True Bypass Kit


This kit is designed with wah pedals in mind (and includes instructions and diagrams for some different wahs), but it can be used with many other pedals if you know what you are doing. Two versions: A standard version that includes the 3PDT switch, and instruction booklet, and an LED version that includes the switch, current limiting resistor, LED, and fresnel lens that can be side mounted if you prefer - the light reflects in all directions. The booklet contains the following:
