So recently (for christmas)
I got a Dunlop Cry Baby Original and an Ibanez PM7 tone lok phaser. With new batteries in each, when I hook it up to my amp it just get's really quiet. When I use my other pedals (Boss heavy metal, Boss metal core, my GFS tuner) my guitar amp volume is normal. But with the two new pedals I really have to turn my amp up max to get the volume i was getting at like 2. Any hints, tips, has this happened to any of you with the same pedals?


I'm running my pedals via effects loop into my Raven RG100.

When you say you're running your pedals via the effects loop, do you mean ALL of them or just the ones that are supposed to be there.

^This. The only pedal you might want in your loop is the phaser, and I prefer mine in the chain prior to the amp input. Any time- based fx would do well in the loop as well. Order the rest properly before the main input.

I still have the problem however of the phaser also dimming the sound drastically, when in use and when not in use

Take all your pedals out of the loop except for the phaser. Try just plugging your guitar straight to the amp and have just the phaser in the loop. If you still have the problem it may be an issue with the pedal. However as already said you shouldn't have your wah, tuner or distortion pedals in the effects loop, they're designed to go between guitar and amp. Phasers/delays/chorus/flange/reverb etc go in the effects loop.

I've already tried that, thats how i narrowed the problem down to my phaser.
