Powerboost Build Help: Low output on BYPASS?

Postby TheLemon » 02 Nov 2009, 21:01

I built an 18v Powered version of the Colorsound Powerboost (ala Gilmours) and power it currently with a 9v power supply, and it works fine except for a little un-biased sounding. The problem is when the pedal is off, the dry signal has low output, and sounds a little gritty and unclear. Any ideas what might be causing this? The switch maybe?
