    You can use a true bypass switcher where you can switch between your effects loop and another completely uncolored (true bypass) line that goes straight to your amp.

    I definitely recommend Looopers but I have to say that there's still some interaction with an effect if that effect is on and the loop is kicked out. I have to go w/ what my ears tell me.

    If the effect is off and the loop is kicked out then it sounds totally out of the signal path.
