Re: Which Exp/Sustain/Controller jack pedals, for what, and why?

I find that low-end foot switches from industrial supply houses make the 
best on-off pedals, they only need half a guitar cord. I also source 
broken or obsolete welder pedals for "expression" pedals because only a 3 
conductor mic cable is needed. The potentiometer may be a different 
resistance, but that can be overcome, (if necessary). by resistor

 Tried asking this on the FB group, but Jeff
 Prickchart thought it was too offensive to call the LD FB
 group link spammy (God I miss the good o'l forum days
 where you could actually ask questions and get peoples

 of what I would consider borderline spam, so here goes
 I'm about to
 get some exp pedals or "something to stick into
 exp/controller jack inputs". 
 Got 3 open female
 slots just waiting to be used. 
 Was gonna go for
 3 Roland EV-5's can't find any good current deals on
 'em (I'm cheap, but don't wanna get the cheaper
 equivalent as reviews tell me something like the EV-5 is the
 tried and tested thing to pick), but I don't really need
 3 volume/wah pedals (already got 1 ev-5 hooked up to the
 Rang III, and as has been discussed, can't use more than
 1 on the Rang III unfortunately, due to endless digital
 encoders and non-existant additional jacks). Already have 16
 stomp type buttons that I can basically have control
 anything, be on/off or latching etc. And I got one Roland
 DP-10 sustain/damper pedal (that I love), thinking of maybe
 getting one more, so I have one already to use as keyboard
 sustain, but then I could add another one for
 "sustaining" my guitar/bass or similer, where it
 would be prefered over a traditional button.. So I was
 What sort of
 pedals for those type of exp/control/sustain/damper
 (stereo/trs) jacks do you guys use, what do you prefer to
 use for live performances, with what type of effect(s)/what
 are you typically using said controller pedals
