What does all this mean?  You're getting a tough switch that will last a long time in your instrument and look good doing it!  

The switch is easy to install. If you have the slightest bit of skill with a soldering iron you can do it yourself. If you do not have that skill, you should have a guitar repair person do it.  

This package comes with everything:

  • (1) Tesi FILO 16mm Momentary Guitar Kill Switch  
  • (1) Tesi Quick-Connect wiring Bundle that includes:
  •      (1) Black/Black ground wire
  •      (1) Black/White hot wire
  •      (1) 9V Battery Harness with 330 Ohm resistor
  •      (1) On/Off Rocker Switch
  • (1) Set of easy-to-follow wiring instructions
  • (1) Spare 270 Ohm resistor for custom wiring jobs

When used with active pickups and/or a stereo output jack (not included) the Tesi FILO does not require the included on/off rocker switch.

Each Tesi Guitar Kill Switch is guaranteed against defect for one year from the date of sale.  Contact us for more details.

The Tesi Switch Difference:

We test every switch before packaging it.  As a result, the failure rate is less than 1%.  We package the 12MM and larger switches in a custom cut foam block and place in a small box for protection. The box also includes a couple of Tesi Switch guitar picks, as well as all the wiring necessary to install in an active or passive system, and we are always happy to help with installation questions.

If something does go wrong, our switches have a 1-Year Guarantee against defect or failure.  

PLEASE NOTE: Do not try to connect the switch directly to a battery. The LED is a 6V bulb and requires a resistor with a minimum value of 270 Ohms to work with a 9V battery.
