Expression Pedals

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by chief redcok, Jul 23, 2012.

  1. So I am looking for an Expression Pedal for my Moog MF101.. what would be my best bet?

    Please.. Not the ep-2 the fact that its controlled by a string really makes me not want to buy it, let alone many saying how bad it is..

    But so far been looking at the Boss fv-500L

    But let me know your opinions!

    There is nothing wrong with the EP-2 except the hinge tends to wear out/get loose in time. Using a string to turn the pot is by far the most common method, also employed by the incredibly reliable Ernie Ball volume pedals, etc.

    +1 or try a Roland EV-5
  4. All these suggestions are very nice and helpful but my question, essentially, is which one is best for the MF101 besides the ep-2, Im looking at the ernie ball and the roland and they both look great

    If you are familiar with the EB volume pedals and like the feel (many do, they're very solid) they can be modded for expression use (identical circuit to the EP-2, just a different feel). I am doing a bunch and offering them up, if you're interested, or you can just go for an EP-2 which is cheaper and see how you like it. They do work fine, IME.
