If I ever manage to get my hands on a proper strat, the first thing I'd do is add a neck-on switch, to get the neck and bridge pickups on together...It's sort of like a push-pull, except it's a button on the volume knob.
I don't really see the appeal - if I were to buy a new strat, I'd probably have the thing gutted and replaced with a standard 5-way.
For a strat-style knob, I think it's better, because they tend to taper towards the top, making them hard to pull up on with moist hands. Barrel, knurled knobs make push/pull switches a sure thing.Except it is not as cool as a push/push pot, since you have to hit the button inside the knob, rather than just the knob.
No, a push/push acts like the on/off switch on your typical footswitch.The S-1 is a push/push, but it pushes down, then comes back out on the second push, right? I think a standard push/push just comes up to the same spot, which is why I've never used one. You can't just look at it and tell where you are :lol:
Or, I could be wrong.
Actually I have used a Fender Strat with the S-1 system and when its "On" it is indented in the knob a little bit. That is how you know... At least thats how the one I was playing was like :lol:Right, so you can't just look at it and know if it's on or off? I think that's the issue I have with putting those on a guitar. Unless there's an LED indicator :lol:
