CUSTOMER NOTICE - I am closed between Friday 1st March and Monday 4th March due to exhibiting at The Guitar Show 2024.

Tesi Switch - IDO 12mm Metal Momentary Push Button Guitar Kill Switch

£14.99

About

I was really impressed by these kill switches after inspecting/using one, they have a couple of useful features which I'll touch on in a moment, that make them great for guitar mods. I am now a UK authorised dealer for Tesi Switch and you'll find a great selection of their kill switches here in stock at the Home of Tone!

The IDO Super M 12MM kill switch is perfect for the player that doesn't want to make a major modification to their guitar as these will fit comfortably in a 12mm diameter hole, like those found on pickup selector toggle switches for example. (These are popular for retrofit in placement of a Les Paul toggle position). 

Specs

Installation

These are nice and easy to install, two solder connections required but if you have any concerns about installing I highly recommend having a skilled guitar repairer to carry out the install for you to save any issues caused. Some useful fitting instructions can be found HERE. Or alternatively, if you are local, then I am more than happy to carry out professional installation here. Please check out the Guitar Services page HERE

It is supplied with 8" of black and white pre-soldered wire length, so you simply solder the other end of the wire in it's desired position (jack + and point of ground for example) and mount the switch.

This switch can be used with active or passive pickups with no additional parts required. 

Availability

All finishes currently in stock and available for dispatch from the UK, here at James' Home of Tone
