    Hey,
    Anyone know where i can get one of those small tap tempo switches?

    I've ran some searches and checked out loop-master but i want a soft switch (to avoid that hard "click-y" sound). Seems like that was the biggest knock against theirs.

    Also, a few forumites mentioned that BTBAM (on TGP) makes really good tap tempo footswitches. He hasn't replied to my PM so i'm not sure if he's even around anymore - or maybe he's not doing that kind of work any longer.

    Anyway, i'm trying to get this on my board relatively quickly so if anyone has any other suggestions, i'm all ears.

    Thanks, fellas!

    FYI, here's the one that I built for myself (this was before I replaced the switch).

    Too bad BTBAM isn't responding. I really like the one he made for me.

    You must have one of the first issues. How old is it or was it?


    The one's we use now and have been using for quite a while are soft.

    That's the one I was going to recommend, but I couldn't remember it for the life of me!

    I didn't mean to imply that I had a loop-master tap. I was referring to the switch that I used in the box that I built.

    Phillip H, that's an impressive switch, man! My soldering skills are minimal so that's why i'd prefer to just buy one although i may take a crack at building one at some point.

    I didn't realize the loop-masters now had a soft switch. i was reading archived threads and that was the common complaint but it looks like they may have solved the problem.

    Thanks again,fellas! Lots of good info to get me started. :drink
