Momentarily grounding the guitar's output to produce staccato effects.

The Epiphone KillPot

The staccato effect was quite startling when it was first heard in the 60s. Guitarists like Pete Townshend, Jimmy Page and Jimi Hendrix, first created the effect by flipping their pickup selector toggle switch rapidly between pickup settings.

The Epiphone KillPot™ is integrated into a tone pot and creates the same effect via its own dedicated control, providing a longer lasting and more reliable alternative to agressively abusing your toggle switch.
