I was messing around with my effects last night using a different bass than I normally do with my pedal board. I usually play a fender aerodyne when I use my board, and all my pedals are set for that bass. Last night I was using my G&L L2000, which is way louder. I set the gain on my amp accordingly...and played. After playing for a while plugged directly into my amp, I added my effects into the signal chain as I normally do: Bass>Aphex punch factory>Tu-12H tuner>Wooly Mammoth>Fulltone bass-drive>Sansamp programmable>Amp I kept all the pedals off, to be safe. When i played it was way louder than It had been when playing direct. When i turned any effect on the volume dropped by about 1/2? Anyone have any idea why this is happenning? All pedals except the sansamp are true bypass...so it leads me to think that is where the problem is. I haven't tried any trouble shooting yet...I was too hungry to deal with it last night, and too lazy after I ate. Any help would be aprreciated.
