    I'm not going to commit to saying your amp is faulty. The high treble side does dominate. Even bridged it is either very much there on 1 whereas the normal side is a lot more linear. It can be perceived as louder because it can wallop a set of ears it is so cutting.

    The Bright channel is louder at lower volumes than the normal channel because it allows high frequencies to bypass the volume knob.

    The 2 top inputs should be about the same volume, but treble side may "seem" louder. Same goes with the 2 lower inputs, should be about the same, but treble may "seem" louder.

    Edit:
    Sounds like we're all saying basically the same thing.

    Guys I really appreciate your responses. Now an admission of stupidity :facepalm: I always thought that the two inputs on each channel were just for jumpering, and therefore identical.....but now I know better, so maybe that is having an impact. I need to spend some time experimenting with those and hopefully confirm my amp is not bust (I know, shameful!).
    Thanks again.

    Looking for something I don't remember what.
    The most popular is guitar into top left then jumper from bottom left to top right. In pre loop days we would also use the jumper for pedals.....i.e. bottom left to pedals then pedals to top right.

    Yes I have lower volume on the normal channel but not detrimental.

    Guys, I have just made the serendipitous find. That my Boss EQ pedal works in the SV fx loop without a power adapter. Why?

    Will this do harm?

    Is this the case with all amps and all pedals?

    I don't take myself that serious. But you gave me a real good laugh. Still chuckling.

    To be honest guys, the pedal was new. I had no idea they would supply it with a battery.

    I thought it was some super new technology. Silly me!

    Hey ho.

    Yes all Boss pedals come with battery fitted...where applicable, of course.

    even the RC30 looper came with 8 AA batteries, but they were not fitted inside like in the boss compact pedals

    Who is using an EQ pedal with the SV20? Which one? In front or in the loop? Full time tone shaping or primarily solo volume boost?

    For tone shaping... I have tried a number of them, from 4 knob, 5 knob, up to 10 band EQ. Personally, I don't find the need to use a multi-band EQ, like my 10 band EQ, on a dirty amp. I am happy with a TC Spark Boost. I use it strictly as a clean boost, and love it. And I use it as the last pedal in the fx loop.

    For solo boost, I have an Xotic Super Clean before the amp, and/or use dynamics.

    I'm using the Source Audio Programmable EQ in the loop, as a lead boost. I've also used the Boss GE-7, sounds fine but the Source Audio is more easily tweakable.

    I am using the boss GE7 generally in the loop to warm the tone, especially the clean tone.

    But it works well after an od pedal going in the front.
