Does anyone who has this pedal notice a slight loss of bass when using it. I am aware that the natural effect of the pedal boosts the mids, but I mean even when the effect is off. I tried one at guitar center, no problem, and I used my same exact guitar/amp. The one I just got, new, sounds very "off and on". Sometimes I feel like with the pedal off, the guitar sounds less full. I disconnected the pedal and it seems to make a slight difference, but I'm not sure. I use a Marshall DSL40C

Are you talking about the bypass or the overdrive signal?
The bypass. I know the overdrive signal is supposed to boost the mids, but even bypassed, the pedal seems to affect my tone.

Shitty cables? Signal loss? If its a new amp and new pedal, are you sure it isn't just you?

it's a boss pedal, the buffer in them isn't great. it sucks tone.

either get someone to modify it to true bypass or use a true bypass looper.
yeah the buffer in it is known to bleed a bit when in bypass. i.e. let a bit of the pedal's tone through (which cuts bass as you said)- apparently some are worse than others and it's kind of pot luck as to whether you get a really bad one or a barely-noticeable one.

easiest fix is to put another buffered pedal (or standalone buffer) in front of the sd1 in your pedal chain. that should cure the problem, assuming the problem is being caused by the bleed i mentioned.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
