How do I change the bypass mode on Zelzah?

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

  • Press and hold the ON (6-STAGE) footswitch while connecting power to the pedal. Once both LEDs flash, release the footswitch.
  • Turn the SPEED (6-STAGE) knob to select True Bypass or Buffered Bypass. The ON (6-STAGE) LED will change color to indicate the current status as the knob is turned.
    • True Bypass: GREEN (default)
    • Buffered Bypass: RED
  • Press either footswitch to store the Bypass mode and begin using Zelzah.

NOTE: Bypass mode is a global setting that is persistent across power cycles and is not saved per preset.
