Genuine Schaller Megaswitch M Rotary
Manufacturers Part Number: 15330006

Best materials, extremely rugged metal housings and super solid moving parts with gold-plated conducting paths ensure perfect sound, superb functionality and a long service life. Manufactured for extreme precision: Snaps cleanly into all switch positions.

With simple installation and a lot of flexibility, these switches substantially broaden the range of possible sounds on electric guitars. They allow coil combinations on the pickups which are impossible to create using conventional standard switches.

 
You can use Megaswitch M for the following switching positions:
 
SSS4
This is another version of the SSS2 and the SSS3. The connections and resultant sounds in positions 1, 2, 4 and 5 the same as usual. In position 3 however, the bridge and neck pickups are switched in series. This creats a fuller, softer sound than parallel switching. This configuration requires the Megaswitch M. It is advisable here to connect the two tone controls to the neck and bridge pickups. If a reduction in the high frequencies is required in position 3, both tone controls must be adjusted accordingly. When the magnetic orientation is S-N-S or N-S-N, positions 2 and 4 are buzz-free. If a buzz-free sound is required in position 3 however, this can be obtained by exchanging the neck and the middle pickups, which in turn results in a buzzing sound in position 2. A buzz-free sound can also be obtained in position 3 by exchanging the middle and bridge pickups, which makes position 4 buzz.
 
SSS5
This version enables a number of configurations, including three different switching-in-series positions.
 
Position 1: Bridge pickup only.
Position 2: Bridge and middle pickup in series
Position 3: Bridge and neck pickups in series
Position 4: Middle and neck pickups in series
Position 5: Neck pickup only
 
This configuration range requires the Megaswitch M. When the connections between O und U are not made, all three pickups are switched in series in position 3. Just one tone control is advisable here. The following magnetic orientation creates a buzz-free sound in positions 2 and 4: S-N-S or N-S-N. When a buzz-free sound is required in position 3, the neck and middle pickup should be exchanged, which in turn creates buzz in position 2. Another solution is to exchange the middle and bridge pickups which creates buzz in position 4 however.
 
HH5
Here, the Humbuckers are split in position 2 and 4, although the outer coils remain in active mode. By reversing the coil connections, it is also equally possible to configure both inner coils, or one inner and one outer coil in active mode. A buzz-free sound can be obtained by making a north pole and a South Pole coil work together. The Megaswitch M is ideal for this purpose.
 
HH6
This is a variation on the HH5. Here, both Humbuckers are split in position 3. The sound is brighter as a result. By reversing the coil connections, it is equally possible to make both inner coils or an inner coil and an outer one to remain in operating mode. A buzz-free sound can be obtained when a north pole coil and a south pole coil remain active. The Megaswitch M is ideal for this purpose.
 
HH8
Here, the coils of the Humbucker are switched parallel in positions 2 and 4. All positions are buzz-free. The Megaswitch M is ideal for this purpose.
 
HSH6
In this switching system two coils are connected in series at a time. All positions are free of hum when the magnetic polarity is NS-S-SN or SN-N-NS. Here a Megaswitch M is in use.
 
HS4
This switching system is for guitars wiht a Humbucker on the bridge and a single coil on the neck and allows both pickups to be switched in series which creates a lowder, fuller sound. Here, the Humbuckers can be split while the outer coil remains active. The inner coil is short-circuited. If a buzz-free sound is required in position 4, the magnetic polarity must be either NS-S or SN-N. The neck pickup has to be a symmetrical type, as in Figure 1 or Figure 3 in the introduction, i.e. the wire windings should not be connected to a metal cap. 
 
HS5
This switching system is for guitars with a Humbucker on the bridge and a single coil on the neck and allows both pickups to be switched in series, which creates a louder, fuller sound. Here, it is possible to split the Humbucker, while the inner coil remains active. The outer coil is short-circuited. The neck pickup has to be a symmetrical type such as in Figure 1 and 3 in the introduction, i.e the wire windings may not be connected to a metal cap. If a buzz-free sound is required in position 4, the magnetic polarity must be NS-N or SN-S.

SH4
This switching system is for guitars with a single coil on the bridge and a Humbucker on the neck. It allows both pickups to be switched in series which creates a louder, fuller tone. The Humbucker can be split while the outer coil remains active. The inner coil is short-circuited.
 
The Humbucker can be split while the outer coil remains active. The inner coil is short-circuited. The Megaswitch M is ideal for this purpose. If a buzz-free sound is required in position, the following magnetic polarity (from the bridge to the neck) is required: N-NS or S-SN.
 
SH5
This switching system is for guitars with a single coil on the bridge and a Humbucker on the neck. It allows both pickups to be switched in series which creates a louder, fuller tone. The Humbucker can be split while the inner coil remains active. The outer coil is short-circuited.
 
The Megaswitch M is ideal for this purpose. If a buzz-free sound is required in position 2, the following magnetic polarity is required: N-SN or S-NS.
 
SS3
This is a very versatile switching system for Telecaster-type guitars. The five-position switch produces the following combinations:
