treu bypass overdrive

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by MCBTunes, Dec 30, 2005.

  1. I'm looking for pedals that are true bypass, so my tone isnt changed when the pedal is off, and under a hundred bucks. I want an overdrive not a fuzz, so it cancels the muffs.

    Another question I've got is,I have an effects loop, so do I even need true bypass, or will my tone still be effected when the pedal is turned off.

    edit: I would like it to be a bass pedal, or atleast one that is known to not cut out the low frequencies.
  2. does the effect loop you are talkin' about is on your amp? if so, it depends if it's in parallell or in series.
  3. yeah, it's on an older eden head
  4. So, if it is running in parrallelle, it won't affect your tone but if it's in series...

    Normally, you don't put stomp box in an effect loop. Rack effects are usually in the effect loop.

    for an extra $80, think about the Fulltone Bassdrive. It might be what you are looking for AND true bypass. Just got mine and I love it....
