Tap Tempo Pedal Variations

Soft Touch Tap Tempo 

The Saturnworks soft touch tap tempo allows you to set delay rates for Boss pedals. The soft touch switch is heavy duty and clickless.

The normally closed (NC) version works for all Boss devices, including the DD-5, DD-7, DD-20, RC-2, and RC-3, or any pedal that requires a normally closed (NC) tap tempo.

The normally open version works for any device that requires a normally open (NO) tap tempo. Most brands other than Boss use the normally open standard.

Arcade Tap Tempo

A normally open tap tempo with an arcade switch. Perfect for setting a tap tempo by hand. Please note: The arcade switch only comes in a normally open configuration.

Micro Soft Touch Tap Tempo

The Saturnworks micro soft touch tap tempo is the same solid tap tempo as the standard soft touch tap tempo, but squeezed into the smallest package possible, a tiny 2” x 2” cast aluminum enclosure. It is available with either a normally closed (NC) switch for Boss devices, a normally open (NO) switch, for most brands other than Boss, and a TC Electronics variation that works with TC Electronics devices. The TC model must be connected with a TRS patch cable, available here.

Pro Tap Tempo

Saturnworks pro tap tempos feature a pro grade switch, which is rated for triple the durability of standard switches, and comes in several varieties.

Both the soft touch and pro switches are heavy-duty switches. They key difference is that the soft touch switch does not have a click, while the pro switch has a light click.

The normally closed (NC) version works for all Boss devices, including the DD-5, DD-7, DD-20, RC-2, and RC-3, or any pedal that requires a normally closed (NC) tap tempo.

The normally open version works for any device that requires a normally open (NO) tap tempo. Most brands other than Boss use the normally open standard.

The pro tap tempo with reversible polarity features a toggle that switches between normally open and normally closed. This versatility means that you can use it with virtually any tap tempo compatible device. The reversible polarity model is available in either compact or micro sizes.

The Strymon version allows you to set the delay rate for compatible Strymon devices. Strymon uses a non-standard TRS configuration and is not compatible with standard tap tempo pedals. The Strymon configuration requires a TRS (stereo) patch cable in order to function properly. We have TRS cables available here.

Pro Dual Tap Tempo

The pro dual tap tempo lets you synch two devices with a single switch. It is available with both jacks being wired as normally closed (NC), both wired as normally open (NO), or one of each (NC+NO).

The pro dual tap tempo is also available in reversible a polarity model. The reversible polarity version allows you to independently set the polarity of each jack as either normally open (NO) or normally closed (NC).

Pro Double with Reversible Polarity Tap Tempo

The pro double tap tempo with reversible polarity saves space by combining two separate tap tempo circuits in one compact enclosure. Both tap tempo circuits feature a polarity switch that can be set to normally open (NO) or normally closed (NC) to work with a  wide variety of devices. This pedal can also be set up with one or both of the jacks to work with the Strymon TRS configuration. Please contact us for details.

Double with TRS Jack

This pedal works like the Boss FS-6 in that it combines two tap tempo switches in one pedal and is connected with a single TRS (stereo) patch cable.  This version is available with either pro or soft touch momentary switches. By default it comes wired as normally closed, for use with Boss devices. But like the other pro tap tempos it can also be wired as normally open.

    Just ordered this tap tempo pedal, in micro size, for my Boss DD7. The pedal works nicely, the build quality is very satisfying and the custom artworks looks great (Saturn is the coolest planet anyway!). Way better feeling as with my former FS5U and its plastic knob.

    Its narrow size allowed me to add a second micro-sized pedal (expression TRS for my boss RV-7, great too!) on my board instead of a single FS5U! I really had to win space to add several pedals on my Gator board, and these little pedals did the job!

    Thanks, Bryan! I’ll come again for sure 😉

    Micro Soft Touch – Normally Closed. Small footprint, reliable and accurate, and durable. Will be ordering one of the dual tap tempos when I add my dd5 to my board. 🙂

    An amazing little guy! It has been a great addition to my board. I got the Micro Soft Touch, Normally Closed version to use on my DD-20. It is very responsive built very sturdy. I’ve used it as both a tap tempo and my preset selector and it has not failed me and I don’t anticipate it doing so.
    If you’re considering this…in the words of Nike, “Just Do it.”
    Seriously, it is not gonna break the bank and it will make your time on stage easier for way cheaper than anything else someone might sell you.
