OVERVIEW

High-quality universal expression pedal for keyboards, synthesizers, and instrument pedals.

The EP-3 is a robust and reliable universal expression pedal designed to work with any keyboard, synthesizer, or pedal with an expression or CV input. It features a newly designed cam system with extremely smooth performance and durability, a polarity switch that ensures compatibility with non-Moog products, a scalable output knob for specifying musical range, and a ¼" output jack on the front panel that allows you to use the supplied 6.5' cable, or select a different cable length that perfectly suits your needs.

The EP-3 is built to withstand the rigors of daily abuse and touring, while providing the action and feel you need for precise, musical expression. When paired with Minifooger or Moogerfooger analog effects, the EP-3 unlocks new dimensions of sonic possibilities.

FEATURES
  • Universal expression pedal
  • Extremely smooth performance and durability
  • Output level knob
  • External polarity switch
  • Built tough to withstand heavy use and travel

I own 5 of these pedals which I use for Expression and as Sustain for my Synths and Guitar Effects Pedals. The Quality of build is Moog Tough and for the price of these you cannot beat that to it's competitors. They are nice and heavy too so they sit nicely on the floor without sliding around on you like those cheap plastic ones. The unversatality of them helps me move them easily from one synth to the next and so forth. I prefer a pedal like this because it allows me to create a long droned out pad on a synth without have to keep my foot on a piano style or switch style sustain pedal and just let it drone forever. I'm probably going to be purchasing more in the future as the Synth collection continues to grow..

I purchased this in 2015 and it only worked twice. I thought it was just *me* using or connecting it wrong or that there was a polarity issue involved. I thought it was just user error because the issue would appear to resolve depending upon whether the keyboard was turn on prior to connecting it. after trying to connect it every different way possible, I have determined that this is a faulty unit that I received. Very unhappy, but more unhappy that I did not realize it until now because of infrequent use of the instrument it was connected to.

Bad

By Will

from Eastern NC

About Me Experienced

Comments about Moog EP-3 Universal Expression Pedal:

Maybe I'm using it wrong. But I doubt it, considering how someone else had the same problem- it works in reverse and that is uncomforatble (no, that's not the polarity switch issue). It's also huge, so you have to sumise a Captain Morgan stance to use it. The external knob doesn't do much.

I don't write reviews on things saying they are bad often. I usually try to find some good in them. Not this one. Sorry :/

TREMENDOUS improvement over the EP-1

Comments about Moog EP-3 Universal Expression Pedal:

I'm NOT usually an "early adopter", but I made an exception when the MF101 debuted. One of its most enticing aspects was real-time control over the parameters via expression pedal(s), so I was heartbroken by the EP-1's flimsy build. It lasted 15 yrs., though, about 14 1/2 more than I expected. Here's hoping the apparently-very-well-built EP-3 isn't the converse of that, because it meets the MF101's needs precisely, no compromise.

Works well, seems built like a tank. Big & Heavy - will take up space and add lbs. to my pedal board...

Smooth action, does what it should. Good piece of equipment for price

      Comments about Moog EP-3 Universal Expression Pedal:

      I love the EP-3 expression pedal.I recently purchased A Moogerfooger MF-103 6/12 Phaser and absolutely love the warm organic atmospheric soundscapes and otherworldly tones the MF-103 accomplishes.So I got the EP-3 pedal and started messing with the best use for it which seems to be the Rate knob-I have heard reviewers complaints that the pedal they have works in reverse,fortunately the pedal works great -as you press toe-down it increases the intensity & what I Love is the gradual mid-tones that are very provocative and usefull.Very similiar to my Dunlop Rotovibe in that respect of intensity.Another useful tool is the knob on the side that fluctuates the intensity.I love this little pedal

        Comments about Moog EP-3 Universal Expression Pedal:

        This is an expression pedal. I bought it for use with the Moog ClusterFlux. Does exactly what it's supposed to do. There were previous complaints by other customers that it appeared to be "backwards" in its function. At the very least, the newer version has a switch on the bottom to reverse-polarize the pedal's use (the older version does not, but no longer a worry if you are buying new). This is a non-powered pedal - so no input voltage is required (or even possible - which, for me, is a plus. Pedal is solid as a rock, does exactly what it's advertised to do, and would definitely recommend it to anyone - as long as they can read, and understand what they want (I know it's asking a lot…)

        Comments about Moog EP-3 Universal Expression Pedal:

        I bought this to use with a Boss PS-6. It doesn't work with it and made the PS-6 behave oddly even after it was unplugged. PS-6 has since returned to normal. I've seen forum posts that mention this pedal won't work with other Boss pedals as well. But I haven't tried it with anything but the PS-6.

        The pedal itself is very well built and has a smooth sweep. For its price it's a great value.

        I ended up buying the M-Audio EX-P which works great with the Boss and is cheaper in price but also much, much lower in quality. I bought the MF 2 year coverage for ten d0llar$ so price-wise it's a wash.

          Comments about Moog EP-3 Universal Expression Pedal:

          This is the best expression pedal for the money. The EP-3 has a very smooth action, which can be adjusted very quickly and easily. Now my MF Boost can be used as a volume pedal and my MF Drive can be used as a dirty fuzz wah from space.

            I use this with my Nord Electro 2 for volume and wah. Much better than the Roland pedal that is almost twice as much. Detachable cord is a plus also!
