    i am using 2 pedals as of now ..

    bass into Boss DS1 into Boss CEB-3 (bass chorus) into amp..

    my question is .. how come my DS-1 is so powerfully boosting my signal that i only turn the level on DS-1 to about 8am ...

    while for my CEB-3 i have to turn it until i past 2pm to achieve the same strength .. is this normal? both of the battery is fairly new..

    The DS-1 is a distortion, a guitar distortion.
    That's 2 reasons to have a lot of gain.
