TESI Switch – IDO Super M 10mm – Stainless Steel or Black – Momentary Kill Switch!


PARTS! PARTS! PARTS! Super high quality and UBER COOL Tesi switches! Kill the buzz with one of these!


Hoagland Custom, located in sunny Fernandina Beach, Florida, has specialized in custom guitar wiring and pickup building for over 25 years… & we love what we do!


The IDO Super M 10MM kill switch is perfect for the player that doesn’t want to make a major modification to his or her guitar.  This is the perfect size to replace a standard 3/8″ potentiometer with NO DRILLING.  If you have a smaller potentiometer on an Asian import guitar, only minimal modification to the hole is required. Asian potentiometers are typically 9mm.


  • Type: Momentary Push Button Switch
  • Operation Type: Normally Open (yes, this is correct for instrument kill switch operation.)

Housing Material: 

  • Stainless Steel : Stainless Steel
  • Black, Red or Gold :  Plated Brass
  • Mounting hole Size: 10mm
  • Mounting Panel Thickness: 1mm-6mm
  • Operation Pressure: about 5n
  • Operation Stroke: 2.0 mm
  • Contact Resistance: 50 mOhm
  • Mechanical Life: 500,000 cycles

What does all this mean?  You’re getting a tough switch that will last a long time in your instrument and look good doing it!

The switch is easy to install. If you have the slightest bit of skill with a soldering iron you can do it yourself. If you do not have that skill, you should have a guitar repair person do it.  The mounting hole is slightly larger than a standard volume or tone pot (10MM vs. 9MM) which which makes this the closest measurement to your standard pot hole, and if you decide to go back to your original setup, you don’t have to buy a new pickguard or repair that hole in your wood.  The difference is thickness of a heavy guitar pick!

The Tesi Switch Difference:

Tesi tests every switch before packaging it.  As a result, the failure rate is less than 1%.

If something does go wrong, Tesi switches have a 1-Year Guarantee against defect or failure.

While all of our wiring solutions are built to be installed rather easily, we always recommend that you have a guitar professional at your local guitar shop install it for you.
