5 from 5 Excellent kit, recommended !

Ive installed it in a BOSS SD-1 to get it true bypass, and thats a real breeze.
Ive just had to swap 2 parts of the kit with fancy components :

- 1 x Nichicon KA 100uF/35V (1559)
- 1 x 8 pin socket precision (icsockel8pr)

because they were somewhat crappy.

In short, the kit is awesome because it doesnt require any microcontroller. Likewise, its about half the price of other kits sold elsewhere (Banzaï, Mammoth, Griffin...).

4 from 5 Nice kit but instruciton on how to use could be improved

Kit is nice, assembly is easy but as it could be used in a large variety of pedals, it is difficult to find the exact instructions on hot make it work. Wen building it in a Boss SD-1, with the LED of the SD-1 connected to the bypass kit it will not function correctly. With the LED-ground wire connected to pedal ground, the LED either turns on when the pedal is of (and vice versa) or the LED is always on... Also a long search was nescecarry on how to switch the pedal to Always on (remove Resistor R23... if you can find it :-))

4 from 5 Not completely silent, but comparable to a good true bypass pedal

I bought this to convert a TS9 pedal to true bypass. (I found that the buffer gave me a small but noticeable tonal change, and rolled off some of the lowest and highest frequencies more than I wanted.) This kit worked very well.

I found that it was not completely silent, but its still quite reasonable, and comparable to some well-engineered true bypass pedals I own. If youre after a completely silent bypass, this might not be it - but if youre after converting your own TS9 to true bypass without changing the outward appearance, this might be exactly what you need.

I would happily buy again.
