Ok so i was at work today and i decided to plug my useless Metal Zone pedal into my Effects Loop when i got home to find out if that would work or w/e...

So i got home and tried it out and when i hooked it up my amp tone cleared up and sounds WAYYYY better... but then i noticed the pedal wasnt even turned on it was just plugged in to the send/return and what not.

Once i turned it on my amp went back to its normal tone.

Any idea why this happens? Thanks!

It appears your amp likes the bypass buffer in the pedal.

I'd say this...
So what is that exactly? If i were to replace the pedal with a Boss EQ would i still get the same thing going on? Cuz thats what i want
