A Fine Balance of Subtlety & Presence For Your Guitar
"Emphasize & Accentuate Your Riffs, All With A Press Of A Button"
With over a dozen killswitch models available,
there's something about this one that carries forth a more timeless feel.
It walks the line of modern customization at heart,
but with a vintage soul.
When you're looking for that "extra something",
that special touch to complete your coveted build,
this switch is certainly one to ponder.
Not only is it an excellent addition to your playing dynamics,
allowing your to chop up your favorite sounds in a form of "staccato",
it also adds a certain element of distinction to your music
and your guitar.
It allows you to proceed with firm emphasis & accentuate just the right progressions. The power of your axe, all at your fingertips with the press of a button.*Intended for high-gain applications,
These momentary kill-switches work by "killing" the power to your pickups while being pressed, and resume to your normal tone when they're released.
When used rhythmically as a technique with your playing,
it creates a staccato/stuttering effect that some noteworthy guitarists have incorporated into their playing.
(Buckethead, Eddie Van Halen, & Tom Morello)
They can be used to manipulate certain sounds like chopping up feedback into morse code, creating all sorts of cool sounds, & conjuring new rhythmic soundscapes.
“In music, silence is more important that sound”
It just depends on the configuration you want to use.
Do you want control of the LED? Any toggle switch will work for this, but we also offer some micro-switches on our Installation Kit page. (Install Kits are optional & sold separately)
Do you want the LED to automatically turn on when the instrument cable is inserted? Then a simple stereo jack will do the trick. Most active-pickup guitars already have one installed! These are also available on our Installation Kit page. (Install Kits are optional & sold separately)
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 :)
Hundreds of satisfied customers have successfully turned their guitars into outstanding gems without much trouble at all.
In part because of the resources we've provided & our willingness to help.
