The Seimitsu LS-40-01 joystick is very similar to the LS-40. This model of the joystick has its microswitches soldered to a PCB and connects via a 5-pin cable.

The LS-40-01 joystick comes with a flat SE mounting plate, dust cover, shaft cover, LB-35 handle and a 2, 4 & 8 way adjustable gate.

    Shmups Delight!

    Posted by Chris on 21st Jun 2020

    Mounted this in a Mayflash MF002 by removing the acrylic plexiglass top and screwing into the metal plate to give the correct height. Definitely worth the little extra effort as I beat my all-time high score on Donpachi on the second attempt! Cannot go wrong with a Seimitsu LS-40-01 and some Seimitsu PS-14-G buttons. Thank you Arcade World UK for providing such an excellent service. . . and improving my precision!

    Bought two of these to replace the stock sticks on my Pandora’s Box. What a difference! Great all round stick for fighters and shmups.

    Amazing Stick

    Posted by Özcan Karabiyik on 25th Dec 2017

    I tried 3 Sticks, Sanwa JFL default, 2lb, 4lb, KOWAL Acutator,
    the Seimitsu LS-32 also, but the best is Seimitsu LS-40-01 without a doubt..

    Great throw range, no pivot popping issue like the LS-32. The trow range feels even better than my Sanwa JFL with KOWAL 1mm oversize actuator.

    Like always fast delivery, again guys from Germany.. Order here, you are much saver! Thx Arcadeworlduk !

    Better than sanwa JLF

    Posted by Unknown on 17th Jun 2017

    I just mounted this stick on my Qanba Q4RAF and the difference is huge. This stick is so much more responsive than the sanwa JLF. It fits perfectly for fighting games (tested on SF5, all moves come out easily). If you plan to mount it on a Qanba Q4RAF, you will need to remove the mounting plate, save the screws and fix the stick directly on the Q4RAF panel. See this page for more information:

    Best all-round stick

    Posted by Unknown on 13th Apr 2017

    The ls 40 to me is the ultimate all round stick. It has a smooth pivot, tight action. Works great for fighters shmups alike.

    Super Joystick für Beat em ups und alles Andere!

    Posted by Andreas Pohler on 3rd Sep 2016

    Glücklicherweise gab es hier bei Arcade World UK noch Seimitsu LS-40 Joysticks, denn ich wollte genau dieses Modell, da diese auch in vielen SNK Arcadecabinets im Einsatz waren.
    Da ich vor kurzem eine Picade gekauft hatte, wollte ich natürlich bessere Teile verwenden als den/die mitgelieferten Zippyy Joystick und no Name Buttons.
    Da es zur Zeit der Bestellung allerdings nur den LS 40-01 gab, haben diesen mitsamt Kabel und SE Mounting Plate bestellt.
    Passt total super und mit dem Kabel habe ich sogar noch etwas Zeit bei der Verdrahtung der Kontakte gespart, da die Masse Anschlüsse alle schon über die Platine zusammengeschlossen sind.

    Insgesamt kann man diesen Joystick nur empfehlen, hat kurze Wege und wenig Wiederstand. Alle Special Moves gehen damit leicht von der Hand.
    Ich werde mir auf jeden Fall Weitere bestellen.

    Great stick and fantastic price

    Posted by Emanuele on 6th Apr 2016

    This stick feels very nice, quite tight, smooth and short throw, I have not tried other sticks yet but I'm really liking it and it's the best price I've found in Europe even when buying it with all the options.

    short engage

    Posted by seqo on 8th May 2013

    If you want a smaller engage dont hesitate, LS40 is one of the sticks on the market, less deadzone then JLF, a great stick for shumps and fighters too!
