True Bypass Wah


Recommended Posts

  • Members

A lot of wahs have half-arsed bypass; in bypass mode the input jack is connected to the output directly, but the circuit is "hanging" on the signal line - the input to the wah PCB is connected to the input too.

That can cause loading effects on the pickups - they have to drive the amp and the wah pedal at the same time. That can lead to a loss of volume and particularly a loss of treble.

Bunging the wah after a buffered pedal can help prevent the losses.
