Hi, I'm having some issues with my wah and compressor, and I was hoping maybe someone here could help me out.

I have a lot of pedals (12 atm) and I thought it would be fun to put em all together in the same chain and see what I can do. What happened was that whenever I started using the wah, a jerry cantrell crybaby, the volume would drop and the sound would get very thin. So to find the problem, I went like 'guitar straight into amp and play/listen' -> 'guitar into first pedal, then amp, and play/listen' 'guitar into first 2 pedals etc etc. the wah itself turns out to be working just fine when I use it on its own, or after the tuner and a volume pedal. However, when I go 'volume - tuner - wah - compressor - amp' (compressor is keeley 4 knob) shit starts to happen. Even if the compressor is turned off, when I start using the wah, I get that lower volume/thin sound thing happen.

some things to consider:
- I don't think its the cables, because the sound that comes from 'guitar - amp' is pretty much identical to the sound of 'guitar - volume - tuner - wah - compressor - amp' when none of these pedals are on.
- everything is powered with the voodoo lab PP2+
- compressor is true bypass, and is brand new and working fine.

Any thoughts as to why this is happening?

you may need a buffer. i am not sure which of your pedals have buffers vs. true bypass.

also check inside and see if there is a trim pot.

well i have a suhr koko boost which is also a buffer i think. but the problem even occurs with a 5 pedal chain.... you shouldnt need a buffer with this.

and what about the trimpot? what do i do?

EDIT: it even happens when i go guitar - wah - comp - amp..... WTF IS HAPPENING

nevermind, fixed it, one of the inputs of the pedals was faulty so there wasnt a good connection. somehow the original guitar signal wasnt affected but with the wah it was shit. problem solved
