There are moments in pedal building when you just have to geek out. This, my dear friends, is one of those times.
Made in Japan in small batches, the Soft Click 3PDT Latched Foot Switch exceeds whatever expectations you have about a 3PDT switch. With a sturdy heft in hand (and weighing in at a full ounce!), this 3PDT is perfect for those who demand the absolute best parts for their builds. Many builders praise gold connections for the metal's superior connectivity and inability to rust or tarnish. Cup-bottomed posts allow precision soldering, you know, the kind NASA depends on to keep astronauts from exploding into flame balls.
And, oh my stars, this switch feels so buttery smooth to push. Demand has grown steadily for soft touch switches, and the quality of these premium Soft Click 3PDT Latched Foot Switches is far superior to the rest on the market. This switch is rated for an astounding 200,000 cycles.
Your community of pedal builders has not failed you in their quest for this out-of-this-world 3PDT, and neither will the switches themselves.
1.) This switch has a different thread compared to standard latching 3PDT stomp switches.
2.) This switch has a different footprint for the soldering cups compared to standard latching 3PDT stomp switches.

Recorded with a decent small diaphragm condenser mic thru an RME Fireface. No processing except for normalizing. You'll want to wear headphones for this.
