Comments about Mission Engineering EP1-L6-BK Expression Guitar Pedal for Line 6:

How could they not have a toe button? I wanted to add this to the Helix as a wha but without the toe button it's difficult at best. Assign a button on the Helix? I don't think so...
Built very well but over-priced for a pedal with a jack and a pot. I'll pass, sent it back.

    Comments about Mission Engineering EP1-L6-BK Expression Guitar Pedal for Line 6:

    Built like a tank. Plug and play with my Line 6 Firehawk FX. Does everything expected.

    Note - The guy that complained about it not having a toe switch misses the point of an expression pedal. It doesn't need a switch. You assign the parameter to the pedal, save the patch in the state that you want it to default to when you switch to it, then the pedal does nothing until you actually use it, no matter where the pedal is at, up or down. But once you move the pedal, it is active and does its thing. A toe switch would just screw up the ease of use.

      Comments about Mission Engineering EP1-L6-BK Expression Guitar Pedal for Line 6:

      Works well with my Line 6 Firehawk FX. Well built metal construction. Does what it says it will do.

      Note that, on the Firehawk FX, you need to assign something to a pedal or everything will default to this pedal and the onboard pedal will do nothing. Once you assign something to a pedal, that gets sent to this pedal, the secondary pedal, and the onboard pedal goes back to being a vol/wah pedal as normal. For patches where I don't need a secondary pedal I just assigned the boost parameter of the default compression, or if I am using a comp pedal model, to a pedal and set the min/max to add 2db of boost, which works well in case I feel I need just a bit more presence in the middle of a song.

      You can assign a wah to this pedal, but it also stays on the onboard pedal so you end up with both pedals controlling the wah, so that doesn't make sense. Especially since this does not have a toe switch and the onboard one does. This is a limitation of the Firehawk and not the pedal. Other Line 6 models may or may not have this limitation, this is just my experience with the FH.

        I use this with my Line 6 M13 and it's been a seamless experience so far. This thing is built very heavy duty and is made in the US so I have no doubt it will last a life time. I would definitely buy it again if I had to. Very happy with it.

          Comments about Mission Engineering EP1-L6-BK Expression Guitar Pedal for Line 6:

          Tried using this pedal as a volume or wah controller for both an Eleven Rack and a Fractal AX-8. All pedal calibration procedures for the effects explictly followed, and still poor response from the pedal. I'd estimate that out of approximately 25 degrees total mechanical range, the desired effect takes place in about 3 degrees or less of pedal motion. In other words, it operates as a "hair trigger" device rather than an expression pedal. The Moog expression pedal is a better value, though the downside of that brand is the lightweight case (more prone to being kicked over). I'd still take Moog over this EP1 boat anchor. Don't waste your money.

            I have both the "plastic" Line 6 expression pedal and the Mission Line 6 pedal. The Mission pedal is a lot more durable. If you play a lot, get the Mission pedal; it is worth the extra money to have a pedal built like a tank. (Then carry your plastic one as a backup.)
