Boss FV-500-H

Mono Volume PedalThe BOSS FV-500 is the worthy successor of the volume pedal classic FV 300.

The H version is designed with high impedance and is therefore designed for use between guitar and amp. Thanks to the Minimum knob you've practically got a rhythm preset available.

With its high-impedance design, the pedal is interesting for guitarists who want to control the volume of their guitar (and thus also the distortion of the amp) by pedal. The FV 500 fulfils this task - in contrast to most guitar potentiometers - practically without sound loss - particularly before the preamp of the amp! The tuner out is also very practical; With a connected tuner you can tune silently!

Very Good Pedal
19.02.2017
I bought this pedal to help create ambient swells and take the job away from my volume control on the guitar.
I did a bit of research, and the main reason I bought this particular pedal was that there was no power supply required. I have a behringer expression pedal that I had some difficulty with, mainly due to having to buy a separate power supply because when I ran it off the Harley Benton Powerplant, it wasn't a happy camper at all.
Anyway, the FV-500-H got great reviews online as far as volume pedals go, and, like I say, no power supply required.
I didn't have any problem with it at all until I bought a BCB-60 pedal board, when I was disappointed to discover that it is that little bit too big to fit inside, even after removing the particular part that would allow for a wah pedal or some such. No big deal, as I would've had to evict more important pedals to allow for it anyway.
The FV-500 is reasonably heavy, quite sturdy, and feels just fine under foot. It is possible to adjust the overall feel and indeed even the volume range. Overall, I am quite happy with this purchase because it is of great quality and does exactly what it is supposed to do.

Recurring issue with scratchy pots
B-K , 30.05.2019
I bought this item as it was continually listed as the most solid / reliable of guitar volume pedals. I use it for ambient swells / home recording. First impression of the pedal is that it is very big & heavy & takes up a lot of room on a board. It doesn't require power, which is a plus. It is very easy to use, after a bit of practice. However, about 5-6 months after purchase it began to sound scratchy when engaged - something that showed up clearly on quieter recordings. I sent it for service - good response from Thomann / Boss. I got it back & it worked fine - again, until about 4 months of playing. It's been well taken care of, used indoors etc, but the issue with scratchy pots returned. From what I've researched, it seems difficult to open this pedal / clean it myself. I would recommend investing a bit more for something reliable.

Durable + Very Responsive
21.01.2016
This is definatly one of the better expression/volume pedals on the market for an affordable price, it seems to be right in the middle of everything in terms of price range and for me it works perfectly. I use it with a moog delay as an expression pedal and it accents and manipulates the repetitions of the delay very accuratley sending the delays in subtle at the start to an almost endless cosmic dealy sound.There is a knob on the bottom left of the pedal that you can adjust to have the expression/volume control more or less sensitive.If your are going to use this guy as an expression pedal be sure to have a stereo jack to stereo jack cable, using a normal jack to jack the pedal will only funtion as a volume pedal. As a volume pedal it works great if you want to ad more volume at different sections of a song at a live gig or if your guitar is clean sounding you can sound like a violin. This pedal is passive too so you do not need to plug it in and its built to last.

This is my first volume pedal... After a long period of comparing volume pedals I decided to go for this one, and I am glad I did. I am still in the experimental fase, but for now I use it just after my guitar, to control the amount of gain going from a more or less clean tone until a raoring beast. That is where the control for minimum volume is very handy. This thing is build to last for a long musical relationship. One obstacle I encountered is that the tuner output is not accessible for angled connector cables (at least for mine...). I still have to integrate it into a pedal board, and I hope it is not too heavy... Anyways, this is one of the must have pedals and still for a reasonable price. Gain/volume control and still having your both hands available to play: it's a keeper
