      Comments about Ernie Ball MVP Volume/Gain Expression Pedal:

      Boost sounds great, no change of tone throughout the sweep of the pedal. The volume sweep feels linear. Using the tuner out does not change the tone. If I could choose one pedal for the rest of my life, this is it.
      The boost sounded better than numerous other pedals, including a Scott Henderson RC Booster and a TS-808. Of course it was only through my personal gear, but it does speak VOLUMEs it.

        Excellent volume pedal, no coloring the sound plus getting additional expression with the boost control, very good for solos.

            Comments about Ernie Ball MVP Volume/Gain Expression Pedal:

            Love the feel and features. I don't need the gain boost with my current amp, tube, & pedal configuration. I have used it in the past though and it functions well. If there is any tone sucking, like several other volume pedals, I have not noticed it. Footprint is about 3.5" x 10". I have successfully used this for multi amp configurations by using the tuner out to another amp. (separate volume pedal for other amp.)

            Good Build Quality & Very Useful

            Comments about MVP Volume/Gain Expression Pedal:

            so far I'm enjoying this pedal. I'm utilizing it as a volume controller
            and it works perfectly for that. since it's place is the last position of
            my pedals, I can control the effects that I use and I don't have to
            bend down to tweak my pedals to get the right sound.
            the build quality seems to be very rugged and I wouldn't hesitate
            taking it along if I was gigging. so far no complaints and yes, I
            would recommend it to others looking for a pedal that's very useful
            for volume or gain control.

              It's just what you expect. Solid build, smooth operation. The minimum control seems to range from zero to unity, while the maximum control goes from unity to +20db. So you can use it as a traditional volume pedal, a variable clean boost, or for smith transitions between two set volume levels. Very Nice.

                Love it for volume swells and I also take advantage of the min volume so I can have a rhythm volume along with a max lead.

                  Comments about Ernie Ball MVP Volume/Gain Expression Pedal:

                  This volume pedal has a great, even volume swell. The addition of gain controls makes the volume pedal even more useful, however. When I'm playing bass, I sometimes want to increase volume for certain passages, but without the sudden change in tone that comes from an overdrive or boost pedal. This does that (I use a few different class D amps). Additionally, this allows me to have greater flexibility with my volume without needing to fiddle with my amp or bass' volume knobs while playing. On guitar, this can act as a nice, subtle boost that can push gain-ier amps (I use an Orange) into some sweet saturation. Great pedal.

                    Comments about Ernie Ball MVP Volume/Gain Expression Pedal:

                    I absolutely love this Pedal! This works with both active and passive audio signals without tone or volume suck. The minimum and maximum control allows you to adjust the range of your pedal, and will even add a boosted 20+ decibels of gain beyond 100%.

                    I personally use this at the beginning of my pedal chain for swells since it has a buffered preamp, and will be using an A/B pedal swapper to switch its position between first and last in the chain.

                    Im in love with this pedal. Check it out, see if it's the right fit for you!

                      Comments about Ernie Ball MVP Volume/Gain Expression Pedal:

                      The DC power jack could be located in a better position. The setup on my board had the input/output jack crossed. This interfered with the power jack. I made it work, but it was not ideal. Overall the design is great. It definitely sucks less tone than other Ernie Ball volume pedals.
