At the NAMM 2019 show, CircuitBread interviewed Hilary Ohlwein from Electroswitch. “As electrical engineers who are interested in electronics, we know that the right switch for your project makes a big difference. It was fascinating to hear the efforts that the Electroswitch team puts into making sure their buyers are happy and the places these switches have been,” wrote CircuitBread.
“Fender is using our pickup selector switches, Gibson using the JT toggles in their custom shot, Boeing using indicators all over the plane, under the plane. You’re going to see our toggles, used on night vision goggles. You know, we’re in the air, we’re in cars, we’re in your speakers,” says Hilary Ohlwein. “What ElectroSwitch is so cool about is that we’re a large company, but we’re intimate and personal enough with our customers to develop custom parts for pretty much everyone.”
“We’re hear for our blade switches. For the guitar players, this is how you’re gonna either combine your neck, bridge. It all depends on how you wire it. So, the lute, the airs, the guitar builders–they can wire these things, split coils, do whatever they want and get really unique sounds all using our same switch.”
