Handmade Custom Footswitches
by Dano

My Footswitches are made using antique switching devices that I refurbish myself. I use exotic hardwoods (Australian Lace Wood, Brazilian Leopard Wood, Amboyna and Maple Burl, etc.) or brass for the base. These are made to order, so give me an idea and let me run with it! All have screw mounted rubber feet. The length of the lever throw and the amount of pressure needed to depress it is fully adjustable. Some come with a "constant on" feature, allowing you to walk away from the pedal while the machine is still running. They can be used with any type of cord and jack set up. There are literally no parts that can wear out on these switches!!!
