I've been using my Sparkle Drive for the last 6 weeks now as a boost to my Boss OD-1 and recently I was going through my chain to see if there was a bad connection anywhere, (New Guitar Player article on pedals was my influence here) I had noticed when I took my Sparkle Drive out of line that a whole bunch of clarity was pushed back into my tone. I then reconnected the Sparkle Drive and I lacked the punch I had with it out of line. Do any of you other Sparkle Drive users find your unit to be a tone sucker? And if so, is there a solution to this problem? An A/B switch wouldn't do me a whole lot of good considering I use the pedal as a boost and in pretty much every tune I'm playing. The Sparkle Drive is claimed to be true-bypass. I'm now iffy on the whole true-bypass theory. Anyways, I'm just looking for tips on how to not lose any tone in my chain.
