The ESW5.0 True Bypass module is probably the best and most reliable alternative for the standard mechanical 3PDT switch for your guitar pedals.
Since the ESW5.0 True Bypass module uses a sealed signal relay, the life expectancy is much higher then a standard 3PDT switch. It can also replace the existing 3PDT switch in a pedal.
The ESW5.0 module has a built-in LED connection. The LED can be mounted directly on the module's PCB or connected by wires, no LED resistor is needed.
Since the ESW5.0 module is already populated with the LED resistor on board, all you need to do is connect the LED directly to the module, no extra resistors are needed.
All the connections are clearly marked on the PCB itself, so it is very easy to install.
The ESW5.0 module designed to be in bypass mode at the absence of power, so even if you don't power the pedal, or the power is lost, the signal will pass through.
