Before Seimitsu introduced the LS-58 series of translucent color joysticks, there was the solidly-built LS-56. This joystick is noticably smaller than the LS-32 or LS-40, enabling it to fit inside smaller joystick configurations, such as a Madcatz TE. The stiffer spring makes it excellent for those who prefer it to the softer looser spring in a Sanwa JLF, or LS-58.
The LS-56 has the following characteristics according to slagcoin:
- Medium throw distance
- Medium engage distance
- Has a heavy tension spring in comparison to Sanwa JLF
- Comes with square gate by default but can be fitted with an octagonal gate.
- High neutral and engage precision.
Compatble with Seimtsu LB-35 balltops, LB-39 bubbletops, color shaft and dustwasher sets
You can find plenty of color customization options for the LS-56. Now available are Seimitsu solid and translucent color shaft and dustwasher sets, plus solid color LB-35 bubbletops, and translucent LB-39 bubbletops. Use these to swap the default black up to 7 solid color and 10 translucent colors accessories.
Bundle with LS-56 octogonal gate!
The Seimitsu LS 56 Octagonal Restrictor Plate is compatible with the LS-58, allowing you to get smooth 8-way movement similar to the Sanwa GTY.
5-Pin harness included. Flat MS Plate installed. VF, P=40 Flat and SS Plates Available
The Seimitsu LS-56-01 joystick comes with a 5-pin PCB harness, plus flat MS plate, which can install on MadCatz TE. We also carry the Seimitsu VF Plate, which is often used in Hori joystick configurations, plus the flat and SS P=40 plate. The P=40 is considered one of Seimitsu's most versatile plates. The P-40 plate mounts on practically any "universal" mounting spot (HRAP 3 SA/SE or HRAP V3/VX SA) as well as seemingly "JLF-only" HRAP 3's and licensed HRAP's like the Arcana Heart 2 joystick (Thanks to SRK's GeorgeC for the explanation).
LS-56-01 says "LS-33" on PCB, but is not LS-33. (more info)
