A while ago I had to change out the kill switch on a Buckethead guitar. Problem is the switch it comes with is a midi disco trigger button, not the best. There tends to be a lot of clicking noise when you use it. I wanted to use the large format button so I took apart one of my favorite switches , which I can custom wire for very little noise.
I inserted the guts into the big switch. Little tricky to keep the glue in the right place but worked great. The feel was a little different but worth it to keep the noise down.
On Buckethead’s original guitar I has to change out his smaller black switch that was giving him problems. Problem was he was so used to the feel of that original switch. All I could do was take it apart, clean it, make it solid and send it on its way.
I find that every kill switch has a distinct feel and it helps to find one that fits your style.
