What about the circuit other than the bypass, say 80s vs. a new one? I have mine in a looper switcher...bypass type is a non-issue.According to Stinkfoot, post early 2004 Maxon SD-9 reissues feature true bypass; earlier units did not, instead utilizing a bypass system known as hardwire bypass although referred to as true bypass by Maxon.
The Ibanez SD9 of course featured their buffered bypass Q-1 switching system.
I have not seen that. Boss has included several of our mods in their pedals (DS1, TR2) but I have not seen Maxon or Ibanez do that.Heya Mike,
did you audition the new Ibanez SD9m ('mod' pedal, possibly inspired by your AM-modded version?) as well?
So did Mike actually say the Ibanez SD9M is True Bypass? I cant find anything reliable about whether it is or not.It is true bypass. I sent an email to analog mike with pics of the board but he said its very different from the maxon so he won't be able to work on it.
