So I just got a green Russian a few days ago and I'm having a bit of trouble with it. My other pedals all have their volume set near the mid point to sound the same whether the pedal is on or off, but with the muff, I have to set the level down around 8:00 and sustain around noon in order for it to sound similar in volume to everything else. The issue though is that it seems like I'm not getting the most out of this pedal with its level knob close to min. If I try to turn the sustain anywhere past noon, I have to take the level knob even lower. Since this is my first pedal like this, is this normal or am I not utilizing it correctly? I've tried placing my compressor before or after, and I have the same issue. It's a bit frustrating and no matter what I'm trying, it just seems too darn loud when switched on to where there's a huge jump in volume. Any thoughts.
