Pedal switcher and Red Witch Moon Phaser Volume loss
Posted: Thu Apr 22, 2010 11:07 am
I have 2 pedal switchers and a commander in my rig as well as pedals by various makers. I own a Red Witch phaser which is an incredible pedal. However, when it is in a pedal switcher loop I lose about half the volume when engaged but it passes the signal at full volume when the loop is on but the pedal is off. I tried an ibanez chorus and the voodoo lab chorus in the same loop and both worked perfectly. In my mind that eliminates the cables and the pedal switcher as culprits. I then tried the Red Witch with a guitar straight to amp and it seems normal. I also tried the buffered vs normal inputs on the second pedal switcher (phaser is loop 4 on 2nd unit) and got the same signal loss. Could there be an impedance mismatch or something that is causing the signal drop?
