    That's only true of old effects units that kept the input jack connected to the input of a circuit with not very high input impedance.

    Things like the Ibanez pedals had buffered switching, so they didn't suck any tone.

    This whole true-bypass thing is a big fad based on a myth.

    I had a bunch of these old Ibanez pedals back in the 80's.
    It would be possible to describe everything scientifically, but it would make no sense; it would be without meaning, as if you described a Beethoven symphony as a variation of wave pressure. Albert Einstein

    Ah, yes, the '82 vintage. The cold winter in Japan made that a great growing year for op-amps. Or something.
