A 3PDT true bypass kit without wiring the footswitch,
interchangeable with the relay soft switch without having to unsolder!
With our new FX Teacher kits, we decided to upgrade the footswitch. Indeed, the 3PDT is the part which is the most subjected to constraints,
both during the assembly of the kit because of its heat sensitivity, and during the use of the pedal, at home or in live.
The old V1 true bypass kits were soldered directly to the main pcb with two 4 pins connectors.
These pins are delicate to solder, and are often mounted crooked, which is a problem when placing the kit in the enclosure.
And above all, once assembled, desoldering is a meticulous operation that can damage the pedal!
So we developed on the new V2 kits a removable footswitch system, which can be replaced without having to unsolder anything!
Whether it’s to replace a broken or badly soldered footswitch on a DIY kit, or to move to a relay soft switch without clicking, the footswitch can be interchanged at will.
Need to change the footswitch on an old kit that uses two 4 pins connectors?
The new V2 kits are not compatible, but we still propose the old V1 versions of the 3PDT true bypass and relay true bypass.
Unfortunately, you’ll need to use the soldering iron and desoldering pump.
You are a DIYer and have already assembled a recent FX Teacher kit that uses the new V2 footswitch with a 2×6 pins connector? Then assembling a true bypass kit won’t scare you!
You have the choice between this classic 3PDT kit, or the relay model, which is a bit more expensive, but more durable, and uses a soft switch, which doesn’t click when pressed.
Did you order an already assembled pedal, because soldering is not for you? We also propose the 3PDT and relay V2 kits already assembled.
All you have to do is unscrew your old footswitch and connect the new one to the pedal. Make sure you have the new version of footswitch inside the pedal before you order.
To assemble the kit, just follow the instructions in our article on the true bypass. We also explain the purpose and working of the true bypass.
