built like a Boss

Total rating

To be honest, it is a really large pedal, so you will need a lot of space on your pedal board. However, it is absolutely worth it. A volume pedal does not have to come with al lot of features. It has to do, what it is named after, and nothing else.
Apart from the regular in and outputs it has a separated tuner out, and a knob to regulate the minimal volume. That's it and there is no need for more. No losing of signal quality, no noises, only the regulation of your signal's volume.
The regulation feels well, not too easy and not too hard :)

Best and Most Solid!

Total rating

this is the best and most solid volume pedal I have ever owned, I have used one of these for 4 years straight as a volume and swell pedal on my guitar rig with a TC Electronic Nova System. It is very accurate and I have found that other pedals tend to "sink" a little which means when you adjust the pedal with your foot your volume goes up or goes down which can be very frustrating for quite work! This one does not. It have remained sold for all that time, so much so that I bought another one for adjusting the Nova Systems parameters via another FV500. Now I can adjust with great accuracy the amount of Delay in the Mix! I would highly recommend this pedal for solid build and reliable simple mechanics.

Built like a tank, this is the CC/volume pedal to get

Total rating

I got this for my Kurzweil PC3x. Been using it for over a year now and I love the thing.
This thing is as durable as it gets. I've been using this live and in studio. I'll never get any other CC pedal. At first I thought the price was a bit high, but when I got the pedal I realized it'll last forever.

The minimum volume knob should be a bit stiffer IMO, it's quite easy for it to accidentally turn and change your settings. This is easily fixed with a piece of tape though.

If you're looking for a good quality CC/volume pedal that'll last you basically forever, this is the one to get!

A tank!

Total rating

As the title says, this thing is a tank. Pretty much indestructable, and ready for the road.
On the downside, all the stability is compromised by a lot of weight and a big footprint. I personally like the big size, since you can not miss it with your foot, even when on stage and there is a lot going on.
This one is the version for low impedance, the high impedance version is the FV-500-H. The L-version would be used (in a guitar rig) after a buffer or in the effects loop of an amplifier. Keyboarders should always get the low impedance version.
The H-version is only suitable if you use the pedal as the first one in your guitar or bass chain.
The pedal has a lot of features, it´s stereo, can be used as a standard expression pedal (can control almost everything), has a minimal volume option and even a tuner out.
So if you buy it, you can be sure to always find good use for the pedal.

The price is totally fair, since it will last a lifetime!
