To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Feels good, good weight, nice and sensitive thanks to the pedal range. There is a problem though - you can adjust the range, but that simply reduces the lowest value. Unless you can use this something that calibrated it, the lowest value is 17 or 18 not zero. I thought this was a fault, so I ordered a replacement, and found it was just the same. So, if you use this plugged into your keyboard and you can't calibrate it, don't buy it.
Lucky I had an old Guitar rig kontrol 3 and was able to calibrate it.
For the money it’s a no-brainer but it is plastic (pretty tough tho) and more annoying for me is it’s hard-wired and rather none of my pedals/foot switches are.
Does the job fine though for what I needed, which is an expression pedal for my Fulltone Deja Vibe, which I found out, is a bit fussy about expression pedals. Neither my Yamaha or Mooer expression pedals worked with it so when it comes to buying expression pedals, the single most important factor is; does it work with my device?
That’s really annoying too. I have expression pedals I can’t use and had to buy this one as well but it’s so cheap I can happily throw it away when I finally find a good quality, jack plugged replacement that’s compatible.
In short.. lightweight tough plastic, big footprint, wire attached so chances are the cables too long but it’s all moulded so you can’t change it, looks horrible on my otherwise really cool pedalboard, doesn’t feel nice, worth every penny.
I bought this something like a year ago but never really used it until I recently got hold of a second hand G-Major 2 guitar fx rack. I use this as a send/return effect on a 32 channel console, especially for analogue synths (but also for vocals and anything else except guitar!). The pedal works really well (once calibrated, which was easy) with all the pedal-specific effects on the G-Major 2, and I particularly like the whammy and wah effects.
It seems reasonably solid, although it has a plasticky finish which makes it look flimsy. I'm also not 100% convinced by the gear mechanism inside - it looks like one hard stomp and it would fall off. As it happens I am controlling the pedal by hand but I'm thinking of buying another one, to use as a 'traditional' foot pedal on other keyboards. We'll have to see how long it lasts, as I am a tad heavy-footed.
At the price, though, these are almost commodities.
It works fine with my old Zoom GX3 and B2 processors. I'd given up on expression pedals as two Zoom pedals failed on me in quick succession. More robust than I was expecting from other reviews: I wouldn't want roadies jumping up and down on it but good enough. There was a picture of other inputs and outputs which is simply the wrong picture which is supposed to show the range adjuster. There is no tension adjuster but the resistance is adequate - a little loose for my taste.
This is budget expression pedal and the price reflects that. Having said that, it is well built and compatible with many devices (I haven't found one that it wont work with yet). The only thing that sets it aside from more expensive pedals is the feel of it when in use.....it's not very, well....expressive! The action is too loose and is easily knocked out of position with a glancing blow from your foot. Overall a good, reliable pedal for the price
This pedal works fine. It's got a nice smooth action, as well as a switch on the back for 'm-audio' and 'other'. It could be considered to be slightly ugly, if you put a lot of thought into what expression pedals are supposed to look like. That's probably why I didn't give it five stars, which isn't really very fair because it does everything else perfectly well, but then what do you expect from me? I'm calling it how I see it!
