i just got one of these yesterday, and i hooked it up. awesome effects. my only question is, that when i engage the pedal, it seems to turn the gain down quite a bit, and it is not nearly as loud as when it is not engaged. i replaced the battery with a fresh 9v. is this normal or what? i dont suppose that it is THAT much of a problem, but there is definately a noticeable loss of volume. thanks.
