Guitar pedal bypass
June 26, 2020 - 3:29pm

Hi to everybody,

it's my first post and I hope it is in the right section. I would like to ask help for a problem involving a guitar distortion pedal switch, I would like to have a bypass that gives as ouptput the same as input. The same thing as having two switches (one at the beginning and one at the end as in the lower drawing) but with only one. I think this could be done with a MOS but I don't know how. WhatsApp Image 2020-06-26 at 11.54.17.jpeg

Are you asking the same bypass circuit used in Boss pedals?

In boss pedals, JFET switching is used or you could use mechanical switches. What is your planning?
