Hey! So I was wondering if you guys have this "issue" as well. With my MXR overdrive I set it up by switching to a clean sound and then adjusting the Output knob until I get roughtly around the same volume with the pedal on or off. A friend of mine just bought an EHX East River Drive which I was considering on purchasing as well as a cheap Tubescreamer alternative for the added mids compared to my MXR. However, when I try to set it up the way I use my MXR, I have to crank the output on the EHX and even then, the pedal still sucks some volume compared to it bypassed. I'm not really using super high-output pickups. Just the standard Duncan JB and DiMarzio Dominion (which has a very similar output level to the JB). This isn't an issue if I'm using the pedal in front of a heavily driven amp, but if I ever intend to use the pedal in front of a clean amp to switch back and forth an overdriven and a clean sound, it won't work the way I'd want it to. Do other Tubescreammers have this kind of "issue" too or is it just the EHX because it's cheap? Do you guys ever run into this as well?
