Kill Switch Wiring


Recommended Posts

If you use the 3-way pickup toggle off a Les Paul, you'll have On-Off-Off. You'd just wire the hot from the volume to the middle lug, then a wire to the tip of the output jack on one lug and a wire to ground on the other(or nowhere, that'd give you On-On-Off, but it'd be noisier when in the off position).

You'd be better off with a momentary switch with a soft touch that runs your signal to ground when you hit it. Those are far more useful. I have a toggle killswitch and it's completely useless unless I just want to stop my amp from feedbacking or something.
