Can anyone suggest a very solid and stable volume pedal for bass?
What do YOU guys use?
Ive been using a visual volume pedal for about 5 years. I Love it
I use a Morely PVO.. their basic volume pedal... works really well..
been using a EB Volume Pedal, i like it.
I just tried to find the Visual Volume pedal and it looks like it is not available at this point (it's on their website but I can't find a purchase point anywhere on the web)...
The Ernie Ball volume pedals are built like a tank.
+1, Just added the passive EB VPjr to my floorboard, it's solid, low noise, and has a tuner out jack that works well too.
I've never heard of other bass players using them, but I like my VOX volume pedal. Classy look and tough as nails...
I've never understood that phrase, I bend at least one nail every time I pick up a hammer!!!
Doesn't matter. They work the same on bass as they do guitar.
The EB Jr is an awsome pedal built like a tank and eats bent up nails for breakfast plus they are cheap like 50 bucks.
I think it's in the current Elderly Instruments catalogue that arrived last week.....but I don't have it in front of me atm to check.
i had this one too, and i thought it worked very well...
I just got an e-mail from Dave at Visual Sound. They will not even have them for sale until way after the first of the year!! ;(
I am surprise that they don't have any competitors for this type of pedal. It seems like such a simple concept.....
Ernie Ball Jr.
Nothing,I mean nothing beats THAT feeling!
By feeling do you mean the amount of control that your foot has over the pedal? What do you mean?
Plus,the use of that Kevlar wire coupled with the spring gives a rather unique "smoothness" feeling as opposed to a relative rigidity of other volume pedals.I tried almost everything on the market (except the Visual Sound one) and there's really NO comparison.The only pedal I can tolerate is the built-in expression pedal from my Roland V-Bass,but only after I tweaked it mechanically.
The EBs are giving "that" feeling,comparable,say,with the one when you take your most comfortable but slightly worn-out,trusty shoes.
If you're after a cheap basic pedal, have a look at the Bespeco stuff. V. cheap and pretty indestructable.
