Boss FV-300L Volume - why such terrible audio quality?

Greetings- I picked up a Boss FV-300L volume pedal several years back. I find it totally unusable with my new setup - it kills the brightness and clarity of my natural guitar tone. As this is something I don't think I can "hide behind the effects loop" I am sans volume pedal.

Why does an analog volume pedal kill the tone so much? Is this related to impedance? The FV-300L is the low impedance model. The guitar has two Fender Noiseless pickups and one Texas Special, all passive (no further onboard electronics).
