notes cutting off with Supar-Boost pedal? normal?

hi all. Just a question.

I have a supa-boost pedal hand-wired version. When it is plugged into my Marshall 1959 amp and 4 x 12 cab, and not switched on yet, the delay pedal i use puts out something like 8 repeats when i hit the strings. Then when i turn the supa-boost pedal on in front of the delay pedal, normal placement, and hit the strings, i only get 4 delay repeats now. I.e. the supa-boost is cutting off the notes and you can hear the note depleting as if the voltage is running out. Is this weird, or is this a normal supa-boost created natural note depletion / natural compression and note drop off from this type of circuit? i.e. is this part of the normal compression from the supa-boost pedal? i think not, but maybe thats the way it was created, to create that natural compression that has the note dying out sort of thing, like a variac type of tube end of life sort of thing. ---- I place a TS808 normal overdrive pedal in the same place as the supa-boost pedal, and i get 8 plus delay repeats as normal. Hope you get my meaning here. love some advice

GEar used: eric clapton strat
Marshall 1959HW plus 4 green backs
pedal power plus 2 power supply for pedal power (its not the power supply, the supa-boost is getting plenty of power and ive tried other power supplies - isolated and non -isolated)
ibanez mini delay pedal
supa-boost pedal

Have you tried adjusting the boost pedal's volume while playing? It may be overloading or starving the signal enough to affect the delay's pedal normal operation. This is only a guess and it may be best to call and ask George directly.
