Classics Live AgainThough not as well known for their pedals as they are for their guitars and basses, Fender has been making classic pedals for more than 50 years. Following the recent re-issue of the Fender Blender Custom pedal, Fender decided to launch a range of new classic-inspired stompboxes with some vintage tones and looks. Let’s take a closer look….

The reissue Fender volume pedal is one of the many potentiometer based volume pedals on the market. It has the standard 1/4" Input and Output as well as a Tuner Out. It is durable and has a very nice chrome finish. The footprint is rather large though. Which could be a problem for some. It's great for my very large feet.
It's a very easy to use volume pedal. Has great range for volume swells and is built very well. There is a compartment for the guts so you don't have to take the whole thing apart if you have any problems. I haven't had any problems though in over a year, I'm sure this pedal has many years of life left. It's a very simple and easy to use pedal.
I've used this volume for guitar and bass. It doesn't seem to have any negative effects on my tone and it doesn't make any noise when it is used. It's a very nice pedal for volume swells. I have absolutely no issues with the sound quality of this volume pedal.
I really like the easy access to the guts and the very sturdy construction. Very nice unit. The price is nice as well. About the same as most of the other volume pedals on the market, so the value is great. I tried everything from older and newer Ernie Ball volumes to the optical morley volume pedals and this pedal does exactly what I want in a volume pedal. Has a great range of sweep and is very appealing to the eyes. The construction makes it very hard for dust and dirt to get inside it and that is always a plus. With the string and potentiometer not exposed it's harder for things to go wrong. If something were to happen to my volume or if it were to get stolen. I would definitely buy another one. Absolute best, and my favourite volume pedal on the market.

Fender Volume Pedal Reissue
Volume pedal with tuner output, analog. 1in/1out jack quarter. Korean manufacturing of a vintage model. Very solid, brushed aluminum. Grip of high quality and effective.
no manual, no need!
It does a very good taf, nothing to say. Completely transparent. The pedal travel is not huge but sufficient.
I used it a year around home studio and rehearsal. I resell because of his weight too high (almost two pounds). This is not a criticism, but I need something more portable. I certainly do not redeem this pedal, but I recommend it to any musician who will use it only in one place, or has no transportation worries!

Volume pedal what is most basic: one input, two outputs (and tune out).
Strong case was not afraid to throw it
Because it does not boost function, it needs no power.
His biggest problem: its size! When I see my pedal board, she is still problematic. Fender could have just make the effort to give a length "standard", like that of the cry baby.
We will bright side and say that at least we will not miss it!
In absolute transparency. The race starts well from 0 to 100 to go ... nothing to say, it does what is asked of him.
I tried a Morley with a boost but I wanted a simple volume pedal and especially without power supply. I did not for fear of the dunlop m'emmêler with my cry baby (mouai, a little silly but you never know ^ ^).
I find it a bit expensive to see that it is a volume pedal all there is more stupid, but its strength justifies its price (after two and a half years of use, I can guarantee).
But only weak point: its size. It will really be a problem in the medium term for future additions indeed! I might make my home made pedal in order to optimize the place, it bothers me a bit of a pedal board buy more just for her.
