    SOUND QUALITY

    I was looking for a pedal effects "violoning" what I did before with the volume knob of my instruments, sometimes a few crackles (ge the electronics) and irrgularits ... placed between my instrument (bass or guitar) and my prampli, I can also play on the degree of saturation ... Gnial. In addition, it is absolutely "transparent".

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I was looking for a volume pedal for a long time, and I look in the many manufacturers catalog to return the legendary Ernie Ball, and do not regret it. It is solid, versatile, virtually unbreakable and does not color the sound. And that's all we ask. The price ... very, may be too expensive, find the opportunity. But that's the price to pay for transparency and versatilit.

    I for 1 year and I find it great product. Very nice finish manufacturing is the Rols Royce of expression pedals.
    Given its size, it has to be indestructible.
    It is a little chre, but when back there the quality ...
    In addition it does not need "no power. The jack of the instrument enough.
    I remake this purchase if the need arose.
    Sincerely
  • Excellent, and neutral.

    Analog volume pedal, passive, with a small switch to move from passive to active guitar if desired. There is also an outlet for connecting a tuner, which may also allow to turn the pedal pedal / progressive b. Jack in, jack out and roll youth!

    UTILIZATION

    Nothing complicated, if we finally summarizes the guys put the volume knob of a guitar, and pressing the pedal plate, a string that makes the knob turn in one direction or the other is rotated . Bought secondhand, so no manual, but really not rocket science. The top is wide, so foot clown is very significant, and the race is long and perfectly manageable.

    SOUND QUALITY

    It works the same with bass, guitar, keyboards, and anything with a jack .. It is very neutral in sound, so perfect for what we want. The volume control is surgical, with a delay for violoning is perfection.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 3 months, I'm not disappointed! 100 balls for a volume it may seem expensive, but the quality of sound, and the object (weight, comfort) are well worth the. I tried lots of critters volume pedal plastic to brands like Morley, here we are really in the class above.

    Volume pedal with 2 modes (small switch in) Wholesale plays the gain or volume.

    UTILIZATION

    Nothing to say

    SOUND QUALITY

    Nickel.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Frankly, long satisfied until the string causing the knob breaks. The repair kit is not expensive but a real shit to change.
    Like the little switch to change modes (play on the gain or volume wholesale) to release net.
    So a solid frame with the still fragile.
    It would have to rewire itself by transferring all intermediate between the knob and jacks (connectors 2 balls).
    Not on the purchase even need to change. ...

    What a volume pedal, there is not much to say.
    Ultra rugged as any metal, long race for a rather fine tuning.
    In addition to the input and output to insert in the chain of effects, there is another outlet to connect a tuner (some will find there may be another use)

    It's passive so no power

    UTILIZATION

    Again this is a volume pedal, and it is the reference, at least for me.

    SOUND QUALITY

    This is a volume pedal, I tell you! Basically I cut the sound! and I put the sound! I ente or two stops. I did not notice any degradation of sound.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Purchased in 2007, unless they need money I do not see why I divide them.

    Purchased in 2007, unless they need money I do not see why I divide them.
    on the other hand I think for such a purchase occasion is sufficient because it is expensive new.
    Less than falling on a marmoset, difficult to damage or wear.

  • Exactly the job!

    Volume pedal everything simple.
    Completely analog, works without batteries.
    Input and output jack + a tuner output
    Not in its zero position at 100% of stroke: 100% sound.
    Ultra transparent, ultra strong ... and heavy ... and big ... but suddenly it does not move!
    There is a small black switch inside the pedal that can go from a stroke volume rather gradual or very fast on the end of that race. the pedal is not limp it offers some resistance (but not too much) which is very nice.
    WARNING: This pedal is provided at the base for a passive instrument with an active volume can not go to zero.
    EXCEPT: If you plug the pedal in the effects loop (in my case) and there, no problem.

    EXCEPT: If you plug the pedal in the effects loop (in my case) and there, no problem.

    UTILIZATION

    Bought used so no manual, I think that there is no need if it is to learn the existence of the small switch in the pedal.
    Operation of the product could not be more simple: no editing (Nan but a volume pedal, do not fool around either)

    SOUND QUALITY

    As mentioned earlier pedal completely transparent.
    In there the very practical aspect to adjust my volume for some piano passages, we can make great "violonings" and coupled with reverb and delay it to the top of the water!
    I use a warwick streamer (active) plugged into amp ashdown abm evo III + abm210t and 115 cabinets and all sorts of effects including reverb and delay so but a rat.
    The pedal is plugged into my effects loop.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Nothing to say I think this series volume pedal is simply the best one out there, never seen real competitors.
    I've seen other volume pedals among fellow guitarist (line6, boss) and they had more balls to see the poor quality of manufacture: they are usually super lightweight plastic and very fragile.
    The price is certainly more expensive but if you want a volume pedal to keep all this life to serve as cover for his crate when we tinker or just to stun people, just wait a secondhand and you will not be disappointed promised.

  • Volume control by foot!

    Ernie Ball 6166 250K Mono Volume Pedal for use with Passive ElectronicsPublished on 08/01/12 at 07:47
    This is a volume pedal. Plain and simple. You don't need editing options, digital conversions, thoughts whether it's best with a tube or a transistor. This is pure analog. You get a 1/4" inputs, output and tuner jack. It says 'Tuner Out' on the pedal, but it is in fact just a parallel signal, so you could actually use this, as a passive split, should you feel the need for that.

    UTILIZATION

    I bought this pedal, as I was tired of the impracticality of using the volume knob on my guitar, when doing volume swells and such. Throwing this baby into the chain made it so much easier.

    I bought this pedal, as I was tired of the impracticality of using the volume knob on my guitar, when doing volume swells and such. Throwing this baby into the chain made it so much easier.
    It couldn't be any easier to set it up too. Take the jack from you guitar, plug it into the input of the pedal. Take the output of the pedal and send it to your amp, or the next effect in the chain. Simple as that!

    I use a G-system and run one 6166 volume pedal in front of the G and one using the build in volume pedal expression jack in the G. This gives me the option, to kill my input volume and let a delay tail die out on its own, or lower the volume in general. This is a really neat trick, if you'r using guitars with different outputs don't want to change settings on e.g. your drive pedal.

    SOUND QUALITY

    This is were you might find some issues. I've not experienced it myself, even though I'm a huge sucker for tone, but some people complain about the fact, that this pedal takes away some of your treble signal, when pulled slightly back. Some have also complained about the parallel output (tuner) to suck away some tonal quality to the main signal. I haven't experienced that myself neither. It might all just come down to a matter of buffers in the setup (and partially also some psychological factors).

    OVERALL OPINION

    If you want a sturdy and practically unbreakable volume pedal, without any unnecessary options, then you should go for this one! It's build out of a solid block of aluminum, so it won't break even under heavy stress. The weak link is the string pulling the pot internally, but for as little as $10 (tops) you'll have it fixed again. You can even do it yourself. You pay a bit more, when buying it new, compared to other volume pedals, but you'll be glad you did! If you need it in stereo - don't worry. Ernie Ball got you covered to.

    Does not change the sound at all, this is a very good volume pedal. I use it as a pedal just before the amp input. I never tried to put her in the loop.

    I use it for some years. Very useful in concert, at home.
