    Default best way to wire a kill switch

    is it easier to use a kill switch that is a button, like this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cwKvk0YvY2E&NR=1
    or a mini-toggle style?

    which is easier to use while playing, which can you use faster?

    Unless you're Michael Flatley from Riverdance, I'd guess your hands move faster than your feet. I'm not really sure of the purpose you're intending to use this. Wanna elaborate?

    The mini toggle switch is faster but I don't see the point in putting one in your guitar. IMO.

    kind of like a tremolo effect to add emphasis on sustained notes. or to do what the guy in the video I posted did

    Alright, but I would go with the mini-toggle. Are you doing it or a luthier?

    Its all going to depend on the intended use. I think the button kill switch would be faster and more consistant to use, but overall the mini toggle looks much better and is still effective.

    the red button switches look like complete crap. id never install one on my guitar even though it might be more practical. we all know its better to look good than to feel good.

    Ill probably go with a minitoggle (looks better, still easy enough),

    And we all can learn a lesson from all the 80s rockers that totally rocked the world wearing tight spandex pants that obviously couldn't feel good, but man did they look awesome! Its rock 'n roll
