90's Vox wah.
My MXR Phase 90 script is off the board because of this.
Another mistake is putting too much load on a power supply. Someone could have 5 pedals on a daisy chain and it work perfectly fine, then swap one that draws 50ma for one that draws 200ma and think the pedal is to blame.
I’m not saying anyone here is guilty of this. Just saying, I’ve seen people ready to return pedals until realizing their mistake. Multiple times. We all make mistakes from time to time. Pedals get blamed all the time for something that can be attributed to another part of the rig or user error.
If you don't know the "secret setting," and mind you that phrase is singular for a reason...then in the wrong hands, your tone will quickly find its way cruising past MACS0647-JD, a galaxy roughly 13.5B light years from Earth.
My old '77 Big Muff V3 (with on/off switch). Seems to be a rams head circuit with the classic standard graphics. Bypassed is a total tone sucker. Didn't know for years!
As I said in my post, in this case it's the hardwire bypass you're hearing. Try to understand this.
Dunlop Rotovibe when off.... unbelievable tone loss, Im still wondering why they had not fixed it yet...
Like a lot of others, 90's Vox wah. But I loved it so much I paid to get it modded to true bypass
The original CE1 was not a tone enhancer when not in use.
I have only used the Boss DD5/6/7 and RC3, neither seemed to steal anything
TBH I kinda started this as a bit of a ‘fun’ thread...not a place to tell people they don’t understand stuff
This thread needs....
I had a big box, Deluxe Mistress with the power cord. When it was plugged in - regardless if it was on of off - it kinda sucked tone.
The Dream Mender I'm using now kinda sucks tone when it's on. It shaves off quite a bit of high-end. I think that's intentional, but it's kinda jaring at first. It will never win the award for "Delay Pedal that keeps your tone intact while on" award.
Ernie Ball VP JR Volume Pedal.
The original red flocked Foxx Clean Machine killed tone like no other. It also ate batteries like no other. It would take out a carbon zinc battery in one set. You had to replace multiple batts per night.
Miku. Plug your guitar into that sucker and you’ll wonder who stole It out from your hands.
Unfortunately, most guitarists don't understand even the most simple electronic basics, so they start blaming their gear. Seems kinda unfair to me. YMMV
For me it was a 90s Mister CryBaby I had that added lots even when turned off. But then, after modding it in getting rid of the volume pedal function I never used and making it true bypass I hooked it up to my normal rig and thought „f§€k, something isn‘t right here, doesn‘t sound good anymore“
