This is what I am currently using http://www.musiciansfriend.com/ampli...x-effects-loop
Radial Engineering BigShot EFX Effects Loop
It's driving me crazy. At times, it will not put out any sound even though the rest of my equipment works just fine when I take this out of the loop. I will keep hitting the switches and NOTHING happens. I just bought this a few months ago too - I replaced the last one which ended up dying on me at the gig. I like Radial, but this particular pedal is not working for me. So, I would like to replace this pedal with something nearly identical and very close to the $80 price range. I will spend a little bit more if it is worth it.
True-Bypass for sure or some sort of circuitry that will NOT mess with my original tone. I am also looking for something that is relatively easy to buy. My initial searches keep leading me to websites that do not exist anymore and products which are TOO complex for my uses. Simpler is better here.
I am using this pedal to swap between my distortion/blend pedal loop, my clean tone, and a tuner/mute loop.
Thank you for your help. Merry Christmas
