    Not sure if this sounds like a switch problem or a input/output jack problem.

    When the pedal is on it works as it should, but when bypassed the the sound is VERY faint - kind of has a transistor radio sound to it. Sometimes the bypass functions normally, but that's maybe 1 out of 20 times.

    I've tried doing a search on TGP, but got no where.

    I'll probably have to wind up sending it back to the manufacturer (it's a Barber pedal, so it should be taken care of), but if it's simpler maybe I have someone locally who can do it for me.

    Almost certainly the switch, or the connection to the switch

    It's probably the switch, since the wiring/soldering looks good. Guess it's gotta go back to Dave.
