OK, so will this work with any stereo expression pedal? What would happen 
if the impedance was wrong? If I buy a Roland or
Technics stereo pedal, chop off the stereo plug and attach a mono one in 
the way described above, with that work? I'm not
massively into the idea of spending $$ on a Line 6 pedal, and the Boss EV 
thingie is even more!
