    I'm looking for an expression pedal that has the following specs:
    - 500K, linear pot
    - no strings, treadle or other only (so no Ernie Ball stuff)
    - wah enclosure, the micro controllers like those made by Nose or Saturnworks don't work for me
    - TRS jacks
    - not necessary, but it would be cool if it was mini

    Anything out there like that? I can't for the life of me find anything. The closest I could find is the Mission Engineering EP1-TC G-System that's 250K.
     
  2. What's it to be used for? Most are 25K or 50K that I've seen.

    Yeah. There are four pedals I'm trying to figure out how to use their expression inputs while not taking up too much board space. Part of the problem is this one pedal, DigDugDIY Waifu lo-fi reverb that Johnk modded to have the sample rate control be controlled by an expression input. The original pot value was a 500k

    I've decided to get an inexpensive wah pedal and diy an expression pedal

    Probably your best bet. Bummer John didn't do the full job for you - hope you didn't pay much as a result.

    Hot Pots has a 470k version that may work.

    Oh no I have no beef with John. He did a great job. It was a wonky circuit in a tight enclosure and he was upfront with the fact that any expression pedal will sound good, I just want the full range.
