Comments about Ernie Ball VP Junior 25K Active Volume Pedal:
-Extremely durable pedal, the treadle is smooth and moves exactly the same as the day I purchased it, which was 4-5 years ago now
-Very cheap and easy to fix. If the potentiometer dies, it's three wires to re-solder onto a new pot (purchased from Ernie Ball). If the string breaks, you just string up a new one (also purchassed from Ernie Ball).
-Smooth travel, stays where you set it
-Completely passive, no batteries to die or corrode internally, no annoying power requirements
-Also works as an expression pedal when used with certain effects such as Eventide (PitchFactor, TimeFactor, ModFactor) or Line 6 (M13/M9)
-The tuner out is wired in parallel to the output jack, which will degrade your tone if you use it
This volume pedal has served me extremely well over the years. I can't stress enough how important it is to get the right pedal for your setup though.
Get the 6181 (25k) pedal if:
-Your instrument is active and you put your volume pedal first
-You put your volume pedal at the end of your chain and have buffered bypass pedals (Such as BOSS) or pedals that are always-on (like a compressor)
Get the 6180 (250k) pedal if:
-Your instrument is passive and you put your volume pedal first
