So I have this late 80's / early 90's bass flanger pedal (I talked about it here trying to gather informations about it, so if you know anything, please drop me a comment! ) that goes clipping everytime I dig in a bit. And I tend to do that a lot. That's nothing much really, some kind of crackling, weird gated farty buzzes when I slam a low E or when I dig into some heavy plucking. The problem is even more blatant when I use my Epiphone Jack Casady, that seems to have quite a hot output. I know there is some impedance deal with that pickup, but that never caused any problem with any other pedal. I isolated the pedal (like basse>pedal>amp) as I read it here in another thread, but the clipping remains (so I assume it really is from my pickup and not because of drives being in front of it). Note that the sound goes smoothly through the pedal without clipping anything when it's off, either by itself or within my signal chain (so I presume true bypass...?) So my questions here are: Is this something that can be adjusted? I read here and there that people would calibrate either the BBD or the op-amp if any (I don’t know much about electronics and stuffs, so I don’t know if the pedal actually is a BBD circuit or rely on an op-amp, but that's the examples I saw and there is something doing something in there.. ). If not, I think it'll unfortunately have to go back on the shelf and I'll be looking for another flanger pedal. So is this something usual with old school analog modulation pedals? Should I go digital instead? I have a shortlist of pedals I have in mind regarding the controls I need and my personnal pros/cons, but I'd rather like to know if it's something I'm going to run into again before buying anything. Thanks in advance!
