<19mm Light-touch Buttons
« on: July 15, 2012, 04:40:27 pm »
Forgive any inadvertent noobness - I'm not an arcade guy, but you guys are the Internet-wide experts at buttons :)

I'm making an electronic musical instrument (accordion), and have a specialized button need:

  • Really low activation force - less than 30grams (0.3N), with low/no "click" (auditory or tactile) at the end
  • Small - I need button-centre to button-centre to be around 19mm (3/4") or less
  • High endurance
  • Less than three dollars would be wonderful (I need about a million of them)

Ultimarc's GoldLeafs would be perfect, if it weren't for them being too large.

The best idea I have right now is getting Sanwa SDM-18's and replacing the springs with something much lighter.

Does anyone have a better idea?
