    Does anyone know where I could buy a replacement VT Bass Pedal switch? The one I have doesn't seem to be functioning properly.

    If I push it 20 times it will probably turn on once. And then I have to push it another 20 times to turn it off.

    I have the pedal taken apart and I've never seen a switch like that before..

    Also, is there any chance it just needs to be cleaned?

    Thank you!
  2. What's the switch look like? I might have a few lying around that I could just mail to you

    The switch on our pedals is an actuator that engages the switch on the circuit board. Here is some information from our tech support team.

    If you still can't make it work or the tact switch is broken, please contact us. http://www.tech21nyc.com/support/index.html

    Mine was doing the exact same thing a while back. I can't remember exactly how I fixed, but it was easy. It involved taking the plate off of the back and spraying some electronics contact cleaner on some part of the switch and pressing it a few times. Worked like a charm.
