Look into your collection of pedals for one that uses mechanical switching - it doesn't have to be true bypass, but it does have to use a mechanical switch. An MXR, Marshall, etc. pedal will work - BOSS, Ibanez, etc. will not. Hook up the pedal as the first effect in your chain, and remove the battery, and don't plug it in either. Instant mute!
Can't take credit for it, I read somewhere one of the Ramones did that. You can also use a BOSS pedal, or a pedal that uses electronic switching, provided the pedal has a LEVEL/VOLUME control. Plug the pedal in, and just turn the LEVEL/VOLUME all the way down. Click ON, mute, click off, sound.Originally posted by screamingdaisy
Good one....I never thought of that....and assuming you have an extra pedal lying around it'd be cheap too.
i had thought of that john,but........................does a made for the job non tone sucking mute pedal actually exist ?Originally posted by John Phillips
If you already have a TU-2, you don't need anything else at all. Just turn it on to mute. Doesn't matter if you're tuning or not.
Do you feel that your TU-2 sucks tone or are you just irritated that it's a buffered pedal?Originally posted by Rock Fella
