Smart-Bypass™ is our new relay-based true bypass switching system, featuring both classic and modern applications. The main advantages are its on-the-fly latching/momentary capabilities and fail-safe operation.
A click of the footswitch will latch the pedal on as normal, but holding it for 300 milliseconds or more will activate a momentary mode. This allows access a quick burst of a given effect, and will revert to bypass upon release.
This feature turns your pedal into a fun and powerful songwriting and/or improvisational tool! In the event of a power loss, your signal will automatically revert to bypass, ensuring signal always reaches its final destination. Our pedals come stock with access to the momentary mode, but if it gets in the way of your playing, it can be disengaged by an internal dip switch.
