    Just curious, if I wanted to build a tap tempo pedal that had one switch that went to two tap outputs would I need to use a momentary DPDT or would one SPST switch connected to both jacks work fine?
    Thanks guys,

    You need a two-pole (DP) switch, one pole for each pedal. DPST might do you, but it depends oin the specific pedals. IIRC, Boss DD- pedals want a normall closed contact that opens when you tap.l Other brands might want normally open.

    I ended up buying a used TC Nova Delay rather than getting into this can o' worms.
