    Sanwa latest and highly anticipated addtion to their hugely popular arcade button lineup comes in the form of 30mm translucent buttons! Available in 6 colors, these still feature the feather-sensitive, competition-ready SW-68 microswitch and look fantastic in a 6 or 8 button setup.

    Adding Artwork to Sanwa OBSC-30

    While not an exact tutorial for Sanwa OBSC buttons, this helpful tutorial for Seimitsu PS-14 G buttons will clarify some of the steps needed to install custom artwork into a Sanwa clear plunger.  (Tip suggested by SRK's Maximiliano)

    Artwork Diameter

    Actual diameter for artwork is 20.7mm (thanks to jPenguin of 801 Mods)

    24 vs 30mm

    When processing orders, a frequent mistake we found among new players is choosing the wrong size for action buttons, such as punch and kick.

    Within the fighting game genre, Japanese arcade buttons commonly consist of two diameter sizes: 24 millimeter and 30 milllimeter (mm). In most configurations, 30mm represents your action button.  These are front facing, appearing most prominent on your Fightstick control panel.  Option button, such as "Start", "Select", or more recently "Option", "Touch", or "Share" are usually 24mm.

    UPDATE: Owners of Neo Geo AES Joysticks will need 24mm pushbuttons instead of 30mm (Thanks SRK's DEZALB)

    Below is a visual representation of a common Fightstick control panel.  Throughout this article, we will mark 24mm in green, and 30mm in Orange.

    Checking the Proper Size

    button-30mm.pngAnother way that players can misinterpret the pushbutton size is by measuring the pushbutton plunger.  Have a look at the diagram at right.

    The plunger - the part that you press down to represent an input - is 25mm or a bit smaller in most 30mm pushbuttons.  Often this leads to the conclusion that one needs a 24mm button and not 30mm.

    Similarly measuring the button rim can lead to confusion, as it is intentionally larger than the button hole it is placed in.  You don't want to use these measurements.  Instead, review the button housing diameter, or the hole the button will be placed in.  You can do this with a caliper - a digital caliper is often quite helpful for this and other arcade-related projects.

    Control Panel Configuration

    Most Fightsticks from MadCatz, Hori, Qanba, and similar will use these two sizes.  How the buttons are used will depend on the model joystick that you own. Over time, we'll provide example configurations for specific popular Fightstick models and arcade cabinets using the color key for 24mm (green) and 30mm (orange).  We'll also expand the key for future models if another size is introduced, and we offer for sale.

    1. Nice product, fast delivery.

      Nice product, fast delivery. on Oct 28th 2017

    2. Great look!

      The buttons look fantastic, I hadn't known that the plungers were 2 pieces when I bought them. I found out later this is for art over lays, but I had planned on replacing my plungers with solid ones anyways so it's all good! on Jan 25th 2017

    3. Looks good, feels good

      I use 6 of these on my 8 button fightstick, and they look great with white LEDs. The photo is quite accurate to what the color is in person. My only complaint is the 2 clips on the sides are very fragile. You are likely to break one every time you insert/remove the button. This is more of a Sanwa button issue than something inherent to this specific color. Other than that, great product. on Oct 19th 2016

    4. Beautiful but delicate.

      I love the look of these buttons they look great on my fightstick but they are way to delicate while I was inserting them in my fightstick the snaps broke on 3 of them. I am really disappointed by this but the buttons stay snug for the time being so its not the worst case. If replacement are a thing I would really appreciate it, if not its no big deal. on Oct 14th 2016

    5. Excellent Classic Buttons

      I bought these to replace the stock buttons on the Hori Real Arcade Pro 4 Kai and they are fantastic! Very easy to install and provide the classic arcade feel that I grew up using! A must add to any arcade stick due to their high quality and durability. on Aug 12th 2016

    6. Awesome buttons

      I absolutely love these buttons they feel great and look awesome just be careful when installing/removing these buttons as the clips on the side can be a little sensitive at times. on May 20th 2016

    7. Quality you'd expect, photo fairly accurate

      The other review on here states that the photo is misleading, but I have to disagree. I was a bit worried about this when ordering but I decided to give it a try and I feel the color in the photo is pretty close (more views would be nice though). on Apr 4th 2016

    8. Great but the photo was misleading

      As the headline suggests, the plunger's color is a white cap while the plunger's transparency is "smoke" making the actual plunger's color appear light-grey. I was hoping more of a darker shade of grey but because the photo is only of one side so it was hard to judge. Overall I just wanted to share my opinion on this. on Oct 11th 2015

    9. Simple and efective

      Only reason I cant give this product five stars is because it's no more responsive than the default buttons on my Mad Catz TE2. Performance wise, it's identical to the standard TE2 buttons. Very simple to switch out even with the LED PCB already installed. Looks great and performs just fine. on Aug 4th 2015
