So kill me, I'm a n00b at this...
Problem is, I just got a new effects pedal, an Ibenez distortion. I get home, all happy about it, plug in with new cables (nneded some anyways...) and everything is fine untill one thing happens. The clean sound is the right volume, but the distortion comes out like a mouse fart. After tweaking around, the same happens but in reverse.

Can someone pleas help me out on this...how the hell do I set up the blasted thing so the volume stays the same?
I can do no wrong, for I do not know what wrong is.

Squire 50th Stratocaster (Pimped Out)
Gibson SG Standard
Tuxedo Telecaster Terror (Own Build)

Marshall MGFX 100 Combo
im not familiar with the ibanez pedals but there should be a level knob on it, that controls the volume when the pedal is on, just adjust it till its the same volume off/on
