So don't yell at me because I did try to do research before making this thread, but I couldn't find what I wanted. Anyway, when I turn my 535q on, especially with the distortion, the volume goes WAY up, and it sounds noisy and sloppy and terrible. This is going from pedal into an amp which is making the distortion itself, and the volume boost on my pedal itself is still all the way off. I'm using the Hendrix Voodoo Chile settings from the book that came with the pedal. Is there a way to make the sound so I can play with the pedal all the way forward without it sounding terrible?

Are you sure the volume boost is turned all the way down? It might be a defect thats forcing the volume boost all the way up even when it's turned off. If you've got the wah in the effects loop, it can screw with the distortion of some amps as you rock it back and forth, causing unwanted (and sometimes wanted) volume swells. Does it do this for all settings or just certain ones?

All settings. The thing is, I can definitely hear a difference when the boost is down as opposed to up, but both ways seems way too loud, just varying degrees of 'too loud'.

Is the red boost stitch off? I don't have that problem with mine.

No, that's off. It's really strange, I can't figure out what the problem is.

Take it back and ask for another one. I'm just going to get a basic crybaby after what I've seen here, are these fancy wahs more trouble than they're worth?
#12
it might sound louder because of the different frequencies. don't know though

I don't think so, I just don't know what I'm doing. Tons of people love the 535q, which is why I got one. I just think I might have a defective one.
