Hi there!

I´ve come across a used boss FV-50L volumepedal for about 35$. The thing is that it´s desingned for keyboards and not guitars...would the low impedance cut down my distorsion or do something that destroys my tone? And I can´t try it, the owner lives to far away.

If you got a Send/return in your amp, it will work nicely, otherwise it's working not as good as it is supposed to be
Ibanez ICT-700 WH

Behringer V-Amp Pro

Fender Frontman 25A

Read about pedal impedance in my blog. You may be able to put it after a buffered pedal in your chain. Some pedals have strong drivers and others don't. You will need to experiment since most pedals don't specify how much they can drive.

For $35, I suppose it's worth a punt. If it doesn't work out you can probably reselll it for $20, or take it apart for the components/modding practice.

Ok, I think I will save my money and get one for guitars.

One more question: Is the boss ns-2 any good? I´m getting a Blackstar ht-distx and I noticed that already in "shop level" volumes that it´s a bit noisy. So a noise supressor would be nice.

Just put it in your FX loop on the Bandit. It will work fine.

I don't think a NS-2 is going to make the amp less noisy unless you put it in the loop.

I´m going to put it behind or before(wich option is right?) the DistX pedal to eliminate feedback.
