Need a silent foot switch? Check out the Airturn ATFS-2

Airturn's BT-105 bluetooth page turner for PC, Mac and iPad along with their USB wireless AT-104 page turner have been hugely popular both in Canada and the US.  They are designed so you can use them with any pedal, and we even have some bundles that include the BOSS FS-5U foot switch.

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.

Check out our bundles that include the BT-105 and the ATFS-2 switch.
