3PDT Stomp Switch

About This Item

A special replacement footswitch for pedals and effects boxes. Modify your effects for true bypass and even wire a status indicator LED.

For pedals and effects!
Ever notice how a wah-wah and other vintage-style effects color your sound and mess with the tone of your other pedals, even when turned off? That's because many guitar effects aren't wired for a true bypass. This will muddy your tone, and cause other effects in the signal chain to lose volume.

Use this special triple-pole double-throw 9-lug footswitch to rewire vintage pedals or effects boxes. It allows unbuffered bypassing of the effect circuit without coloring the tone of the instrument or other components in the signal chain. The third pole can be wired to control an LED status light or other custom function. This is useful for stage performers, as it leaves no question if the "box" is on or off.

At least 1" (25.4mm) depth and a 1/2"-diameter (12.70mm) mounting hole are required. The threaded portion is 7/16" (11.11mm) tall.

Hex nuts, spring washer, flat washer and wiring instructions are included. Color of switch housing may vary.

A solid, well built switch. Far better than the Taiwanese knockoffs. A little steep at $12.95 per, but buy three for $9.95 and you have a great value. Can be wired several ways. eg., LED with transistor. Recommended

If you have stomp boxes that just can't be replaced you need these switches in each one, you can have your cake and eat it too.

After years of using the old Carlington switches on my MXR and DOD effects pedals, this came as a breath of fresh air. Why weren't these invented in the 60's?

This switch is built well. I was able to re-wire my Memory Man so that the indicator light would only come on with the effect engaged. It's worked like a charm. And of course, the customer service was excellent.

Every other site I've found that sells 3PDT's sells the same cheap, blue, Taiwanese switch. Thank you StewMac for being more concerned about quality than price. Put this bad boy in there a couple months ago and it's still holding strong. Worth every single bit of the extra money! Buy it!
