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.

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.
