    Wondering if anyone else has experienced this. When I turn on my amp, the Low Blow automatically comes on by default; the pedal is definitely off after playing or practicing. I find this strange, and a little inconvenient. Anyone have the same experience with this pedal?

    When you turn on your amp or when the pedal is powered?

    A lot of those relay bypass designs are activated by a momentary switch and are set to either power on in bypass or power on active. Check with the builder to see if their is a setting or mod so the pedal can be powered up in a bypass mode.

    I have a few pedals that do this and yes it's annoying. But it's pretty routine now to stomp through my pedals to turn on/off all of them.

    When the pedal is powered. Everything is connected to a Furman Power Conditioner.
