While not played a Therapy, I do have the Antidote with bypass. When bypass is engaged (should it be disengaged? Actually what your doing to the tone stack, I digress) the gain and volume go up. Perhaps with the added gain the Therapy appears to have the circuit would become unstable and feedback uncontrollably? My friend who is an amp tech has had some issues with some of the 18 and 36 watt Marshall clones that have the TMB (trebble/middle/base) tone stack. There is quite a lot of gain and things start to go bad quickly. Lead dress helps, but the circuit just seems unstable especially with the 36 watt version.

I suspect the Doc tried it, didn't like it, so didn't offer it.
Having had EQ Bypass on two previous amps (Maz 18 - didn't like it; Remedy - loved it), I find with the Therapy I don't need it -I hit the front end with an EP, and it does exactly the same job, regardless of where the V is at, even maxed.
This is a very uncluttered amp - minimum "stuff" between guitar and speaker, and boy does it show! For once I don't want anything else in an amp - it lacks nothing IMHO
