Introduction: Killswitch No Drilling or Soldering EASY!!!!

Picture of Killswitch No Drilling or Soldering EASY!!!!


this cost 2.99$. you need a normally open switch!!!!!

a killswitche is a momentary switch, that when pressed, stops signal from going out of the guitar and going into the amp. Basically, when the button is pressed, there is no noise. Les Paul players usually achieve this effect by setting one pickup's volume to zero, and switching back and forth between pickups, creating a shuttering effect. However, this cannot be done on a Strat., since there is only one volume potentiometer.

sorry, is it ok to put the switch on the outgoing signal? not the volume pot? im just asking anyway coz my rgx is so hard to put it on the volume pot, im wondering if its fine to put it like yours now

Nice. The tape can still damage a guitar, though.

Hey, is this only possible with a button-style switch? Can you not use a toggle switch?

Clayton H. (author)proswimmer892008-06-07

You could use a toggle switch but it would be a pain in the as to keep switching it on and off

Nothing came across on the initial RSS feed (which sends out the intro step), but it seems that he's added a good description of what the heck this kind of kill switch is for. Good job.

Try reading the intro. It explains exactly what a killswitch is. Have you ever left a positive comment for anyone's instructable?

jdthedj (author)Geordiepom2008-03-21

thanks ac1D for your idea and Geordiepom wait before post stupid comments if you don't now because its real, I added the intro after his comment.

ac1D (author)Geordiepom2008-03-20

if you would not be stupid: you would had seen that i have left lot of good comment, bad comment when needed. there is no bad comment from me here, only a question. And, for your information, he added the intro after my comment. And it is why my comment was usefull. Usefull and constructive. well, way more than your. Now, get out of here.(ugh, i already imagine your reply).

I never knew it was that easy.. Nice job! I might try this out for my Warlock. And you might want to try using the macro mode on your camera, it's the little flower. It really helps.
