Hi guys,
I'm after some advice from users of volume pedals. How exciting.

After an active system, low noise, no tone sucking, nice wide range.

Used to play everything from jazz to metal/instrumental rock. A lot of pop stuff too. I play semi pro gigs and teach.

I want it for violining (when i havent got a convenient guitar volume control) and bringing the volume down (surprise!) when I'm trying to take a back seat.

I play Godin (SSS - active preamp) or Ibz artcore (HH - passive) or Ibz S series (HH - passive) into a blackstar s1-45 with serial fx loop.
Ive got a shitload of pedals, but usually end up just using a crybaby.

Thanks for any help you guys can offer.

Are you looking for an actual ACTIVE volume pedal or just one that handles active pickups?
From your description it doesn't look like your looking to boost anything.


Active Volume pedal, not in order to boost, but to act as a lossless buffer

EDIT:

if you're looking for some high end pro gear, check out hilton and goodrich's volume pedals


Looks good, looks like theyre for pedal steel players originally but theyd be great for me too.

Has anybody any expereince with the cheaper but durable makes? Ernie Ball, fender volume etc?

As far as I know Goodrich, Morley, and Visual sound are the only makers of active volume pedals. Fender and EB only make passive units.
