Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The potentiometer has a 25k ohm resistance suitable for an active audio path. Overall Volume Pedal Junior dimensions: 3.5" W x 10"& L x2 3/8" H . The main pivot shaft is of centerless ground 1/2' diameter stainless steel, precision seated though nylon bushings at both ends. Tough long lasting Kevlar cable transmits pedal travel to the controls and is attached by stainless steel springs.

The design and development of the Ernie Ball pedals has been a team effort of guitar players and craftspersons within our company. Pedal bodies are an aluminum extrusion rather than a casting resulting in greater strength, uniformity, and smoother surfaces. Clear anodized grain finish insures lasting beauty. Our bodies and shafts are designed to give the player an indefinite service life! Deck mat of non-slip material is impervious to oil, alcohol, and most things you might spill on it. Tough long lasting Kevlar cable transmits pedal travel to the controls and is attached by stainless steel springs. This drive design results in smooth and quiet operation qualities lacking in gear driven models. Cycle tests are made on every pedal to insure perfect operation prior to packaging.

It's a very solid pedal and well built.

This pedal is cast aluminum with good bearing surfaces and countersunk machine screws.

This is not great if you're playing a show and are setting up in a hurry.

This is probably the best built expression/volume pedal on the market. Most are not very strong and will not hold up if you play out very much. This pedal is cast aluminum with good bearing surfaces and countersunk machine screws.

If you use any of the Eventide stomp boxes, this is the pedal to use. It is recommended by Eventide and meets the 25k ohm requirement. Operation is very smooth and the stompbox reacts immediately - there is no lag.

Hookup to the stompbox requires just one mono patch cable from the "Out" jack on the 6181 to the "Expression In" jack on the Eventide. You don't connect to any other jack on the 6181 - super simple.

I use it with a Pitchfactor and can't see using the effect without an expression pedal.
This pedal is a little more expensive than most of the others but not by that much and it is well worth the price. There is no point in trying to save $20 when the difference in quality is worth more than that.

I was in a hurry and I didn't want to spend a lot of money... I also didn't have a lot of space left on my pedal board. Given these constraints this was a fine volume pedal. I had a long weekend gig and it performed fine for the four days. I did find that it's possible to push the volume past 0. When you do that it goes around full volume. Fortunately I found this behavior during sound check. Once I knew that could happen it wasn't a problem, just don't STAND on it. A simple rock back to zero works fine. Will I keep it forever? good question. I probably will.

cheers.

Got this to work with an Eventide TimeFactor - this brand pedal was recommended in their manual - it controls any parameter like delay feedback in realtime. Very nice indeed! Quality is like built like a tank - wonderful.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

I Bought this pedal to use as an expression pedal for my my line 6 M9 stomp modeler. I must say that it operates very smoothly and does a fantastic job for what I bought it for.
However I have never been a big fan of volume pedals for use in the signal path. I tried this out with my Mesa Express 5/50 and was shocked by how little it effected my guitars tone(Fender American Strat w/EMG active pickups). I would definitely recommend this pedal for anything that you need a volume pedal or CV control pedal with. It is my first Ernie Ball product and I will
surely try other products from this manufacturer. Good Stuff!

I personally love the 'swelling' method of guitar playing.. I have owned one other guitar pedal before this one, and there is truthfully no comparison. I love the Ernie Ball Jr..! I definitely recommend it to anyone who wants the smoothest transition from no sound to full sound.

Plus, it's most helpful feature is the 'Tuner' output. If you run a 1/4 inch power from the Tuner output to the input of a tuner (I use a Boss TU-2), you can leave your tuner on at all times and still have sound. Normally, a tuner will cut off the sound signal. This is very helpful when playing on a stage!

A sturdy aluminum and smooth pedal that does the work perfectly. It has a double function for me (not simultaneously). I use as a volume pedal with my i Rig Stomp/Iphone-Amplitube config. sometimes, and as an expression pedal, with my Stealth Pedal and amplitube-MacBook pro configuration. Don't have any complain so far, the only issue that bothers my mind is the cord and spring mechanism, but haven't heard of any bad comment about it neither. Still is worth the money, because it surely does the job.
I recommend it!

Was looking for a volume pedal that didn't require a batter or a wall wart to power. This pedal fit the bill and it works perfectly.
