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 NELLI 16mm Momentary Guitar Kill Switch - This is the size used on the Wolfgang Tour Guitar.
  • (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 NELLI 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.

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.  Using a 9V battery without the resistor voids the warranty on the switch.
