Fender Volume-Tone Pedal Reissue : moosers's user review
The Fender Volume Tone is a volume pedal made for electric guitars and basses. It is quite basic in make up and is pretty much the same as most volume pedals out there. It has 1/4 inch connections and doesn't require a power supply or battery because it is a volume pedal and isn't rack mountable.
Like most volume pedals are, the Fender Volume Tone is incredibly easy to use. Simply plug your guitar into the input and your amp into the output and you are good to go. All you have to do is press the pedal all way down to turn the volume all the way down and press it up to keep the volume up. This provides you with a ton of options beyond just basic volume drops as it can be used in a variety of different creative ways.
While the Fender Volume Tone doesn't have a sound of its own, it is good to know that this pedal won't color your sound at all and simply will give you control over your volume with your foot. I tend to use the pedal for a few different effects beyond just turning the volume up or down. This pedal is great for volume swells for electric guitar and especially for lap steel and pedal steel and can also give you a pretty cool tremolo sound but you have to constantly move the pedal up and down to do this, which can be somewhat difficult. The bottom line is that the Fender Volume Tone won't change the sound of your original signal, which is all you can really ask for in a volume pedal.
I've been using the Fender Volume Tone on and off for a few years and it is definitely an adequate volume pedal. It is well built and has the Fender label so you know you are getting a good product. If you are looking for a reasonably priced volume pedal, you really can't do wrong with the Fender Volume Tone.
