    i wonder if my high impedance signal from a passiv bass gets transformed into a low impedance signal every time it goes throu a pedal (specifically a compressor)?
    That would mean that the cable length AFTER the pedal isn´t an issue right?

    No. Even with a lower impedance you still lose signal with an assymetrical cable.
    Not all pedals lower impedance anyway.

    so, does anybody knows if a compressor (ebs multicomp) lowers impedance?
