True Bypass FX Loop with Volume Control

Back to the Shop <

Simple, rugged & pure
true bypass loop box

These true bypass boxes offer a 100% wholly and truly bypass signal for your pedals. Easily add them into your rig with no loss of tone.

Connect any other pedals into this pedal's effects loop and control them all with one footswitch - you can also adjust the volume of them all too. It uses a heavy duty 3PDT on/off switch which also powers the white LED indicator.

There's plenty of other uses for it too so get creative and "think outside the box"!

The volume control is completely passive so can only cut signal - not boost

My bypass looper is compact - the same size as the usual MXR casing (112 x 60 x 31mm). It really maximises the space it uses with plenty of room between the switches.

Plugging It In

Here's a couple of combinations I thought of. It's very versatile so there are many more combinations available for you to invent.

Think outside the box!

Simple and classic for maximum tone. You leave your pedals on all the time and let the True Bypass box do all the work

Solo boost mode

Subtle use of the overdrive pedal. Turn on the chorus pedal, turn on the overdrive pedal, drop the level on the effects loop with the volume control. When the effects loop is on the guitar signal runs through the "RXM" chorus pedal and then into the over drive pedal - BUT - it's been turned down. The lower level which is fed into the overdrive pedal results in a cleaner sound. Turn the effects loop off and you have a clear path to the overdrive pedal at full volume for a rip-roaring Solo sound!

As you can see it's a bit of an allrounder. I previously plugged all my pedals in 1 long chain and suffered the tone loss and the constant tap-dance whilst playing... No more!
