I'm trying to reduce the popping noise from my true bypass looper pedal by installing a pull down resistor to the input and output cables. I'm a novice when it comes to this stuff and have no idea how (or what a pull down resistor is/where to purchase one for that matter) to install one into the cable. Any help on this? Thanks
The common trick is to place a 10M resistor across the switch contacts so that it effectively never goes totally open. 10M is small enough to silence the pop usually but large enough that it doesn't affect the sound or let enough sound through that you can hear it.
