Can I Use This Switch?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have an AC push button interrupter that is usually used for things like door bells and buzzers. I originally bought it to use for my AC WC pump, but I didn't realize that it was an interrupter, I thought it was a toggle button. Soo... I that I might be able to use it on my electric bass (which is DC) to use it as a off/on high range toggle. I am a total noob when it comes to most electrical things, I assume that the AC switch wouldent work with a DC configuration, but I thought I would give it a try.

In short; will this AC toggle button work on my DC bass?
Wait, are electric basses DC? I'm pretty sure they are but I just want to make sure.

if when you press the switch and it completes the circut, it should work with DC circuts.

Sounds like it is a momentary switch, that is, it is only on while being pressed, if so it will not stay on unless it is held down.

Not really... the button itself is similar to that but the actual switch (which is behind it) stays on until pressed again, or pressed and held depending on the setup.

I realized that this swith was one of them switches where you have to hold it down, in order for the circut to be completed. But I'm not sure if I want to still use it. Thanks or the info guys.
