Never heard of the 'Kill switch'...is it a foot pedal? Hows it used? Does anyone have one to demo?


in bucketheads case its an arcade style button on his guitar that toggles the sound on / off



really effective.

Its definitely effective. When you said arcade style button ...I didn't think it would make arcade type sound effects as well...although I realise this is effectively an on/off switch for the pickups.

yeah, TBH thats probably not the best example of how he uses it. Have a listen to the intro of this track, its more 'normal' rolleyes.gif



he kicks in at about 0.40 sec.
