That being said, this is as nice as the nicest I have used. The action is smooth and it feels solid, better than any I have tried up to $100. The attached TRS cable is a bit flimsy but if treated respectfully it should hold up to gigging use. Used a a volume pedal, I find it a smoother sweep with my Katana 100 using Roland GA-FC than the Boss. It just works great. How it holds up will probably have a lot to do with how respectfully I treat it. It’s money well spent IMO. I have also used the NEKTAR run/stop and I think this company offers exceptional value and quality for a very low purchase price.

So I’m using a Yamaha MODX synth, plug in to port 2 on the synth (not port 1). Set the switch on the base to 2. Turn the trim dial all the way down and hey presto, works perfectly. Can now control the Super Knob via this expression pedal, which (if you’ve not tried this) is so useful. It literally changes the way you perform.
As for the pedal..the base frame section is plastic, but part of the upper section (the pivotable pedal assembly) is constructed of metal, plastic and rubber, giving the pedal a pretty comfortable feel and a nice bit of weight. Actually it’s surprisingly well weighted for the price and a joy to use. There’s plenty of cable, so no issues there. The packaging was good and everything works as it should. Other than the plastic frame around the base (which is the flimsiest part) I can’t think of anything negative (bearing in mind the price). Definitely a recommended purchase over the pricey alternative.
However it failed massively for me when controlling the modulation capability on my Yamaha MOXF8 keyboard. Often the sound would get stuck on a higher pitch, and I had to rescue the situation by adjusting the modulation wheel using my hand, then reset the pedal to the starting position.
This is a big problem in any situation, especially live performances.
In th end I went for the Yamaha FC 7 pedal - it's much heavier, it has more precise control, it grips the floor better and yes, it's three times the price. But it's reliable and robust.
It's very sturdy and solid feeling despite being made of plastic (which makes it very lightweight)
The tracking works really well and is smooth across the range, when used to control delay time for example it ramps up smoothly and evenly without jumping or missing points in the range, meaning it will go evenly from 0 - 100 without quickly jumping up or down that range, which is great as there are far more expensive pedals that aren't capable of this!
I'd definitely recommend this pedal and already have to other musician friends, I use 2 exp pedals for my board currently and I'll likely replace my other more expensive one with another one of these!
Nice to have adjustable bit on the side so you can tailor it to your unit.
I found it works with the Line 6 with the pot wound back about a 1/3rd
Small form factor but feels sturdy in use and hasn't caused any glitches or issues.
I would have preferred a jack input rather than a fixed cable though as you're tied to the length.
Not long enough for stage, too long to put on a pedalboard l (theres a fair amount of excess).
Although for the price you can't complain. It does exactly the same as my Fractal Audio expression pedal at a 10th of the price.
