Strummer Switches (GH3 & GH5 & Band Hero)

Guitar Hero Switch

****OUT OF STOCK****


In response to your requests we are happy to now bring you our latest replacement Strummer Switches designed for the following guitars:

  • Guitar Hero 3
  • Guitar Hero Metallica
  • Guitar Hero 5
  • Band Hero

These hard to find push switches are simple to replace and will fix all strumming problems with your guitar, whether your guitar has stopped strumming completely (or in just one direction) or it is frequently missing notes that you know you have hit.

These switches install in exactly the same way as our Guitar Hero World Tour Strummer Switches which you can see in the tutorial video below.

The Guitar Hero guitars come with 2 of these switches installed, one for up-strumming, and one for down-strumming. If your guitar has stopped working in only one direction you will only require one switch to repair the fault but we offer excellent deals on buying 2 or more switches to allow you to change both switches at the same time with these high quality replacements. The repair can be performed by someone with little or no soldering experience in under 10 minutes, and will have you back up and rocking again before you know. Compatible with a wide range of guitars (Guitar Hero World Tour Strummer Switches can be found here), highly responsive and reliable, and simple to fit, these switches will keep you rocking for years!

 Please note  The strummer repair kit is for one replacement strummer switch so if your guitar does not strum in either direction then you will require two kits. To order simply select the option on the dropdown list for two strummers.
