This single pole, single throw normally closed momentary foot switch is perfect for tap tempos, feedback loops, relays, and anywhere you want the option for a constant or fast foot tap.
Lots of people prefer a Normally Closed SPST momentary foot switch for tap tempo pedals. That's because when you tap a normally closed switch, the connection is broken (the circuit is open) earlier in the travel of the switch vs when the plunger is almost at the bottom. So it feels a bit more natural if your brain is paying attention to when your shoes hit the top of the switch vs when the switch hits its bottom.
Our pro-grade switch is easy to depress and whisper quiet. Makes a great upgrade to any existing pedal or project. Seriously strong, seriously quiet.
Beginners: Make sure your circuit can handle a normally closed switch. As general rule Boss pedals use a normally closed switch for tap tempo, most other brands use a normally open switch. Check your manual to make sure.
