I just got a VXL. Seems like an alright pedal. Simlar to the Sansamp but a little brighter in general. Shape function is decent, kind of like how half the controls on a Mesa/Boogie amp work with that pull business. When in my effects chain this pedal screws up my volume and makes the signal way lower. I practically feel like I am better off without it. Anyone know how to get around this or what is causing it?
