I buy a lot of guitar parts and I usually stick with the name brands with a few exceptions. When I come across products of exceptional quality that can save dollars, I feel like I should share it. Today, I’m going to share a great deal on mini toggles. Which can be expensive. One has to be very careful buying mini toggles from China because they are most often crap (can I say that?). Anyway, I wanted to share a AliExpress vendor that sells MTS switches that rival the quality of Carling’s. And they always get to me within 10 days. The things look, feel and throw just like Carling’s. Just search for ETERNALFAR switches on Ali. (ONLY LOOK AT THE RED SWITCHES). It has almost every mini toggle conceivable for guitar (no on-on-on’s). For example, a Carling Clone On-Off-On DPDT red mini toggle cost me $3.71 and that includes shipping. A real Carling costs $7.72 (cheapest) on EBay. I can’t tell the difference and sat in bed one night and “toggled” one 1500 times. (No laughing) No problems.
Now remember, the dark blue ones are crap.
In closure, I know we all typically stick with name brands, but these switches (have I mentioned they’re red) get a positive Cindi review😺. And “no,” Cindi does not get a “kickback” on every switch (I wish 😁).
I’ve been working with switches today and I just thought I’d share it. For those of you that want to save money with a new build or a harness renovation, I think you’ll love these switches.
