Product Highlight – SCI Pushbutton Foot Switch

Musicians are some of the most particular artists in the world, and when it comes to their gear, musicians are fanatical about what they use. Their instruments and equipment must be of the highest sound quality, and must also stand up to the wear-and-tear of being on the road. Hell hath no fury like a musician with failing equipment!

The world’s leading manufacturers of audio effects use the R13-85 series foot switch from SCI (Shin Chin Industrial Co.) in their highest performance products. The R13-85 is robustly constructed and built with a nickel plated solid brass actuator that can take a beating for many thousands of stomps. It is an SPST (Single-Pole, Single Throw) switch, available in Momentary On and Momentary Off versions, and features four different button shape options.
