    Hi...


    The title says it, do you use a "true bypass strip" from pedalboards.com?

    - If so, tell me all about it. :smug:

    I'm going to move this to "Effects". You'll probably get more responses over here.

    ive never used one but i do know this much...its a strip that is more or less a bunch of FX loops. you plug yoru pedals into the strip and your pedals become "true bypass". which is to say they are true bypass until activated. when you activate the loop for your pedal then the pedal is no longer bypassed. when you switch it off it is bypassed.

    That's the same concept as those "Loooper" pedals, right?

    yea essentially. and for people liek myself who have their pedals rackmounted and use a switching system, the foot controls are the same way or at least mine is. check it out (www.voodoolab.com) but yea the looper pedals are the same way.

    I used one for about a year. Downright excellent. Great build quality, true bypass, like a tank. Mine had 4 loops, each with its own switch. I ran each of my 4 effects through it, leaving them on, then using the loop switch to activate them. Well worth the money, and they have great resale value, I got nearly all the money back on mine when I sold it on Ebay.

    I now use a 2 loop pedal, since most of my effects are true bypass and I want to shrink the size of my board.
