    Okay, I've done some searching and didn't feel like resurrecting any zombie threads...I'm looking for a cheap but useable expression pedal to use with an Eventide Pitchfactor and a Boss GT-10B.

    I've found three in the $30-40 range that seem like they should work, but I'm not sure which one to go with, if any. I'm looking for opinions:

    Behringer FCV100
    Moog EP-2
    M Audio EP-X
    None of these---please list below the cheapest option you would go with

    Roland EV5 would be my choice. The price is a little bit higher but its worth it. I bought two used ones for my M9 for 60 Euro (~70$?) and they work great!

    The ep-2 does the job fine but I did like the feel of the roland ev5 when I had it.

    Have the moog. Tried the EP-2 also, and liked the feel more but it's more pricey. The moog is cheaper and I'm pretty sure it has a small foortrint for an expression pedal if that matters. The moog is also plastic, but has a really nice, heavy base.

    Also liked the yamaha exp pedal, but again, the moog has a smaller footprint and that factored in

    I'm a little confused---the EP-2 is a Moog, isn't it? Are you talking about a different Moog?

    MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!

    EV5 works well when it works. I sold mine and bought the moog because the roland didn't always work with non-boss pedals. So far, the moog has worked with everything, including homebuilt stuff.
