    i apologies if this has been covered before and im just being a pain in the A55 but i just need a quick answer, volume pedals is there any massive difference between all the ones available, or any that are just generally better then the others, i was looking at the jim dunlop high gain, any good? or just the same as the others?

    Apparently, the Ernie Ball Jr. is the most recommended, yet it seems to inflict fairly heavy tone suckage... do I understand it correctly? I've been interested on getting a volume pedal myself, if only for volume swells and simulated bow-playing..

    My Ernie Ball VPjr does not suck any tone.

    I recommend it.
  4. I have the fender/volume tone. It's got 3d movement i.e. you can move it side to side to add/reduce tone (like the tone pot on your bass). I find it's great not only for the volume control but the tone control as well. Check it out...
  5. IMO there is only one volume pedal. EB VP JR

    No further discussion necessary. Mod, you can now lock the thread.


    Just kidding. Let the discussion begin.

    I got a used Boss FV-500H for my setup. All my basses are passive.
    No issues and I don't have any tone suck from it. Built like a tank too.
