Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by Jay Terrien, Dec 6, 2005.

  1. Can anyone suggest a very solid and stable volume pedal for bass?
    What do YOU guys use?

  6. 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...

  10. 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.
  14. i had this one too, and i thought it worked very well...
  15. 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!! ;(

  17. I am surprise that they don't have any competitors for this type of pedal. It seems like such a simple concept..... ;)

    Nothing,I mean nothing beats THAT feeling!
  19. By feeling do you mean the amount of control that your foot has over the pedal? What do you mean?

    Yep,exactly! :hyper:
    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.
