    This is kind of an odd one but:

    Is the preset recalled by a Strymon Favorite Switch stored in the Favorite Switch, or the pedal? I would think the momentary switch recalls the preset saved in the pedal but - the reason I ask is for using the same favorite switch with multiple Strymon units (moving it between pedalboards on the fly)

    stored in the pedal...you can move the switch all you like.

    The "Favorite switch" is a $2 jack, a $4 SPDT and like a $40 enclosure.
    So no active circuit involved.

    Not true - there's is a chip and a circuit board inside.

    I'm talking about the Strymon favorite switch - it has circuitry in it. I don't believe it stores any information - but it's there.

    the old favorite switch, the one in the bigger housing, was no more than a switch, the new favorite switch, is the tap favorite, the circuit is there with a jumper to allow you to select between the switch running in favorite mode, or in tap mode, the circuitry is because strymon likes TRS tap tempo input, not TS, so theres some stuff going on there to convert to a TRS signal, as well as some sort of relay for storing the state of the footswitch in favorite mode.

    I figured as much - thanks for confirming everyone. Was just paranoid about possible wiping out a favorite if I hooked it up to another unit and stored something. It seemed unlikely it would work that way but - also, easy enough to throw out to TGP universe and get a quick response to ease my fears.
