Behind the jack area under the footplate is a micro taper switch which provides the user two distinct volume swell rates. A tuner output is provided and allows silent tuning when the pedal is in the heel down position.

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.

- It's long. 10" plus the cords coming out of the top, so you need to have pedal space. My board is pretty tight, so that part sucks. (On the bright side, it's thinner than a Morley). Using right-angled cord plugs seems to be tolerable.
- The guts are totally open to the outside. There are metal pieces and cloth strings exposed. If you're careful with it, that probably won't matter, but it's the only volume pedal I've seen with this particular issue.
- I'm using this between my 8th and 9th pedal, so there is signal modification between my guitar and the pedal, but the volume is definitely audible at slightly-above-bottom position, which is more than I can say for the Morley (which I believe was 250k). The "volume swell" may not be good enough for ambient players, but it's the best I've seen so far, at least with my setup, which is why I call it a "pro".
- The pedal length is a con, but it's also a pro, because almost your whole foot makes contact with all of the pedal, which gives you greater control.
- It feels good under your feet, and seems to stick in place wherever you put it within the volume spectrum.
For the price, it's good. I'd be interested in checking out some $200+ volume pedals, but it just kills me to pay that much for a volume pedal! Are volume pedals really that difficult to make flexible?
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.
I recommend it!
