      I just bought this pedal a little over a week ago, and finally it came in the mail today (I'm currently living in South Korea). When I first took it out of the package, I was impressed with the sheer quality of the metal casing. This thing is built to last. It's a little heavy and bulky, but not to the point where it would become a chore to move around. The grip on the footpedal is perfect if you're like me and you tend to move around a lot when you play. I tested how easy it was for your foot to slip and for you to accidentally kill your set volume, and you'd pretty much have to fall on it for that to happen. The pedal itself is very sturdy, and it doesn't move until you want it to. I was anxious all day at work to try it out, and was excited to finally get the opportunity to plug it in and give it a whirl. Simply put, it does its job extremely well. Make you sure put it as the last pedal in your chain out to your amp so that it doesn't interfere with your gain. The minimum volume feature is extremely handy for ensuring you're never too quiet, and even while running some crushing low-end distortion through my ML-2 Metal Core pedal, it gave me dead silence when I put it to the upright position. Well worth the money if you're looking for durability and quality.

      I own three of these pedals, each one different in cosmetics. I run one of these pedals through my effects loop as a rhythm/lead boost. The oldest one worked great until it saw too much stage usage and was starting to go out on me. The next one had a different volume taper and had too much volume boost even when the knob was turned all the way. I had to put rubber feet under the back edge of the pedal to lesson the range to make it work for me. I later bought a third one as a backup and the same problem from the second one was amplified even worse, so bad that I can't even use it. I am currently in search of a better built, more consistant volume pedal.

            Comments about Morley Little Alligator Volume Pedal:

            I bought this pedal in 2005 as an alternative to the Ernie Ball volume pedal which broke when my bass player accidentaly stepped on it the wrong way (the poor pedal was in pieces). So, I gave this one a try. I have not experienced the degradation of tone that others have and the pedal works great for volume swells in my experience. I am not sure how others hook theirs up but I run mine through the effects loop along with my digital delay, chorus and metal distortion. Everything works as I want. I don't use it as the last in line either ... my delay pedal is last in line. No signal loss, tonal degradation or over amplification. Works like a charm. Also, this thing is built like a freakin tank! It might actually survive a nuclear explosion. Not going to test that theory.

            i've owned this pedal for a little more than a year now. it was a great addition to my pedal board. i usually leave it wide open otherwise it slightly takes away the tone of my guitar. i like to use it for fading in notes when doing solo songs like steve vai does on "whispering a prayer". the only problem i have is that it's not the best pedal for doing volume swells but i don't do that very often. this pedal is definitely a great buy if you're looking for something that won't make you go bankrupt. buy it now!

            Comments about Morley Little Alligator Volume Pedal:

            I bought this pedal used about a month ago and I'm not disapointed, but I'm also not in love with it. My intentions were to use it as a slight volume boost for leads and leave it down for rythms. Well the boost was alot more slight than I thought. I leave the minimum volume knob at about 10-11 o'clock and that helps a little bit. If you are looking for a volume pedal that allows you to get really good volume swells and all that, this is most likely not the pedal you are looking for.Overall it's built tough but it's not the greatest volume pedal you can buy. I would not buy this new! Save your pennies and get something better.

            I'll get right to the point:Personally, I enjoy using it. It's got a wonderful transition from a dead-silence to the full volume you would expect. It's built with a hard metal case so you could throw a brick at it and the most it would do is scratch the paint. I've owned this pedal for alittle over 2 years (perhaps longer, I forget) and my only complaint -sadly- is that you have to basically put some of your weight on the heel of the foot pedal to get it to stay in place. And even then it depresses back down.

            An Excellent Pedal

            Comments about Morley Little Alligator Volume Pedal:

            This volume pedal is flawless and built like a tank. No one seems to have problems with the electronics and it's tough construction should last as long as I keep playing. I use it for a volume cut, I raise the minimum volume about halfway so I can easily drop my volume for soft parts of the song. Works great, never had a problem. Needs to be the LAST pedal going into the amp so it won't interfere with your gain.

            Volume Pedal Review

            By Guitar Bob-J1.ro

            from Albany, OR

            Comments about Morley Little Alligator Volume Pedal:

            I would like to say that I have had no problems with this pedal. I do a lot of volume swells and have to say I do like the short travel. I tried it with a headset through an amp to listen for any noise when the pedal moved and it was pure clarity. Very nice. I had an Ernie Ball volume pedal but needed a replacement because of the noisy and faulty pot. Just wore out. Built very sturdy and heavy so it sits on the floor nicely and won't move. I have a pretty heavy foot being 6'4" and 254 lbs so I appreciate the sturdiness ha.ha. It really is only a volume pedal and not made for special effects. But the nice option is the adjustable volume for lead and rhythm so that is a nice bonus. For the money and quality I would recommend it. Course not everything is for everyone. Been playing for about 43 years so I have been through a few volume pedals and the optical circuitry is a cut above the old pot and string. Very nice item. Good luck in your musical endeavors.
