Do anyone have experience with silenced arcade buttons. Want to replace the buttons in my cab + arcade sticks with more silent and familyfriendly buttons for nighttime playing.

I modded my VSHG with a silenced sanwa stick and "silent" buttons, but honestly.. the buttons sounds less, but still quite a lot.
The silent stick is amazing though. Plays well and is very silent!

Components used:
JLF-TPRG-8AYT-SK (stick)
OBSFS-30 (buttons)

Would like it to be even quiter if possible (to play late at night while wife+child sleeps).

Things left to try:
- These foam inserts in other buttons:

- These things (HBFS30-G2)?

Anyone else have experience with silent options for buttons?

Even with silent buttons and sticks the cab will still make a lot of sound
you would have to put acoustic foam in the control panel to help silence it

or just wear some headphones so you don't hear the wife complaining!! :lol:

Probably true for the cab. The Arcade Stick should be doable though.
