Why isn't True Bypass an industry standard?

I mean with the amount of units these company's make I'm sure the cost wouldn't be that much more to make them this way? What's the deal?
standin above the crowd
he had a voice that was strong and loud and
i swallowed his facade cos i'm so
eager to identify with
someone above the crowd
someone who seemed to feel the same
someone prepared to lead the way

    i have no idea.

    voodoo lab, which claims true bypass, isn't. it's a DPDT mounted to the circuit board. same with MXR (which doesn't claim TB). boss's FET switching is pretty good though it's not TB either.

    at least with electro harmonix pedals, the switch isn't on the board so you can easily put a 3PDT in it.

    someday, i'm just going to make a multi-switch bypass panel.

    My Girlfriend said to me..."How many guitars do you need?" and I replied...."How many pairs of shoes do you need?" She got really quiet.
