Vintage Delay: Pop/clicks when turning it ON/OFF in an effect loop

Question

I'm hearing a pop or click sound when turning the Vintage Delay ON/OFF in an effect loop. What is going on?

Answer

Please keep the following in mind, you experience a pop or a click while using the Vintage Delay in an effect loop

  • The pedal has a true hardwire bypass function which will allow the sound signal to run through when you switch both the power and effect off.  This could generate a slight pop/click sound, which is perfectly normal.
  • This can also occur if you are not using the correct power supply for the pedal which has galvanic separation. The pop/click sound can be exaggerated if you're using a power supply which doesn't have galvanic separation.
