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

THE KILLSWITCH WITH DRILLING AND SOLDERING SCARE YOU this is for you!!!

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.

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

    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?

    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.
