Just bought  a clean boost pedal to loop with one of my pesky volume drop effects. Humungous loud BANG! whenever I turn it on. Doesn't diminish after multpile use of the switch. Not a huge issue as it'll be always on and in a loop switched elsewhere. But still darned annoying.

I read that all true bypass effects do this. Well, not all of mine do! And those that do don't make quite such a good imitation of a shotgun. Is there qanything to be done?

Sounds like a mechanical switch, with a 'break-before-make' switching action, rather than a 'make-before-break' switching action. Rather than a switch switching the circuit electronicaly...

Can't get my head round that Electrickery stuff....

It's all witchcraft from what I can see of it and makes no sense. 

For instance people say you have to unplug an active bass to stop the battery draining. Duh, with no plug in there's now nothing to stop the electricity draining out the hole.
