    Default DIY push on/off button

    Anybody have a good source for a cool but simple on off button for a DIY amp?

    I would like it to be a round brush nickel button with/without a blue light around the button.

    I have googled and searched but I have come up empty.

    Thanks,

    Scott

    Short answer - no I don't.
    Slightly longer answer: Here are two - potentially - good places to look (if you haven't already):
    www.allelectronics.com
    www.partsconnexion.com

    EDIT: Towson, eh? I went to high school in Towson :-)

    oh, another potential source - www.tubesandmore.com

    I used this switch on my preamp, and it works great and is quite bright; only requires 120v source to power the LEDs which is nice. Black body is not my favorite, but switch is cheap is works well.

    I have one exactly like you are talking about in my DIY DAC, but green instead of blue that I got from mouser. I don't remember the manufacturer, but I'll try to search it out. I bought it over 2 years ago, so I don't know if they still carry it or not. I know it came in blue as well. Let me check and I'll post again if I find it.

    Does it need to be single pole or double pole, or what configuration? The one I have is DPDT.

    I found these, but they are all SPST. Hopefully one of these works: http://www.mouser.com/Schurter/Elect...z0z810&FS=True

    It's similar to the switch I used.

    Nope, got it. It's just like this one:http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/...KOxSsu7DrTqjuz

    Wiring up a touch mount switch would be pretty cool on an amp.
