Description: Put the pedal to the metal with this metal foot switch. This is the same kind of foot pedal you might find switching the power supply for a tattoo machine or as a sustain pedal on an electric piano. The non-slip pad on top and rubber bumpers on the bottom keep the pedal from slipping out of place during use. If you open it up, it’s a simple momentary switch and a big spring and that’s about it. This pedal has, however, been described as “luxuriant, elegant and generous” and I guess we’d have to agree. The 59 inch cable is terminated with a ¼" mono jack making it easy to incorporate into your next build, sounds “elegant” to us.
Dimensions: 10.5 x 7 x 3 cm

This is a good foot switch. I use it as a momentary switch for a guitar effects pedal. Works great.
One small issue is that the actual switch is screwed onto the bottom of the housing. Those screws stick out slightly farther than the rubber feet on the bottom of the housing. If you didn’t notice that, and you used this on a hardwood floor, those screws might scratch the floor. Easy fix, but i didn’t spot it at first and scraped a table I was testing it on.
