Alright i play lead guitar my band i need a volume pedal to make me louder during my solos, i've narrowed it down to these three.

Any have experience with any of them? I open to other suggestions, and my guitar has active pickups if that makes any difference, thanx.

Instead of a volume pedal have you thought of getting an EQ pedal? That way you could boost your signal and even be able to tweak the EQ of it further for solos.

Just wondering- have you considered a boost pedal? You could get the same thing as a volume pedal, but instead of having to worry about someone stepping on it, you could just leave it how it is.

I've not tried any of those, but I've heard from people I trust that the EB volume pedals are very good.

Volume pedals a GREAT little things....I recommend the Ernie Ball, but not the active one...you want the passive one

Also, a volume pedal really does best with a tube amp....sooo reactive....I can get perfect cleans on my "uber-high gain" channel by simply rolling it back....much better than channel switching for live application!

You're wanting a boost pedal.

Any suggestions on the EQ or the boost?

boss makes one, so does MXR.
i'm not sure of the model names, but boss's website is www.bossus.com
and MXR effects should be on the Dunlop site
Now officially has too much gear to list

PM me if you want to know about my recording setup

ah i'd say you're better off to go with an EQ than somethin like that.
i searched and the boss one is called the GE-& Equalizer http://www.bossus.com/index.asp?pg=1&tmp=19
and the MXR one is a 10 band EQ.

i'd say do with either one of those, i'm looking into one of the two as well
