alright so i love this pedal but when i play with my band and my 6505+ i needa play fairly loud so that i could be heard. The problem is, the level on the pedal cannot be put too far or else i will overload the pedal, for those of you who have this pedal you know that when the overload light turns on it means im getting a distorted signal. I'd like to know if theres a way to fix this problem. Thanks.

Uh... turn the level down a little bit?

I run mine at about 3 o'clock, which gets the OL light to blink a little bit. If you're playing thru a 6505, I don't really understand how a litle more drive would bother you, anyway.

well i don't use the DMM the whole time, so i need to play to play without it then hit it on and stay at the same volume without getting it to overload.....

get a volume knob box or sumtin before your DMM. turn the level on the volume box down, and u can leave the DMM's volume up.

i'm not talking about those attenuator boxes... it's just a volume knob just like one a guitar.

If you are running it straight in to the amp try the effects loop. Using pedals in front of the MM, especially distortion or overdrive might not be good. If you already thought of this I apologize. Just my theories. I am obviously not an expert on this pedal.

Unless the 6505+ has a volume for the send/return on the effects loop you aren't going to be able to get it quiet enough. Usually effect loops are designed to drive rack units so they're set louder, floor pedals tend to get overloaded because they're used to a much lower signal.
