The Zombie Switch Optical Bypass Module is a pop-less bypass.

Use this when you have to absolutely have no popping. While this isn't 100% true bypass, it is very close. The difference is that the effect input is hooked up to a optocoupler. This optocoupler is "open" when the Zombie is in bypass which disconnects the effect and leaves the input jack directly connected to the output jack. When the Zombie is switched to the effect position, the optocoupler is "closed" and the effect is engaged. Now what makes the popping go away is there is a very, very short delay (totally inaudible) when the optocoupler is engaged that eliminates any DC spikes. To further protect against any popping the "Status" LED is also isolated by the optocoupler.

Includes: Zombie Switch with diode, optocoupler, capacitor, and resistor mounted to the PCB. LED is not mounted. The Zombie switch has pads to either mount the LED directly on the circuit board or to use wires to mount it elsewhere.

The Zombie Switch was designed to have big solder pads for the DPDT switch so it will work with a number of different DPDT switches. The DPDT switch is not included but can be purchased in our Switches category.

It's small footprint will let you stick it almost anywhere. Measures 1.4" x 1.04" inches (36 x 26mm).

Worked flawlessly and I think it works better than true bypass and those crappy 3pdt switches. The switch that comes with it is much nicer too.
