Could you post a link to the 'premium switch'? Other than the fulltone 3PDT switches I cant find anything thats any different than the chinese blues.Even the 'CLIFF' switches look identical,they just have 'CLIFF' painted on em...for an extra $3.50 each! Correct me if I'm wrong cause I'd love to use a premium switch in the few pedals I build for myself.
Heck, I'd even trick out my Joyos if theres a significantly better switch out there.
BTW, I've never had a chinese 3PDT fail on me out of 30 or so.
