Does the TC SCF pedal offer true bypass so if will not affect my tone when bypassed ?
The TC SCF pedal does not offer true bypass switching. However it is one of the best sounding chorus pedals in the world. With a signal to noise ratio of 100 dB and a frequency response that doesn't rob your tone or any of it´s hard-earned character.
The SCF has a high fidelity input buffer, which a lot of guitarists use to get their guitar output up to unity gain before going into there amp. Even in bypass mode the SCF pedal will be an improvement to your sound.
