    I've been praising the pedal since I got it. Love the sound and use it on most of the time.
    Unfortunately its making a very loud click when I step on the switch to turn it on or off.
    Is there any way I can make it quiet?
    Is it a regular problem with this pedals or do I have a faulty one?

    Most of my true bypass pedals click loudly unless there is a buffer between them and the amp. Does the click go away after you press it a few times? Is there already a buffer between your Spark and your amp?

    The click doesn't go away and I have a buffered pedal after it. I have a Strymon Flint in buffered mode.

    I'm not sure the buffer makes a difference. Ymmv
