Single footswitch enabled multiple effects
If you have several effect pedals on your pedal board, you know how difficult it is to switch them on and off when you want to change your sound. For example, you want to switch to a rockabilly sound with slap back delay, tremolo and light overdrive. Put those three pedals into the effects loop and make sure they are enabled. Instead of pressing three footswitches to get your sound, you press just one. You can concentrate on your performance not on your footwork. Make sure each pedal in the loop is in the on position, has power and the controls are set to the sound you want.
Make Classic Effect Pedals True Bypass
Most classic effect pedals from the 60’s through the ‘80’s (Wah wahs, Fuzztones, Phasers, etc.) don’t have true bypass. This means the input of the effect is connected to the signal path even when the effect is switched off, causing your tone to degrade. Put the classic effect in one of the loops of the true bypass Dual Loop and use it to switch the classic pedal in or out of the signal path.
