Where to buy "Genuine" SANWA buttons

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a place to get SANWA buttons and joysticks? I'm reluctant trusting these eBay sellers, and the Amazon ones are a little better but still...

Is there a way to tell genuine ones over knock-offs.?

haha I bought the same thing, and I love how they light up.... but for the life of me it was killing me that I couldn't easily play PC games with it (MKX, DOA5, SF5, InJustice) that it wants to see an xInput control. I could not get xPadder or x360ce to work well, so I bought a xInput control and rewired the it so it would work with arcade buttons. Long(er) story short I couldn't figure out how to wire in the buttons to light up and work with the xInput controller so Im going to save those for another project and thought I'd buy Sanwa buttons for my DIY xInput arcade stick.

yeah I don't have that much horse power in my machine just used a old PC I had lying around so no desire to play PC games on it. Funny I like mine because they are a gamepad and you actually need them to be a keyboard for your purpose.

focusattack.com is also a great place, that is where I get most of my Sanwa stuff. Though the stick itself is a little cheaper on Amazon.

I've bought parts from paradisearcadeshop before (replaced the joysticks and buttons in my X-Arcade stick) and they were fine. The only issue I had is that I currently live in Australia so had to use an additional postal service to get them shipped to the AU because PAS don't post outside of USA (so you end up posting to a repost depot inside USA which then forwards to you wherever. Costs a little more but I couldn't find any other options to get the parts I wanted).
