- - Volume Pedals
|ScottBlasko ||09-24-2013 04:55 PM |
Hello- I'm interested in buy a volume pedal for my bass pedalboard. Any recommendations? I've been looking at both the Ernie Ball Jr. and the Dunlop pedal. Is one better than the other, and also are there others out there that are worth looking at? I've never had/used a volume pedal before, so any help and direction would be very much appreciated. Thx :cool:

Boss is easily the best I've owned and I've owned a few

what really matters with unpowered pedals regardless of brand is the impedance; if you have an active bass or run other buffered pedals between it and the volume pedal, then a low impedance volume pedal (25k) will give you the smoothest sweep.
if you want to run a passive bass straight into the pedal, then you need at least a 250k pedal or you'll get tone suck, and even then you might still lose a little clarity.
active volume pedals (where they themselves are powered by 9V) have the buffer built-in, so there's no loss or weirdness with the sweep no matter where you run it.

I've got a morley volume pedal that I used a bit with keyboard and a full pedalboard, but I have yet to find a use for it with bass or guitar. And for this reason it is for sale.

I love my Ernie Ball full sized volume pedal. Great taper for swells!
