    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

    I'm in the exact same boat! I'll be waiting for some responses.

    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.
