    Volume pedals that aren't Pedalboard space hogs are few & far between .... the nosepedal micro volume was the closest to what I wanted but not quite ....

    So I made my own out of a dead DOD EQ box .... works very well ... better than I hoped even!

    Woo Hoo :)

    What value/brand/taper pot did you use out of curiosity? I have been considering throwing together something similar, as my trusty Boss FV-300H is SOOO big!

    That's a cool design. Super ball?

    Can you pull off swells with that thing?

    Swells? I don't use it like that but I'm sure it would ... its smooth & surprisingly easy to use .... Superball = Yes

    100K pot ... real short taper The v pedal was a cheapo bespeco ...

    I never heard of Bespeco until I ended up with 3 Volume pedals that were in a box of misc music crap I bought off craigslist.

    They are clean & quite though.
