    Hey EBS users - is the Microbass II equipped with silent foot switches, or do they go "ka-chunk"?

    I'm doing the super quiet doubling gig that would require a box like the EBS, but the switching needs to be silent.

    Thanks guys!

    Not sure about the Microbass II specifically but every EBS pedal I've owned has had dead silent switching.

    Very quiet. No unwanted pops
  4. Do you mean acoustically or electronically?

    They do go clunk, but not as loudly as some switches.

    I have had the occasional electronic 'pop' from the microbass, but never from any other of my ebs pedals.

    Absolutely silent. Not your typical mechanical true-bypass switch.

    EBS pedals have a buffered bypass, rather than the "true" bypass with the clunky switch. So the switch is totally silent. (at least the one on my Multicomp is).
