Tesi Switch - IDO Super M 10mm Momentary Kill Switch Button

£13.33

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 10MM kill switch is perfect for the player that doesn't want to make a major modification to their guitar.  This is the perfect size to replace a standard CTS style 3/8" / 9.52mm mounting thread diameter potentiometer. If you have a smaller pots on an Asian import guitar, only minimal modification to the hole is required, or you can instead purchase the 8mm version also available here! Metric/Far eastern spec pots are typically 8mm

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.

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