Guitar Killswitch Pedal with Latching or Momentary Action

Some of the world’s best pedals are simpler than the plot of a Hollywood romance film. Well, they don’t come simpler (or more stylish) than Vein-Tap.com’s proud new offering, the Murder One killswitch pedal. With the power to quickly kill your signal in two different actions, the Murder One is all the guitar killswitch pedal you’ll ever need.

The Murder One Killswitch does exactly what it says on the box; it’ll kill your signal like a terrifying, deadly assassin, cutting off all noise completely. Perhaps you’re using this to silence your insane amounts of distortion hiss or feedback in between songs (we’re looking at you, death metal guitarists), or maybe create a modern stutter guitar effect by killing and reviving your signal quickly. It’s amazing how handy these pedals are, and once you have one, you really will wonder how you managed without one.

Even at high volumes and gain levels, the Murder One’s switch won’t give horrible pops and clicks – it’s a silent and deadly signal killing machine.

Momentary or Latching?

The Murder One is available in two varieties, or “actions”. The first is “latching”, in which you step on the pedal once to kill your signal and step on it again to bring it back. The second is “momentary”, and will kill your signal only whilst you’re holding the pedal’s footswitch down. This really is a matter of personal preference; you probably already know which one you’d prefer. If you’re still a bit confused, Contact Us, and we can advise you on which you’re after.

David Bond of Bond Guitar Tuition took some time to give his views about his Momentary Murder One: see what he thinks in this video.

Of course, if you need both at once, the Murder One Dual Stutter Killswitch might be for you – check it out!

Soft Touch or Hard Click?

A lot of our customers love the soft-touch feel of the Momentary version of the Murder One, but need a Latching killswitch. “Help us,” they’d call, “can we not have the best of both worlds?” Now you can.

The Soft-Touch Latching Murder One is the star here. It’s perfect for those who want to bring the classiest of classy killswitches to their pedalboard, because they play acoustic shows with temperamental PAs, or they hate a clicking sound interfering with their carefully rehearsed loop pedal jams.

Buy a Murder One Killswitch now! Make your pedalboard that much darker. It makes more sense than hiding the evidence!

    I have two of these and pair them with a Boss LS2 pedal to allow me to chose between having one, both or neither effects loops active or dead. They work perfectly and take up no room on the pedal board. The only killswitch you’ll ever need!

    This switch arrived promptly and was well packaged. It worked straight from the box without any fuss. I have been using the Murder One with my Boss RC3 Looper pedal, it’s the perfect compliment to this pedal – with no loss in performance – it is an awesome piece of kit. Small, compact, well built like a Russian UFC fighter it is made to last. It arrived promptly, well packed and worked straight out of the box. In short; it’s performance is excellent, aesthetically pleasing, minimal footprint and it even smells good! I bet it even tastes good too (no, I’m kidding!) 5 STARS !

    Got the latching and momentary versions of this pedal I bi amp with a pog and use them to cut the channel when I’m looping with an rc30, absolutely brilliant

    I got the momentary version of the pedal, and I love it! I play a lot of Buckethead songs so this gives me the ability to do exactly what he’s doing! A neat thing about the momentary (only) pedal is you don’t have to plug it in – just stick it where you want it in your pedal chain and you’re good to go! You can get some really, really cool feedback/sound degradation effects from this if you use it right. I bought it for the manual stutter effect, but I’m pleased to see that there’s some experimentation to be had with this!

    My first pedal from Vein-Tap, but definitely not my last!

    Harmonica player + distorted amp sound through PA + cupped mic in hand + one false move close to the vocal mic = howling feedback. Not any more! – I have the non-latching version of this by the base of the mic stand and step on it when I’m singing. Problem solved. Excellent little pedal, sexy look, works perfectly. Good price too.

    I would highly recommend this pedal. I think no pedal board should be without it. I have the latching one with LED and it is good to go in-between songs now and change guitars etc without having all that static and feed back. You must get one if you don’t. And if you have the money, get the one with both latching and momentary on as I have found situations where I wish I had them both. They are also really good quality and fast delivery

    Absolutely funny!!! I’m using it with my bass, and my axes! Really easy to use: Just engage a LOT of distortion, a 5-string bass (or my Jackson), and I’m going mad!!! I love the momentary effect, and the switch is almost perfect! The pedal is crafted with superior quality, and it is gorgeous minimalistic (I love minimalistic designs)!! Highly reccomended!!!

    Absolutely amazing pedal, I use the momentary version for my bass rig, and it’s just fantastic, for such a low price as well. Excellent build quality, and is really useful to put massive emphasis into some bass grooves/lines. On top of everything it looks fantastic, and adds a bit of flavour to my board.

    All in all, an excellent buy, full 10/10, don’t think you could go wrong with this.

    Great little pedal! I have the non-latching version, which allows me to add quick stutter effects or cut the guitar out for longer periods depending on how long I hold the switch down, which can create some really cool groves! Its good value too – to add a kill switch to a guitar would cost about £25 per guitar, this is cheaper to begin with, and because it’s on your pedal board you only need one, and you can use with all your guitars. Also, because this a foot controlled pedal, it leaves both hands free to play the guitar (normally one hand would be used to operate the killswitch). Lastly, the build quality is excellent; this is a well thought out, well put together, really cool pedal, and comes highly recommended!

    Do you have a friend that always plays when you want say something or play yourself?! Buy a Murder One Killswitch, put it in his rig (he or even she will accept it because it looks bad-ass!) and you can make him or her shut up at any time! BIG WIN!

    I love this pedal! i have a mometery and a latching the lacthing for when i want my guitar to shut up and i can sing and the momentary so i can flick it like a fine women’s bean to make some amazing nu metal sounds. and more to the point this pedal has never had any problem with anything else in my rig as i run 2 noise gates and a rack mount compressor. and it still sounds sweet and fine, it’s in fact better than the kill switch i had installed on one of my guitars. A truly amazing pedal that i don’t know how i lived without it and the momentary gets sorely abused in every song 10/10
