    Hi fellow Bass players,

    Could any of you tell me if the MXR M-132 Super Comp, actually has True Bypass from purchase?

    I'm looking forward to hear your words of wisdom.

    Short and quick reply ;)

    Should I be worried or doesn't it suck tone big time?

    You know, I run so many effects that I honestly can't tell you if it sucks tone. But it does compression well. It's a bit noisy at extreme compression settings (Max sensitivity. Like what gui****s may use I guess). Some folks like the Dyna Comp better. I chose the Super because I can control the attack speed.

    Far as I know most if not all mxr pedals use a passive bypass system that is kinda similar to true bypass but not quite, wouldn't worry about it, it's only losing tone if you can hear it.

    It's buffered, and very well I might add. Very transparent when bypassed as are all MXR and Dunlop pedals.
