  • Boss FB-2, possible to leave boost always off when feedback is disengaged?

    A helpful user on another site mentioned this:



    "if I have the effect bypassed and I then hold down the pedal, the feedback function kicks right in (at a speed set by the feedback knob). Once you release the pedal however, it reverts to the boost being on. You then have to hit the pedal again to bypass."



    Is there a way to modify this pedal so there's no need for the second tap to disengage the boost?

    It would be cool if it could be turned off.

        I don't own the pedal, but there's a boost level and two tone controls. It seems you should be able to get close to unity gain by adjusting the knobs to taste. YMMV.

            That's what Burgs recommended in the PGS demo, and it comes close to sounding transparent but still not fully there IMO.

                So far, all I can think of is the G-Labs true bypass wah pad, although it's expensive for a single solution (around $150 USD), and I'd have to deal with the extra surface area.



                Any other ideas?

                    You use a cable between your electric guitar and amp? Guess what?



                    Not transparent.



                    All those pesky resistors and capacitors actually living inside your electric guitar and the amplifier its connected to by that cable?



                    Not transparent.



                    Any other pedals and cables in your signal chain?



                    Not transparent.



                    I could go on. The species of wood, the pickups, pot values, string gauge, speakers, picks, operator caffeine intake, et cetera, et cetera.

                        I should've known my use of "transparent" would trigger a semantic dispute...



                        You're talking about all things essential to the signal path. Leaving a pedal always on with everything set to noon, setting yourself much further from transparent than without it (and noticeably so), is not what I consider the best approach.



                        Bump.
