I looked through the threads that mentioned the ME-50B.. then I got lazy, and decided to just ask. It appears that the ME-50B does not have a true bypass. Is that correct??. If it does not have a true bypass, then how much if any of life does it suck out of your tone. I love my current setup with my Benavente/Read Purity/Schroeder. I want to be able to have the effects at my command, but also want to be able to have my current tone at my feet as well???
