    Two of my switches on my Timeline are going out on me, the middle and the tap...

    Any idea what kind they use and where to get them?

    How old is your Timeline ? I'd contact Strymon.

    I have, and thought I might get a faster response here.

    I've never opened up one of their pedals, is it a tough job or just like soldering a switch for any other pedal?

    I had an issue with my El Cap and emailed them. Got a reply same day. That's pretty quick. Turned out the issue was attributed to operator error, moi.:rolleyes:

    I had an issue with my El Cap and they wanted $75 + shipping to look at it. It's sitting in a cupboard with my other broken pedals.

    It's actually extremely easy. They have a little socked that pops out with the switches. Cut old switches from that. Solder new ones in. bam. I would say it's probably the easiest mod I've done to anything.

    Contact Strymon to get some new switches, they are extremely easy to replace and no soldering is needed. I got my Timeline the day they came out and finally had to replace all the foot switches last year since they were starting to wear out and not register when I would tap them, now it is as good as new!

    Good to know, that's exactly what's happening with mine. Especially the tap tempo. I ordered them and they are on their way.
