Bass Popping when turning off tuner

Our bass guitar is run through a brand new digital tuner. When turning the tuner to bypass it makes a really loud "shotgun"like pop through the speaker! If I do it multiple times it get less noisy each time eventually reducing to a faint pop! If I let it sit for a minute the process repeats! Any ideas?
For trouble shooting purposes I'm going to bypass the power and just use a 9v battery and see what that does, I'll let you all know what I find!

I heard a tuner recently that made a pop. I'd say get a new tuner pedal; most of them don't do that.

yeah... we had a tuner that gave us a pop after it was used for a while... I just took it out of rotation, with intentions to try to fix it - but it still sits in my box of stuff that needs repair.

I've never seen/heard that happen. Sounds like a defective unit to me. Take it back and get it replaced. If that one's bad too, get another model.

True Bypass pedals have a tendancy to pop. That could be the issue. Check out the Boss TU-3 -it's not fancy but thousands use it everyday without problems.

Usually this is because the manufacture went with a standard switch instead of a non-shorting switch. With standard switches you get a moment in the middle of the throw where the switch actually shorts which usually makes the pop. If you load up a non-shorting switch then the problem will go away.
