    Default footswitch & volume

    I noticed that when the foot switch is not plugged in the back jack, the volume increases. Plug the foot switch in and the volume decreases.

    Normal?

    There are 2 footswitch jacks. Which one?
    Are both footswitch buttons turned off?

    Foot switch jack marked boost/channel. Foot switch in non-boost mode.

    While amp on and playing disconnect foot switch from back jack. There's a volume increase. Plug footswitch back in. Volume decrease.

    The front panel Boost switches operate manually with no footswitch connected. So if a front panel Boost switch is set to Boost, the channel gain will increase with no footswitch connected. So, if you plug in the footswitch with the footswitch Boost function turned off, that will disable the front panel boost function, causing the gain (and therefore the voulme) to decrease.

    Thank you for the explanation. Both boost toggle switches were on.
