okay so i'm playing a cort mirage through a digittech metalmaster stomp box through a hughes and kettner warp 7 combo, now whn the pedal is turned off there is no noise. (slight amp hum but thats normal) but whe i engage the pedal, it hiss's kind of like TV static sound?
So i'm just wondering if this is a normal thing to be happening . Thanks

Yes, it's normal. You'll get more hiss from that pedal due to the amount of gain it has.

yeah all gain pedals add noise. it's a shame but you get the sound you need.
especially if you love metal (like me). I'm not sure about this but apparently if you use a compressor pedal as well (so from the gain pedal into the compressor then into amp) it gives you less noise and more sustain. not sure though i haven't tried or looked up. so if anyone who's used one knows anything about that can tell me if this works or not. it would be greatly appreciated.
