    Are they true bypass? Im looking at maybe getting the mxr blue box and bass octave. I need an octave to go before my fuzz factory and the mxr bass octave is a condender. Any other choices you suggest? I haven't tried out the boss oc-2 but i'd like to try it

    I dont think MXR pedals are true bypass but they are fairly easy to modify as opposed to Boss pedals which are very difficult to make true bypass if not impossible.

    I have a Phase90 and Microamp which both have been modded to be true bypass and they are really great pedals.

    how do you "mod" them to make them true bypass?

    As far as I know, its simply a matter of replacing the footswitch with a true bypass switch. Simple if you can use a soldering gun and have a wiring diagram.

    I havn't done this myself as I suck at soldering. But I have noticed that the MXR pedals tend to commonly have this mod done. I bought both of mine used and they both had been modded.
