Just so everyone knows, this volume pedal is designed for instruments that produce active signal. For the most part, guitars produce a passive signal. Unless of course you have active pickups. If your guitar doesn't require a battery then it's passive, in which case you should consider a different pedal! If you don't believe me look at the description that says "active volume pedal" The potentiometer has a 25k ohm resistance suitable for the audio path of active instruments or buffered effect returns. A passive pickup requires at least a 250K resistance. I'm not saying this won't work with passive pickups, I'm just saying it's not designed for it.

Junk

Very first use, noisy crackling dirty volume pot. Had to return. Ruined my faith in the brand.

Excellent pedal for keyboards, exceptional build quality

By Joseph Valerio

Comments about Ernie Ball VP Junior 25K Active Volume Pedal:

I purchased this pedal to control volume on my Yamaha PSR-S550 keyboard. There were many choices but after a lot of research I selected the Ernie Ball VP Junior 25K. I expected the build quality to be good and it is in fact quite remarkable! I am an engineer by profession and this pedal is made from solid billet aluminum. The fit and finish are fantastic. The action is silky-smooth on the bearing. Yes, this pedal relies on a cord and spring arrangement to control a potentiometer but as a design/maintenance engineer I would probably go the same route. This pedal is easily maintainable! As for the control of volume, it works quite well. The action is almost linear with more sound increase going on at a faster rate towards the end of the pedal travel, but this is to be expected. After about two hours of use I got used to it pretty nicely. Audio quality is clean, I can detect no tone problems or static/distortion at all, at least to my ears. It's as solid as a brick from all standpoints. A winner.

Works perfectly with M9

By alex coydan

from Burien, WA

Comments about Ernie Ball VP Junior 25K Active Volume Pedal:

Got this pedal to work as an expression pedal for my Line 6 M9. It was totally plug and play. I didn't have to futz with the settings at all to make it work.
This thing is built like a tank.
Great price great value. I'm already considering getting another one.

Good but...

By BBabs

Comments about Ernie Ball VP Junior 25K Active Volume Pedal:

This volume pedal works great, nice and smooth. However, the string the spins the potentiometer broke on mine. They really should have used a heavier string or plastic coated cable. Now I have to figure out how to take apart the thing and get a new string in there. Also, it is a bit expensive for what it is. I do really like the solid metal construction though.

Bass Volume Pedal

By lowtones-VG5Uj

from Rohnert Park, CA

Comments about Ernie Ball VP Junior 25K Active Volume Pedal:

I switch between electric upright, five-string and for string basses and need to do it quickly. So the ability to make volume adjustments on the fly was my primary reason for purchasing this pedal. And silent tuning is a nice benefit too. This is a smooth, solid pedal and I notice no noise at all, running it through the effects loop of my amp. A very well made product with a lifetime repair plan.

Great as an expression pedal

By SneakyT

Comments about Ernie Ball VP Junior 25K Active Volume Pedal:

This thing makes a great expression pedal for the Line 6 M9/M13. Solid build as I expected since I already use the 6166 as a volume pedal. They are easy to fix as well if and when a pot goes bad or a kevlar string breaks.

It Breaks after not very long

By Lele

from Venezuela

See all my reviews

Comments about Ernie Ball VP Junior 25K Active Volume Pedal:

I bought this pedal and have been using it as an expression pedal for my Line 6 M13 effects processor. It works great with the M13, however I started to have some accuracy problems with the values since the pedal wouldn't give me the exact value on the top position everytime. After 8 months of using it the string broke! what a bad design this is! I don't want to have a pedal that I have to repair every few months!! Ernie ball should think better and redesign this thing!

Comments about Ernie Ball VP Junior 25K Active Volume Pedal:

So I bought this pedal to use for ambiance effects. It definitely does it's job. I can see why some people might worry that the pedal's sweep is controlled with a string. If one doesn't abuse, I think it should be ok. One this I want readers to know is the there is some bleed in the sound when the pedal is all the way. It's still very usable, but just be aware
