I've just bought a Hardwire CR7 chorus pedal. After adding it to my pedalboard, there was a noticeable decrease in volume. The volume decrease occurs when the pedal is on or off - If it's in the chain, I have to increase the volume a fair amount on my amp to hear any output. I've removed all other variables from the equation by comparing the volume of a direct connection between guitar and amp with just using the one pedal in the chain. I've also varied the patch cables: It's definitely the pedal causing the drop in volume. I understand that any pedal will cause electrical resistance, but each of the other Hardwire pedals I own don't have this problem. Is this a known issue with this pedal, or do I have a bad one? I'm using a Vox VT20+ amp and a Les Paul.
