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. Overall dimensions: 4" W x 11" L x 2.5" H. The main pivot shaft is of centerless ground 1/2' diameter stainless steel, precision seated though nylon bushings at both ends. The large center shaft diameter, in addition the strength factor, creates a broader stress bearing surface. 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. Quick disconnect wiring harness allows changing the pot without soldering. 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.

Great volume pedal for a while, just have to run a buffered pedal in front of it or lose a lot of tone (which is true of any passive volume pedal). I do manual swells with my dd-500 for slower songs at church and ran it for about a month without issue. This past week I started to notice some unevenness in the pedal travel but didn't think much of it, as it still sounded fine. Come Sunday morning, it starts squeaking whenever moved after sitting in one position for long, say the length of a song. It's a small church, and it's quite audible to the audience between songs. I believe the screw holes for one of the brackets from the top of the pedal were drilled too far out, so the bracket is now bent inward, making the rubber washers squeak. And of course I'm outside the return window, which means a factory warranty. Time to test EB customer service, I've heard it's good. Just frustrating to have to pay to ship it to california a month after buying it.
it's a plain old, passive volume pedal. no batteries to mess with, no cut in your gain when your battery starts running low, etc...
i don't get any noise from it (it's passive, duh.. just a pot). it seems very rugged.
i've read some comments where at least one person complains about situations when a tuner is plugged into the tuner output jack, they experience a cut in volume.... that makes no sense, and i don't have that problem at all... the secondary tuner output is quite convenient, actually, even though i really didn't care for it when i bought it.
i really like how it feels... the pedal sits a little tall, and the volume down extreme is kind of a high angle. being that it sits a little higher, it feels ok. the pedal rocks nice and smoothly. i can see if some people don't like the taper of the volume, but i think it just takes a little getting used to. it has more to do with how the pedal feels under your foot because of how it's designed and how it's linked to the pot, and not the actual pot per se (totally different story if you're dealing with certain morley pedals).
bottom line: i'm super happy with it. i don't have ANY problems with it. the only thing i do wish is that i had bought a pedal with a minimum level set, so i can just switch between two volume levels. for the price i'm happy.
I was very pleased using this volume pedal whether it is for having an easy way to lower or mute myself or using it for swells. The mechanism for movement is sturdy for very precise positioning. The grip does a very good job of keeping my foot in place. It has a nice weight to it so I know it won't go anywhere.
I owned the Dunlop DVP1 for several months, and while it did an okay job of cutting the volume I simply did not like the feel nor the low volume levels. It felt way too bulky under foot and went from about 0 to about 3 when barely applying volume. This is unacceptable when you're trying to clean up your distortion channel or trying to accomplish a slow volume swell. But as soon as I laid the Ernie Ball down and plugged it in I fell in love. Not only does it feel great under your foot and provide precise control, it has a complete volume sweep. Add in some delay and it will give you an organ-type swell. Absolutely perfect!
I've heard some people complain about the Ernie Ball Jr being a flimsy pedal but I just don't see this. Of course, it's not a tank like the Dunlop or Morley, but it still feels very solid. It's also lighter than the others mentioned, which is a plus for traveling musicians.
I would HIGHLY recommend this pedal. It is one of my favorites on my board and I couldn't imagine playing without it!
