Need a silent foot switch? Check out the Airturn ATFS-2
However, for live performance, a silent foot switch is the best choice. Airturn's ATFS-2 is designed to be the quietest consumer foot switch on the market today. It is a great companion to the BT-105. The ATFS-2 features a proprietary "mechanism free" design, where there are no moving parts aside from the molded hinge.
How did they do this? The switch is actuated with a rare earth neodymium magnet and a rhodium reed switch, both of which are embedded within the body of the foot switch. Manufactured in Colorado, the ATFS-2 is injection molded with a unique blend of high strength plastics, which makes the foot switch virtually indestructible.
