How much does the EH Canyon affect the bypass sound?

    Though I’ve owned probably 30 different electro harmonix pedals over the years, I’ve always felt they have too pronounced of an effect on the guitar sound, whether thinning or compressed or just a tonal shift. I’m building a smaller pedalboard and like the demos of the canyon for delay flexibility. For those of you who’ve owned or own it, how much does it alter your natural tone? How does it play with other pedals? I’m thinking of a three pedal board, not like my monster rig. Thanks

    Nothing to my ears. There is a internal switch for buffer/TB in case you didn't know though.

    I didn't notice any difference with mine. Even with the tails switch on.

    Bump as I don't know if my Canyon is defective, but I experience a drastic difference in tone with this pedal in my chain. My guitar tone gets noticeably trebly and even harsh with the Canyon, particularly when I engage other pedals like dirt/fuzz (even when the Canyon is off).

    It's worse when I have the trails switch on. When trails are turned off, this stops.... Except then when I engage the Canyon, my tone with it on changes to being too bright.

    Am I the only one who experienced this?

    I’m thinking of buying one used and came here with the same question
