Is It possible to use an Ernie Ball Volume pedal JR (VPJR) as an expression pedal, or indeed the vox volume pedal? I'm looking for a expression oedal to go on my board next to may wah that feels comfortable and looks nice unline the boss expression/volume pedals

There are mods to turn it into an expression pedal. Have you tried using it with the nova system?

no I get the nova system next week, I've seen video's of people using it as an expresion pedal by connecting either a stereo to dual mono lead, or simply by connecting a single lead to the output?

Couldnt you just buy a cheap expression pedal? Or you could always mod the volume pedal.

You'll just have to try it when you get the nova system.

guess I'll buy the boss and lump it, boss stuff is built to last anyways so no worries it'll last, plus I can at least get it locally, I may go to my oca shop and try out either if I can

He doesn't need to, I'm quite certain that the EB VP Jr can be used as an expression pedal.

Yeah, for $80 you sure hope it can.

I don't have to.

ToneCzar sells a reinforced version of the EB VP Jr to be used as an expression pedal with it's existing pedals.
Eventide recommends the EB VP Jr to be used as an expression pedal with it's TimeFactor.
I tried the TimeFactor with the EB VP Jr as an expression pedal.

Hence I don't have to hope.

Maybe, but most expression pedals use a TRS (stereo) connector that connects the ring to the pedal's internal pot and the tip to the wiper of the pot. So a regular volume pedal won't work if a device needs to be connected as described. The M-Audio EX-P is a decent expression pedal that sells for $30.

Also you need to know the pot resistance that works the best. The M-Audio has ~13K pot with a 50K min level adjustment. I built an expression pedal out of a broken Vox Wah with a 110K pot. It had a poor sweep compared to the M-Audio. Both have linear pots.

Ive seen some people use a stereo jack split into to mono leads and connect them, I'm guessing that works as well?

I don't know what type of exp. pedal the Nova System takes (not yet, I will soon, though), but I do know that with the Line 6 M9/M13, the only Ernie Ball pedal that can control the expression effects is the Ernie Ball VP Jr 25k. Some say that that pedal is the best match for controlling the M9/M13's exp. effects.

I have the standard Ernie Ball Passive VP Jr, and that does not work well with it, as the pot impedance is too high.
