    It would help the uninitiated if you could say exactly what the footswitch is supposed to be doing - channel switch? Effects in/out? Other?

    Knowing that, I might be able to offer a wildy inaccurate guess . . . . ;)
     
  4. sar. i forgot to type it. it turns on and off the graphic EQ.
     
  5. if so, turn it down.
     
  6. the EQ does not have a seperate gain.

    Are you boosting a lot of frequencies on your EQ? If I do that on my Peavey TKO, there is quite a large jump in volume
