The other two reviewers are, simply, wrong. You can use any power supply - I have it hanging off my one spot, with all my other pedals. And as far as the taper, for swells, just don't put it first in the chain, or - same as an Ernie Ball or other pedal - it interacts with your guitar volume and that screws up the taper. Plus if you put it last, it doesn't change your distortion, etc., it just makes them louder or softer. If it is before the distortion, it changes the amount of drive when you use it. Much better after.In fact, you can use it first if you adjust the taper by bending the LED's up and down or widening the little slot that lets the LED shine through (two common mods)

The perfect volume pedal!

By Greg Conway

from Los Angeles

Comments about Mini Morley Volume Guitar Effects Pedal:

Solid construction, great feel, super smooth and quiet, no noticeable coloration of guitar tone.
Love this pedal! Perfect size for my board. Super clean and smooth. I can't understand some of the reviews that say this is more like an on/off switch than a volume pedal. I am able to do very smooth swells with it and the feel and taper are perfect for me. The Mini Morley Volume Pedal is unbeatable for the price and maybe any price!

Great Volume Pedal

By Scott Beck

from Sedona, AZ

Comments about Mini Morley Volume Guitar Effects Pedal:

Great investment - would replace it in a heartbeat.
I've been using this pedal for about a month now, and it's flawless. Nice, small imprint takes little space on my pedal board, and the pedal is smooth and easy to to get great swells. Just a very strong, well-made pedal by Morley.

    Comments about Mini Morley Volume Guitar Effects Pedal:

    Fits well on a pedal board and has a bombproof design. Doesn't taper off over the whole range of the pedal. I know that this can be adjusted in some of the Morleys by moving the LEDs in relation to the hole, but this one appears to be fixed. Eventually I am going to try modifying the shape of the hole to get a smoother taper.
    I like it. It does the job. Could be better without too much effort on Morley's part.

    Comments about Mini Morley Volume Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I recently changed out my ancient Dunlop passive volume pedal (from the 70's) for this Morley mini .
    WOW sooooooo much quieter ! I wouldn't call it mini though it takes up as much real estate on my pedal board as the one I took off but all in all a really great pedal .

        Comments about Mini Morley Volume Guitar Effects Pedal:

        Had the pedal a short while and haven't had time to fool with it much. The only thing I have to compare it to is an EB VP Junior. Seems like the odd noises in my signal chain have cleared with the Morley. There seems to be concern about powering the Morley with a pedal board. All the specs seem to line up with my Gator board power and I've had no problems with hum or whatnot. The stroke on the volume is shorter than EB, but I think it's just something you got to practice with and it'll be ok.

        Comments about Mini Morley Volume Guitar Effects Pedal:

        This is a nicely designed pedal except for its abrupt and short volume swell. The volume is off in heal down position and does not start to increase in volume until the last 25% of pedal through toe down . it would be a great pedal if it had a gradual increase through the whole traverse from heal down to toe down . It is well built. I improved mine by carefully enlarging the slots that allow the LED light to pass to the sensor.

        Do not buy this pedal. It's a piece of junk.

        By Luckyvin

        from Connecticut

        Comments about Mini Morley Volume Guitar Effects Pedal:

        I play organ (CX-3). I have used the same Morley volume pedal for 15 years. I never had a problem. I bought this pedal for its smaller footprint on my pedal board. Here's the problem: You can't use your power supply that powers the rest of your pedals. You need to specifically use the Morley power supply. Without the Morley power supply the pedal destroys your signal completely. What was Morley thinking by requiring the use of only their power supply? In addition, this pedal does not really act as a volume pedal. It's more of just an on/off switch. Either the volume is off or all the way on. This pedal is absolute junk.

        A simple volume pedal. Does what it's supposed to do, raise and lower the volume. No more, no less.
        So far, so good.

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Mini Morley Volume Guitar Effects Pedal:

        I was looking for a volume pedal for swells and an occasional bump in volume and I saw this thinking well thats cool and a good value, well I was surprised when I first tried it to see what this pedal really did. This pedal is good for one this mainly and that is engaging and disenganging a line. The way I have it set up is to turn the volume on for a second stereo line, works just great for that, but anything else such as swells or volume increase. So before buying be aware of the limited effects this pedal has.

          Love the small footprint. Compact enough for my Pedaltrain Metro 24 board. Works as it should. Adds a slight boost when fully engaged. Has a good sweep despite its size. Nice and responsive like a good volume pedal should be. Only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because the lack of a tuner-out. I use mine on my bass setup. Built solid as a rock. The price is awesome. Cant beat it for the money.

              Couldn't wait to get this in the mail and when I did I plugged it in and was highly disappointed no control at all. The volume would not kick in till the pedal was pushed down to about 75 %. I tried all the adjustments per Morley and still could not get an even swell. The volume would come in then wham full volume. I honestly worked on adjustments for over two hours I never could get an even swell. It's going back today. But I must say the staff a Morley were great.

              I needed a volume pedal to control backing track volume going to a PA from a tablet. So far, This volume pedal is very quite; does not add noise or scratch sounds like potentiometer volume pedals tend to do as they get older. Very compact and easy to store. I like the small amount of travel from off to highest volume, since it takes minimal effort to go back and forth between off and maximum volume. (One of the few things still made in USA)

                  Comments about Mini Morley Volume Guitar Effects Pedal:

                  Had mixed feelings about this mini volume pedal from some reviews I have read, but so glad that I took a chance!
                  It works great!
                  Fits right in the pedalboard and uses the same polarity 9-Volt adapter plug as Boss or any popular brand.

                  Many have expressed bad reviews on it not having enough travel, and while it is not identical to most volume pedals, you will get used to it really fast, and sometimes appreciate the short travel for a quick up or down volume level change.

                  The volume pedal will never get scratchy or dirty in the signal path because they use light and a sensor to control the volume level for a smooth and dust-free operation for the life of the pedal.

                  Some people are even modding the optical sensor inside to allow for more travel.

                  I have played guitar full time professionally for over 28 years and this mini-Morley has my seal of approval even though I think Morley wah-wah pedals suck! lol.

                  Personally I have not seen another mini pedal like this and I a very glad they made it!

                  It does not alter any tone or levels inherently in your signal path. No buzz, humm, hiss, noise, scratchy pots, the pedal does not squeak and feels solid and durable.

                  I would buy this again in a heartbeat and recommend it to anybody who needs to save real estate in their rigs and on their pedalboards.

                  Thank you Morley.

                    This pedal is very compact and I can get it on my pedal board with my other pedals. It controls volume optically unlike most other pedals which use "pots". You get a much cleaner sweep of sound with the optical design. I have another, larger, Morley pedal which I modified according to articles you find on the internet. This provides a much cleaner sweep from low to high and not the sudden jump from low to high volume as per factory setting.
