those ones you can buy from Mouser, http://www.mouser.com. They are cheap,
so you can buy a whole bag of them. :-)

"Interruptor"  - I like that. ;-)

All it needs is a momentary switch, there are lots to choose from. You
should be able to find lots of switch companies on yahoo or wherever that
sell industrial switches. They all have different feels under your feet, so
you will probably try a few before you find one you like. Installing it in
the pedal is easy.

(Despite the "cheapness" of the ones used in production in that pedal, I
always liked the feel of them. I find it pretty easy to tap accurately. A
lot of those sturdy, metal switches tend to be much stiffer and harder to
press, so it isn't so easy to tap the loops accurately.)
