These paedals are great- sounds like yours is in
need of adjustment or repair- your description does not sound normal for
these- you might try adjusting the position of the pot if possible-
otherwise you can send it to Ernie Ball direct and they will overhaul it for $45
- they can also make it stereo and can also place the jacks on the back instead
of the sides- for more $ of course.
I just got a used ernie ball volume pedal--my first volume
pedal--and find it produces a very slight, gradual increase until the last
1/2" of travel, when it suddenly goes through the entire usable
range--as if it's logarithmic rather than linear. I'm finding
it hard to use effectively for anything but full on-full off shifts,
when what I want is the ability to modulate volume more subtly.
So my question: is this normal? Do I just need to work on my
technique, or is there something I'm missing? another pedal that might
work better for my needs?
thanks for any and all help--
