True Bypass Pop with no instrument or power
Hey team. Quick question. If I get a severe switch pop from a pedal (green ringer clone) with no instrument attached to it. I tried pulling the power and I still get a pop when clicking the switch. Does this mean I am hearing a faulty switch/mechanical noise?
To clarify, the pedal is in my effects chain but I disconnected all power to it. I still get a loud pop when I cycle the switch from bypass to "on" (although in on mode there is no sound as the power is cut). Is it still possible this is a dc/voltage issue or mechanical switch noise/fault?
