When I said "bypass" I really just meant keeping the compression at the lowest it could possibly go. Which won't "Bypass" it so I worded that wrong. What about using it instead of a radial x amp though? Will the hi-z input be enough to get things up from line level to instrument level or am I thinking completely wrong?
