Under: Guitar Gear. One solution could is to try and simplify your rig. Another is to group pedals in a true bypass looper.
After I decided to go all "true-bypass" with my setup, I checked out the different ways to do so. The first way would be to convert all stompboxes to true bypass. On some of them like the EH stuff it is not a big thing to do and the Boutique-stuff is true bypass anyway but I also use some "normal", non-boutique stompboxes from Boss, Ibanez, Danelectro and Nobels and converting them is a lot of hassle and fumbling.
High-quality true-bypass strip loop control for your effects pedals. Not everyone needs a fully programmable one-touch switching system, however we all want to sound better. There comes a point where using multiple effects pedals chained together can introduce issues, including signal loss and tone-suck. QuarterMaster puts each of your pedals in its own separate true-bypass loop so it stays out of your signal path when you're not using it.
For the total tone purist, true bypass loop strips are the only way to go. Now you can go there in style with the Vein-Tap. A true bypass looper can do this all with one footswitch.
Musicians of all levels have a tendency to outgrow their pedalboards. This can lead to a number problems like cable management, pedal chain priority, and the obnoxious need to hop around end-to-end of your board to dial-in the right set of stomps. One solution to tame the constant pedal tap dancing beast lies in a new wave of compact devices which bypass your pedals in and out of the signal chain from a centralized location.
Built with the toughest parts available. Complimented with the highest quality solder and wire. Loop Switchers have chosen the most practical and rugged enclosures to ensure each pedal can outlast any other on the market.
See below Use as a simple interface for activating back row effects on the front row of your pedalboard. Add true bypass cap AB ility to any effect and eliminate tone-sucking effects from your signal path. Chain 1 or more effects per loop. Leave the effect "on" at all times but turn it on and off via the loop -Master switch.
Over the weekend I found myself working on a fun project. I wanted this for several reasons. There are lots of loop strips out there, but I wanted to see if I could build one. It was somewhat challenging to understand how the 3PDT switches work in relationship to the signal paths, and there is a lot of soldering involved, but overall, it was a easy project.
