave them unhooked. Just connect the remaining 2 killswitch wires.
You still get 100% functionality & a low-key stealthy look.
