How do I change the bypass mode on Flint?

From the factory, Flint’s bypass mode is set to True Bypass with the option to be set to Buffered Bypass.  There are several benefits to setting Flint to Buffered Bypass mode:

  • Preserves the high frequency response of your guitar signal through your pedal chain and long cable runs.
  • Helps maintain signal levels when  the pedal is both bypassed and engaged when there is an impedance mismatch between the pedals’ output and the device it is connected to.
  • If there is DC offset in the audio signal, it helps eliminate popping in the audio when engaging and bypassing the pedal.

To change the bypass mode on Flint:

  • Press and hold the REVERB ON footswitch while powering up Flint. Once both LEDs flash, release the footswitch.
  • Turn the MIX knob to choose between True Bypass or Buffered Bypass modes. The REVERB ON LED will change color to indicate the current status.
    • True Bypass: GREEN (default).
    • Buffered Bypass: RED
  • Press either footswitch to store the bypass mode and begin using Flint.

NOTE:  Connecting a cable into the RIGHT OUTPUT jack will automatically set the bypass mode to Buffered Bypass.
