Re: ID: series strong damping effect

I also have a lack of sustain on crunch and supercrunch settings. There does seem to be some sort of noisegate cutting the notes off even though the documentation says there is not.The sustain on the clean channels is far better and notes last almost twice as long and decay naturally.

The footswitch is only 10 months old. Checked it a number of times today and it works ok. No problems whatso...
