Not sure if anyone has had similar problems, but my Carp diem always sounded like it was being played through a blanket, regardless of which amp I played it through or whether I ran it at 18v or 9v.
I've been using an EQ pedal to brighten it up over the last year or two as I love the amp like feel, but its now cutting out ever time I try and boost it (using either a tumnus or TC spark). If I hit the footswitch off then back on again it goes back to normal until I try and boost it again. Although it will now intermittently cut out even when not boosting (or lose 95% of its volume).
Any one else feel my pain or have any suggestions?!
