        I was using two Mission pedals which are built like a brick until after about 4 months of use, one pedal was flopping toward the toe position. The adjustment on the pedal didn't work as advertised; I needed a reliable pedal. With the EV-5, it's much, much lighter than the mission but stays in place. The EV-5 has a longer throw, which I actually found out, I preferred. No problem configuring it with my MPC 101 controller. Was up and running in less than 5 minutes. I can't speak about the long term use yet.
        Uses: Volume and Wah Wah
        Cons: I wish I was able to put my own TRS cable into the unit.

        If you are an Axe Fx user, you might want to try these out. I paid way too much for the mission pedals, only to be very, very disappointed for my purposes. Mission does make pedals that are spring loaded and return the pedal to the heel position. I can't speak about those pedals, as I've never tried them.

        EV5 Short Expression Travel

        The EV5 only transmits 0-127 CC data over the toe-down 50% of its travel, leaving a large heel-down zone (the other 50%) with nothing going on. So it instantly loses half it's potential for expression. This makes it tricky to use on two fronts - the travel that produces data is shallow - but I'm sure most musicians will have an inate understanding of how thrown the player is by the fact the data transmiting range isn't spread over the entire travel of the pedal.

          Comments about Roland EV-5 Expression Pedal:

          Universal expression pedal. Great for use with the RT-20 as a rotary speed control. Great with loop stations for manipulating tempo. Basically this will work with most/any pedal or device which has the option to control functions using an expression pedal. Simple.

            Comments about Roland EV-5 Expression Pedal:

            Bought this for use with my old Boss ME-8 pedal board. Works perfectly and , truth be told, should have been sold with the ME-8 since it is crucial to controlling volume and wah. Must have been a price cutting measure. As others have mentioned , it is very plastic and very light . Very happy with the purchase as it does what it's supposed to and does it very well.

            The long cord is a definite plus. The pedal also stays stationary without sliding.

                Using this with a Boss DD7 delay. Works great. I use it to control delay time, can be used in other ways with this pedal. It's mostly plastic but know users who've had them working fine for years.

                Comments about Roland EV-5 Expression Pedal:

                I bought this pedal to use with my Boss RT-20 Rotary Ensemble (which is an awesome pedal in of itself ! I recommend every guitar player get one.) The only thing I don't like about the EV-5 is that it is made of plastic. I would have liked metal construction. It performs flawlessly in controlling the rotary's speed in real time. Two thumbs up !

                Comments about Roland EV-5 Expression Pedal:

                I've had this for about 12 months now and its working well. The construction is a little flaky by BOSS standards and the connecting cable feels cheap. The cheap plastic does make the pedal light though which is great if you're lugging around a lot of gear! But otherwise they should really have used better quality components or this pedal should be cheaper.

                This has to be about the least expensive Roland-Boss tool you can buy, yet it does exactly what it is supposed to do and apparently lasts forever. I have had mine for years, have used it with various roland-boss devices, and have never had any problems at all.
