After weeks of demoing switch after switch, we have unanimously found what we think is the Best! We at Mad Hatter Guitar Products believe The Mad Hatter "Rapid Fire" Kill Switch is the Best in Kill Switch Technology.
The switch is available with either a short lead to be mounted in the control cavity, or with a long shielded lead for mounting in remote locations.
The Mad Hatter "Rapid Fire" Kill Switch is a "normally open" switch pre-soldered with two wires to terminate in parallel with the common and hot wires of the output jack.
To attach to the Mad Hatter Terminator System the switch Black and Red wires should respectively attach to the same terminals as the Black and Red wires from the output jack.
For solder applications solder the black wire to ground, typically to one of the pots, and the red wire to the output jack hot wire.
*** Attachment to a pickguard will require a clearance hole of .469" (15/32") or 12mm ***
** VERY IMPORTANT - In most direct to body installations the switch thread area will not be long enough to allow attachment with the provided nut and washer. Use a .453" (29/64") or 11.5mm hole and carefully hand thread the switch into the hole. **
