    The mod solution is to purchase a loop pedal. Keeley makes one for like $50-60 bucks.

    unfortunately, unless you re-house it, the phase 90 is not a great candidate for true bypassing because it involves cutting out a section of the circuit board, and i believe cutting traces and other weird stuff.

    the phase 90 does sound pretty bad in bypass, you're right. i think i might just re-house mine in a slightly bigger enclosure.

    We do the new custom shop 1974 handwired Phase-90 true bypass mods and sell them new with the mods too if you don't already have one. They sound just like the old script logo pedals, Dunlop did a great job on them.

    Thanks everyone I think I'm just going to rehouse it in a bigger enclosure, I really love this pedal.

    Does anyone have reccomendations for where to get parts? What size enclosure?

    Edit: This is going to be more work than I thought. Everything is mounted to the board: output/input jacks, power jack, switch, and led. :/

    You don't necessarily need to change the enclosure.

    I have an old script logo one. Not caring about re-sale, I changed the switch and true-bypass'd it. Also added an LED while I was at it. Works perfectly.

    I really dont hear anything wrong with the bypass on the Phase 90. Maybe beacuse its placed after my bad horsie wah which has a great buffer.
