Found a Fulltone OCD in a pawn shop cheap, but this switch is broken. Does anyone know of a source for just one?

I would say go to Mouser.com and narrow your search appropriately, and then start looking at data sheets.

You have the switch in hand, so you can measure the physical dimensions, lead spacing, etc. and find an exact replacement.

absolutely. But shipping will probably be more than the part itself, so it might be good to look around and see what else you might need... a roll of solder? some pots? resistors? caps? etc.

Another alternative is to find a manufacturer and part number using their collection of data sheets, and then google that exact part number to see if you can find it from a source like eBay, Small Bear electronics, etc.

Aubrey,

You may try Fulltone.

http://www.fulltone.com/pedals/accessories

They do not show it there, but maybe they will sell one.

The switch, you can see on the logo, is made by RS components. The part number looks to be 4807B

Also check http://www.bgmicro.com. They have a lot of surplus electronics pieces and parts and are very inexpensive.
