I have been searching and searching for a small-footprint bypass loop that has EQ. The only option I have really seen is the Xotic X-blender, but I'm not so sure that just a treble and bass control will give me what I am looking for. This is another case of trying to "fix" a pedal that cuts more lows than I would like, but rather than "find something that doesn't" I want to add this bass back in because this is the sound. I have a Barge VFB-2, and while this works, blending the clean and effected signals doesn't always mesh the way I think it should to my ears. I have run the pedal in question (a Devi Soda Meiser <3) into a 4-band eq on my M9 and it sounds MASSIVE, but when I turn off the SM the signal gets wayyyy too boomy, hence my current quest. How hard would it be to add a bypass loop to a preexisting eq pedal (be it Boss, or BB, or MXR, etc) - just an out and back in before the signal gets processed by the eq? That way disengaged I get "clean" signal, and engaged I get loop > eq. It seems so basic to me (for us bass players anyway) that I can't believe there isn't anything like this out there already. Any suggestions,nudges in the right direction, or offers to build me such a device would be greatly appreciated.
